Learn to cook Chinese as if you were in the Ang Lee film Eat Drink Man Woman. The food director on that film, Theresa Lin Cheng, will teach a class in “The Joy of Chinese Cooking” this Saturday (November 14) at 2 p.m. at the Rosemead Library.

Cheng, a cookbook author, chef and restaurant consultant, will demonstrate three dishes: Cantonese scrambled eggs with shrimp, mapo's bean curd and stir-fried green vegetables. The recipes are simple. It's the techniques that make the difference.

Cheng also has a radio show, “What's Cooking,” Monday through Friday at 9:50 a.m. on radio station KAZN (AM 1300). The show is in Mandarin, but Saturday's class will be in English.

The Joy of Chinese Cooking: Rosemead Library, 8800 Valley Blvd., Rosemead. (626) 573-5220. Admission is free.
