[Vogue Hong Kong] The Best Books to Take on Holiday This Summer

Vogue Hong Kong selected “Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune” as one of their best books to take on holiday this summer:

Perfect for foodies looking for a delectable read to get their teeth into, this novel follows chef Natalie Tan back to her home of San Francisco’s Chinatown upon news of her estranged mother’s death. There, she discovers that the neighbourhood is a far cry from its vibrant heyday, as well as the fact that she has inherited her grandmother’s restaurant. But before she can reopen it, she is told by the local mystic that she must first cook three recipes for the neighbours who cared for her mother in her absence. Sprinkled with real recipes and hints of magic realism throughout, this tale of homecoming makes for a light bite to satiate yourself with.
