Noodle Trails is funny, wise and thought-provoking, outspoken, touching, surprising, and mouthwatering. I was constantly hungry while reading it! I learned a lot about South-east Asia and became drawn in to the author's rich adventures. Along the way she passes on fascinating insights into the fairtrade world that put human faces and stories to the products we pick up or click on. This is an impressive debut travel memoir from a refreshing new voice, and I hope that there is going to be a follow-up volume.
