Just was watching the Staple Foods episode.....all those rice buns and noodles. I want to try making simple noodle wrappers....I think Asian Dumplings might have a recipe. We tried to make them in Vietnam....where they steam them on a piece of fine cloth (voile?) over a pot of water. Harder than it looks.

Thanks for letting us know about this series...it is SO good.

Reminds me of why I love Chinese food so much. The mushroom hunting scene reminds me of something straight from Lord of the Rings

China Central Television have announced that the second 7-part series of A Bite of China will be broadcast nationally during the upcoming Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) which begins on January 31st 2014.

 

Titles of the episodes are Seasons, Steps, Heart, Family Life, Secrets,  Meetings, and Three meals. 

 

No doubt, they will slide out of China thereafter, as did the first series, then be officially released..

Well, on Friday night (18th April),  China Central Television finally got round to showing the first episode of Series II

 

(It didn't happen as promised in the post immediately above - don't know why.)

 

They also seem to have changed the running order. Episode one is "Steps".

 

But what is important is that, so far, the quality is just as Series 1. Stunning.

 

So far, it's only in Chinese but no doubt a English narrated version will turn up one day. It took about two years for Series 1.
