Andrew Coe’s new book, Chop Suey: A Cultural History of Chinese Food in the United States, chronicles the relationship Americans have to the cuisine of the Middle Kingdom, from the bastardized versions of Chinese dishes to our struggle to master chopsticks.
The book is out in July and you, lucky Fork in the Road readers, get first dibs! We’ll be giving away three copies of Chop Suey to you just for telling us your favorite Chinese food joint in the city.
Enter to win by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Contest deadline is July 10 at noon. Winners will be chosen at random.
