About this book
Subtitled, "A Sweet-Sour Memoir Of Eating In China". Award-winning food writer Dunlop charts how she went to live in China in 1994, and resolved to eat everything she was offered. In the course of her journey, she undergoes an apprenticeship as a Sichuanese chef and attempts to persuade Chinese people that Western food is neither simple nor bland.
Intends to recall the author's relationship with China and its food, from her encounter with the delicious cuisine of Sichuan Province, to brushes with corruption, environmental degradation and greed. From the markets of Sichuan to the bleached landscape of northern Gansu Province, this work presents an account of the Chinese culinary culture.
