  1. I was the editor of The Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen by Grace Young--was it really 12 years ago? I'm so proud that it is one of your favorite books, it certainly is one of mine. The author, Grace Young, was writing from the heart and mind, and that is one of the reasons the book has such longevity. What is your favorite thing about it?
