Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts: A Literary Cookbook

Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts: A Literary Cookbook Reviewed on Quill and Quire.

chinesefairy“Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts: A Literary Cookbook is a delightfully quirky hybrid of fables and recipes that will satisfy those hungry for both knowledge and culinary inspiration.”

From the publisher: A fun book for parents and children to enjoy and treasure. The fairy tales and folklore of China—like stories told throughout the ages everywhere—bring the fantastic world of ghosts and demons into our everyday lives. So it is not surprising that food makes an appearance here—each story is followed by a simple recipe.

Chinese Fairy Tale Feasts is a creative book which folds fairy tales into a cookbook of kid-friendly recipes. Most of the thirteen fairy tales included in the book have been adapted and retold from original sources by master storyteller, Paul Yee—a few are original to this text, but remain true to the spirit of the collection. They are accompanied by an introduction by Jane Yolen, one our most celebrated folklorists. The splendid illustrations by Shaoli Wang bring the collection to life.

Even the cover is tempting for those who love fairy tales.
