My wife, who translates cookbooks, got a doozy in the mail today. With names changed to protect the guilty, the book, written by an older woman who is a famous local chef, was entitled Mrs. Chen Teaches Fried Rice (Chen taitai jiao ni chao fan). For those of you who aren’t up on the local slang, “fried rice’ is slang for makin’ the beast with two backs. For some reason, I feel urgently compelled to translate this title exactly, you know, like “Mrs Chen Teaches Home Cookin’”…..got any suggestions for a comparable idiom?
