Reviews

'Finally, someone has written a book about the hypocrisy (or maybe just ambiguity ) of gastro-tourism and how it has been marketed. But who knew this story could be presented as funny and ironic? From the colonial Dutch East Indies rijsttafel to Anthony Bourdain, Bender traces the nearly two-hundred-year history of the tug-of-war between tourists' professed desire for authenticity and their need for comfort and familiarity.' - Paul Freedman, Chester D. Tripp Professor of History, Yale University, and author of American Cuisine
