Buwei Yang Chao
Chinese medical doctor and author of English-language books including the classic Chinese cookbook, How To Cook And Eat In Chinese.
Autobiography of a Chinese Woman by Buwei Yang Chao, Put into English by Her Husband Yuenren Chao
One of the earliest hits on the net for BYC was this book, as referenced in the syllabus for a history class at the College of William and Mary, “Women in Modern China” (History 490C05, Fall 1995, prof. Ernst Schwintzer) [arc]
A classic. Invention (as a result of her writing style) of the term stir-fry (1945). The Tigers & Strawberries blog has a nice memoir of the book.
