Reviews

"Padoongpatt provides a much-needed narrative on Thai Americans in Los Angeles by focusing on Thai food and its connection to globalism, policy, immigration, race, notions of empire, and making place in Los Angeles."
-- "Journal of Asian American Studies"
"I highly recommend this book; it is a feast of great flavours."-- "Pacific Affairs"
"An important contribution that not only illuminates the formation of the Thai American community but also offers a novel approach that takes foodways as a critical entry point to explore the entanglements of American empire, Thai migration and racialization."-- "Gastronomica"
