In our ever-more-globalized world, how better to connect than with food, and who better to connect us than a chowhound communications professor? A.V. Crofts has spent decades eating (and learning) her way around the world. She's studied in China, taught in Italy, and conducted humanitarian communications trainings in war-torn Sudan. Here, she traces a lifetime of meals across states and continents for the ways that food ties us together. With warm, thoughtful prose, Crofts invites us to the only coffee shop in Kunming; to a home-cooked feast at a civil rights pilgrimage in Alabama; to a surprise Thanksgiving in Germany; and to her annual Lunar New Year dumpling party in Seattle. This full-color visual tour-de-force will delight foodies, armchair travelers, and anyone who's ever learned a little something from a special meal. Photos, "sketchnotes," and other ephemera from Crofts's globetrotting coalesce into a truly beautiful meditation on how food nourishes community. A.V. Croftsworks at the University of Washington as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Communication and a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Global Health. Her work has been published inGastronomica andSaveur and on her popular blog avcrofts.com.… (més)

Received through librarything in exchange for a review. Well written essays with photographic and illustrated artifacts documenting the author’s adventures in travel and eating. Not a deep read - more reminiscent of window shopping, but enjoyable! ( )

Food and travel writing brings taste and place together for good and bad memories. A.V. Crofts was able to bring me along with her on her travel and tasting adventures around the world. It made me want to be much more present with my dining experiences at home and overseas as connection with others is another important component of the fun of it all. ( )

I received this book for free to review. I absolutely loved this book! It's perfect for any foodie. The author gave wonderful stories about her travels throughout the years and the food she tasted/tried. My only critique is it would've been nice to have descriptions with the pictures. Other than that, it was a great fast read. ( )

I received this book as a LibraryThing Early Reviewer.

I enjoyed parts of A.V. Crofts Meet Me at the Bamboo Table, but it was really more about travel and relationships than food. It jumps around a bit in time which can make it hard to follow at points, wondering if one section happened before or after another. There are lovely bits about relationships among humans, and lovely photos (uncaptioned however), which I may have enjoyed more if I had realized up front that was the book's focus. Instead I was disappointed by the lack of focus on the food itself since I expected more of a memoir with recipes. Overall I felt quite "meh" about it as a read. ( )
