Editorial Reviews

Choice

"The style and presentation, as well as the topic, make this a very good addition to the literature on the history of food. Recommended."

The Independent

"Informative and readable."

The Times

"The book is a valuable and timely account of the West’s strange love-hate relationship with Chinese food, and a stimulating read, provoking as it does so many challenging questions about how we perceive and adapt to other cultures."
