New Fuchsia Dunlop book

i had dinner with a colleague who knows Fuchsia yesterday and got very excited when he told me her new book will be out in a couple of weeks!

Well a bit of googling told me that he'd got the wrong end of the stick. But her blog tells me that she is doing the photo shoot for it and the Internet says it will be out in the UK next Spring, published by Bloomsbury. It's called Every Grain of Rice and will be recipes from all over China.

We are hopefully having dinner in the next few weeks so I'll be able to tell you more then.

      Oooh! Oooh and double Ooooh!

      Wonder how long it'll take to get over here?

      Er, I mean Ooops, Ooops and double Ooops.

      I guess I should pay more attention when I read. So now I'll go look for it on Amazon.

        Amazon UK is probably your best bet, pub date 7 June, and my copy better get here as soon after that as possible. DYING to get my mitts on it.

        1. re: oakjoan

            I don't even see a listing there for the new book.

              At Amazon UK you can sign up to be notified when it's available, Feb. 2012. There are other books with the same name, though, be careful.
              I cooked my 1st Fuschia Dunlop recipe ever just the other night -- Beef w/Cumin, delicious! (Even used the wok I bought for COTM.)
              I found it online, but it's from her "Revolutionary..." book.

                1. re: emily

                  I think it's getting a simultaneous release in the US as well. seem to have it listed with the same publication date.

                bt, perhaps you'd like to celebrate w a trip across the pond...I bet you'd love this cooking class:

                  Nice! But there is pork and only one glass of wine - will pass this time:)

                  1. re: Breadcrumbs

                    Oh, wow! Wouldn't that be just fabulous! Wonder if maybe she'll do some classes here to promote the US edition?

                    1. re: JoanN

                      That would be, given time and pecunia enough. Having kicked myself since forever for not having gone to a cooking class Jane Grigson gave at Macy's in SF when I had the chance, I'd definitely go to see her if remotely possible.

                    2. re: Breadcrumbs

                      Thanks for posting that Bc. It's a couple of days after my birthday so I might treat myself.

                      1. re: greedygirl

                        I would be insanely jealous if you took this class, but I hope you do and tell us all about it!


                        1. re: The Dairy Queen

                          Count me in the superjealous group too...

                  2. Oh my... that is extremely exciting. Thank you for the head's up.

                    1. What wonderful news! Thanks for letting us know.

                      I wouldn't be at all surprised, though, if the title changes before publication. Or it might just be that Norton will change the title of the US edition. A book with that same title won a James Beard award in 1999: "Every Grain of Rice: A Taste of Our Chinese Childhood in America"
                      by Ellen Blonder & Annabel Low. Although it sometimes happens that two books will have the same title, I'm sure the editor and publisher would want to avoid in any way they can having Dunlop's new book confused with another award-winning Chinese cookbook.

                        You may well be right, Joan, but it's currently listed as "Every Grain of Rice" on


                        1. re: greedygirl

                          Yes, I saw that. Not yet listed on the Norton Web site, though, nor on And I'm absolutely certain that, unless there's some kind of a bidding war for the book which would be highly unlikely, that Norton will be publishing, as they have her other three, the new one in the States. I just hope that we don't have to wait too much beyond publication of the UK edition for the US one. I'm guessing that with the success of her other books on this side, they'll want to get it into the stores as quickly as possible.

                      2. Thanks for the alert, GG. How exciting. Just signed up to be notified...
