Jiajia has been keen to try and cook Western food for some time now. So with a recipe sent from my Mum at the ready she tried her hand at goulash yesterday (once she'd stopped laughing... "gou la shi" in Chinese means "dog poo"!). We shopped for the ingredients in the morning, tracking down paprika, failing to find button mushrooms (we settled for Chinese "not wild" mushrooms instead) and later realised that Ava's house does not contain a tin opener (for our tinned tomatoes). The finished product was very tasty, served with fresh bread (from the French "Carrefour" supermarket) and looked just like the picture in the recipe [see photo]. What a good cook I've found! We're tackling casserole next.
