I’ve spent the last few weeks suffering from bronchiospasms (a.k.a. coughing fits). So I’m forced to stay in bed to rest. As a result, I thought I would take the opportunity to put together a page of all the media stuff on The Fortune Cookie Chronicles online. And it’s not until you see it all […]
From the Columbus Paper! (No, not Ohio, in Georgia). It’s more a summary, but I like the fact she quotes on my obsession point at the end. I’d thought no one has ever noticed. Columbus (Georgia) Ledger-Enquirer April 3, 2008 It’s Our Kind of Chinese By Sonya Sorich Nearly everybody has one. Maybe yours is […]
Washington Times: “With wit and style, she delights with tales about Chinese food in America, and its sometimes hilarious origins.”Sunday, October 26th, 2008
This is from August 31, 2008. It’s a very nice review. One of the kindest in how stylishly it’s written. Washington Times Sunday, August 31, 2008 Chinese food in America By Corinna Lothar Jennifer 8. Lee (8 really is her middle name; when pronounced in Chinese the number denotes prosperity) is a special kind of […]
The Times of Trenton: Readers are likely to increase their tips after reading about the plight of Chinese restaurant workersSunday, October 26th, 2008
This is the same as my Newsday review. But wanted to put it down, again. The Times of Trenton March 23, 2008 Chinese food book has right ingredients By HELEN McALPIN Years ago, at a Japanese Benihana steakhouse, my mother-in-law mortified her children by asking for fortune cookies at the end of the meal. As […]
Just discovered this too. I was reviewed by School Libarary Journal as an adult book for high school students. I should really look through Nexis more often. I like this: “This title will appeal to teens who are interested in history, Chinese culture, and, of course, cuisine.” I liked this line too: “Recommend it to […]
Only in looking through Nexis, did I discover this Toronto Star review from July, subtitled “A female trio of Chinese food lovers â€“ two in China itself and one in New York â€“ explore the eats and the culture.” It reviews my book, Fuschia Dunlop’s “Shark’s Fin and Sichuan Pepper: A Memoir of Eating in […]
And here is my Colorado Matters Interview with KCFR Colorado Public Radion from May 8, 2008. Denver is interesting because it was home to one of the most vicious race riots against the Chinese in 1880. The picture below is drawn from those riots.
And I should put up the Chef’s Table interview from April 19, 2008 [here’s the audio file]. I actually did the interview when Barack Obama was giving his famous race speech across the street at Constitution Hall. Lots of police. Here is the description of the episode. Food is all encompassing…how we buy it, store […]
I just realized I never posted my interview with WBUR’s, Here and Now, from August 4, 2008 (loved listening to the show when I was in college). I actually did the interview with Emiko Tamagawa in March at Zoe’s Chinese restaurant in Somerville, where the Chinese people go to eat. But it ran a few […]
I learned that Oliver Stone was advised to watch my Colbert interview for his appearance on October 9 for his film, W, as a coaching example. He was also advised to watch, in contrast, Richard Branson.
