“DAL PURI DIASPORA sizzles…”
- Norman Wilner, NOW Magazine
“Sound, smell and taste can act as powerful memory triggers giving food the power to transport the eater back through time, perhaps even home.”
- Michele Henry, Toronto Star
"Fung interviews cooks, shop owners, authors, scholars, and historians, assembling a timeline beginning in the mid-19th up through the early-20th centuries when indentured workers brought roti from India to the Caribbean colonies, while also touching on the history of sugar cane production and slavery in the Caribbean. Interwoven are present-day human interest stories, as well as culinary details of preparing roti. Animations and archival photographs add visual interest in between interviews, and shots of flatbread being rolled out, fried, and folded. An unusually meticulous tribute to the complex history of a single dish, this is recommended."
