Lagniappe 6: Chinese Cooks and Philosophy

A little something from The Paragraph Farmer who makes sure we don't think that Chinese chefs only know how to cook ... some ancient Chinese poetry and some Steinbeck in a fascinating combination.

According to Webster
la·gniappe \ˈlan-ˌyap, lan-ˈ\
Etymology: American French, from American Spanish la ñapa the lagniappe, from la + ñapa, yapa, from Quechua yapa something added
Date: 1844

broadly : something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure
