"When Maggie McElroy, a widowed American food writer, learns of a Chinese paternity claim against her late husband's estate, she has to go immediately to Beijing. She asks her magazine for time off, but her editor counters with an assignment: to profile the rising culinary star Sam Liang." "In China Maggie unties the knots of her husband's past, finding out more than she anticipated about him and about herself. With Sam as her guide, she is also drawn deep into a world of food rooted in centuries of history and philosophy. To her surprise she begins to be transformed by the cuisine, by Sam's family - a querulous but loving pack of cooks and diners - and most of all by Sam himself."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

Not a lot of surprises in the story, but the Chinese culture and history was interesting. Sent me on a search for authentic Chinese food in the Triangle. ( )

In this novel, the main character is a young widow and food writer who finds herself in China for both food-writing work and for personal reasons.

The basic plot was somewhat predictable, but I really enjoyed the descriptions of authentic Chinese cuisine and its intertwinings with the culture there. ( )

The writing is a little wooden in a chick lit sort of way. The characters never felt terribly real to me. However, the food descriptions are lovely - it made me want to eat my way through China. ( )

Nicole Mones was a participant in a very interesting panel discussion I attended at L.A. Times Festival of books. I'm impressed with how articulate, intelligent, and warm she is. I hope these traits come across in her books--I'm really looking forward to reading what she has to say.

5/2 I finished this book today and I wasn't disappointed. I really liked it! I'm going to get another book by her immediately. Thanks for the recommendation, Teri! ( )

Apprentices have asked me, what is the most exalted peak of cuisine? Is it the freshest ingredients, the most complex flavors? Is it the rustic, or the rare? It is none of these. The peak is neither eating nor cooking, but the giving and sharing of food. Great food should never be taken alone. What pleasure can a man take in fine cuisine unless he invites cherished friends, counts the days until the banquet, and composes and anticipatory poem for his letter of invitation? - Liang Wei, The Last Chinese Chef, pub. Peking, 1925
