For foodies like me, this is a great directory of stores for Gourmet Food in Shanghai:
Finally, I’d like to share a recipe for the German Christmas wine, Glühwein:
3 cinnamon sticks
10 whole cloves
1/2 large orange
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 (750-milliliter) bottles inexpensive dry red wine (such as merlot)
1. Enclose cinnamon sticks and cloves in large mesh tea ball or cheesecloth (breaking cinnamon sticks to fit as necessary); place in large pot. 2. Place orange half on work surface. Using knife, cut thick strips (including peel, pith and a bit of fruit) away from orange.
3. Add water and sugar to spices in pot and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add orange rind to pot, reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
4. Add wine to spice mixture and place pot over medium heat. Heat mixture, stirring occasionally, until hot (do not boil). Pour into mugs, adding a shot of rum to individual servings as desired, and serve hot.
