Sweet and sour pork, Mongolian beef and Peking duck.
The events you are doing right now are great, especially learning about China's provinces.
This meetup is the next best thing to actually going to China. No need to apply for a visa and the commute is much shorter.
I grew up in New Mexico and Southern California. I also lived near San Francisco which has a famous Chinatown. My parents got me interested in China since I was a kid. My mother has traveled there several times and my stepfather lived in Tianjin. I visited China two years ago and it was more than just a trip. It was an amazing adventure.
It was great meeting everyone in April and learning about Hebei Province.
