China to Chinatown: Chinese Food in the West
J.A.G. Roberts (au)
A fascinating study of the way Westerners’ attitudes to Chinese food in China changed in relation to the nature of political situations & to the role of political commentators, missionaries & aesthetes. How did a cuisine that, to the Western palate, admitted the inadmissible -- sharks’ fins, dog’s flesh, cats’ eye -- spread to the extent that Chinese rest. & takeouts are now found everywhere? Charts the first immigrant communities, Chinatowns & rest. in Britain & N. America & the gradual domestication of Chinese food. Analyzes how cultures assimilate & adapt in order to survive. “A wonderful history that is also a fascinating account of the way we eat today, shedding light on our understanding of society as well as its food habits.” 26 illustrations.
