Won-Ton Soup with Romaine Lettuce
I am a self-taught cook. I have taken cooking lessons a few times, but mostly I learn as I go. I also taught a few cooking lessons myself. When Stephanie and David were in elementary school, I offered my cooking lessons in a silent auction to rasie money for their school. I would put a menu and had the place setting on display for parents to bid on a cooking lesson for four.
Shanghi Style Noodles
It proved to be such a success that I decided to give more cooking lessons after. I am comfortable giving Asian cooking lessons because of my heritage background.Ma-Pou Tofu with Mushrooms.
I have also given my cooking as an end of the year thank-you gift to my children't music teachers. I would go to their homes (with all my supplies and food) and cook a meal for them as they entertained specials guests of their choice. Of course, my kids' teachers LOVE me (and my kids too)!
And oh...with a subscription to "Bon Appetit" , I consider myself well-equipted with the knowledge of the latest food trends and cooking tips/techniques. With a hungry appetite, how can one NOT be a foodie?
Stir Fry Eggplant with sweet/sour Sauce
That wraps up a few of the dishes that are the usual fare in my house. I will share Western-style dishes in the near future. Finally, here are little video clips of "little Gordon" (aka the @#^& Gordon Ramsey Part 1 and Part 2). I personally love the Part 2 and I feel like Gordon every time we eat out when we get a lousy service...I wish I could be like Gordon (LOL)! Enjoy!
