TASTE Canada Food Writing Award (Regional Cookbook) (2013)

Shortlisted for a TASTE CANADA - Food Writing Award in the Regional/Cultural Cookbooks category.

In February 2010, Conde Nast Traveler magazine declared Metro Vancouver home to the best Chinese food in the world. While foodies flock to the city for dumplings and dim sum, they leave having discovered a wealth of world-class Asian dishes, from sushi to sambar, banh mi to bubble tea.

Almost one in five of Vancouver's two million residents is ethnically Chinese, and the city supports more than four hundred Chinese restaurants. Other Vancouverites bring with them the cuisines of their onetime homes in Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam or India.

The first book of its kind, East Meets West is a celebration of the city's Asian food and a mouthwatering compilation of distinctive dishes from its most talented -- but often unheralded -- kitchens. Veteran food writer Stephanie Yuen brings together a collection of recipes showcasing both traditional Asian foods made with fresh ingredients from the Pacific Northwest Coast and modern classics inspired by Asian flavours and techniques.

With an introduction to the history of Asian food in Vancouver, and profiles of the city's most exciting eateries -- many of them hidden gems, elusive to the uninitiated -- East Meets West is a delicious glimpse into one of the most complex and fascinating culinary landscapes in the world.
