Liuzhou is actually the name of the Chinese city I call home. Since 1988, it has been in a very active "sister city" relationship with Cincinnati.
For whatever reason, the local government department here in China which looks after such matters has decided to produce a booklet on Chinese home cooking to be issued in English and aimed at Cincinnati residents. They have dragged me on board, kicking and screaming, to be a general consultant and write a few recipes. Not a great probem.
However, I do have one major concern. There is no point including recipes for which the ingredients are simply unavailable. Obviously.
I don't know Cincinnati at all or if there are any members here who are in that city. I just want to maybe ask the occasional question starting with any information on general availability. Are there any decent Asian markets / supermarkets? I have Googled, but a lot of the information is rather old. Also, one list of the top Asian markets included a Mexican market! Someone got lost or failed geography!
If you are in or near Cincinnati or know the city well, I'd be grateful for any assistance. Thanks
