Andrew Zimmern’s Family Meals

Slide 11 of 12

Chengdu, China

“Tiger Chen, kung fu film star and food lover, invited me to try some of his mother’s legendary cooking in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province in Southwest China. She makes her own sausage, smoked bacon with pickled vegetables and lots more. So complex and spicy, it made my nose and eyes run like crazy. I love this woman.”
