Looks like you had a great meal!


Sounds like you had a super time. Very glad to see the Taiwanese sandwich made an appearance.


Now there's a strange thing, I was reading Yan Kit So's Chinese Cooking the other night and I was surprised that there was a reference to pine nuts in a recipe - for the life of me I cannot remember which one. It seems that Chinese pine nuts have a slightly different flavour though. I have just done a quick Google and pine nuts appear in a number of recipes. I wonder what Sunflower has to say on the subject?

What a coincidence. I did ask her on the forum and she came back with them being used quite a bit, although like you say they're slightly different. Larger and almost like mini-pine cones to look at, nowhere near the size (obviously) but with the little ridges.
