The Cookbook Club: Joyce Chen Cook Book
When Joyce Chen opened her first restaurant in Cambridge, MA in 1958 she introduced Chinese food to the American public. In 1962 she released her first cookbook, Joyce Chen Cook Book, with recipes using familiar ingredients, cooking tips, and important culinary traditions. In addition to being a restaurateur and author, Chen was a chef, television personality and entrepreneur. Let's explore her story and prepare a feast.
