GUESS WHO I GET TO MEET????? :D
The first ever Asian chef to have his own cooking show on Chinese cuisine on American television, a man with a strong desire to promote Chinese cuisine and Chinese culture, and a wonderful chef whose passion touched every one of his audience - CHEF MARTIN YAN! :D
I was very lucky to be able to attend Chef Yan's blancwok cooking demonstration in Towngas Cooking Centre (bought tickets on the day they take enrollments.. :P). Having watched Chef Yan since the age of 8, I was very excited, like a little girl meeting a Disney princess in Disneyland for the first time - I made sure I was there extra early so I can hopefully get to chat with him and maybe sneak an autograph or photo, was quite creepy I know but I can't help it!! How many times do you get to meet your idol in a lifetime? :)
So the theme of this cooking demonstration was health cooking with nano-ceramic cookware sponsored by Blanc. I hear all sorts of people saying Chef Yan's food is so-so - Yan can only chop they say. So I am here to verify all this and see whether this myth can be busted.
Let's start with his first demostration - Chicken and Beef Fruit Rolls
