Appetizing Asia

Dim Sum...Yum Yum!

My team of culinary adventurers just returned from China and Hong Kong with sumptuous pictures of the fabulous exotic cuisine that they found. Stroll with me down Beijing's bustling Night Food Market to see what unusual delectables the vendors are offering. Much of the food is grilled, but I think you will see that China's barbecue menu is very different from the ones we are used to serving in the United States. Creativity is a must when you have to feed over a billion people. Next time you are not sure what to make for that special summer dinner party, remember that almost anything looks good on a skewer as long as its cooked on a grill!
