Kitchen Chinese, Ann Mah's funny and poignant first novel about a young Chinese-American woman who travels to Beijing to discover food, family, and herself, is a delight, complete with mouthwatering descriptions of Asian culinary delicacies, from Peking duck and Mongolian hot pot to the colorful, lesser known ants in a tree, that will delight foodies everywhere. Reminiscent of Elizabeth Gilbert's runaway best seller Eat, Pray, Love, Mah's tale of clashing cultures, rival siblings, and fine dining is an unforgettable, unexpectedly sensual listening experience - the story of one woman's search for identity and purpose in an exotic and faraway land.
