Food For Thought
Fall Volume: 2018 Issue: 25(3) page(s): 4
Welcome to this third issue of the 25th year of Flavor and Fortune. As
always, we include many items readers suggest. We do appreciate all
articles that cross our desk by snail mail, e-mail, or phone. Many thanks
to those who send them.
The article about goose and ducks fascinate. These and all medicinal
items are hard to find without a citation. Wish we had more of them.
This issue also has two book reviews, one a golden oldie thanks to Harley
Spiller. The restaurant review is a new eatery. The chef’s father had a very
successful one when we and our children were lots younger. We loved it
then, and adore it now.
Future issues will include a restaurant with many locations in China and a
first in the United States. We are lucky, it is great, and not a great distance
from where we live. Went there three times in its first six weeks. Other
articles will be about the Hakka, an ethnic group whose size is unknown
because China’s government does not consider them an ethnic minority
but counts them as if a general population group.
There is also an article about the Mosou about whom very little seems to
be known. Another request, frequently received, is about preserved eggs.
They are explored in this issue for the many who did ask about them. Stay
tuned as we dig into the many requests that come our way.
