About this product
- DescriptionBy exploring the other side of what is prescriptively understood as proper Asian gastromy, Robert Ji-Song Ku suggests that Asian cultural expressions occurring in places such as Los Angeles, Holulu, New York City, and even Baton Rouge are less critical to understanding the meaning of Asian food - and, by extension, Asian people - than culinary expressions that took place in Tokyo, Seoul, and Shanghai centuries ago. In critically considering the impure and hybridized with serious and oft en whimsical intent, Dubious Gastromy argues that while the tion of cultural authenticity is troubled, troubling, and troublesome, the apocryphal is t necessarily a bad thing: The dubious can be and is oft en quite delicious.
