Book Description: Sensuous, inspiring, and wholly original, SUSUR: A CULINARY LIFE celebrates one of the most compelling chefs of our time.Susur Lee has built an international reputation with his bold interpretation of classical Chinese cooking, dubbed nouvelle chinoise. SUSUR: A CULINARY LIFE is an intimate look at this culinary master, in two lavishly illustrated volumes that are joined at the spine and designed to be read in tandem. Book 1 recounts Susur'¬?s life story, a circuitous journey that has taken him from Hong Kong to France to Toronto. Book 2 features a sumptuous array of more than 120 of Susur'¬?s most sought-after recipes. Together, the two books create a bold yet nuanced work that is as innovative as the chef himself.
