Cold platters are commonly served at banquets in the north of China. This dish is a little like a European pate and has a very good flavour. It should be prepared a day in advance and then served cold making menu planning easier. The pork is first blanched for a few minutes to rid it of any impurities and is then slowly simmered in a rich liquid infused with Chinese spices. The cooked meat is removed and the braising liquid reduced. This is then poured over the pork which is left to marinade overnight. This dish is ideal for summertime and would make a tasty cold dish for a picnic.
