An excellent way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon is to get together with friends from the Shenyang region to share a traditional hot pot, a celebration of conversation, cooking and eating lasting between 2 and 3 hours. The "hot " has three references: the fire for cooking, the spices for flavouring and the friendship surrounding.
One can even learn how to prepare squid. Never too late to acquire new skills!
Fun, friendly and flavourful!
