April BiblioBites Book Group

April is out to lunch month. Our theme will be Chinese Cuisine and we will be meeting for lunch at:
Feng Shui Restaurant in Chelmsford
on April 24th @ 11:30.

Our Book Discussion will center around a fiction title:
The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones.

Last Chinese Chef

 

 

This alluring novel of friendship, love, and cuisine takes place in present day China but also gives us a window to the cuisine and lives of the great Chinese Chefs for the Emperor before they became enemies of the State in the Mao years. Author Nicole Mones lived in China for 18 years and wrote about Chinese food for Gourmet magazine. After reading this book, you’ll have a new understanding and appreciation for Chinese cuisine and culture.

Barbara & Andrea give it two thumbs up!

Cooking Challenge:
It’s officially spring so we challenge everyone to try their hand at making a spring roll or a Chinese dumpling.  There are multiple recipes and videos available on the internet and of course there are many books to borrow from the library. But we are flexible – you could try a Chinese dish you enjoy instead. We’ll discuss the book and your endeavors into Chinese cooking on Friday, April 24th.
