Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With charm, style, wit, and really great writing, Chang takes us into her world, sharing stories of the foods she loves (some totally and happily beyond reason) and the recipes she treasures, and with each story we think a little more about ourselves, our families, and the food that nourishes us in every way. If you haven't read Chang before, you'll be captivated; if you have, you'll be delighted to have so many of her stories in one place—next to your most comfortable armchair." ~Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table"Be prepared to lose yourself in A Spoonful of Promises. Poetic, poignant, and addictive, Chang's essays are a delicious reminder of how cooking comforts and connects us, and ultimately provides some of our most treasured memories. This is a classic destined to be an essential book for every food lover." ~Grace Young, author of Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge and The Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen"Susan Chang takes readers on an eclectic voyage through her culinary memory, from childhood recollections (and recipes) of wonton soup to savory chard tart. And a story about Ring Dings eaten with popcorn? I'm there! It's a beautifully told, evocative book to savor." ~Melissa Clark, author of Cook This Now
