When Linda Furiya decided to move to China with her boyfriend at the age of thirty, she hoped to find romance and ethnic kinship. Expecting common ground with locals as an Asian American, Furiya struggled with her ambition as a food writer in a nation where notions of race and gender are set in stone. During the six years she lived in Beijing and Shanghai, Furiya experienced a wide range of experiences—loneliness, isolation, friendship, and love—tied together by one common theme: food.

Ultimately, Furiya surpassed these challenges and found inspiration from the courageous Chinese women who graced her life. The sensuous experience of preparing and eating authentic Chinese cuisine follows Furiya throughout her journey, and ultimately reveals the intimate, nurturing side of the Chinese culture and people. Part insightful memoir, part authentic cookbook, How to Cook a Dragon is a revealing look at race, love, and food in China.

Book Description:

"Syndicated food columnist Furiya once again explores her American identity and her Japanese heritage but this time from the perspective of a woman, not the little girl who gave us the insightful and funny childhood food memoir Bento Box in the Heartland. Furiya, who abandoned her life in America to join her boyfriend in China, recounts the challenges she faced from naive expectations that her Asian background would provide common ground with the locals, to feelings of isolation, loneliness, and difficulties that come with language barriers. She also touches on food as the tie that binds her life experiences...Furiya does a fine job of revealing her conflicted feelings about living abroad, being a dutiful daughter, and developing her identity...A dozen or so recipes accompany each chapter. Recommended for large public libraries."
