one of the few perks of working in a library

 

yesterday i accompanied the chinese language librarian to the chinese bookstore in the city to help select some Chinese learning materials [being the resident girly swot language expert].  but I got sidetracked with the bilingual cooking books and dvds.  i actually don’t cook, i just look at the pictures.  …but i might be tempted to once i get my hands on these books.

we selected this dvd on street food in beijing (fatduck i thought of you when we chose it, you can borrow it), and also a couple of bilingual cooking books – one on cold chinese dishes and another purely on dumplings and dim sum stuff.   i’m first in line to recieve these books and dvds when they are ready to go on the shelf so who knows, i may be holding a small dim sum party at one point.

    While I was in Beijing, I nearly had that kind of street food (just like the picture you posted) every night. Those skewers (串chuan) can be roasted or boiled in hot spicy soup. They are very delicious.
    What I like most is lamb skewer(羊肉串). 味道太好了。
