Join True Grace book club for a lively discussion of this month’s book!
Travelogue meets foodie memoir in this envy-inspiring book by chowhound communications professor A. V. Crofts. From studying in China to teaching in Italy to conducting humanitarian communications trainings in war-torn Sudan, the author traces a lifetime of meals eaten and things learned with warm and thoughtful prose. Join her at the only coffee shop in Kunming, a home-cooked feast at a civil rights pilgrimage in Alabama, a surprise Thanksgiving in Germany, and her annual Lunar New Year dumpling party in Seattle. Crossing states and continents, Meet Me at the Bamboo Table is a beautiful meditation on how food nourishes a community.
