    New home is about only 10 minutes walk from old home, but moving is still traumatic.

    I'm in the middle of packing to move home. Nightmare. So any cooking for the next week or so may be minimal.This morning breakfast was this. No description required.

    Fruit

    Pomelo pith is made into a marmalade-resembling product here. Despite its appearance, it is in fact, used for making pomelo tea.

    Agreed. Round here the peel is also processed and braised with pork.

    Fruit

    Pomelo (with avocado for scale). A PITA to peel, but worth it in the end.

    Dinner 2021

    Tagliatette with a spicy, slow cooked pork ragu. Alas, the basil is over for this year. Served with a nice Australian Shiraz.
  16. My flippant comment was more in jest than anything else, but yes, you do deserve a more sensible answer. It seems to me that the Cantonese recipes are authentic, but not so much the others. The Sichuan dishes are all over the place and very American-Chinese slanted The video recipe for laziji is a travesty. Compare it to Fuchsia Dunlop's much more authentic version, for example. Overall, the channel is better than most, but I really can't recommend any YouTube videos as being a good way to learn. Books such as those by Ms. Dunlop are much better and there is at least so
  17. They were both around 10-12 yuan ($1.50 - $2 USD.) Chinese food labelling normally gives the production date rather than a 'best before' or 'eat this and you'll die' date. Much more sensible.
