    In A Common Table, Cynthia shares more than 80 Asian-inspired, modern recipes that marry food from her Chinese roots, Southern upbringing, and Korean mother-in-law’s table. The book chronicles Cynthia’s story alongside the recipes she and her family eat every day—beginning when she met her husband at law school and ate out of two battered red bowls, through the first years of her legal career in New York, to when she moved to Los Angeles to start a family.

    Filled with beautiful photographs, powerful story-telling, and gorgeous food, A Common Table is a cookbook you want to devour over and over again. You’ll find recipes that celebrate both the commonalities and the diversity of cultures: from Korean-inspired take on Hawaiian poke, peanut butter mochi cake, and gochujang eggs in purgatory.

    Above all, she believes that food can bring us together around the same table, no matter where we are from.
