The Last Chinese Chef

The Last Chinese Chef: a novel
by Nicole Mones

Maggie McElroy, a California food critic, travels to China to settle a paternity claim against her late husband's estate. While there, she also covers the story of Sam Liang, a rising culinary star. As Maggie uncovers her late husband's past in Beijing, she is drawn into the sensuous world of Chinese food, and the history and meaning of each dish through the eyes of Sam Liang.

By the author of Lost in Translation, this is an intelligent love story full of culinary and cultural detail.
