Narrator Brian Nishii's delivery brings a multicultural finesse to author Cheuk Kwan's search for Chinese restaurants around the world. Far-flung locations and flavorful menu items include poisson de sauce tomate in St. George, Mauritius; steamed grouper in Sâo Paulo, Brazil; and deep-fried squid in Colaba, Mumbai. These are just a few of the synergistic creations Kwan discovers. Nishii's Chinese pronunciation and congenial tone bring out the rich fusion of cultures and the fierce bond that the Chinese who have settled outside of China maintain with their heritage and their new homes. Using delectable food creations as entry points, this heartwarming and enlightening exploration of the Chinese diaspora is a sumptuous smorgasbord of culture and history that is sure to satisfy even the biggest appetite.
