On today's episode of Eating Matters, host Jenna Liut speaks with Valerie Imbruce about her new book, From Farm To Canal Street, which tells the story of one of New York City's oldest and most vibrant ethnic enclaves - Chinatown.  The book explains how Chinatown's food network operates, diverging from the global trend to consolidate food production and distribution.  Touted as "essential reading for anyone interested in who produces food for urban areas and how it gets into cities" by Marion Nestle, this book is not to be missed.
