Cooking Demo: Hakka Chinese Soul Food

Long-time Sunset Magazine food writer and recipe editor Linda Lau Anusasananan, author of “The Hakka Cookbook: Chinese Soul Food from around the World,” talks about the cuisine and cooks up some samples!

Learn about the Chinese migrants known as the Hakka, the history of the people, and Linda's global journey to find her Hakka identity through food. Linda will then demonstrate how to cook three simple dishes. Recipes will be included--and so will a tasting!

This free cooking demonstration is for adults and teens, and is made possible thanks to generous funding from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.  No preregistration is necessary to attend, but seating is limited.

August 13Monday 6:30 to 8 pm at Menlo Park Library, 800 Alma St., Menlo Park, CA 94025.  650. 330. 2501. Contact: John Weaver
