When will my order arrive?

After fifteen years spent exploring China and its food, Fuchsia Dunlop finds herself in an English kitchen, deciding whether to eat a caterpillar she has accidentally cooked in some home-grown vegetables. How can something she has eaten readily in China seem grotesque in England? The question lingers over this autobiographical food-and-travel classic (Publishers Weekly)."

Review quote

I didn t realize what a self-satisfied, Western-hemisphere food snob I was until I read Shark s Fin and Sichuan Pepper. . . . This is not just a smart memoir about cross-cultural eating but one of the most engaging books of any kind I ve read in years. --Celia Barbour"
