Lin-hua: Mom, can I put my pet fish into the river?

Mom: No! When you bought it, you told me you’d take care of it, remember?

Lin-hua: But now I want it to live free.

Mom: I think you’re just tired of keeping it. Also, if your pet fish comes from another country, it may bring some problems for the living things in our country after you put it into our river.

Lin-hua: But I read a newspaper report which said that in New Zealand, animals and plants from other countries aren’t always trouble-makers. With these new friends, New Zealand has become a country with many different kinds of animals and plants.

Here is the preface of Nick Foster’s new book Married to Food.

Preface

My mother was lousy at cooking. To her, cooking was more like an exciting experiment. You put some of this and some of that in a pot, and you wait and see what will happen.No experiments, no experiences.is what she would say when her experiment did not turn out good, and I heard that a lot.

My father was a good cook, and he loved to cook, too. He often said that he got my mother to marry him with a table of delicious food, not with a beautiful ring.A family needs only one good cook,” he said.

Now I am a cook myself. And I have my own restaurant. I learned how to cook from my father, of course. From him, I learned the art of cooking. But I did learn one thing from my mother. It’s her famous saying: “No experiments, no experiences.

Dear Wendy,

You ask me to send you a picture of my family. Here it is.

The picture was taken in our garden by my cousin. It took me some time to get everyone together. My younger sister, Gigi, was so excited about taking pictures. She made my mom stand between my two brothers, and made my dad walk to the back and then to the front. Finally, she had him sit down under the tree. She even made our dog, Rover, move three times, but Rover did not like the idea of taking picture, so he ran into his doghouse. I am the one behind the doghouse. As for Gigi, can you see where she is?
