Tiny Moons : A Year of Eating in Shanghai by Nina Mingya Powles


Tiny Moons is a collection of essays about food and belonging from The Emma Press. Nina Mingya Powles journeys between Wellington, Kota Kinabalu and Shanghai, tracing the constants in her life: eating and cooking, and the dishes that have come to define her.

Through childhood snacks, family feasts, Shanghai street food and student dinners, she attempts to find a way back towards her Chinese-Malaysian heritage.
