Pork with Aubergine

Celebrating Chinese New Year

A fairly light sauce - with was great. Added a small amount of Chinese Black Vinegar that really lifted it

The aubergines were not fried - so a bit more healthy

Yau Choi with an addition of fermented bamboo shoots

Chicken with preserved beancurd

New book from the awesome Fuchsia Dunlop, and I love Beancurd. So what about Fermented Beancurd.....well lets give it a go

Had this in the store cupboard for some time

So an interesting preparation - the preserved BeanCurd forms a crispy coating for the chicken. Very nice indeed.
