Prosecco

One of my favorite year round drinks to have is Prosecco from Italy. It's crisp, light and fruity flavours always lift my spirits. Since having moved to China for a short term, I've been craving it. It was almost readily available in Vancouver, through certain stores, but here, no luck seeing it yet.

The images above are a just a few of my favorites, by Mionetto Valdobbiadene, sold at BC Liquor Stores, and some cold beer & wine stores. There are quite a few other brands that are just as good, but not as readily available outside of the BC Liquor stores.

If you haven't tried it, really you should, esp during the warm summer days. The Italians would drink it throughout a meal, which can last for hours, esp. with dinner and friends.

It also makes great cocktails, just add fruit mash to it, sort of like an eye-opener.

Those of you with access to this, have one for me please!

Being censored at my end..

Sphaghetti Bolognese - Chinese fusion, originally uploaded by .kaishin.. Hey Everyone,

Just a quick update from Zhuhai. It appears that I still cannot view my own blog here, due to censorship from China, with not allowing commoners to have access to personal blogs, where freedom of speech is performed.

It seems that I can still post, just won't be able to see how it looks post posting. So here goes, first of my posts from China.

Sphaghetti Bolognese - Chinese fusion
Doing with what was available.

Tomato Pulp
Ground Pork
Fresh Tomato
Garlic
Black Ground Pepper
Chilli Flakes (Chinese kind)
Yellow Onion
Green Onion (a bit of it for colour and herb flavour)

Flavour turned out quite well. Def. had a bit of a Chinese flavour to it, due to the difference in pork flavour and it was more chunky, as well as the green onion. Never the less, it was really nice to have some pasta for a change. Now if I could only get my hands on some soil and pots, then I can test grow some of my herb seed pkts I brought…
