Learn about the Spicebox Kitchen, Linda Shiue, food enthusiast, doctor and vegetable-forward teacher’s first cookbook.
After she took her first French cooking class at age seven, it took almost 40 more years before Shiue finally went to culinary school at the San Francisco Cooking School. In between, she studied anthropology and medicine at Brown, with fieldwork in rural Sichuan, China and in uber-urban Singapore, continued her medical training at the University of California, San Francisco and learned about plant-based nutrition at Cornell University. An enthusiastic eater, she inspires strangers to copy her order and restaurant chefs to send her a little something special. Shiue is a practicing physician in San Francisco, where she also founded a popular vegetable-forward teaching kitchen to inspire people to cook for health.
