Chef Wilson Tang Joins Drew's Cookbook Club!

Recipes & Cooking

As part of Drew's Cookbook Club series, Wilson Tang shares one of his favorite cookbooks!

Welcome to Drew's Cookbook Club!

As a passionate cookbook collector, Drew reads at least three cookbooks a week, cover-to-cover, because inside every good cookbook, she believes, there’s a recipe that will truly change your life. In this series, Drew shares her favorite recipes, tips and stories from cookbooks in her personal collection. Wilson Tang stops by to share his pick for Drew's Cookbook Club and celebrate cookbooks!

Wilson Tang left a career in finance, after escaping the Twin Towers as a 9/11 survivor, and inherited Nom Wah Tea Parlor from his uncle Wally. His uncle moved up from a dishwasher to cook, to waiter, and eventually owner. He is a first-generation American, who against his family’s expectations went with his true calling of being in the restaurant industry. Nom Wah Tea Parlor just celebrated 100 years in business and has just released The Nom Wah Cookbook which Drew has highlighted on the show and LOVES to cook from.
