Chinese Cooking

21 Aug

Almost completely by accident, the day after we got back from China, we found this series on BBC iPlayerExploring China: A Culinary Adventure, with Ken Hom and Ching-He Huang.

The first episode features, amongst other things, the interesting snacks available at Donghuamen Night Market, as mentioned in an earlier post. It’s also given us a couple of ideas of places to look for when we’re back in Beijing (and that’s definitely ‘when’, not ‘if’).

I’m definitely hoping to improve my Mandarin before we go back; I think it’ll make it much easier to escape from the places that cater to tourists, and experience more of the authentic cuisine.
