About the Author

Belinda Hulin got a wok as a high school graduation present and she’s been captivated by, and cooking, Asian cuisine ever since. After dining and shopping for exotic victuals in the Chinatown neighborhoods of New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, Houston and Vancouver, Hulin finally got to tour mainland China and Hong Kong. Before traveling to Guangdong province to adopt daughter Sophie, Hulin and her husband Jim Crissman sampled Imperial banquet dishes and modern Chinese bistro fare in Beijing, ate snack pancakes at the Great Wall, traditional congee and dim sum in Foshan, world-cuisine delicacies in Hong Kong and a full complement of authentic Cantonese fare in Guangzhou. She had the distinction of being the only new mother to get a chef’s tour of the kitchen at the White Swan Hotel. Hulin has appeared on radio and television several times during her tenure as food editor and features editor of The Florida Times-Union, and as the first editor of the Jacksonville edition of Skirt! She’s served as an adjunct or visiting lecturer at three universities, has lectured at conferences and writers group meetings and presented a seminar on writing at the International Conference on Teaching and Learning. In support of her cookbooks, Hulin has arranged book signings; donated signed copies of her books to charity auctions and performed a cooking demonstration at the Southern Women’s Show cooking stage. Hulin currently lives in Atlantic Beach, Florida with her husband and daughter. Kian Lam Kho, a Singapore native who now makes New York City his home, is the author of the food blog He apprenticed under Chef Josh Capon at the neow defunct restaurant Canteen in SoHo, New York, and prepares meals for private parties as well as exploring all aspects of Chinese cooking. He teaches cooking classes at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City. Liesa Cole is the photographer behind several books, including Knack Quick & Easy Cooking (Knack Books) and Seduced by Bacon and Soup for Everybody (both The Lyons Press).

HASH(0xb68fa0e4) out of 5 stars This is a great cookbook. March 14 2012
By Jamie Hord - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been learning to cook authentic traditional Chinese cuisines about 2 years now and the recipes in this cookbook are very much authentic Chinese cuisines found throwout China although they are modern recipes not traditional recipes cooked mostly by younger Chinese. Although they are many traditional holiday/festival foods in it. I am from Georgia, USA and back in April of 2011 I spent 28 days in Tianjin, China and I took this cookbook with me to show it to my Chinese friends I was staying with in Tianjin and they confirmed the recipes in this cookbook are authentic although they are modern Chinese recipes. I am still looking to learn more traditional recipes.
