What ever it is the breakfast - or the dinner table in China , this is just far above what we are used to in Denmark. Many danish will think about rice when talking about the chinese food. Actually rice is not what makes the chinese dinner table. Its rather all kind of vegetables and all ( literal) all kinds of animal that walks on four and two legs, and anything that fly or swims.
I have been very pleased with a little help from my good chinese friends at the dinner table. I admit it has more been a matter of avoiding surtain dishes , then choosing some specific dishes ;-) I Guangxi provins - they do raise dogs for eating . Should be very delisiours - according to the locals . Well I don't know about that. Whatever animal is on the dish - nothing is thrown away - everything can be eaten : feets , organs (stomach , liver , lungs etc) ears, the nose of the pic , the tale as well, and even the pigs genitals should be delicious. Talking about fish - nothing is wasted - very nutrition should be the fish head / brain that is just sucked out .
Well I guess it comes down to the hard facts of China history - the ever lasting lack of food compared to a very big population. Nothing shall be vasted. Today it dont seem to be the lack for food that explain the chinese good apetite ; but also the somehow superficial believe that everything in the chinse kitchen is good for your body in one or the other way. I could not help pointing out to one good friend who is a doctor: how comes that the chinese still sufferst from poor health - when they do eat all these organs and strange animals - which should prvent all decises and illness in the body ;-)
I am even beginning to taste the different kitchen here in China - from the very spicy dishes in Sichuan to the sweet dishes in Shanghai . But I admit - I only tasted very very little from the Chinese kitchen.
