Fuchsia Dunlop is an award-winning food writer and cook specialising in Chinese cuisine. She trained as a chef at the Sichuan Higher Institute of Cuisine in the 1990s and has been researching Chinese culinary culture ever since. Fuchsia is the author of seven books including, most recently, Invitation to a Banquet: The Story of Chinese Food. Several of her books have been published in Chinese translation. She is a regular contributor to FT Weekend and other publications and to radio and TV shows including Ugly Delicious and Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. Fuchsia grew up in Oxford and was educated at Cambridge University, Sichuan University, and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London.


Event Description:

In case you missed the first talk or loved it so much you want to hear it again with a different moderator, here's one more talk with Fuchsia Dunlop on her Invitation to a Banquet . The epic tale of the world’s most sophisticated gastronomic culture, told through a banquet of thirty Chinese dishes. Because why not? Chinese food was the earliest truly global cuisine afterall. When the first Chinese labourers began to sojourn and settle abroad, restaurants appeared in their wake. Yet Chinese food has the curious distinction of being both one of the world’s best-loved culinary traditions and one of the least understood. Thanks to Karen Koh for moderating the close of the 2024 HK Litfest.
