  1. I've mentioned 沅陵 (yuán líng) before. It is a little known town in West Hunan, near where I lived 25 years ago., and is populated largely by members of the Miao and Tujia ethnic minority. I have a few friends living there. This morning I unexpecedly received this: On the left are the local sausages and on the right is 晒兰 (shài lán), the wonderful ham only made and sold locally.

    Scotch eggs are not Scottish. They are English. The word 'scotch' in the name is not a reference to Scotland but another word, meaning to chop or cut and refers to the coating of the egg which is finely minced (chopped).

    The general style of the phở looks to be Southern style, but can't really see the broth.

    Dinner 2022

    This is just the starter from dinner. The main course was something I've posted here a zillion times, so I'll spare you this time - it was good though. The starter is hot-smoked sturgeon with Thai salted limes. Those bables are full of seeds - seedy limes. But tasty and worked well with the fish.
  11. Here is one extracted from the jar. I'll be using it later today. It'll turn up here somewhere.
  12. What is 'go' here?
