  1. My rice cooker is a no gō area!
  2. China does not have Jasmine rice.
  3. I'm told the Kunming "Panda Express" is no longer there.
  4. Here's one that may stump many people. Each 'leg' is about 4¼ inches / 11cm long. The one with the pointed foot is marginally longer than the other. It is made for a very particular purpose.
  5. Already happened. https://www.yicaiglobal.com/news/largest-us-chinese-restaurant-chain-panda-express-enters-china or maybe not https://www.thatsmags.com/china/post/31822/did-american-chain-panda-express-open-its-first-china-location Certainly there have been attempts to open American-Chinese restaurants in China in the past. I remember the first, an independent, opening in Shanghai several years ago. It lasted about twenty minutes.

    Me too. In similar fashion.
  7. 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).

  11. Over the last few weeks, several UK supermarket chains have announced that they are abandoning such "best before dates" on a wide range of their food stocks in a bid to reduce food waste and hence greenhouse gas emissions.
  12. Lyons Magnus recalls 53 products including alternative milks and protein shakes So much for "healthy" alternatives!

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

    I guess this belongs here. @Kerala One Indian village, more than 100 varieties of mangoes
  15. I haven't been in Cologne since 1967, so no information to share, but I'm looking forward to reading about your experience.

    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.
  17. Here is one extracted from the jar. I'll be using it later today. It'll turn up here somewhere.
  18. What is 'go' here?
  19. I'm stil in shock that I couldn't roast a chicken in the freezer!
  20. Could someone please give me an idea of the size of these Hatch chilis? They look like something I get here, but without scale it's difficult to be sure. Thanks.
  21. They are smooth skinned limes. Uncut. Ingredients are: Water, Lime, Salt, Acetic Acid. They are similar to these Zhuang Preserved Lemons. In fact, I'll probably use them to make a version of the recipe on page 2 of that thread. The Zhuang people are related to the Thai, at least linguistically.
  22. I'm looking forward to playing with these. Thai limes in brine.
