What's your Chinese food obsession?
A shared obsession with Sichuan food helped us bond as American mother and adopted-teen Chinese daughter and also keeps Fongchong connected to her homeland. Whether your connection to Chinese food is through your immigrant or multicultural family, world travel, or simply the love of a Chinese restaurant down the street, our mission is to help you make the best Chinese of your life!
After three years of not being able to travel freely between our countries, we'd like to add that we stand in solidarity with the Chinese people and hope that US-China relations will always be personal and not solely political. Our partners, friends and family in China make this imperative. Our shared love of Chinese food helps make it possible. Thank you for joining us in keeping these relationships alive and the connection strong.
