Asian Food Information: Print Sources
Summer Volume: 2000 Issue: 7(2) page(s): 11 and 30
In this issue of Flavor & Fortune, we continue to look at sources of information about Asian cookery and cuisine focusing mainly on print and sources other than electronic. They are in the following categories: Magazines and Journals, Books, Libraries, Bookstores, Commercial (Trade Groups and Importers), and Governmental. While some are not specifically Chinese, their Asian focus provides background of interest and use to the student of Chinese gastronomy. This limited list is not conclusive. When you find others, do share then with me and other Flavor and Fortune readers.
