Lunchtime at Riverbend on a cold and windy day

And what better way to warm up than around an all-fired-up "Steamboat", a.k.a. "playing with food", with two of the nicest people in Nelligen who are making their way across the river (by car across the bridge, I might add) as I type.

If you haven't experienced the magic of a "Steamboat" yet, it's a Chinese cooking tradition whereby friends and family sit around a table and dip thinly sliced meats, seafood, and vegetables into a boiling broth.

They only need a few seconds' cooking time. Little steamboat baskets are used to fish cooked items out of the boiling stock. For those who are more adept, as soon as the lid is off, it becomes a chopstick free-for-all. It makes for a great meal, and it's social, interactive and a lot of fun.
