Hunan Province is famously known for its cuisine (well, like almost all the other 22 Chinese provinces). The Chinese New Year break was the perfect opportunity to taste some of it.
Well, I was not disappointed. From Changsha to Zhangjiajie and Fenghuang, Hunan offers a wide variety of dishes from bamboo chicken, duck blood and eggplants. Food was our relief after climbing freezing mountains (Zhangjiajie – the ones that are said to have inspired Avatar) and boating around China little Venice (Fenghuang).
The desserts were a miss – all about colors rather than taste but with such delicious mains, we were already “chibao”.
