China’s Street Food: An Excellent Series

Not sure what got me started writing about food this week, but just received these two clips over the FeedDemon RSS Feeder.

Part 1 looks at China’s historical street food, and for those going to the big “O”next month, you are sure to run into these foods… and I encourage you to try as much as you can.

Part 2 looks at the role of China’s problems with obesity.  Part foreign food, part general poor health, part adding too much oil = China’s expanding waist line.

gotta be honest.. even at 2am, these clips made me hungry.  I am a huge fan of Chinese food, and if you are interested feel free to download a map of China I created a couple years ago using the food flavors of the various regions

    Rich — these videos are great — thanks for posting them. I taught English in Jiangsu in 2002 and while most of my kids had small builds, many of them were noticeable chubby, as were their parents. A weight problem among kids was the last thing I expected when I arrived in China. That being said, I fell in love with the myriad street foods. I am going back for a visit this fall and have been dreaming about hand-pulled noodles since I booked my flight!
