I love receiving snail mail. I know, I know, who doesn't? But when a thoughtful note is accompanied by a lovely, mouth-watering cookbook, now we're talking about something very special.
Momofuku Noodle Bar was one of the first places my sister took us in NYC many years ago, and since then has remained an important stop for family to reconnect over steaming bowls of brussels sprouts with kimchi and bacon. So you can imagine my surprise and gratitude when I opened a package up from my much-missed, east-coast-living sister containing the words and recipes of the one and only David Chang. More importantly was the note attached, reminding me I am one lucky girl to have a sister who knows me so thoroughly, and whose own love for food rivals my own.
So thanks, Sister. You're the best. I am now poaching eggs like a true professional and thinking of you as a slurp my ramen out on the West coast.
