In addition to chapters on appetizers, vegetables, meat, and seafood, she explores the lasting culinary influences of military villages, train bento boxes, and Taiwanese tea. Recipes for fried pork chop noodle soup, shredded chicken over rice, and Hakka-style sweet green tea convey cultural insight as well as instruction Photos of everyday people, the diverse landscape, and alluring dishes complete this engaging and delightful collection." "Publisher's Weekly," starred review Erway s cookbook is among the very first to celebrate Taiwanese food and culture in English. It is written with deep affection, and the photographs capture the beauty of Taiwan and its tantalizing cooking. Erway s charming stories make this book as much a travelogue as an enticing introduction to this little-known cuisine. Grace Young, author of "Stir-Frying to the Sky s Edge" A fresh voice, a fascinating new culture (at least for most of us), and bulletproof recipes. Cathy Erway writes as well as she cooks, which is great. Peter Kaminsky, author of "Culinary Intelligence" Taiwanese is one of the great neglected regional cuisines of China. Why? Because Taiwanese restaurateurs are more likely to open Cantonese, Shanghai, or Sichuan restaurants, and keep their own excellent dishes like stinky tofu, oyster omelets, beef noodle soup, and meatball mochi to themselves. In Cathy Erway s new cookbook "The Food of Taiwan," she explicates all these recipes and more, filling a great gap in our knowledge of Chinese cooking, inviting you to mount your own dinner party.
