Senior Self-directed Project
I wrote and designed this book because my family and I have been in the American Chinese restaurant business ever since I was a little girl. Most of my friends do not know what authentic Chinese food is because they've only had what is available to them in the United States. I want to show people how Chinese food came to be what it is and what real Chinese food looks like and tastes like today. In order to do that, I chose three of the major regions of China: Beijing, Sichuan, and Guangdong.
The final presentation of the project included a gallery exhibit, so I also created a recipe pamphlet to go along with the food that I made. The recipe pamphlet contained the recipes to the food at the exhibit.
