4.5 Stars! A Treasure!

"Food was always to be shared...The high point of every meal was never the food itself, he taught us, but always the act of sharing it." One of my favorite things to read about is cultural diversity. This was a wonderful story that describes culture through food and its preparation with an extra dollop of a blooming romance. I am not one to like the philosophical passages some books place at the beginning of their chapters but I found these passages in the story quite insightful and useful. Although not much of a cook myself I was not put off or bored with the cooking phases of the story--the author artfully placed them without losing the interest of the reader. Another thing I appreciated about the author, she didn't show the main characters' love affair with China at the expense of the American culture. It shows how you can appreciate another culture as not being better but just different
