In your book, you outline how parts of Vancouver and the surrounding area were taken back by government to create the city as it is today. Can you explain how that happened? Yeah, so there was a lot of that. Initially, we put them onto reserves often for the most part left them where they were situated, which is maybe different from the US for they relocated people, thousands of miles sometimes from. From but they put them onto these reserves I think about a place like Vancouver today there's lots and lots of people and urban sprawl, but in those days there wasn't much there, and so they put up Nice generous reserves with good allotment, but then we went back and took it away because they weren't being enterprising people's. You know they're supposed to use those lands and put them to their highest and best youth. It's Kinda this really weird argument, right? We want them to assimilate, but we don't want to compete with them in the markets and so. So, we take away, their one of the things is their ability to sell off her, or they can't sell without written permission from the Indian agent or the Department of Indian Affairs and
Is Shangri-La A Real Place?
"James Hilton was simply dreaming of a place that humans have yearned for since they I learned to yearn a heaven of sorts a Paradise Utopia Xanadu the garden of Eden Shambala Hilton a popular writer in the first half of the twentieth century named his Happy Place Shangrila and he made at wondrous in spiritual talking it high into the mountains in northwest Tibet. It was setting of his nineteen thirty three adventure. Novel lost horizon which instantly became a worldwide bestseller. It was also made into a major Hollywood film. The legendary Frank CAPRA directed and Ronald Colman Jane Wyatt starred in Nineteen thirty seven from the moment lost horizon hit bookstore shelves Shangri la became synonymous with utopia back. Then it was an ideal a place to escape to during a time when the real world had just been through a global war in the Great Depression since then the simple idea of the place has sparked countless trips. Tibet journeys of faith and perseverance of hope and distant. Promise of supposed enlightenment and sometimes disappointment. It's kind of an amazing phenomenon considering that the place doesn't exist and it never has except for ten years or so when what's now called Camp David. The presidential retreat was founded under the name Shangrila by then President Franklin Roosevelt in nineteen forty two. Or at least that was the only time it's existed until recently but let's start at the beginning. Hilton reportedly did most of the research for his novel in the British Museum Library not far from his home in the northeastern part of London. He never actually visited Tibet. Instead he took inspiration for Shangri la from another utopian dream a place known for centuries as Shala we spoke with Ed Birnbaum who lectures on comparative religion mythology and wrote the way to Shambala in nineteen eighty. He said there was one. Sort of very very garbled version of the Shambala myth that Hilton Red and one of the Catholic explorers writings. But it wasn't an all clear. It was the sort of universal theme and at that time. Tibet was pretty much unexplored. So if you're going to look for hidden utopia that was an ideal place to do it. Shala is a Tibetan Buddhist legend about a Utopian Paradise far in the Northern Mountains of Asia. It said to be a spiritual place where people of all religions and backgrounds live together in harmony and also said to be the place from which when Warren Evil Engulf the rest of the world. A leader will emerge to defeat the forces of chaos and usher in a new age of peace and happiness. Shambala grows out of the Buddhist Teaching College Chakra or the wheel of time which states that the center of the universe. Mount Meru sometimes called Mount Subaru. Set to be well. North of Tibet. Birnbaum said people sort of looked at Tibet as this mysterious Utopian kind of place and the Tibetans themselves looked even farther north for that. Utopia Shambala if Hilton who died in nineteen fifty. Four was indeed modeling Shangri la after the Buddhist teachings of Shambala. It might paint him to learn what's happened to his imaginary wonderland because it's become real but not an particularly Buddhist way in two thousand one the Chinese government which is controlled. Tibet since late nineteen fifties changed the name of Zhongdian County to Shangri la for simple purpose to cash in on tourist dollars. Many areas and China had been vying for the right to change their names. Shangri la and took nearly a decade to decide on a winner. Zhongdian one out in. What the Guardian in two thousand six called one of the most day. She's rebranding exercises in history. Today the larger area Shangrila boasts say Shangrila resort a Hilton Garden Inn Shangrila and airport with daily flights to Beijing Shanghai and Lhasa. The capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region in the heart of what Westerners now as Tibet visitors can tour the largest Betton Buddhist monastery in Yunan province. And when they're done they can cough down. Abreu at the Shangri la beer bar tagline beer made in heaven Tibet and the newly named Shangri la a draw for reasons other than tourist traps. Of course Tibet is known. After all is the roof of the world it shares the highest peak in the World Mount Everest with neighboring Nepal. Though that's a long way from Shangri La. The area's natural beauty is breathtaking. Which makes it a destination for outdoor levers. That's especially popular with Chinese tourists. It's harder for Westerners to secure visas to get there. But is this the Shangri La that James Hilton envisioned? Is What modern travelers expect. That it seems is probably up to the pilgrim. Birnbaum said there are different ways of going to Shambala to me what I found most interesting was the symbolism of it sort of reflects an inner journey
Robbie Robertson: Leader of The Band and Architect of Shangri La
"Here's Rick Rubin Malcolm Glad Well Bruce Adam from Shangrila speaking with the studios architect Robbie Robertson. We had a fantastic take the other day a year. And I'm when I was telling the stories of Shangri la you know stories he envisioned this place and built it and it was unbelievable and it was mine it it you know the other guys in the band thought this was a good. Hi Dear but from big pink to. Sammy Davis Junior's house to the worcester. We made these records in not not in studios in other places where there was an atmosphere and it could be our atmosphere and ours. Sounds you know now and every thing was not on somebody else's will way of doing of somebody else's wave likes. You know you would go into the studio Rodeo. And there'd be these used to be these union guys they'd be like Oh looks like it's lunchtime or like what are you talking about lunchtime. We're we're you know we're about to do something something and and they'd be an IV. Like I I don't know this should be louder than don't touch that you know. Yeah so I don't want that I. Ah I don't WanNa do that so I said what we're going to do is we're going to make these clubhouse these workshop these studios does things that is our world and arm music are sound and whether it was true or not. I believed that that it gave it a character and a saying which it did for better or worse. What's what's interesting about? That too. Is that now. It's become more the norm. Yeah Ah that that said when you did it technologically. It was much more difficult to do like when you did it. You needed big studio equipment like today. People people can do it on their laptops so they can. It's easier to make that jump but when you did it. The infrastructure involved was not easy to pull off. It was unheard of except for Les. Paul Les Paul said. I'm going to build studio at my house and I'm GonNa Build an Echo Chamber into the side of this hill right. And he was going to do all of these things. I had an argument demint the other day with Van Morrison about being able to do this kind of thing and because he was saying I only liked the play live just with my band and I go in and we sing and they play this song and we can capture a moment. We've all done that. I know it really well. I played Ricksen music the other day. That was all like first or second takes in it. Was You know songs you've heard. Yeah sounds you've heard a lot so so anyway so van saying it's gotta be live and it's got to be governed by and that's the way it used to be in a way of being I said what about less paw. Aw He overdubbed. He made things he played on top of himself. He doubled tracked. Things invented it so so van says I know but he was magic you recorded at. Sammy Davis Junior House. Yes we made the band album. The brown album And we rented. Sammy Davis Junior House in the Hollywood sunset is at plaza in the Hollywood hills. And we all stayed in the House for the family and we turn the pool house where he used to have have his. Party's with Frank Sinatra the rat back and all these people we turn that Pool House into his studio and the record company Penny thought. This was the worst idea they ever heard. I thought this was ridiculous. He said Dr Fifteen minutes. We have the best studio in the world here. Franks not for records year right all of this stuff and I was like no no no. This is a different thing and finally finally they were like okay. Okay I guess I don't know what you're doing and it's probably going to be bad but serious June didn't show up in another another. Sammy Davis Junior. He owned he still owned the House. He didn't live there so the magic him like he lived there. Stepping in on one of your according to what the House was built lower. You go into the the bathroom in the sink was down here and it was. Everything was built to his specifications you know and and I it seemed like this is great. This is great. Sammy's world's amazing. And so we recorded the album there and then we mix it or we're going to mix the record and there's this guy in New York. Toni Mae was his name and he had mixed the is the brothers. It's your thing. Do what you WanNa they do. So it was such a great sounding record we said wow. Let's see we can get Tony Maiden Mick says and he worked with Phil Ramone and all these people are which so anyway comes in and he puts up the tapes and everything and he says These tapes are awful. I'm going to have to do a lot of work. Arcand this and I thought I don't know if I like that. So anyway. He did a mix. There was not what I wanted at all. It's not the way I heard it all so anyway we're like thanks. Tony See You know and on which songs with these these were on the band album was the night they drove old. DIXIE DOWN UP ON CRIPPLE CREEK Whispering Pines on was wrong with his mixes his mixes were a trying to make this slick and bright and end and there was a witness to it. There was a muddiness to it that that suited the music it was earthy and I I want it that right. But he didn't get the joke so that was okay so I went and mixed the album with guy another another guy at the at the the old Jerry Ragavan said factory in New York this guy of mixed the album we mixed at the guys in the band. We were all in their the in God at the way that that I wanted so we get it and then it's like okay. The guy the mastering in guy his name is Bob Ludwig. You GotTa get him to master your record. So we take the record to Bob. Ludwig and and He puts you know he puts on the tape the mixes and everything and he says Oh boy is like Toni. May He's like I don't know I'm GONNA try see if I can fix this or save this and I'm like That's really depressing. So I go on I tell the other guys I said. I don't know we might have done this all wrong. Everybody's saying it's it's terrible and that you know so the net. I don't know a couple of days later. Bob Ludwig calls me and he says I am such an an idiot. I am such a fool. I didn't get it I so get it. This is maybe be the most interesting record I've ever heard. He said I'm so sorry. And he told me Bob Ludwig he said I made the same mistake when sly stone brought me. There's a riot going on. I thought that that was a big mistake. Sue Two and he said and then I realized it you know I had to accept it the way that I accepted your record and So I was like 'cause I thought he was right hit on and if he had a state with that I don't know what would have happened. So he you you know he mastered at hardly did anything to it in in the mastering and it was just one of those things it was a homemade saying it did have that character to it and that was part of its
"shangrila" Discussed on The Frame
"Home. Would I at the club was very different than lose one or two rap records that will come out. It's like club was drum. Machines break beats and rappers lot light hip hop but none of the record sounded like that the records were all like produced whereas the club was griping and almost like documentary style. I wanted to make that sounded like the club so much of his producing seems almost anthropological that he's going out and opening himself to ideas by watching and listening to other people is that part of what you took away from absolutely I mean I think even says in a later episode that fundamentally. I'm a researcher pitcher. Which I thought was so interesting that <hes> you know he's somebody who just wants more information more data you know he would go work on a world music album or a classical avant garde classical album the stuff he would send me wasn't doesn't the latest hip hop artist? It was underground European avant garde classical music that he was listening to or a podcast he was listening to so I think it was really about trying to stay as open and curious as you can always be and tried to ignore what the outside world tells you you should be doing and I think his role as a producer is to try to impart those same lessons to each and every artist he works with you employ some unusual unusual strategies to tell the story primarily using actors to play Rick Rubin at certain points in his life including a very young actor who wears a Rick Rubin Beard. There's a Marionette. There's a talking rabbit. There's other little devices. I said that you were talking rabbit. There's a re staging of a movie that Rick Rubin was in when you are thinking about all of those different strategies what was driving them with her a unifying theme about those tactics that you employ to tell the story. I feel like a a strategy I've used throughout my career is really letting the subject help dictate the way I tell the story you know doing a film about Fred Rogers. I made a very simple in deep and deliberate film making Cannes film about Rick. I felt like I had this license and I it's not just me my my coderre. I should say a Jeff Malmberg and I you know we strategized about this and said you know how are we going to tell the story. In a way as unconventional is ricky's is and if you look at Rick throughout his life he's had these phases where you must look at him now and say i. He doesn't even seem like the same person he was there and he's had a number of these stages so we just thought well we will have these different representations of rick these different stages and each each new rick emerges in each episode and it was a really interesting challenge but it actually became kind of our key to unlocking at until the story Rick Rubin has on his list of artists that he's worked with incredibly diverse slate beastie boys heavy metal bands like slayer Red Hot Chili peppers. Do you think there's a unifying idea about the kinds of artists he likes to work with and what he brings to a process. It's it's interesting and I talked to Rick fairmount about this that when I was a younger man I made a film about Sam Phillips many many years ago maybe twenty years ago the legendary Memphis producer that discovered elvis Presley Elvis Johnny Cash Carl Perkins Gins Jala Molefe B._B.. King all these great musicians and what Sam believed which I think the same thing that rick believes is I just want to hear something I haven't heard before and I think part of it is is taste like rick says all I have is taste. All I have is my gut. You know that's what I have to listen to and yet he's not trained at all as a musician he really I mean he understands music but he never studied it but also and you see it in the film. I think Rick's whole thing has always been about trying to get somebody's. True self out I mean if you even look at the credit he took on the local jail his first album when he was a very young man. The credit on the record is reduced by Rick Rubin and I think used by yeah reduced by his entire method as a producer is to get to to the essence of who an artist is the name Shangri la comes from the James Hilton Novel Lost Horizons which was turned into a film by Frank Capra and it's this Tibetan utopia and this utopia of Rick Rubin's is more or less recreated in Malibu. Malibu.

The in baton by my Jimmy's friends, and they told me I can basically develop the concept and implement my ideas, and that's how it all started. And who has tourism change to baton? Well, actually, what what I feel has changed. Most were is the infrastructure. It's may be the the road infrastructure guest houses facilities over the past fifteen years have really improved the a lot. So the first time I wasn't baton you barely found guest house in rural areas. But now, you have really along the main road with they call it the highway through Potanin, it's going from the south infants willing to temple the capital till the east, and again, you can exit from some of the song, which is the down in the east of basically, find guest houses in hotels, all along this route, and you know, temple the capital has. Really grown immensely. It's mass. Basically the the population has tripled over the Boston years. And there's a lot of issue with ROY a rural urban migration because of that the the the most of the impact is is on the infrastructure, actually. So what then is is a typical home Stielike as opposed to check into a motel or a hostile. Yes. Oh in Bhutan. You have different categories of home states. You have home stays for example, nearby towns or in towns where you have facilities that are not necessarily. It's not necessarily with attached farm. You stay with a family. You'll you eat with the family, and you have indoor plumbing toilets, maybe sometimes attached to the bedroom where it's in rural areas in village. As you really can state. You can stay in farmhouses very very traditional once in a.

"Nice. Now, you also learnt when you were they discovered in fact that women with trousers can you explain a women are the only people who can inherit property in Bhutan. So sort of a sister would inherit the property and the the brother has to go in if he gets married he has to move in with his wife and Herve extended family if he is single the, and he might go and rent somewhere where maybe his sister will let him live on the farm with her. He can earn enough money through working to buy some property, but he will not inherit it ever. So that's interesting. And you know, it kind of I can see how that logic happened in how it got to that. Because maybe when women didn't really work outside the home as much. This was a way to be more equal Mendome property. But they have to buy it. They can't inherit it fascinating. Civil was your and that would fascinating comes to me every time we chat arrayed anything about Tom. What did you make of it? Bhutan was overwhelming to me. I was there about ten days. Bhutan has a daily set fee. You you can't wonder in the way you do in Nepal. Right. So named they Paul you have tourists everywhere. Just doing everything into bet. You don't have any tour. Like, you're you know, you have to really very rigid the access I feel like it's three kingdoms, and you can compare them one of them when kingdom for countries that you can compare and Tabet is really hard to get into Nepal is really easy to get into and Bhutan is trying to find its way balancing between those two this admission fee, commit Lee when I started to break it down. It turns out that that fee per day, which I think now is it's. It's more than when I went when I went I had to pay two hundred and forty dollars a day, which is why was ten days instead of you know, a month. But it includes your guide which is compulsory. It includes your driver, which is compulsory. It includes your hotel room. You your includes your meals, it's basically all paid for. So while that is still prohibitive to a budget traveler, it is actually quite in line with what leisure travelers pay who are, you know, who don't travel necessarily the way you are. I might they wanna have tourists, but they want to control it and do it in a sustainable way. Which is really how they try to do everything there. They try to find a way forward that is sustainable, and that is socially responsible. But it's treated to us as a Dilip remote kingdom in the clouds where they don't have MTV, and they don't have plastic bags single use bags all of that is, of course, a ridiculous cliche. Exaggeration. That's not really what it is. It is scenic it is clean. It is socially responsible. They're trying to find ways to accommodate, you know, multiple conflicting needs of the people. So everyone recycles pigs are fed weeds which in to my surprise, they are fed pot. So if there is marijuana growing by the side of the road, they will pick it and feed it to the pigs penises and blue ribbons are painted on buildings in rural areas. Farts are funny like everywhere dogs ran freely in the streets barking because nobody wants to lock up the dogs because that would be rude to the dogs everyone. There knows what to do.

So you run one direction the other one the. Female yetis have really long flopping breasts, and they'll trip over those c- run the other way. So everyone knows what to do and you see a yeti.

I was also quite conflicted about that. Because I mean, I went to baton is part of a sponsored trip. It was the place that I would never be able to afford to go to anytime in the near future possibly ever. But it wasn't really something that I questioned because I understood that it was a manner of filtering outs. Kind of people who are less concerned about the country, and they're visiting so much as trying to check something off of a bucket list or hit up every country and all of the tourism officials and people in the industry that I spoke to in the country. They all agreed that they thought it was very effective way of screening tourists. They said that all the tourists that they had were incredibly respectful of the local cultures much more engaged in interested in the country because of the effort at in finances that they had to put forward to visit the country, and they said that they weren't just getting immensely wealthy people. There are people who had been saving for years and years and years ago, so the country so. It's not just in an clay for the rich towards, but what sort of experience do you have once you there? So once you're there, it kind of depends on where you choose to go. A lot of the people are just choosing to go to they go to the capital, they go to paro to see the Tigers Ness, which is the famous monastery up in the mountains side, they go to Poona cod to see the one of the largest songs fortresses in the country.

Well, I've been thinking about you lately, I was excited to chat because I thinking a lot about a food related subjects that I'll bet is near and dear to your heart. Just knowing you as I do. Nervous here. Go ahead. I feel like you're the kind of guy that enjoys a good shower. Beer em. I write a good shower bear a shower beer. You're you're in Vermont. You're shoveling piles a mud places you're doing farm kind of stuff. You're getting dirty, and you come inside to clean off. And you enjoy a nice shower beer, am I right? That would be. That's not in my universe of things. I've ever thought about much less than Joe. Well, it's about time. You start Chris because I'm here to tell you about the deliciousness of a good shower. Beer, beer, tastes, great in the shower. Okay. This is the thing people know about it. And I want you to try it. Okay. So let's get some facts here. Does it matter? What kind of beer? Well, that's a great question. I generally speaking outside of the shower like to pair my beer with weather, the difficulty with pairing the right kind of beer with the shower is do you want to based on the temperature of the shower or the temperature of the outdoors. You mean? Okay. So hold on a second the only two criteria by which you're going to choose your beer is the temperature of the shower or the temperature of the climate outside. I think beer is very weather dependent the climate the atmosphere of like, you know, if I'm going to be inside or outside, and what does the weather outside. What is the mood? You'd like the beers that I drink in the summer versus winter. Very different. Is there is there another factor in beer? Yeah. View. I mean, you could have a wait a minute here. I mean, you could have like a Guinness which the Irish drink all year round, right? Yeah. No, I will say that Guinness. I think is probably the one beer that can be year round beer or like any good stout. That's the kind of beer that. I think works equally well in cold and hot weather, but that's kind of the exception that proves the rule. I think that like, you know, like a nice dark ale or maybe something that's a little bit more bitter. That's really to me that's cold weather outside in the cold. And if I come in and take a hot shower, a nice strong beer to go with that shower is really delightful. Whereas if it's like I've been outside in the sun, and I got hot running around in the in the warm weather, and I come in for a cool shower. I wanna light beer, I wanna logger. Maybe I wanted to have a squeeze a lineman. They're so, okay. So I turn the shower on. I'm standing there naked. And I have a can of beer do. I pop the beer when I'm under the water. Do I drink the beer before? I so pup. I mean, how does this work? Right. I know when you open the beer is up to you. But you're absolutely right. There are some logistics to take out to account here. You you need a good shelf or a rail place where you can put the beer down from time to time out of the flow of the water. Right. You want to keep your beer out of what we call the soap zone. You want the first sip in the shower, a shower is a very invigorating and soothing experience. And so why not add to that beer? And I'm telling you the to go. Well, they go better than you ever could have dreamed. Okay, now is do you definitely want a can of beer and not a bottle of beer for this. I mean, I I'm partial the cans in general. And also that way like if if it does get knocked over you don't have a major problem. Okay. Now, here's the real question. Do you have to finish the beer in the shower at the same time? That's a great question. Chris you see this? You know, I I knew that you were going to understand this concept. Intuitively, even if you hadn't experienced. I don't think..

"Sure. So yes, the north you're up on the edge of the Tibetan plateau and it gets cold. And there's certainly more vegetables and more education than in other parts of Tibet. They were considered to have a very healthy diet as far as to and food went. But you get a lot of cold weather dishes like deep fried. Ribs with a chili bean sauce on them on top of deep fried mint, which is delicious. But only something you really want to eat when it's really cold out and a lot of potato dishes a lot of big potato pancakes. The size of a plate like a massive Lucca with chilies on top. And then if you go all the way down south, you're on the edge of Laos, and you've got a lot of dishes that feel a lot like you would something you would eat in northern Laos. There's fried river weed from the Mekong, which is something that you get in Laos and a lot of dishes that are just grilled on an open fire like fish. That's been stuffed with fresh herbs and fresh chilies lots and lots of fresh chilies down in the south. If you are out in the west by the border with me, and mar you really taste a lot of the foods that are influenced by me, and mar that border wasn't settled until the sixties. So there's a lot of cross cultural trade, and you know, groups are on either side of the border that were historically one group. And the minorities there are the same as the minorities you find in Myanmar. So there are a lot of dishes that have a lot of very bright herbs in them a lot of chilis also and a lot of sour pickled bamboo, which has the sort of funky flavor. That's really nice paired with meats or stood with other vegetables. And then as you head east, you get dishes that are much more sort of traditionally Chinese, you know, things that have waste or sauce in them, depending on which part of the province. They're bordering and then up near Sichuan. Of course, you get a lot of Sichuan pepper corns their pickles in all the regions. Lots of pickles everywhere of different types and central unions foods have a lot of pickles, especially and a lot of dried chillies blend all the different styles in cooking, south the clouds. You have the world's best recipe directive, quote, if you have access to yak meat cutback on the soya sauce. I just thought I've I've never written that phrase ever. Recipe got me going. So let's talk after the recipes, I found interesting. Some of them are really simple, which I like steam pot chicken, chicken, go, gee, berries, ginger and salt peaking Rian soup with lard, salt greens and water. Maybe could talk about those two. I just love the simplicity of those recipes. Yeah. A lot of unions fit is actually very simple because it's farming food. It's peasant food it's people out in the countryside foraging for greens, mushrooms or very popular, and you none and dozens and dozens of varieties grow. And so people are just cooking what they have available in. You know, very simple ways. The steam pot chicken recipe is particularly popular and famous recipe. Someone that Julia child apparently eight when she was living in Kunming during World War Two, and it's made in a very beautiful steam pot, which is a sort of a red clay pot that has like. An upside down funnel in the middle. And the steam comes up from the pot.

"I'm Christopher Kimball today I'm chatting with food and travel writer, Georgia Freeman her new book cooking, south of the clouds gives us a rare glimpse into the foods and flavors of China's Yunan province, Georgia. How are you? I'm good. How are you? I'm good. It's a real pleasure to speak to you. Because we're gonna talk about an area of China. I know absolutely nothing about and you know, a great deal about it. You non where is it? And how did you end up living there? So unanimous in the southwestern corner of China, it's sort of below the edge of the Tibetan plateau and next to me, and mar and Laos and Vietnam, and it also borders Sichuan in some other areas of China that people probably aren't as familiar with. But you get a little bit of the Sichuan flavor. Which is why I mentioned it, and I ended up there because I was studying Chinese in Beijing in college and the weather in Yunan is supposed to be beautiful, and it was very hot in Beijing, and a friend, and I took a week and went there, and I just fell head over heels in love with the place and decided that someday I was moving there men. It took a decade to get back. But my husband deny back in twenty eleven picked up our lives and our cats, and as many things as we thought we would need and moves to which is the capital and lived there for a couple of years is referred to a you referred to it as China's wild west. So could you explain that? And also described very quickly the different regions because they're all very different terms. Of food and everything else. Yeah. So this is an area of China that wasn't actually part of imperial China for very long time. It took until Khan's army came through to actually bring you non into the rest of the country. So it was self governing for a long time. The people who lived in Yunan historically, were not the Han majority of the rest of China. They were minority groups dozens and hundreds of them really that had been pushed up into the mountains through war and displacement over the course of centuries, and because it's an extremely mountainous area or this huge mountain ranges that are carved by these very big rivers that become the Mekong river and different large reverse that come down in through the rest of Asia. It's very mountainous. And so there wasn't a lot of connection to the rest of China. There were a lot of trade routes that went through over the course of time, but different groups were sort of self governing in many areas all within what is now considered Yunan. And a lot of what we consider. Sort of modern. Conveniences didn't make it out to you, non it wasn't as economically developed until the last maybe thirty years or so there were still a lot of dirt roads and the electricity was little bit spotty. And so it's an area that people haven't really traveled to as much. It hasn't had as much economic growth as other parts of China. And as a result. It doesn't feel quite like the rest of the country. There's still a real sense, especially right now that people feel like anything is possible. So the four areas northeast southwest, maybe you could just go through each area. Very very quickly. Does give me an example of a recipe, you might find in each area..

"How can we help you today? Thanks. So I've been working on going through some of my grandmother's old recipes on she's got some cookie recipes that are quite old like from my great, great grandmother's time, and they called for sweet or sour milk. And I was just wondering what that would mean. Tell me what kind of cookie I want the ones I'm looking at. It says it's for sugar cookie. And all the other ingredients are very normal like flour baking powder nutmeg that kind of thing. But then the last ingredient it says a half a Cup of wheat or sour milk. I think I know it's sour milk is. But what would sleep milk be Sweden? Most his regular mill lane all regular milk. And I think the reason they called it's weed is in contrast to the sour milk. Okay. And the sour milk would just mean though 'cause like going off a bit. Or would it be buttermilk? Well, that's a good question. I think sour milk was milk fermented, and you leave it by stove or something and heated buttermilk is buttermilk because you see sour milk pancakes. For example, you see a lot of recipes in the old books for sour milk things. But buttermilk is a very specific thing, which is obviously was left over when to make butter. I thought that you could use either because soured or fermented mill or even butter behave differently would behave differently because he's a different kind of Levinger right because baking powder has an acid and eleven or so you just use baking soda with a soured or buttermilk. Right. Right. So seems odd that they would say either the recipe what kind of Levin or does he use? Baking powder and baking, so they're covering on basis. They're also cookies you not worried about leavening as much as you would be with a cake of some right nine. So it makes less difference. Probably right. But sour milk is a ingredient.
