"Sentimental and quaint...A culinary lesson in patience." --Kirkus Reviews

This story is appealing on several levels, as a multigenerational tale about a family that shares traditions, experiences and meals, as a lesson in patience, and as an introduction to a versatile and sustainable food. --School Library Connection

Young readers will marvel at how patience brings a whole universe together in a simple dish made by a modern Chinese American family.... A fun and original read from cover to cover. --Midwest Book Review
