This is an auction for LION'S HEAD, FOUR HAPPINESS: A LITTLE SISTER'S STORY OF GROWING UP IN CHINA by Xiaomei Martell.

Amazon.com review:

"LION'S HEAD, FOUR HAPPINESS is the captivating story of Xiaomei Martell, who was born in one of China's most remote regions just two years before Mao launched the Cultural Revolution. The youngest of four daughters - her name means 'Little Sister' - her family had no money or connections, yet they raised her with a thirst for knowledge and a love of food, ranging from the Lion's Head meatballs her Uncle Deng cooked to the 'phoenix feet' that apparently cured wrinkles, by way of two-hundred-year-old eggs. Xiaomei's entertaining and inspiring story takes us to a world where children play with painted pig toes, dumplings give you perfect ears and rather than saying hello, you ask 'chilema' or 'Have you eaten?' This is a unique and engaging account of a culture and cuisine that is a world away from the China we know today."
