Today’s Ayi lunch
dashoffood is getting a boost of inspiration from my lovely and talented friend @berryshine . I cooked a family classic passed down from my dad to me by osmosis for her lovely project to empower herself to grow her blog and photography passions. We both took turns with food styling and learning from one another. Thank you Tracy for engaging me and inspiring me! xo..vancouver igersvancouver vancouver inmemory chickenmushroom rice homecooking faitavecamour madewithlove pnw familylove ingredients ginger heritage familyrecipe myrecipe cookbook cook miseenplace instafood ilovefood food chicken hakka hakkafood foodporn foodlover foodpic foodphotography foodporn foodculture
Last Sunday’s indulgence 2: fresh made potato chips. Seriously good.
Last night’s mini feast. After finding out that it was Kitchen God Festival day a.k.a. Little Chinese New Years yesterday, I figured it would be fun to honor it by joining in by making a meal using a cooking hearth I own as mandated (my bbq and butane stove), in order to give thanks for having good fortune in always having food to eat this last year. To add more fun, the beau and I made it an indoor picnic meal.
One of the perks with travel is that I get the windows of opportunity to seek out new foods and drink. With business travel that perk is often harder to obtain, with being on work schedules and rushing around without much personal at all. Here I managed a 20 min lunch break walk away from the factory to the local neighbourhood street market. Two other people joined me on my adventure, factory hq staffers a visiting from Taiwan. We came across this dried food snack vendor and we all grinned big smiles. Such fresh variety of local dried fruits, nuts, and seafood (mostly fish and squid). We tasted as many things as we could then purchased an array of nuts and plums before we rushed back for our jam packed afternoon of things to do. So glad for the chance experience.
A delicious variety of dried plums. Wish I had bought more cash… So good. Ones purchased from the local Xiamen Tong’an District small neighbourhood street market. Good memories…
Instagram – Aperitif time. A little to nosh on before heading out to dinner at my dear friends/whisky coach’s place. I’m a lucky gal.
