Jen Lin-Lin is an American Born Chinese (ABC) just like me. So, I can relate to her wanting to know more about Chinese’s culture and history.

Her book, Serve the People will take you through her journey in Chinese cuisine from her studies in Hualian Cooking School in Beijing, learning northwest-style noodles under renowned noodle maker Chef Zhang, growing rice in Ping’an, and interning with Chef Jereme Lung in his fine-dining restaurant, Whampoa Club in Shanghai.

Throughout her travels in China she reflects on her relationships with China’s common folks. Each one has their own stories of how they came to be chefs and expounds on their dreams of a better life in a country that is changing so rapidly.
