At the time of my last post the weather was still nice, but by now the temperatures have dropped and we’ve already experienced some snow. I am not a big fan of winter at all, I rather have sunny days and summer dress friendly temperatures, but I’m afraid I have seen nothing yet of the fierce winter in Beijing.
Luckily the food makes it all a bit more bearable. The steaming hot buns and these caramalized pieces of yam taste even better when you’re freezing cold. The yam is first deep fried – like almost everything here in China – and later covered with hot caramel and sprinkled with sesame seeds. This savory sweet snack will definitely help you survive the winter.
