Typical Chinese breakfast in Gwangzhou Provence and elseware is often congee with Chinese donut, or dim sum like chickens feet, cold intestines, and different dumplings. Always tea but usually served in a glass not a cup. It is difficult to hold the boiling tea in a glass with your bare hands. I usually pad my hands with my clothing! BTW very rare to find cheese in China! Dairy products aren't popular at all. Shanti/Mary-Anne

But why dairy products are not too much popular in China? Due to climatic condition or any other factor is responsible for that.

chinese usually use soya milk, instead of cow's milk. never seen a cheese made of soya, though the soya milk processing itself has some similarities in the processing of cheese and not much cow in there i think. though buffalo is mostly the domestic animal found, though buffalo does produce milk and taste much creamier too! to further add, soya milk are produced from soya beans which are the derivatives of soy sauce and the famous tofu or doufu as spelled in chinese pinyin that we find common in chinese meals and can be eaten as is after frying it. for the vegetarians here, soya is a great source of calcium, protein, magnesium and best of all it's very low in calories. in my country, soya milk is a very popular breakfast drink! it is first coagulated (like cheese) then softened and boiled. this drink is sold by vendor's early in the morning by walking in the streets carrying two large canisters. where people approached to buy a cup (about 11 cents in us $) or cups of this warm and flavored (sweetened) soy milk added with tapioca pearls. we locally call this drink as "taho". i think, it's the same thing what they do in china since it is from them we learn to make this nutritious drink. it may be the primary source of calcium for them instead of the cow's milk that we are accustomed for.

I think Cheese is mainly a European dietary custom. In China they have been trying to encourage children to drink milk, but it has not been a custom in China, actually in al Asia for that matter. In Japan due to travel and sofistication cheese is becoming popular but is expensive. Much of the cheese is a powder plastic tasting stuff-simply dreadful according to our numerous Japanese students over the years. Also such as butter, yogurt, cottage cheese all not a foodstuff in China and much of Asia, although in Thailand where there is refrigeration milk is a little more popular, and also in Japan and Korea. The tropical countries have not been traditional milk consumers, whereas the more northern regions of the world, Europe (especially Scandinavia) and North America, have traditionally consumed far more milk and milk products in their diet. In tropical countries where high temperatures and lack of refrigeration has led to the inability to produce and store fresh milk. I think in this recipe Kai made this cheese/sausage sandwich after living in the US. It became Chinese as he is Chinese-Laos. In India paneer is very popular but European melting and creamy cheeses and grating cheeses are not particularily popular where as here in the US, Canada and Europe cheese is available in hundreds of varities. When we make a cheese tray it is common to serve two dozen types of hard, soft and medium cheeses. It is not an unusual meal to just consumer several types of cheese, dried meats, perhaps some bread and wine. This is popular in summer. Shanti/Mary-Anne

my country is tropical, though when i was child my grandma always waits for the milk vendor riding a bicycle to pass by our house and buy us a liter of fresh buffalo milk. and on weekends, she treats us with "taho" (soya milk with tapioca pearls). FYI: we even produce ice cream that was purely made out of buffalo milk that is blended with fruit of the season but what i like most is the avocado flavored ones topped with grated cheese!

too add, we often use butter and salt in making a simple fried rice during breakfast combined with coffee with milk ( evaporated milk mostly). we have about hundreds delicacies/ sweets that are made with condensed milk, evaporated milk. to name a few of my favorites are, "yema", "ubeng-minatamis", "pudding", "halo-halo", "leche flan". this are just the sweets btw and sometimes it is often serve too as desserts. who could miss our "puto" that is topped with grated cheese and the "bibingka" also topped with "keso" or cheese spread. and to add, this isn't the manila itself where culture got in fused with different country but rather in my dad's province alone! and we have about 7,100++ islands depending on low/hide tide. oh! and i almost forgot which is also my fave, the "ensaymada" our own version of croissant but filled with butter on top, sprinkled sugar and garnished with grated cheddar cheese that is very popular on noon time breaks (one thing is for sure here, no bake shop in my country that doesn't serve "ensaymada"). but for commoners like me, we mostly opt for the "pandesal" (peasant bread) and plain butter inside. i used to remember my grand dad dunking the "pandesal" into his coffee before biting into it just like what i saw later when i grew up in the commercial of oreo.
