    Nor would we want you to; you're much too valuable to us and the image of you suffering stomach cramps brings sympathetic stirrings.

    Does this mean butter is a condiment?

    A food laboratory is the way to go. A time ago we was working and living close to this project and this co-worker of mine and his wife from time to time invited others over for dinners as we all did, but this colleague of mine was a really experimental chef you might say, he mixed anything and everything. Sometimes the food was not the best to put it that way but sometimes it was a great success. I guess the trick is to dare to experiment a little bit. And PS. Moose steaks can be in the freezer for over a year while you are on trips into China, but you have to take the Moose with you on the plane from the US I guess lol.

    Keep us updated on your experimentations.
    And let us know when we need to warn Martin Yan and Susanna Foo there is a new chef on the block.

    That will be VERY romantic indeed. Especially if you both don't get food poisoning.

    Cass,

    There is an old saying (I am not sure that it is Chinese or what)... the path to a woman's heart is through her stomach (Source). I think a more Jewish or Chinese version is that the path to a woman's heart through her man's stomach. It seems to me that many Jewish and Chinese women show their affection by feeding their men.

    Yes, I too was surprised by the refridgerator shelf-life of the various condiments and butter (no, I don't consider butter a condiment). Many of us would be dead by now if the list were actually true. However, I have been on the road so much in the past three weeks (Shantou, Shanghai, Taiwan, Xi'an, and soon Beijing, and Tianjin) that I have to throw food out from the refridgerator between trips. Sigh.

    Wise.
