Sybaritica's post has sparked my interest to post these two dishes which I made  with dried scallops.  The main feature of these two dishes is to present the scallops in a "classy" way.  The same principle applies:  steam the dried scallops till they become wet and soft.  Do not mix them up but leave them as...

I just published my first cookbook! a real book!

For my friends in the foodblog community!

My Notebook

Dear fellow bloggers and friends,
As many of you know, I am a very curious person,  and cannot stop learning.  I just found out a book making site :  www.Blurb.com, when I was reading another blogger friend ‘s post and her publications.  I cannot wait but to embark on a new project immediately.    As a result of “hard work” these two days during the holiday, I made it!  Here’s my book at the Blurb bookstore.  Although I am placing it for sale on Blurb.com, I do not even know how it works!  Most of all,  money is not what I am pursuing.   I am working on an ebook version but due to some errors it has not been generated yet.  I will be sharing the ebook with all of you free!
All these recipes are actually posted in my foodblog:

What did we eat in Yunnan? — My Yunnan Trip #7

I just returned from a 9 days' trip to Yunnan, China.  The trip was great, but not the food!  In fact, none of my previous China trips had food that satisfied me.  For some of my readers who don't know,  I grew up in Hong Kong which has the best Chinese food.  Cantonese food is...
