Double Happiness

88 recipes, 8 compelling stories, and one man’s dream.

Just in time for the Lunar New Year celebrations, The Double Happiness Cookbook, is a lively celebration of Asian cuisine! It’s a riveting exploration of Trevor Lui’s tireless culinary journey that began in the kitchen of a family restaurant with sweet and sour chicken balls and chow mein and eventually drew inspiration from the streets of LA, New York, Toronto, and Taiwan. Featuring feel-good, Asian-inspired recipes with big-city attitude—think BBQ pork on rice, bulgogi beef tostadas, sweet chili cauliflower wings, and ramen with L.A. Kalbi—this heartening cookbook is an authentic celebration of heritage, community, street culture, and food philosophy. This is the perfect cookbook for your audience looking for feel good recipes accompanied by a compelling and inspiring story. Trevor has even built the perfect Spotify playlist to match the songs listed throughout the book!
