Buying food for lunch and dinner

When Michael at the Riverside Hostel, Guilin found we may be able to cook Australian style food he suggested we cook up a few dishes for the staff. Why not we thought and after looking at the kitchen and always loving a challenge, we accepted the offer.

So it was off to the markets to get the necessary requirements. On the way there we saw a commercial kitchen supplier, there was a full street of them and we convinced Michael to buy a couple of trays in which to cook “Impossible Pie” and “Lambs Fry & Bacon” (the kitchen had NOTHING in the way of trays).

So into the market with Michael and “Auntie” who could not speak one word of English. That’s fine as I can’t speak any Chinese. We needed:

Lambs livers for liver and bacon.
Lambs kidneys for deviled kidneys.
Chicken breasts for baked chicken breast
.
Eggs for “Impossible Pie”.
Vegetables: Potatoes, Carrots, Beans.
Milk and cream.

As you will see in the video it is a matter of trying several different stalls but in the end we got what we wanted although we had to buy a whole chicken as they don’t sell breasts only. Milk and cream, both in long life packaging came from a separate provision shop.

The next day “The Wombats” returned alone to buy a dozen drumsticks and more vegies to add to the remains of the chicken and made a chicken casserole for another dinner. On both occasions the locals got a great deal of amusement from seeing Aussies shopping in their market.

About Willie Wombat

Wombats come from Tasmania which is the island state at the bottom end of Australia. We enjoy traveling and try to do a bit before we get too old to enjoy it anymore. We are currently both (Mr. & Mrs. Wombat) in our seventies so the time must come soon to pull up the armchairs and footstools and settle down to life on our 17 acre property 30 klm from Hobart which is the capital of Tasmania.
