About the author: Linda Lau spent more than thirty four years writing about food for Sunset Magazine, a lifestyle primer on how to live in the Western United States. As Recipe Editor and food writer, she wrote food stories and developed and tested thousands of recipes for the home cook. She loved exploring ethnic cuisines, especially Asian. In 1987 she convinced her editor to let her go to China and as a result produced “From China’s Kitchens to Ours,” the first story written by an American magazine about home cooking in China. She also served as a special consultant to cookbooks such as Sunset Chinese, Sunset Oriental, Sunset Wok, and contributed to the Sunset Cookbook annuals and other publications. Her articles have also appeared in Cooking Light, Flavor and Fortune, and Yoga Journal. For more information, please visit Linda’s website http://thehakkacookbook.com.
