About this product
- DescriptionIt is hard to believe there was a time when you could t go out for Chinese food in Minnesota, but there was until brothers and entrepreneurs Woo Yee Sing and Woo Du Sing opened their Canton restaurant (later called John's place) in Minneapolis in 1883. Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indian, and Cambodian immigrants have left an indelible and flavourful mark on our collective culinary history. Many cooks sought t only to make a living but also to preserve the memory of their homeland through the dishes set before family and patrons alike, to the great benefit of diners from the metro area to Duluth to the Red River valley. The book includes interviews with pioneering chefs, features on beloved restaurants, stories of farmers and food businesses, and, of course, more than 150 treasured recipes that have urished and inspired Minnesotans. Try Dar Cheen chicken from Wing Ying Huie's Chinese Lantern in Duluth, or Supenn Harrison's egg rolls made famous at her state fair booth beginning in 1976, or Reiko Weston's sukiyaki from the original Fuji Ya in Minneapolis. Let Asian food experts Phyllis Louise Harris and Raghavan Iyer take you on a tour through this comprehensive history, lavishly illustrated with historical and contemporary photography, from the Philippines to south Korea to Nepal, from the 1870s through today. Includes 160 recipes.
