Lantern Festival Market, Nanjing

Alongside the Lantern Festival was a daytime market selling my two favourite things – food, and lanterns. Also crazy balloons…….

Toffee fruit on a stick…

Sculptured pineapples…..

And this little set-up selling hot, home-made silken tofu, ladled steaming out of the wooden bucket, and topped with chopped pickles, soy sauce, sesame oil and chives. If you don’t like tofu, it’s because you’ve never eaten it freshly home-made like this – don’t scoff, it’s amazingly delicious.
