Hey, good looking! What’s that you’re cooking?
- 山 – Shan1
- 珍 – Zhen1
- 海 – Hai3
- 味 – Wei4
Or I suppose I could write it out like this: shān zhēn hǎi wèi.
So today’s idiom literally translates to:
The treasures of the mountains and the taste of the seas
Pretty florid to describe fancy food! This idiom is used to describe delectable dishes and mouth-watering morsels, presumably all imported. Just kidding, you can still eat fancy and support your local farmers and growers, yeah?
Eat up, guys!
