Editorial Reviews

Unlike anything else I've read... funny quirks yet balances the political undertone perfectly. The book involves history, humor, culture and most importantly, food (or rather, taste).

-Barrett Books (@Thea_Books)

... skillfully merges anecdotes, historical research and loving explorations of food This is a super little book that's both fascinating and inspiring. Snippets of information, snapshots of daily life - and a tip on where to find the best pineapple tarts...They should give it to newly-arriving expats as they get off the plane.

... reads like a travelogue, a personal story and a history book... a pleasure to read.-
