Narrator Eric Martin's warm, authoritative voice brings steadiness to food writer Andrew Coe's intriguing look at the cultural history of Chinese people in America through their cooking. And what better entry into the story than the iconic Chinese-American dish chop suey, which may have originated in New York City or San Francisco and may have been a last-minute mess or a carefully planned banquet dish. The audiobook is a blend of history and past and present meals--a serving of such connected tidbits as how the Gold Rush helped Chinese peasant food come to define Chinese-American cuisine and why you probably adore egg rolls. Martin handles the mélange gracefully, his timing and articulation creating an easy and tasty listen. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
