A Sweet-Sour Memoir of Eating in China
« Not just a smart memoir about cross-cultural eating but one of the most engaging books of any kind I’ve read in years. » —Celia Barbour, O, The Oprah Magazine
After fifteen years spent exploring China and its food, Fuchsia Dunlop finds herself in an English kitchen, deciding whether to eat a caterpillar she has accidentally cooked in some home-grown vegetables. How can something she has eaten readily in China seem grotesque in England? The question lingers over this “autobiographical food-and-travel classic” (Publishers Weekly).
