Companion video for https://mltshp.com/p/1M5SU , in which I wax rhapsodic about a Chinese condiment that's been watered down for white Americans.
I've hyped them before, but Chinese Cooking Demystified might be my favorite food video bloggers right now. They do their research, and by "research" I don't mean a thorough googling plus maybe a trip to the library; they're based in (iirc) Guangzhou and hit the streets to get their facts straight with the locals. They're also very good at demonstrating and explaining their subjects.
Incidentally, TJ's is also selling a repackaged version of the chili chips snack that's mentioned in passing around 2:30 in the video. Those are also very good -- we keep a bag of them on the coffee table and they're a healthier snack than potato or corn chips because a couple small slivers of pepper are usually sufficient.
