Hello, Elizabeth! Thank you very much for the opportunity to (virtually) sit down with you and to talk a little bit about your upcoming Chinese-inspired fantasy, Spin the Dawn. It’s such a huge honor to have you on my blog!
I’d like to kick this interview off with a couple of silly questions. Consider it a warm-up of some sort.
A few months ago, Eugene Lee Yang from the Try Guys (a group of four male YouTubers) tweeted that one way to start a fight is by asking Asians which Asian culture has the best soup. Inspired by that tweet, here’s my question: in your opinion, what is the best Asian soup?
Ahh I could literally think about this all day. Like, soup with noodles, dessert soups, herbal soups, broths…? I’m going to cheat by giving a couple answers. My favorite dessert soup, hands down, is red bean soup (Chinese). My favorite noodle soups would be beef pho (Vietnamese) and curry laksa (Malaysian). And my favorite soup of all time is a fish broth with vegetables my Cantonese grandma makes. It has no name but it’s delectable.
