Fresh Fruits with Chinese Rice Wine

This Month's Film: Farewell My Concubine
Cuisine: Chinese

For dessert after an Asian meal, I always like to serve a light fruit dish. This time, I had a few lychee fruits on hand, along with a perfectly ripe pear and a juicy naval orange. These I marinated with a little Chinese rice wine and a dash of five-spice powder. Light and lovely with a hint of spice.
