Phoenix Claws and Jade Trees

Nostalgia and yearning for the flavors of home can push us to do things we never would have imagined. Just ask Kian Lam Kho. Kho's family is from Fujian province in Southeast China but he was born in Indonesia and grew up in Singapore. After emigrating to the US in the 1970's, Kho decided it was better to write his family for family recipes than to stomach the Cantonese fare at his neighborhood Chinese joint in Boston. His beautiful new book, Phoenix Claws and Jade Trees, is a guide to making Chinese cuisine at home. Find a recipe for his Three-Cup Chicken on the Good Food blog and more tips on Kho's blog, Red Cook.
