Prized recipes and tales of home, work, and family-from the immigrant vendor-chefs of NYC''s first and favorite night market

Welcome to the Queens Night Market, where thousands of visitors have come to feast on amazing international food-from Filipino dinuguan to Haitian diri ak djon djon. The World Eats Here brings these incredible recipes from over 40 countries to your home kitchen-straight from the first- and second-generation immigrant cooks who know them best.
