Welcome to our fourth installment of Table Talk! We're excited to host Kian Lam Kho, author of "Phoenix Claws and Jade Trees: Essential Techniques of Authentic Chinese Cooking." Known as 'redcook' by the Chowhound community, he's been a valued member since 2008, and his book was "Cookbook of the Month" for February 2016. http://www.chowhound.com/post/februar....

Kian Lam Kho is a private chef, food writer, teacher and food consultant specializing in Chinese cuisine. He is the author of "Phoenix Claws and Jade Trees: Essential Techniques of Authentic Chinese Cooking," and the creator of the James Beard Foundation Awards nominated Chinese home cooking blog Red Cook (http://www.redcook.net) and is one of the authors of Knack Chinese Cooking: A Step-by-step Guide to Authentic Favorites Made Easy. He lives in New York City and teaches Chinese cooking at the Institute of Culinary Education and the Brooklyn Kitchen. He appears regularly as speaker and discussion panelist on Chinese cuisine and its history. He helped launch New York's first Yunnan restaurant, Lotus Blue, as a consulting chef. He is also a frequent guest chef and caters private multi-course Chinese banquets.

Kian will be happy to answer a variety of questions from ingredients and methods to the process of creating and publishing a cookbook, and more.

As a 'thank you', we're giving two lucky members a copy of his cookbook. To participate, simply send us your questions and we’ll email you a link to enter for a chance to win. We’ll be taking your questions from now through March 28th, and we'll share Kian’s answers on April 1st.
