Reseña del editor: Chinese cuisine has had a deep impact on culinary traditions in Southeast Asia, where the lack of certain ingredients and access to new ingredients along with the culinary knowledge of local people led Chinese migrants to modify traditional dishes and to invent new foods. This process brought the cuisine of southern China, considered by some writers to be ""the finest in the world,"" into contact with a wide range of local and global cuisine's and ingredients. When Chinese from Southeast Asia moved on to other parts of the world, they brought these variants of Chinese food with them, completing a cycle of culinary reproduction, localisation and invention, and globalisation. The process does not end there, for the new context offers yet another set of ingredients and culinary traditions, and the ""embedding and fusing of foods"" continues, creating additional hybrid forms. Written by scholars whose deep familiarity with Chinese cuisine is both personal and academic, Chinese Food and Foodways in Southeast Asia and Beyond is a book that anyone who has been fortunate enough to encounter Southeast Asian food will savour, and it provides a window on this world for those who have yet to discover it.

Descripción NUS Press, Singapore, 2011. Paperback. Condición: New. 11-5-15 Ilustrador. 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. Weight: 0.5kg. Post free within Malaysia. Nº de ref. del artículo: AS99
