Hey hey! I'm planning a Chinese New Year-themed round-up post once the New Year period is finished (it goes for fifteen days), but for now I wanted to share this Chinese meal that I made for my parents a little while ago, shortly after I got Fuchsia Dunlop's Every Grain of Rice. All the recipes are from this book - which is fantastic, and which I highly recommend!
Speaking of Fuchsia Dunlop, I recently tried to get tickets for the Fuchsia Dunlop dinner at Dainty Sichuan, but unfortunately they sold out before I could snaffle them. Boo! Oh well, I'm optimistic that she'll come down again in future!

I remember when I first got Every Grain of Rice, this was one of the first recipes to catch my eye - and I was surprised by how easy this was, given how "restauranty" they look. Essentially you're just sitting the cooked pork wontons in a pungent mixture of chilli oil, minced garlic, soy sauce and Chinkiang vinegar. Totally addictive!
