Traditional Zhejiang spring rolls or Ma yue jie is another one of my comfort foods. Since the spring rolls require at least 6 dishes, its presence is rare and often only on special occasions or during Ching Ming. I can’t even remember the last time I had them. Luckily, my mom’s friend is the sweetest and wanted to give us a special treat. One bite and it brings back great childhood memories of family and celebration.
It’s always a pleasure to write for foodie magazine. In the March 2014 issue of foodie, I talk about the history, varieties and the health benefits of tea. I also share some of my favorite tea brands.
