Cat Nelson

Cat Nelson is a food writer on a lifelong quest to experience all the tastes in the world. Originally from the California coast, she moved from New York to Beijing in 2010 and promptly started eating everything. From foie gras and duck confit to soup dumplings and donkey sandwiches, it’s all fair game. After half a decade in the city, she’s convinced there is no better place to experience everything Chinese food has to offer than the capital of the Middle Kingdom.
