Saturday 5/18 from 10:30am to 1:30pm
New School of Cooking Pasadena
Each month we discuss a significant cookbook and prepare a group meal adapted from its recipes. Here’s what’s cooking this month:
Joyce Chen Cook Book, 1962
When Joyce Chen opened her first restaurant in Cambridge, MA in 1958 she introduced Chinese food to the American public. In 1962 she released her first cookbook, Joyce Chen Cook Book, with recipes using familiar ingredients, cooking tips, and important culinary traditions. In addition to being a restaurateur and author, Chen was a chef, television personality and entrepreneur. Let’s explore her story and prepare a feast. ($115)
