Summary
Höllmann tracks the growth of food culture in China from its earliest burial rituals to today's Western fast food restaurants. He details the food practices of major Chinese religions and the significance of eating and drinking in rites of passage and popular culture. From the invention of noodles to the causes of moder-day food contamination, he uncovers fascinating aspects of daily Chinese life
