Ants in a Tree is a crowd-pleaser

This Nov. 17, 2017 photo shows “Ants in a Tree” in New York, which is the English translation of the Chinese name of a classic recipe. Built of spicy pork, bean thread noodles (aka cellophane noodles) and scallions, it earned its name because it’s not so far-fetched for the finished dish to call that image to mind, the noodles look like tree branches, the scallions like tree leaves and the little bits of ground pork like ants.
