Binu and the Great Wall

Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

I really like living next door to Coventry market. On a Saturday afternoon, the traders do a roaring trade with really cheap fruits and vegetables to close the week. You can get a basket of fruit and vegetables for 50 pence. I really overdid it today, I bought a melon for 75 pence, several bananas for 25 pence a pound, 3 figs and guavas for a pound, 2 papayas and some plums. I also got some peppers, some cod cheeks and a wild rabbit
Fruits from the market

I panfried the cod cheeks with dried chillies and some soya sauce, added coriander and they were very delicious. I am not at all good at cutting up meat any more - the store owner (he sells fish as well as game) said he had already started the cleaning process and couldn't cut it up for me. So I grilled the whole rabbit with lots of pepper, and some dark soy. I felt like Asterix and Obelix when I tore into the flesh. There is something primeval about it. Apologies to my vegetarian friends!
