Chinese Food and Foodways in Southeast Asia and Beyond

Edited by

Tan Chee-Beng

New. This is an unusual book about Chinese food in that it doesn't have a single recipe. That's because, although the book is an examination as to how Chinese food changes when it gets out of China and why, it's written by a collection of academics, a mixture of nutritionists, anthropologists and others. Despite that it's very readable and even mouth watering. The collection is divided into three parts -

  • I - Overview and Chinese Food in Diaspora,
  • II - Chinese Food and Foodways in Southeast Asia (with essays that focus on Indonesia, the Phllippines, Burma and the "Steamed Flour Rice-Roll") &
  • III - Beyond Southeast Asia (with essays on food in Las Vegas, Australia and Hong Kong.)
  • There are notes on the contributors, an index and 21 colour illustrations. 243 pages.
