Stir-Fry Talk, Eat, and Read
The Chinese Historical Society of Southern California is hosting an author's talk with Grace Young, who just came out with the cookbook "Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge." Along with authentic Chinese stir-fry recipes, Young also shares stories from Chinese home cooks around the world -- including those who live outside of China and incorporate local touches to the traditional Chinese stir fry. Her research for this book took her to places as unexpected as Trinidad and Holland. The event takes place at the Plum Tree Inn in Chinatown (913 North Broadway, Los Angeles, 90012) at 1 p.m. Tickets are $50 each and will include a seven-course Chinese meal and an autographed copy of "Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge." RSVP by e-mail [chssc@hotmail.com] or phone (323) 222-0856.
