Zhang MEI, founder of the award-winning, sustainable travel company WildChina, discusses her dynamic book, Travels Through Dali: With a Leg of Ham.Yunnan, at the southernmost tip of China, is a cradle of cultural and culinary diversity. Many people know it as the origin of Shangri-la, but it is also home to the region of Dali, a place that has become synonymous with the province. If you go to Yunnan, you must go to Dali. The region is cherished for its unique food--famed ham, mushrooms varietals, cheese-making (a rarity in China), and rare herbs; temperate climate, surrounding rivers and mountains; ethnic diversity--bordering Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar it has been a cultural blotter; and overwhelming hospitality--many a traveler has settled in Dali having fallen in love with the Old Town. Mei returns to her childhood home and journeys through the region, collecting personal stories and rare and authentic home recipes that bring to life the history, heritage, and changing landscape of Dali. Includes metric measures.
