Hi friends– Looking through summer photos last night and came upon this memorable lunch in a small village overlooking the Yangtze River. Our Chinese friend Thomas, loaded us into his little van for a day up higher into the mountains over the Yangtze. Midday we stopped for our lunch with a view and a big pot of mushroom stew.
Thomas poured the thermos full of scalding water over the tea leaves and filled our cups. And after a wait while the stew was being stirred up in the wok, our lunch arrived on the table– mushrooms, tofu and pork– with rice, ginger, and chili spices to add in.
