Food in local

It is a remote city along the east coast of Ningbo city in China, the place Jiang Jie-shi was born and became the president of the national party of republic china before fleeing to Taiwan in 1949.

Fenghua became an eco-village model in China a few years ago for its environmental village management, for it it costs ¥80 a ticket to visit.

The local food is famous for its chunky and large taro.  Small taro seeds near the big trunky one taste very silky, that is the big difference.  We like to cook it with pickled veggie called Xucai.  I like to eat the tender tube fiber near the trunk as well.

As there is a mountain called Xuedou Hill in Fenghua, the creeks produce lots of tasty wild food, such as clams, fishes…

Local market provides the fresh cattle cuts which is a tradition and is well known for local delicacy, such as beef noodle…

This season’s bamboo is tender and it is of thin, long type,  called “whip bamboo” or “thunder bamboo”.  The tube veggie could be grown in the water.   As it has huge amount of iron, it produces blood red liquid…The rice cake is chewy, stir fried with a special veggie called Jicai, which gives great flavor and aroma.

Those are farmer cooked food, may not look awesome, but it does taste fine.
