An exploration of Asian chili sauces with Diana Kuan

‚ÄúAfter college, I was working at a bookstore and I was reading a lot of Gourmet magazine. I was reading a lot of MFK Fisher, a lot of Laurie Colwin‚ÄĒand they are just amazing writers, and I was like 'OK, the more I read about food the more I want to write about food.'"

This week, we're excited to welcome Diana Kuan to SALT + SPINE, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks.

Diana Kuan is the author of The Chinese Takeout Cookbook and Red Hot Kitchen: Classic Asian Chili Sauces from Scratch and Delicious Dishes to Make With Them.
