Food was a life raft that connected our families to where we came from, “ writes Judy Leung in the new cookbook, “The Woks of Life.” Her daughters, Sarah and Kaitlin grew up loving their parents’ Chinese cooking but when they moved out of the house, they realized that they had no idea how to cook their family favorites. There were no written recipes or helpful YouTube videos. So the women, along with their parents Judy and Bill, started a blog, “The Woks of Life,” which is now a cookbook, to document their family’s patrimony of recipes. We’ll talk to the Leung sisters, as part of our All You Can Eat series with KQED food editor Luke Tsai, and hear from you: What’s a family recipe you wish you had in writing?
