"Forget the dude chefs and rockstar butchers. Chin's clear, honest
prose forges the link between locavores and immigrant foodways
without pretense or pose, sharing heartache and joy--and all the
muddied life that roils in between. Like sitting with a good friend
at the kitchen table, EATING WILDLY" "is a pleasure that lasts long
after you're done."
--Tracie McMillan, bestselling author of The American Way of Eating
