I’d mentally filed this away as a flan dish by Spode. I don’t know why, perhaps my subconscious associates the two, thus demonstrating the strange and fallible nature of one’s inner self. On reflection, I believe I was thinking about those lovely botanical dishes they do. This doesn’t have flowers, instead a charmingly handpainted sort of trefoil border, and just the hint of something drawn on the bottom. I suspect it may be export china.

But Spode still has a poignancy, and all the more so now. And by Spode I mean, of course, the more famous progeny: Sir Roderick Spode, 7th Earl of Sidcup, P. G. Wodehouse’s masterly satire on Mosely’s blackshirts, whose like we most troublingly see venting their bile again today. Spode had a motley crew of black shorts (all the shirt colours having been already taken), and just like the hateful bunch last week pustulating with their tiki torches, were punctured for them. The words of one Bertram Wilberforce Wooster need no further comment. “The trouble with you, Spode, is that just because you have succeeded in inducing a handful of half-wits to disfigure the London scene by going about in black shorts, you think you’re someone. You hear them shouting ‘Heil, Spode!’ and you imagine it is the Voice of the People. That is where you make your bloomer. What the Voice of the People is saying is: ‘Look at that frightful ass Spode swanking about in footer bags! Did you ever in your puff see such a perfect perisher?’”

These meat pies are called Guo Kui in Sichuan. The tender dough is rolled into a long strip and stuffed twice with ground meat, folded and rolled again into round pancakes, deep fried until golden and then baked in a charcoal pit. One bite into the meat pie and the crispy flaky bits crumble down onto the table. The chili pepper and Sichuan peppercorn spiced tender meat filling and oozing juice pique all of the sensations in your mouth, begging for your second bite 😋😋😋

I was sad and happy when I left Chengdu. Sad that this amazing artisan food is not easily accessible anymore, happy that I got to finish my trip without gaining 30 pounds 😉
