INVITATION TO A BANQUET The Story of Chinese Food

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Fuchsia Dunlop

Contemporary Culture • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

UK-born-and-bred author Fuchsia Dunlop adds zest to her ardent narration of her epicurean adventures around China and the history of Chinese food. A year-long academic scholarship in Sichuan, China, led to an invitation to study at the Sichuan Higher Institute of Cuisine. Her acceptance, which stemmed from a love of food, cooking, and a desire to spend more time in the city, became a three-decade gastronomic career. Dunlop's narration imparts wisdom and reverence for Chinese culture and China's diverse cuisine, especially its infinite permutations. Her authentic Mandarin accent and satiny voice add to the lyrical descriptions and intricate history of mouthwatering dishes like steamed reeves shad and places like Dragon Well Village. Grab your chopsticks and get ready for a delectable performance. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
