I’ll be speaking at various events in China next month as part of the Bookworm Literary Festival. One of the highlights will be a lunch at one of my favourite Chengdu restaurants, Yu’s Family Kitchen (there is a chapter about Chef Yu Bo and his cooking in Shark’s Fin and Sichuan Pepper). Click on the links for each city for more information.

These are my plans so far:

Who would have guessed that a perfectly innocent Chinese recipe could spark off a whole host of semi-pornographic reveries?!
