    1. The interest in Asian foods has been growing steadily for years It seems to be on a surge of growth right now Is it because of the health benefits of their diets Or perhaps it is just a fad The world is getting smaller and we are hungrier for new tastes and food adventures Who are these people behind the food This book takes a look at the history behind the food The food trucks, doughnut shops, World War 2 Japanese internment camps, and many There are studies on how these points in history chan [...]


    2.

    3. I was so very ready to LOVE this book I have to say that, unfortunately, I was quite disappointed from Page 1 I understood that it was going to be a collection of academic articles That s OK I ve been to grad school I get academia.Overall, however, I found the scholarship quite lazy I felt there was a lot of everything is white peoples fault disclosure, I am white so maybe I am being defensive in pretty much every article where the history of the various foodways was explored What I found most f [...]


    4. Many dishes that are popular in Asian restaurants in the USA and other countries might not be immediately recognised as authentic in their originating countries But how did they get there Through immigration or were they borrowed from distant lands and interpreted by the host country s own nationals This book looks at the crossover between Asian American Asian Food , ethnic authenticity and integration into the mainstream through an academic lens Twenty scholars from a variety of different disci [...]

    6. The twenty scholars represented here have inaugurated a new facet of food studies the refusal to yield to a superficial multiculturalism that naively celebrates difference and reconciliation through the pleasures of food and eating Eating Asian America is a book that collects 20 articles and short essays about the food and lives of people who are Asian American These stories range from talking about a Cambodian Doughnut Shop, Japanese immigrants during WW2, Filipinos, various people from Hawaii, [...]


    7. I should have been alerted by the huge book description and word scholars, so it s my own fault that I found myself not liking this as much as I thought I would It does what it set out to do, in a very academic, roundabout sort of manner.I had anticipated a perhaps snarky narrative work that got into the discussion about our tremendous enthusiasm for ethnic foods while at the same time dismissing ignoring the history, experience culture behind them This book does point out what we don t know lot [...]


    8. An academic work focusing on the influence of Asian American cuisine I admit, the book couldn t keep my attention for long periods of time, but there are some points of interest regarding Asian immigration as traced through the evolution of food.I enjoyed the essay on School Lunch in Hawaii, mostly because recipes are included I wish recipes were scattered throughout the text it would have helped me be involved with the text The history featured throughout the book is fascinating and well rese [...]


    9. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection, which examined a broad range of topics relating to food, culture, and immigration As an Asian American, I have long thought that food plays a vital role in our culture, both from how outsiders perceive of us as well as how we define ourselves It is an academic work, though, so I might not necessarily recommend it for the casual reader, but I loved it nonetheless Advanced copy provided by NetGalley


    10. 2.5 stars rounded up to 3This was mostly a collection of scholarly papers about food in the Asian American culture Because many writers contributed to this, it s hard to judge as a whole Most memorable in this was the piece about Cambodian immigrants and their donut empire Other papers were a little dry and hard to keep an interest in.
