bookshelves: academic, china-chinese-culture, essays, food, ethn-ology-ography
Read from July 10 to 25, 2013

This series of essays covers a variety of topics in how Chinese food and food culture has interacted with other countries, particularly those in the Asia-Pacific area. Most are ethnographies - participant observation of restaurants is frequent, and a bit boring - and only a few topics are groundbreakingly interesting, such as the chapter on the integration of Chinese food into the Philippines, and the one on Hong Kong immigrant food culture in Australia. Mostly, this collection really needed an English-language editor! The errors are a bit glaring, and detract from some neat observations.
