A Tiger in the Kitchen: A Memoir of Food and Family by Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan

This book is about the author's year spent traveling from New York City to her native Singapore to learn how to cook the dishes of her childhood. She reconnects with her family and learns a lot about cooking.

When she's back in New York City, she also works on learning how to bake bread, so she describes her bread adventures as well. These descriptions seemed a bit out-of-place and jolting after reading so much about Singaporean food.

This was a so-so book. Enjoyable, but I'm not putting this down as a must-read.
