Carolyn Phillips

Food writer

The author of a shelf full of cookbooks in her native Chinese—and in a perfect world they would all be translated into English—we are lucky in that she did manage to publish at least one in the U.S. with the help of her husband, Tien Chi Chen, and Prof. Rose Tseng. Like the other women on this list, she pulled no punches and never talked down to her audience, but rather showcased the brilliance of China’s cuisines in a way that even a beginner would find easy to master.
