  • The Chopsticks-Fork Principle: A Memoir and Manual by Cathy Bao Bean
    the Chinese and American Physically we had the makings for such an experiment Our newly born son was half Asian half Caucasian Intellectually I formulated his prospects from the wealth of his dual heritage translating his ancestors stories into a future neither side could have imagined yet both had anticipated to some degree Practically I worried just how much difference it would make that he wasn t an ear of corn The book is also a manual that explains how anyone who steps outside the home can benefit by greater awareness of the diversity within and around us The Politically Correct may have thrown out the melting pot and replaced its brew with tossed salad and dressing or smorgasbord but in their recommendations for society s diet the menus never explain how we individual ingredients are to be grown and prepared In Cathy Bao Bean s book she starts with The Facts including I was born Bao Kwei yee China in the Year of the Water Horse during the 77th or 78th Cycle depending on which book you consult Four years later my parents older sister Bette and I arrived in Brooklyn My younger sister SanSan stayed in China One day later Bette and I were enrolled in Public School 8 I spoke no English Bette could say Lucky Strike and Shut up The Principal let her skip 2 grades and made me do kindergarten twice In 1949 we moved to Elmwood Park NJ I started to think in English and forget in Chinese The author then proceeds to tell The Stories of being a student in Teaneck graduating from Tufts University and Claremont Graduate School only to do the one thing that no parent of any culture ever recommends to their daughter marry an artist After their son is born Bao Bean begins to understand why they may have had a point and why she would never be bored She also figures out How to say I love you in English and in Chinese Whether identity crises and toilet training are more stressful with or without a subconscious If her Menopausal Theory of Cooking is gender specific If the Tooth Fairy can survive The Melting Pot Cathy Bao Bean has been a daughter business manager aerobics instructor mother friend writer sister educational consultant wife and activist for the NJ Council for the Humanities She was a Philosophy professor cook student carpool driver volunteer for executive boards and is an active member of the Society for Values in Higher Education Her book ends with the adding of another auspicious title mother in law None of it has been painless but all of it has been fun except the cooking Since 1986 We Press has promoted a range of cultural and multicultural creative writings Bao Bean s book is no exception Rooted in the telling of one family s life one woman s life the tale is a story for all families The Chopsticks Fork Principle is a story about how

    upright a hand on either side of an imaginary plate holding a nonexistent fork and knife What re you doing I m waiting For what For breakfast It must have been the shock because I actually got up and made the American Breakfast my father was so fond of bacon eggs toast juice and coffee At lunch he appeared out of nowhere and sat again waiting Same at dinner Day in day out it was the same He could be creating the most important piece of artwork to hit the scene since Picasso yet like clockwork he d show up at that kitchen table and wait Worse he kept muttering things like Meat and Potatoes I didn t know they were addictive but I guess when your mother has fed you that sort of thing on a regular basis it can be Anyway I started to bastardize the Chinese dishes with extra slivers of beef As to potatoes No way Eat rice This went on for a while Then one day as he sat and waited he announced I decided to be a vegetarian They say that a quick blow to the head can be the cause as well as the cure for amnesia It worked for me Remembering Mr Gunnar and those ovaries I informed Bennett of my new Philosophy of Cooking I was born with just so many So many eggs so many dinners so many trips so many ditches When they re gone they re gone and there s no use wishing for more Ovaries not women run out Cultures who have respected the crone the post menopausal know this The dynamics is natural mathematical not personal and certainly not moral If everyone knows that they re going to run out and that probably the later ones aren t nearly as energetic or enthusiastic as the earlier then everyone can look at this one as possibly the last one So Appreciate the appearance of each but Be Prepared for their total disappearance Eggs dinners trips ditches when they re gone they re gone That s how it goes and there s no one to blame During the rest of my hospital stay in the maternity ward I started to sort through the kinds of experiences William would have and what we would or wouldn t make of them Remembering Mr Gunnar my high school biology teacher I recalled his lecture on Hybrid Vigor The idea was that when two different strains of corn were crossed the result was greater than was normal for either parent type The idea was powerful and not just botanically And William would be the proof We wouldn t just throw him into The Great Melting Pot vaguely hoping he d emerge able to do more than grunt in two languages or co exist in the vicinity of his grandparents without grossing them out If he was to converse while dining not just eating and be interesting to people who didn t have
