Some Yummy Chinese Treats

Introducing Chinese dragon fruit. It looks funny, but makes for a beautiful garnish to dress up a plate...
The white 'meat' of the fruit is the same texture as watermelon and has a similar taste.
Fruit, of course, is not only for eating. The Chinese are known for their beautiful and elaborate fruit carvings. While not elaborate per se, this bird was carved from a single apple in less than 5 minutes by a student...
Probably my favorite Chinese treat so far - Peking duck... The traditional way to eat peking duck is in a small wrap, similar to a crepe, with fried leeks and a sweet soy bean sauce... simply delicious.

Robert - I think it would be fun for you to have a show and tell night when you get back so we can sample all of the foods you talk about. :)
