Last night friends took us to experience the traditional Hot Pot. This consists of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. This was a great way to dine with friends in a fun, sharing way. It's kind of like a mini cook off. My favorite ingredients were; king prawn skewers, mini corn-cobs, tofu and fish skin. This is nothing like the Lancashire hot pot which us northerners may be used to!
