Description - China to Chinatown by J. A. G. Roberts

Tells the story of one of the most notable examples of the globalization of food: the spread of Chinese recipes, ingredients and cooking styles to the Western world. Beginning with the accounts of Marco Polo and Franciscan friars who travelled to the East, J.A.G. Roberts describes how Westerners' first impressions of Chinese food were decidely mixed, with many regarding Chinese eating habits as repugnant. Chinese food was brought back to the West merely as a curiosity.
