Things to Avoid 2: Mixed pot cookery (戒同鍋熟)


List of Things to Avoid:: Mixed pot cookery
The offensive [1] problem of cooking by mixing everything in a pot has already been addressed previously in Section: “Transformations” [2].

Random notes:

[1]: Did someone take liberties in their translation by putting this word here? Yes.

[2]: Not mixing everything up it a dish does makes sense, but fact is, that when it is done well combining things can synthesize new and better flavours. Case in point, the famous Fujian dish Buddha Jumps Over the Wall (佛跳牆). Beyond translation for fun, life has been super crazy; moving, job stuff, more moving, income tax, previous work stuff…it really adds up and eats away any free time one has. This short translation is a good way to get back into things. Stay tuned.
