    Scallop Sauce

    The other day I came across a bottled sauce made with scallops at my local Chinese grocery. Is this used like oyster sauce? I haven't opened the bottle yet, but it looks good. BB
  2. Found these here, along with some other cocktails incorporating western ingredients. Never realized China had it's own cocktail culture, with an entire set of indigenous ingredients and such. :) How cool. "Coral Reef" 35ml Fen Chiew 20ml Blue Mint Wine Put pieces of ice cubes into the shaker. Pour 35ml Fen Chiew and 20ml blue mint wine. Shake well into a cocktail glass. Embellish it with cherries. "Golden Sun" 1 spoon sugar 10 ml Chu Yeh Ching Chiew 30 ml Daqu Liquor Put 3 ice cubes into a glass. Let one spoon of sugar melt in the glass. Pour 10ml Chu Yeh Ching Chiew and 30ml Daqu Liquor. Stir until it cools. Serve in a cocktail glass. Embellish it with a slice of lemon and a bamboo leaf. "Spring Green" 5ml simple syrup 10ml coconut milk 30ml Chu Yeh Ching Chiew Put the above ingredients into the shaker in order. Shake for ten seconds and pour it into a wine glass. Embellish it with a cherry.
  3. We already had 2! One impromptu one at my in-laws on Saturday coz one of the sis was going to be away during CNY. Another one, we had last nite at my parent's...a potluck. The menu was relatively un-banquety and it catered mainly for the grandchildren - 9 of them. We started off with Yee Sang brought/bought by my tai go. This is the pic before "lo hei". This is "during"... and this is "after" We were late so I had to make a quick job of the photo-taking...excuse the quality. Mushroom/veggie dish made by mom Seafood soup with every exotic sea-creature in it made by mom Sweet sour fish fillet made by yee so Deep-fried wantan made by mom and some grandkids Pak cham kai (white chop chicken) made by mom to be taken with Yee Cheong always makes Teochew duck but this time he made braised trotters Since it was my sis's hubby's bday the next day, she made a carrot cake DH and I had a jelly challenge. He made cendol agar-agar while I made lychee agar-agar with big sago balls and kwei feh lychee liqueur. Guess who won? My yee ko made this tong sui, called "mat du yao", it really has 'everything' in it from gingko nuts, red beans, sea coconut, tiny cubed sweet potatoes, longan, lotus seeds.... This year, they seem to be introducing a tiny kam/mandarin orange (next to tong sui). They are quite sweet and cute, and supposedly doesn't give the sup yit effect. After the heavy meal, we went for a walk to the night market (pasar malam in Malay) and bought these neen go in banana leaves. The one on the left is trimmed. 2 down, one to go. The actual in-law do will be on the eve itself. I'll be making braised abalone with mushroom and fatt choy. Soooooo...what are you having? Edited: wrong image was inserted.
  4. Is Taiwanese Chinese food different in some subtle way from mainland Chinese food. Would there be a reason why mainland Chinese diners would be attracted towards a restaurant that serves Taiwanese Chinese food? Thank you all for your insight.
  5. Am trying to work out the Chinese name for these boiled dumplings. The filling is generally made only of prawns and cloud ear funghi, and perhaps bamboo shoots - with a "fun gor" type wrapper; that is, a frilly wheat flour type, not rice pastry. And in yum cha restaurants where they serve from carts, these are always kept on a dedicated cart with boiling water, and a serving boiled to order at the cart - sometimes this is the same cart that serves the gai lan with oyster sauce. Dipping sauce is generally a mix of soy, sesame oil, sugar, sliced scallions, ginger and chilli. I simply cannot hold out till next yum cha visit to ask the trolley ladies, so please sally forth with your wisdom, dear eGulleteers!
  6. press release from The Info-Shop.com 2004/11/24 Have you found that you are shifting your food options to more Hispanic type selections? What is your very favorite Hispanic food? Your opinion on this ...
  7. I am cooking a lot, trying to learn about Chinese and SE Asian cooking. My books refer to black soy and thin or light soy, as well as thick soy. I also have one called Bango Sweet Soy in the fridge that has palm sugar in it and is from Indonesia (oh, how sad things are there). Does anyone know...Are thick soy, black soy, and sweet soy the same thing or are they different? My Koon Chun thick soy lists "soy bean extract" and molasses as ingredients. This makes me wonder about making my own using soy and molasses. I found an earlier thread about favorite soy sauces, but I still don't get this and appreciate any shared knowledge. Taking a moment to figure this out might save me from eating all the BBQ Pork before the significant other returns home. Marinated all night. Cooked till tender and delicious. Mmmmmm

    Leftover Chinese Duck

    :erm: I've been laid up with bronchitis for the last two weeks, and my sister tried to cheer me up by bringing a full-blown roasted Chinese duck. The problem is, I can't swallow anything that isn't the consistency of pudding or soup, so I couldn't do the dish justice. I also have absolutely no stamina for cooking right now. Right now, the duck sits forlornly in my fridge, uneaten. Can it be saved? What can I do with it? It seems such a waste.
  9. Anyone know what that stuff is? I've been trying to figure it out since about 10 minutes after I ate it in the Muslim Quarter of Xi'an in late 2008. It's some kind of starch, mashed or rolled very small, and chewy mutton or lamb or some other strong-flavored meat. I think it had a five-spice powder flavor, or at least star anise. The receptionists at my hostel told me the starch was wheat, but their grasp of non-hostel related English was limited, so I can't be sure of the accuracy of that information. Yeah it was DELICIOUS, and I'd like to make some attempt at replicating it, but clearly I need a little more information before I step down that path...I googled everything I could think of back in 2008, but didn't find anything. Anyone have a clue? Or know of a better place to pose this question? Cheers! edit: hmm guess maybe this should've gone in China: dining. Sorry! Though I am looking for a recipe...

    Clay Pot Rice

    I am craving clay pot rice with cured meats... and would like to try to make it at home. I had always assumed that you cook the rice as per a normal pot (high heat to bring to a boil and then very low heat to cook through). But I've seen pictures of clay pots with jet engine burners at very high heat for claypot rice. I want to have a good amout of crunchy bits on the outside - so is high heat necessary? When do you turn down the heat?
  11. Personally I'm not aware of many Chinese restaurants (I can't think of any), that take serving Chinese tea seriously. Are there much Chinese restaurants that serve high quality tea to their customers(anywhere in the world)? Tea is such an integral part of the diining experience at Chinese restaurants, that they should taking serving tea seriously. -Steve

    yunan pot

    I recently read about Yunan steam cooking. When I googled images , I found one photo which is almost the same as a certain claypot used in Eastern Turkey to steam-bake bread and steam-cook poultry and meat dishes. Does anyone know where I can purchase one on line? Does anyone have the time to share some information on how to cook in this pot? By the way, I love cooking in my Korean glazed earthenware pot. Does anyone know the reason why it is totally glazed? .Thanks
  15. (Edit: This thread is a split of several posts from the thread on Jean-Georges Vongerichten's new Chinese restaurant, "66," in New York City) ----------------------------------------- I'll tell you what I'm hearing, and I bet this is true: you're all talking about technique. That's clearly an area in which Jean-Georges Vongerichten is going to have to play catch-up. I think he can get there -- the guy can do anything -- but that's where he's weak. But here's where he is totally going to kick the ass of every Chinese restaurant America has ever seen: he's going to have the best product. The reality is that most Chinese restaurants -- even the very high-end ones -- get crap-ass product when you judge it by the standards of top-tier haute-cuisine restaurants. I mean, when is the last time you had an excellent piece of beef in a Chinese restaurant? Never, if I may be so bold as to answer for you. It just doesn't happen under any normal set of circumstances. But if Jean-Georges Vongerichten is buying beef, he's going to get it from a serious supplier and it's going to be steakhouse-quality. This is where he's going to be the market leader: ingredients. Now let's see if he can get his kitchen up to speed on cooking those ingredients. If he succeeds at that, will anybody be able to touch him? I don't think so; not until the whole Chinese restaurant community moves into a new era in order to catch up.
  16. I find that metal spoons have an unpleasant taste, while porcelain is much more "taste inert". This is especially apparent when using the spoon to eat a soup as there is more mouth contact.

    North Shore Chinese Delivery

    Anyone have any suggestions for good Chinese delivery on the North Shore? Too lazy and tired for takeout.

    Chinese food in Italy

    I just came back from Italy and had some really delicious Wenzhou cuisine while in Florence and Rome. Has anyone had similar experiences? Has anyone eaten a meal in a Chinese home in Italy, too? Have you noticed any interesting combinations of cuisines?
  19. Hello, nice to meet you all! I went to Hong Kong 2 years ago, and one day, our tour guide brought us to this little shop that has the most delicious dessert combination I ever tasted. It consists of black sesame paste and an egg white custard/pudding. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ For the black sesame paste, I found several recipes, all of which calls for rice. I was wondering, will the rice cause the black sesame paste to be more bland, or are there other recipes which only calls for black sesame? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next is the puzzling part of the dessert, which is the egg white custard/pudding. It is sweet, and has the appearance and texture of soya bean curd dessert. So, I hunted up a recipe: ::: Steamed Fresh Milk Custard ::: Fresh milk 2 Cups Egg White 4 Sugar 4 Tablespoonfuls Scald fresh milk. Beat egg white and sugar lightly. Gradually pour warm milk into egg white mixture, strain. Transfer to heat-proof bowls, steam. This recipe was originally the custard with ginger in it, but I omitted the ginger, and it is the closest I can find for the egg white custard/pudding. The original custard/pudding that I ate didn't really have the egg white 'taste'. I'm not too sure how to describe it. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I hope there are people here who have tasted the dessert I described here in Hong Kong too. At any rate, advice is welcome! I will try to make this dessert as soon as I have some free time.

    tofu dumpling

    Can someone tell me how to make tofu dumplings like the sister in Eat Drink Man Woman was making? I can't find anything here or online. Or were they made up for the movie?
  21. on the sichuan peppercorn thread i made reference to the san gabriel valley near los angeles as the ground-zero of chinese immigration and cuisine in north america. here's an article from 1999 in the atlantic--i apologize if it is has been linked to and discussed here before. it verifies that the area has the largest immigrant chinese population in the u.s. more importantly it illustrates why anyone in the u.s who is interested in experiencing a full range of chinese cuisines but cannot go to china should plan a trip to l.a http://www.theatlantic.com/issues/99jan/chinese.htm
  22. Hello everyone Hubby and I will be finally moving to Aberdeen this weekend and we were wondering if anyone has been West Lake Chinese Restaurant in Aberdeen on Route 34. We both fiending for some good dim sum and it's so hard to get to Chinatown early enough for the stuff. Any comments and recs would be appreciated. Amy
  23. Inspired by some wine I bought, I want to take a stab at Szechuan style cuisine. Help me prepare Szechuan or Szechuan style food in my home kitchen. Right now, I am looking for the spicy Szechuan food (though I understand it's not always spicy). I do have some Szechuan peppercorns. I also understand that chilies are a big part of the spice in this style. Living in Texas, I am no stranger to chilies. Both fresh and dried. Fresh jalapenos and serranos are comon items in my kitchen. For dried, I have guajillos and arbols on hand. Do these work in Szechuan cooking, too? What about meats? Beef, pork, chicken.. I like it all. Seafood, too. (shrimp, scallops, etc.) For preparation, I want to start with pretty easy and not too many ingredients. Simple stir fry is always good. something I can knock out pretty quickly on a weekday if I do some prep work the night before would be awesome. Easily obtainable ingredients is key, too. So, tell me what to do! I want to get cooking.

    Pork-flavored stamps

    This is why China is the greatest nation in the world: Stamps released in China to celebrate the Year of the Pig taste like sweet-and-sour pork. That is *so* much better than those Skinny Elvis stamps that tasted like... er, never mind. Edit: you can use one to mail one of these edible postcards made out of squid!
