" . . . Before Martin Yan wisecracked his way into the hearts of PBS viewers in the early ’80s, and long before Ming Tsai spread the gospel of East Meets West cooking on the Food Network, there was Fu Pei-mei. Fifteen years after her death in 2004, Fu remains the most famous culinary figure Taiwan has ever produced. As the host of the country’s first cooking show, she was on television for about 40 years—nearly 2,000 episodes instructing on more than 4,000 Chinese dishes, and she never wore the same apron twice, it seemed, in all that time. . . "

Loved Luke Tsai's homage to Fu Pei Mei. I was given a set of her cookbooks in the mid-80s and learned much about regional Chinese cuisine, not just the recipes from them.

She Raised a Generation of Taiwanese Home Cooks

Then she taught their American kids to cook too. Meet the remarkable Fu Pei-mei.
