My 8th Grade Advisory (we call them Magnets) and I held our first Tasting of the school year, yesterday. The ginger candy and - surprisingly - the fermented tofu in chili oil were hits.

Pandan Coconut Candy (Vietnam), Fresh Rambutan, Ting Ting Jahe Ginger Candy (Indonesia), Fermented Tofu in Chili Oil (China) - $14.01

My 8th grade advisory - the Food Magnet - goes on three field trips throughout the year - one to Boston (our nearest big city). While we are there, we do a mini-food tour of Chinatown, the North End and hit a few other food-ish places.

This episode of Sugar High from the Food Network is about hot desert destinations in Boston, so I thought it would be useful in terms of planning out our December trip.

I have no idea what this is.
