Dreams of Green
Hello, Friends of The Mala Market!
Longer days are almost here again, and Fongchong and I are headed to Los Angeles for a much-needed vacay during her spring break. So I'm writing mainly to let you know that orders placed during the week of March 11 will not be shipped until the week of March 18. If you think you'll need any Sichuan necessities before then, please order before March 11. Otherwise, we will ship as soon as humanly possible after our return.
We'll be visiting our old stomping grounds in the San Gabriel Valley to taste for ourselves the latest and greatest in Sichuan and other regional Chinese cuisines in America. Besides loads of inspiration for our own cooking, hopefully we will also return with another in our series of Great Sichuan Restaurant Recipes.
In the meantime, here are two new recipes on our blog. The Itty Bitty Baby Bok Choy in a Vinegar-Oyster sauce primes you for the season to come with bright green freshness and a tangy umami sauce. While the Sichuan Red-Braised Beef Noodle Soup is meant to soften the cold reality that most of us still face in early March.
