If you are watching your fat intake, this just might be the meal for you. One evening while in China, I was introduced to the popular hot pot method of cooking. This approach to cooking is similar to fondue because of the pots and cooking style. A much larger flame is needed under the pot to keep the broth steaming. For this celebration, each of us had our own pot. (I even gave hubby permission to cook his own dinner, without my supervision!) Beautifully prepared and arranged plates of raw foods and vegetables lined the table ready to be immersed into the well seasoned broth. With a little mesh basket in one hand and a cold beer in the other, we delighted in plunging our choices into the bubbling liquid. As you can see from the pictures some of the foods we used were tofu, dry rice noodles, slices of fish, tissue thin slices of pork, crispy green cabbage, lettuce, celery, mounds of spinach-even eggs. The varitey of what you can use is endless. We were also offered about fiftteen different sauces to pour over the cooked food. This is an absolute must experience when you visit China.
