Waiting for the Eggs to Dance, and Other Tales from my Grandmother’s Kitchen, is a novel/ recipe book written by Hong Yu Ran. The novel is based on the author’s grandmother’s life woven into a series of recipes that the author grew up with. Each recipe represents a different chapter in the author’s grandmother’s life from moving to Singapore from Hong Kong in the 1930s, surviving WWII and the Japanese occupation in the 1940s and the subsequent independence from the British Colony in the 1950s. The novel is written through the eyes and the taste buds of the author, remembering his childhood memories and uncovering his family’s history.
