In the United States, it is called hot and sour soup, and the Chinese call it 酸辣湯, literally “peppered soup with vinegar”.
This month, we are celebrating New Year, not the Christian new year that just passed, but Chinese new year, which will be celebrated on January 28. This year, we are welcoming the Year of the Rooster, and we are starting with a Chinese appetizer classic: spring rolls.
Love is in the air on 196 flavors! Any occasion is good to celebrate love. The bò tái chanh that I am presenting to you today takes us to Vietnam, which will celebrate the Thât-Tich festival this coming Thursday.
August 20th is Thất Tịch festival in Vietnam, the occasion for 196 flavors to feature a country with a rich history, including culinary history.
A sigh of relief for the parents or for the kids? This is back to school week. Vacations are over!
To tell the truth, before taking part in the 196 flavors adventure, my knowledge of Asian cuisine was limited to standard Chinese and Japanese dishes.
