  1. Lucky you! Can't wait to read about your visit, as well as Dunlop's new memoir! I love the little stories she puts in Land of Plenty and Revolutionary Chinese--looking forward to seeing full-length material from her.

    1. It's been published already and on the shelves, at least here in DC. I skimmed the book last night. Her memoir makes you appreciate the art of cooking -- and Chef Chen's skill on Iron Chef. As those techniques he on the show used to adjust flavors were intriguing yet fuzzy to me; she goes into detail about those aspects of Sichuan cooking. Have a good trip and send us a food report when you get back. :-)
