Review Quotes:
"Street cuisine is 'quickly changing yet deeply rooted in tradition, ' the authors write, and this is made evident across 10 chapters that combine breezy bits of travel writing and food history with a vast variety of xiao chi, or 'small eats.' . . . Augmented with 100 on-location photos, this lively cookbook brings a distant land into deliciously sharp focus." -- Publishers Weekly


"Most recipe collections aren't entertaining. They tell a story--about the chef, the cuisine, a restaurant or two--then spill the not-so-proverbial beans. Southworth and Matza . . . take readers on a journey into China. We peer inside little towns (like those in rural Yunnan Province) and big--and bigger--cities (Chengdu, Xi'an, and Beijing) and meander through alleyways and little-known streets to find the best bites in China." -- Booklist


" Chinese Street Food is brimming with history, food lore, and recipes that take you on a culinary journey outside of the restaurant and into the streets of regional China. Authentic flavors and techniques explode onto the page in a way that first make you salivate, then motivate to roll up your sleeves and get cooking." --Chef Lee Anne Wong 
"This book is an inspiring culinary atlas of China, an enticing guide to eat your way through China, street by street." --Martin Yan, Yan Can Cook


"From noodles to steamed buns, traditional dishes and sweets, Chinese Street Food is a true celebration of Chinese cuisine. Howie and Greg's experiences and travels take you on a tour of Chinese street food stalls and provide a true authenticity these dishes deserve. Peace and Good Eating." --Chef Ming Tsai
