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.
I had been asked to cook Australian food for lunch and dinner at the Riverside Hostel Guilin. So we went to the market to buy food
