A collection of relevant books that I own

Jook Joint
A photographic record of Jook joints before they get modernised. When I first saw this it was a disturbing feeling. It is a strange contrast on the one hand you get the authentic culture of hard-working folks unpretentiously socialising to the Blues, but at the same time you'd never think to take a respectable high falutin' girl to one of those becasue they seem so shabby, grotty. grimey and raw.

The Blues Highway Cookbook

Nice book but have yet to brave many of the dishes...too much chilli and not enough 'pigfoot a bottle of beer'
