In June 2003 Xinran began writing about China for her weekly column in the Guardian. She has covered a vast range of topics from food to sex education, and from the experiences of British mothers who have adopted Chinese daughters, to whether Chinese people do Christmas shopping.
Each of her columns inspired letters and questions and more opportunities for Xinran to shed light on the culture of her native land.
What the Chinese Don't Eat collects these pieces together for the first time to give one unique Chinese woman's perspective on the connections and differences between the lives of British and Chinese people today.
