Fóshān (佛山), Guangdong, CHINA — Every great meal begins with the fun adventure of grocery shopping. This may be tedious for some, but for me it’s another chance to connect with the locals and get seduced into [...]

中国,佛山—每一顿诱人的美食都要从去琳琅满目的菜市场挑选原料而开始。对有人来说,这可能是挺无聊的事情;但对于我来说,却是一个和当地人打交道 的好机会,我还会被诱惑着买晚上菜谱之外的东西。只要有人朝我一笑,叫我一声朋友,并说:好久不见!我就与他们搭话,还买了当天并不需要的西红柿。“我应 该每天都储存西红柿。”我这样安慰自己。
