Kitchen Chinese: What’s cooking

By Ann | May 9, 2010

Apologies for the recent paucity of posts, mes amis. I just got back from a whirlwind trip to the States and I am still struggling to catch up with everything that happened while I was away. It was a lovely trip — well worth the backlog! — capped off by a terrific reading at Borders in Washington, D.C., where I was thrilled to see so many friendly faces. Thanks to all who came for making the event so awesome!

Meanwhile, as my hypothalamus struggles to readjust, here’s a round-up of nice news about Kitchen Chinese.

–A Q&A in the Washingtonian magazine.

–Another Q&A from the Washington Post Express (thanks Amy Rogers Nazarov!).

–And yet another Q&A! This one is from Book Club Girl’s blog, and is an interview with my generous writer friend, Claire Cook. If you don’t know her funny, heartfelt novels, I recommend them — her latest, Seven Year Switch, will be published in June.

–Parisian-American super-blogger and cookbook author David Lebovitz is reading Kitchen Chinese!

–How do you say Kitchen Chinese in Dutch?

Geluks Koekje translates to “fortune cookie.” It’s published by De Kern in the Netherlands and is currently available in Dutch bookstores.

Finally, thanks for reading, mes amis, and for all your support. I’ll be back soon with some pretty pictures of coast and wild sea and clay oyster beds and rough mounds of shells from my recent trip to Brittany.

    “Fortune Cookie”? I guess your next book could be about a Dutch-American young woman learning about low countries culture through its food — you could call it “The Wooden Shoes.” Anyway, I love Holland and am so pleased that from Rotterdam to Utrecht to Groningen, people will have a chance to read “Kitchen Chinese” in Dutch! Gefeliciteerd! (That’s congratulations — I just looked it up.)
