    ... exquisitelly wonderful sauce in the history of cuisine. Ever. The year 1974, though in the Western world most notorious for me being born and Abba winning the Eurovision song contest, is in the Xi'an area most famed for the discovery of a bunch of clay men. While digging for water, a local farmer discovered what looked like a clay representation of a soldier, and the rest is, you know History, with a big H. The site of the Terracotta Warriors ...
