The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones
The Last Chinese Chef

Xiaoyan, May 14, 2007

In her third novel on China, Nicole Mones again demonstrates her understanding and appreciation of the Chinese culture. "The Last Chinese Chef" breaks the myth of Chinese cooking for the average American. Unlike the stereotypical carton-boxed, fortune-cookied greasy food that Americans have come to love, Chinese Haute Cuisine is in fact a tradition, a business, an art, a relationship, a family history, a competition, a love story...all on one table, to be cooked, served, and shared by all.
