Japanese Leaf

I retake the photo of the Japanese Leaf someone said is Bamboo Leaf. Hope he is wrong. Still can't upload. I chose the smallest size from my cameras 640x480.

The difference between what Chinese restaurant served and what chinese people eat at home there are differences. At home they eat lots of preserved vegetables, egg, all parts of a pig and leftover to recycle and churn into other style. Uses lots of pork fat in their cooking not good for health. Unlike Italian leftover they made into Minestrone with some herb oregano and bay leaf. Why chinese food in restaurant or home task good ? Make a guese and I will share in the next post.

Keep sharing

Sorry I still can't upload my photo of the Japanese Bamoo leaf according to a Chef. My cameras smallest size is 640x480.

Western food are more healthy leftover vegetable in Italian home you make Minestrone soup with herbs. Chinese food in restaurant and home is vastly difference. Only on special occassion you brewed a Herbal chicken or a shark's fin broth with 3/4/5 to 8 treasures you like to call. At home the chinese especially those in China eat lots of preserved vegetable with lots of salt and preserved duck or century eat and any parts of the pig in whatever style you want. the secret ofgood chinese cooking is just a few things. Make a guese? Will share in the next post.
