Last March Jennifer 8 Lee released her book on the Chinese American Culture, The Fortune Cookie Chronicles. It not only deals with the history of Chinese American’s but also with many cultural aspects. It covers foods, and nagging questions like what IS the origin of that pesky little fortune cookie?
As a writer for the New York Times and a Chinese American, Jennifer Lee was able to give a broad overview of her culture. And of American culture in general. After all, what’s more “American” than Chinese take-out. The Fortune Cookie itself is more American than Chinese!
One of the fortune cookie companies she mentions in her book is Fancy Fortune Cookies, the worlds first and only gourmet flavored, colored fortune cookie bakery! Thanks Jennifer and Congrats on the stellar success of you book! Her fun little book made #26 on the New York Times Bestseller list!
