I like your pot lid. Not seen (or not noticed?) a wooden one round here before.

Haha, I haven't seen a wooden one for years! Even the traditional round bottom woks are nowhere to buy anymore. This wooden lid came with the handmade wok I ordered online. Glad you like it.

One great memory of my time working in rural projects was staying at a village house up a mountain in Sichuan and watching the grandfather, a retired housebuilder and carpenter, making a perfect pot lid with a plane entirely by eye. He had his own coffin (also a beauty) that he'd made himself in the main room too.

Looks delicious! 黄焖鸡 is big in Kunming. 

 

I'm currently back in the US, or I would follow your recipe and whip some up tonight. 

 

--------------------------- 

One episode of the 《天涯厨王》TV series dealt with finding a top recipe for 黄焖鸡。The traveling chef researched various approaches in a small town near Dali 大理 (Yunnan) and served on a panel of local contestants producing their versions of it.

Not sure which episode.
