Meet Me at the Bamboo Table

Meet Me at the Bamboo Table


by A.V. Crofts


"Meet Me at the Bamboo Table is a thought-provoking book that challenges you to think about what's on your dinner table in a whole new light." — Simon Majumdar, author of Fed, White, and Blue: Finding America with My Fork, and Judge on Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen


In our ever-more-globalized world, how better to connect than with food, and who better to connect us than a chowhound communications professor? Crofts concocts a multimedia feast of photos, “sketchnotes,” and vignettes, inviting us to everything from Thanksgiving in Germany to a Lunar New Year dumpling party in Seattle. The result is a beautiful meditation on how food nourishes community.
