We spend the hour with the iconic Grace Young to talk about her remarkable career as a writer and educator of Chinese food in America. She delves into what Chinatown represents, the people-to-people businesses that make it unique, and the current impact of Covid on the community. She is the author of the ground-breaking The Breath of a WokThe Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen, and Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge. Her latest project is Coronavirus: Chinatown Stories and is heading a nonprofit initiative to feed hungry people with food bought from restaurants in Chinatown. You can learn more about that here
