The Food of China
To feed a quarter of the worldís population on only seven percent of the worldís cultivated land and at the same time to have developed a renowned cuisine is perhaps the most exemplary achievement of the Chinese people.

Andersonís comprehensive, entertaining historical and ethnographic account of Chinese food from the Bronze Age to the twentieth century shows how food has been central to Chinese governmental policies, religious rituals, and health practices from earliest times.
