This week it's a look at the life of a culinary innovator. Cecilia Chiang was a pioneer in bringing regional Chinese food to America with the opening of The Mandarin, her San Francisco restaurant. It became a culinary landmark and Cecilia became a leader in the city's food community. Her book,The Seventh Daughter: My Culinary Journey from Beijing to San Franciscotells her story. Cecilia's recipe forLion's Head, a Shanghai specialty, is from the book.
