This book features 150 classic Cantonese family style recipes, written in the detailed instruction from Grace Young’s parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and close family friends. This book, and it’s recipes, highlight the Chinese tradition of using foods to support the body and soul. Built on extensive research, and featuring vintage family photographs, Young works to honor her ancestors through recipe and tradition. 

This book is signed by the author, and was selected from the collection of legendary vintage cookbook dealer Bonnie Slotnick. 

In 1997, Bonnie Slotnick opened a bookstore in a basement office on Washington Place and Barrow Street. Bonnie Slotnick specializes in out-of-print, high quality used cookbooks. With an inventory of nearly 5,000 books, Bonnie was generous enough to let us peek into her personal collection to curate our selection for this project. Today, you can find Bonnie and her collection of cookbooks at 28 E. 2nd Street between 1st and 2nd Ave in New York’s East Village.
