We welcome Kevin Pang to discuss his book A Very Chinese Cookbook: 100 Recipes from China and Not China. He'll be joined in conversation with Alex Beggs.

About the book: James Beard Award winner Kevin Pang and his dad Jeffrey, hosts of the hit America's Test Kitchen series Hunger Pangs, show you the way to delicious Chinese cooking in this accessible, funny, heartfelt cookbook.

From American Chinese classics (General Tso's Chicken) to Sichuan street foods (Dan Dan Mian) and Hong Kong dim sum favorites (Shu Mai), A Very Chinese Cookbook is ideal for both the Chinese food-curious and experienced cooks seeking a weekend soup dumpling project.

Chock full of tips, techniques, stories, and friendly ingredient guides, with over 100 of ATK's trademark rigorous recipes--and even a magic trick with fortune cookies--the cookbook in your hands is very practical, very personal, and very Chinese indeed.
