Food writer

A teacher and author of seven great cookbooks, hers was (I’m pretty sure) the first title to take a deep dive into China’s way with wheat. She should also be lauded for Florence Lin’s Chinese Vegetarian Cookbook (1983), which it was decades ahead of her time. An incredibly warm and funny woman, she ended up being a friend and mentor. Like most of the authors on this list, she was also a feminist with a keen intellect who took great pride in her homeland.
