Writers & Readers presents author and scholar Beth Yahp in conversation with Walter Mason as she talks about her autobiographical work Eat First, Talk Later, covering her Hakka Chinese heritage and her wider cultural experiences growing up in Malaysia, Paris and Australia.
Guided by the family mantra, Beth explores the way food and places are intrinsically connected in her family’s history, discussing the not always compatible ideas of home and belonging, and the rituals of telling family and national stories, all anchored by the sheer joy of food.
