Hi,

I'm currently researching a paper for school on food markets and street vendors in Tokyo, Beijing, and Seoul, and am having a hard time finding anything beyond books that talk very generally about food in these various countries and ones that are about the history of global food culture in general. The best thing so far has been the book Tsukiji by Theodore Bestor.

Was wondering if any of you folks have any ideas... Books, websites, even names of specific streets/places would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Kate

Kate, you may find it worthwhile visiting blogs which are more 'Asia-centric'.

Clotilde has a list of other bloggers in the main page of C&Z, the blog that is, not the forums.

I spent time in Beijing earlier this year and would be happy to tell you about the markets we visited and the food we ate. And I have the good old Lonely Planet Beijing guide that we used extensively when we were there. Email me if you want more info.

And good luck with your paper.

If you're willing to expand your paper to cover South East Asian areas, try contacting Chubby Hubby. He's at http://www.chubbyhubby.net He's based in Singapore.
