Betty Liu Books & Biography


Betty Liu is a Chinese-American home cook who resides in Boston with her husband, Alexander Xu, and their dog, Annie. Her whole family is from Shanghai, and her husband’s family is from Suzhou and Wuxi, so she grew up eating homecooked food from the region, both in the US and in China. She started writing about Chinese food in 2015 on her award-winning blog and found joy in talking about the food that reminded her of home. Since then, her writing, photography, and recipes have been featured on sites such as BonAppétit and Saveur, and she has taught food photography workshops around the world. She is a doctor training to be a surgeon, but in her spare time she continues to cook.
