The Hakka Cookbook is here

The Hakka Cookbook arrived from China last week.  Whew!  I was beginning to worry that the ship might arrive late, and I would have no books for my scheduled events. Books should be making their way into the stores. Heard that Powell’s in Portland had a noticeable display.

I have been busy. My first radio interview comes in a few days with On the Menu, a food and travel show broadcast globally.  Planning the debut presentation of my book at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco on September 29. Heard that there could be as many as 150 people. A bit scarey. Need to polish my public speaking skills.

I was invited to a dinner sponsored by Tsung Tsin Association in Honolulu and decided to go. Will meet some of the Hakka folks featured in my book. Planning local book signing parties. Scheduling events for a November book tour to the Oregon, Washington, and Vancouver, BC.  For details on my upcoming events, check Events Calendar. Hope to meet you at one soon.
