The Vegan Chinese Kitchen
Hannah Che's debut cookbook was consistently ranked one of 2022's best cookbooks, and for good reason. Hannah's storytelling and recipes show us that nearly every dish in the Chinese repertoire can be replicated in a meatless way. While many Chinese dishes are naturally vegan, Hannah's skill in embracing a modern way of eating only enhances traditional recipes. Explore a whole new world of flavors and ingredients at this special cooking demonstration!
