"Spirit of place meets spirits and plaice, and squid and cold melon soup and a great deal more if you are looking for a book that captures the tastes and smells of the East, this is it. A truly lovely book." Jonathan Chamberlain, author of "King Hui: The Man Who Owned All the Opium in Hong Kong" "Schneiter delightfully puts food exactly where it should be: on the table, to be shared, as a way of meeting and connecting with people. But his chatty recipes also show how there can be joy in the cooking, not only in the eating. -- Annabel Jackson, author of "Taste of Macau"
