In Person Author Talk: Sarah & Kaitlin Leung, The Woks of Life
Feb 7, 2023
06:30 pm - 08:00 pm
We are so excited to welcome Sarah & Kaitlin Leung of the acclaimed blog The Woks of Life in celebration of their debut cookbook, The Woks of Life: Recipes to Know and Love from a Chinese American Family. In this brilliant collection, you’ll find a compendium of go-to, accessible, and essential Chinese recipes, from Pork & Shrimp Siu Mai and Spicy Beef Biang Biang Noodles to Cantonese Pork Belly Fried Rice and Salt-and-Pepper Fried Oyster Mushrooms. There are also helpful tips and tricks throughout, including an elaborate rundown of the Chinese pantry, explanations on essential tools (including the all-important wok), and game-changing Chinese cooking secrets like how to “velvet” meat to make it extra tender and juicy. Whether you’re new to Chinese cooking or you already dabble in bean paste and chili oil, you’ll find inspiration from this chorus of voices, and trustworthy recipes that will become a part of your family story, too.
You'll have two options for joining us: Book Included, or Author Talk Only. Sarah and Kaitlin will sign your books after the talk.
Because Book Larder is a small space and we keep the door closed during author talks, a well-fitted face mask is strongly encouraged to be worn by all event guests. Thank you!
Reservations are non-refundable, and can include a signed copy of the $35 book. Can't attend but still want a signed copy? Order here for shipping or in-store pickup.
