Let us follow this line together
Along the two sides of the Qinling Mountains, after eating the least Gansu Tianshui, the sour and spicy Baoji, the Hanzhong full of Sichuan flavors, head east to Mang Mountain in Yumai of Qinling. At its feet, there is a thousand-year-old city. Although it is a northern city, it is full of warm and soft soup taste: this is
Unlike most people's impressions of Henan's "Central Plains", Luoyang is like a gentle and strong woman sitting on the plain on the north bank of the Luo River.
In the Luo River Basin, the paddy fields in the south meet the dry fields in the north, and rice farming has passed the baton to millet farming.
Speaking of Henan cuisine, most people can’t escape
, Jianhe, Qianhe, Luohe pass through the city, coupled with a deep-rooted history of “cooking”-as early as the Shang and Zhou dynasties, the tripod was the food vessel of the nobles and the ritual vessels symbolizing the orthodox of the Central Plains. The stomachs of northern cities have become accustomed to the soothing of soups and water when they were young. Regardless of the height of the temple or the distance between the rivers and lakes, in Luoyang,
When people are complacent about eating Beijing’s "recovered palace dishes",
Water and twenty-four dishes are in their respective positions and appear in order. The first appearance is the eight cold dishes known as the "top eight products". Guests clink glasses to prepare their appetites and welcome the four main dishes of the town table: the original menu is long untestable, but
The "water" of Luoyang water table is also fully reflected in this link: most dishes are "half soup, half dish." Common "eight pieces" members——
: The water table reflects the prosperous and wealthy atmosphere. Pepper and beef and mutton are the legacy of the "Hu Feng" of ethnic integration during the Southern and Northern Dynasties. The soup pot in the streets and alleys hides the life of Luoyang people.
If I heard a Luoyang person tell you
Starting from boiling and ending with bottoming out, this is the life of Luoyang people. For students and office workers, even in the early morning of a turbulent working day, you must check the time gap and have a bowl.
Both meat and vegetables can be used in the soup, and the soup base is their common soul. Unlike the old hot soup in Guangdong, Luoyang soup is often
"Sweet beef soup" sounds like dark dishes, but it is actually a test of beef quality and store confidence. "Sweet" does not refer to sugar, but white soup without salt. The freshness of the ingredients and the proper handling are all exposed in a bowl of sweet soup.
Of course, some people love the original flavor, while others pursue rich flavors and experiences. "Remains of Hu Feng" not only brought beef and mutton to Luoyang soup, but also brought two vital roles:
The thick and foam-resistant ones are thrown into the meat soup and absorb greasy; the ones with their own oil are thrown into the plain soup to increase the creaminess. Both can achieve a delicate balance.
The entrance of the bubble cake, such as a sponge squeezing water, hides the meaty or delicate fragrance, and the onion and ginger fragrance fills the senses with great density. In the autumn day when the cold is gradually rising, a bowl of hot soup and cakes will give you 80% of the chess game in your life.
In this way of eating,
When Luoyang people put down the soup bowl in their hands, the meticulousness and spirit of the thousand-year-old capital are hidden in a series of low-key and colorful snacks.
"Only the true color of the peony, the emperor is moved when the flowers bloom",
, Fresh peony petals, stuffed with red beans, red dates and other ingredients to make sweet plain cakes, according to legend, it was the first creation of a generation of queens;
The deliciousness of peony is the pursuit of Luoyang people "from time to time not eating", and it is known as "fake sea cucumber"
, It shows the Luoyang people's opposite understanding. To cook the noodle corner, you need to use the fresh pork from the hips, add the original broth and stir into the filling, use the leek and yellow cabbage heart to enhance the flavor; then use the fresh water to blanch the noodles, roll the skin and steam, and the noodles will become soft. The skin is tight, the fragrance is not greasy, and it looks like a crescent dumpling.
But to talk about the most common and authentic delicacy in the hearts of Luoyang people, it has to be "heat the rice three times without changing the meat"
The method of making physalis has been passed down from generation to generation and has a history of thousands of years. The pulp mills hidden in the streets of the old city have also become memories of generations. With good physalis, the noodles can also become soft, seasoned with pepper oil, chili oil, and served with more than ten kinds of seasonal side dishes such as soybeans and celery. You can also have a little chive chili sauce, or serve with large petals. Garlic is sour and refreshing.
In this time-honored thousand-year-old capital, there is always the most vivid life and the most serious people for eating (soup).
