Chinese Food Rookies

Last week, I had the privilege to help couple high school kids for their school fair, they asked me to teach them some authentic Chinese dishes. I love teaching people about making Chinese food, especially young people. Being very honestly, I had my doubt when I first met "my apprentices". They didn't know what shallot was, and couple of them are vegetarian who didn't even try most of the dish I made for them. Really, I didn't think they could pull it off.
When I was helping them yesterday, I got to know them a little better, I'm impressed by their dedication and the decision to do the best they can. At that moment, I knew they will be just fine.
After going to the fair today, I'm so proud of my apprentices, they really came a long way.
Here is their final products:

There are: Potato Chicken, Satay chicken, pot stickers, Chow Fun with Veggie. Everything tastes great, even my kids ate some. (That meant a lot!)

Good Job David, Katie and Andrea!!! A++++ for you all!

Our CopyKat recipe - Cedar Roasted Salmon

Doesn't it look yummy? If you like salmon and a lot of veggies, you would love this recipe. After Jeff tried this dish at Mitchell's fish market, he was determined to make it himself. I found him the recipe from the website, then he tried to make it, now he calls it his dish.
 For those who wants to try out the dish, click Here for the recipe. Let me know how you like it. If cooking is not your thing, you just have to bug Jeff a lot so he will make it for you.
