Off to China!
Hi folks, I'll be taking a 10-day blogging break because I'm leaving on a business trip to China this afternoon. I'm sure to come back on October 27th with some wondrous food experiences to share with you all. If the Chinese neighborhood in the 13th Arrondisement in Paris can offer me ham and jellyfish salad (delicious! no, really!), just imagine what Beijing and Shanghai hold in store.
I don't know how much extreme eating I'll get in since my traveling companions are all Italian, which leads me to believe they may not be too culinarily adventurous. My colleagues' idea of "exotic" is a chocolate-chip cookie or a blueberry muffin, so, we'll see. If they do have deep fried scorpions in Beijing though, I'll try 'em, after all, they look so much like shrimp scampi, don't they?
So if there's anyone out there who's been to Beijing and/or Shanghai and had a memorable eating experience, I'd love to know about it. Tell us all in a comment!
