the specially selected few, those acquaintances whom the Chens wish to honour.
These are the rich and powerful, the elite whose names regularly appear on the
front ...

Mr. Chen was right. The soup was delicious. Soon our table was filled with
platters of shark's fin, roasted piglet, fried jelly fish and, of course, the famous
Dragon and Tiger Locked in Battle. It was one of the most wonderful meals of my
life, though I thought the leopard tasted like chicken. As a kindness to Walt, Mr.
Chen ordered plain white rice and some sweet and sour dish. Walt attacked this
food with a vengeance once he exchanged his chopsticks for a fork. In between
emptying and ...

Mr. Chen said that they were fried pig skin. I asked him what they were for and he
turned to the chef, who was wearing a Mao cap, and asked. Apparently we will
have it tonight for dinner, cut into squares and served in sweet-and-sour sauce.
Then he pointed to some other sheets hanging nearby. “See those?” he asked. “
That is unfried pig skin. That will be used for poorer customers; the chef will cut it
into thin, thin strips and weave it into imitation bird's nest.” Only in China do pigs
turn ...

I was given the seat of honor at the round table, the far stool directly facing the
curtained doorway. As host, Mr. Chen took the stool across from me that placed
his back to the door — the least of seats, traditionally, because of its vulnerability

sweet-and-sour sauce, soup in a hollowed melon. The 74 DAUGHTER OF THE
KHANS.
