Beyond the Great Wall

Recipes and Travels in the Other China

Overview

From the publisher

Beyond the Great Wall is a bold and eye-opening new book of magnificent photos, unforgettable stories, and exotic home cooking from the most ethnically diverse, geographically varied, and intriguing regions of China.

In the West, when we think about food in China, what usually comes to mind are the signature dishes of Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. But beyond the urbanized eastern third of China lie the high open spaces and sacred places of Tibet, the Silk Road oases of Xinjiang, the steppes of Inner Mongolia, and the steeply terraced hills of Yunnan and Guizhou.

The peoples who live in these regions are culturally distinct, with their own histories and their own unique culinary traditions. In Beyond the Great Wall, the inimitable duo of Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid — who first met as young travelers in Tibet — brings home the enticing flavors of this other China.

For over 25 years, both separately and together, Duguid and Alford have journeyed all over the outlying regions of China, sampling local home cooking and street food, making friends, and taking lustrous photographs. Beyond the Great Wall is a rich mosaic of recipes, photos, and stories.
