Publisher's Summary

This is the captivating story of Xiaomei Martell, who was born in one of China’s most remote regions just two years before Mao launched the Cultural Revolution.

The youngest of four daughters her name means ‘Little Sister’ her family had no money or connections, yet they raised her with a thirst for knowledge and a love of food, ranging from the Lion’s Head meatballs her Uncle Deng cooked to the ‘phoenix feet’ that apparently cured wrinkles, by way of hundred-year-old eggs.

Xiaomei’s entertaining and inspiring story takes us to a world where children play with painted pig toes, dumplings give you perfect ears and rather than saying hello, you ask ‘chilema’, or ‘Have you eaten?’

    "Lion's Head, Four Happiness"

    This might appeal to you if you like cooking, particularly Chinese or Mongolian cooking - but I found it was just too much about food to capture my interest.
