Kosher Chinese, a great read!

Since I have publicly proclaimed myself a Judeophile on my Facebook page, my friends have been flooding me with Jewish related events.

Tonight I attended a book reading event with Michael Levy, author of Kosher Chinese, a witty and fun read about an American Jew’s experience with the Peace Corps in China (middle of nowhere, not coastal) at Books, Inc; a cute and cozy bookstore in the middle of San Francisco. [I know that was a really long run-on sentence, English is not my first language].

Here is a pic from the event.

Michael provided some damn funny commentary and of course, because he is a teacher, a quick quiz on China.  I think I got a few questions correct, am definitely not the expert on China.  Michael knows more about the Chinese than I do!  I find his perspective on China very refreshing and an interesting read and highly recommend it for those wanting to learn more about China.

    This sounds like an interesting book. When I read the blog title, I thought you were talking about a cookbook! I actually have a Chinese kosher cookbook from 1963.

    Hi Xiao Ming. It was nice meeting you at the event! Good luck putting together the puzzle of your family’s past. Hope our paths can cross again.
