My latest articles for Focus on Dalian are here!  For this issue the International Kitchen section focused on Spain and the fabulous romesco sauce.  The Thriving in a Chinese Kitchen section focused on where and what to shop in a city like Dalian.  I shared my tips with readers on my favorites food shops in the city and what the contents of my pantry and fridge look like.  I had a great time with Dan Jones,  the Editor-in-Chief of Focus on Dalian, styling and taking the photos at the Shangri-la Hotel.  Some people were surprised that one of the places I shopped in was Ikea but I have always been a fan of some of their products since they are reasonably priced and fun.  Here in Dalian where there are not many dark beers, theirs hits the spot.  Read the article for more tips and ideas on what to buy.
