Finding Food Treasures

As if by fate, I stepped out of my apartment and bumped into Herri, my friend and neighbour from Germany on his bike, on the sidewalk going to the bank and for some shopping at the wet market. We walked together and he introduced me to some wonderful new food products that without an explanation in English I would never take a second look at. He was going to show me where to buy fresh sheep’s milk cheese at the new section of our local market.

Sheep’s milk cheese with no additives, cured and lightly spiced pieces of pork tenderloin, and a special Chinese sausage, neither sweet nor sour or spicy were my special purchases. I sliced the cheese and the pork tenderloin and had the ingredients for my lunch today, topped off with some sweet and crispy Hami Melon, which is only grown in XinJiang Province in the West of China.

These are the little finds that make living in China so very pleasant and interesting.
