If I had an infinite amount of time, and infinite amounts of money, I would do exactly what Di Xianghua did: wander across China, sampling regional delicacies in their natural habitat, digging in to the history of each dish, and telling the stories of the dishes and the people who introduced them. It reads like a memoir in food with accompanying pictures to make your mouth water. The cultural context of each dish and regional cuisine is lovingly described, going into much greater detail than the typical (but inaccurate) explanation of China's ""4 Great Cuisines"": Northern, Sichuanese, Hunanese, and Cantonese. A word of warning: don't read this book on an empty stomach!
