Thanks Jocelyn!



  1. Thank you so much for sharing the post with your readers, and many thanks for the interview! I’m truly in awe of how you’ve managed to translate ancient Chinese into such lovely prose, and your work will pave the way for more people to understand the essence of one of the finest culinary traditions in the world.
