Chinese hot-pot


Tuve un maravilloso almuerzo ayer con Bo y una pareja de artistas chinos, graduados de CAFA por cierto, lo cual fue toda una experiencia: una gran olla de carne y vegetales hirviendo que se “tiran” adentro (la olla está dividida en dos: agua hirviendo y agua de chile hirviendo) y cuando están listos se van sacando uno a uno y comiendo con una salsa mixta (ver foto abajo) que se tiene al lado en un plato hondo. Ésto acompañado de leche de soya: muy muy rico!


Had a wonderful lunch yesterday with Bo and a couple of Chinese fine artists which was an experience–a big pot of boiling meat and vegetables that you put in and when ready you just take out one by one and dip it in this mixed sauce that you have in a bowl on the side. Very very good! Accompanied by soy milk!


This is the bar were you mixed the different ingredients with the off-brown sauce.

Este es el bar donde se mezclan los ingredientes con la salsa café claro.


My choice of ingredients: cauliflower paste (dark green), mushrooms, celery, coriander, sesame oil and crushed nuts.

Ingredients ready to go in the boiling bowl.


The pot is split in two: boiling water and spicy chilly-water.
