British Chef and Food-Writer Specializing in Chinese Cuisine

Dunlop has followed her passion for food and writing to become a popular cookbook author and Chinese food phenomenon.

Her award-winning cookbooks include Land of Fish and Rice: Recipes from the Culinary Heart of China (a collection of recipes from the Jiangnan or Lower Yangtze Region in eastern China) and Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking. Shark’s Fin and Sichuan Pepper: A Sweet-Sour Memoir of Eating in China is an account of her adventures in exploring Chinese food culture. In addition to four James Beard awards, she is a regular guest on radio and television, and has appeared on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown (2016). She is fluent in Mandarin Chinese, and she was the first Westerner to train as a chef at the Sichuan Institute of Higher Cuisine.

"My dear friend Henry Winkler was right....Yakima Town Hall's hospitality knows no bounds. You are warm, generous, yet seriously professional women and I can see why all your speaker guests request return invitations. And who knew they could cook colcannon in this part of the world. That was the most fantastic dinner and lovely reception. I'm heading west next year and will try to make a detour to Yakima. I'm sure you can guarantee me a full house." - Ronan Tynon, Ireland's Inspirational & Gifted Tenor
