Dr. Chin’s recent book, Eating Wildly: Foraging for Life, Love, and the Perfect Meal (Simon & Schuster, 2014), is a food memoir about being raised in Flushing, NY by a single mother and loving Chinese grandparents. Eating Wildly reveals how foraging and the DIY-food movement helped the author to reconcile her past and taught her important lessons in self-reliance.
