Let us exchange recipes!

From: Canada Ontario Toronto @pourquoipasamour Time : 2013-01-06 04:09:46
Recently a lady member of CLM gave the idea of creating a space where we could exchange jokes etc. I find a fantastic idea, laughter is a good remedy. I wish to give an idea too, why don't we exchange recipes? Some of my hobbies are cooking, photography and music. I love to cook. It is not a secret that the richest cuisines in the world are the Chinese and the Turkish. We could also tell our Chinese friends about some Africa, European, Arab etc dishes. Let us include desserts..... If John Abbot agrees, the only thing is that the dishes should be easy to prepare and the ingredients easy to find, readily available. No point in publishing a recipe that is too regional or the ingredients impossible to find or substitute. Let us make it simple. One of the cuisines I love the most is the Greek, simple, tasty, nutritious, healthy and easy to prepare. The Chinese Cantonese dishes are in the same category. No point is publishing a dish of the Traditional French cuisine with fancy sauces etc, this would not be a "chef's exchange", let us make it fun.

First dish should be one every Chinese person knows how to cook 'Egg and Tomato Soup'!

I think this is also a great idea. However I think there should be an added rule that the dish must be from your native country.

We'll look at adding this at the same time as the humour section.

I like this idea and it will be very fun. If you share your recipe you also can create a funny or lovely name, maybe relative to your feelings. For example, your dish name could be "Heart Broken", could be "Honey Moon". Hahahahaha, when people follow your recipe to cook, not just share your yummy food, but also share life feelings, to makes them thinking what about their relationship, doing well or not.

Hahahahaha…… ‘Egg and Tomato Soup', simple but delicious. Cultivating a good relationship could be in a simple way but must be delicious, isn’t it ;-)

Haha.... you are funny. You know Chinese well. Almost the same here, frieded egg with tomato. But in Guangzhou, I think the eastiest cuisine for the kids to first to learn cooking is Chinese cured sausage with rice. Very easy, just put the cured sausage, rice and water in a electric cooker, then press the button. I still remember the fist cured sausage rice that my young brother fist cook for us. He was 8 years old. He did not take the green strings off the cured sausages when he put them into the rice , so that evening, we were surprice and happy to try the first green rice in our life. We still laugh when we talk about his first cook... In Guangdong, the weather is hot and humid, so many houswives know how to cook 'lao huo tang', slow cooked soups, because people believe soup in day can keep balance of physical. They know how to use different herb or materials to cook different 'lao huo tang' according to different seasons and different physical condition. I think slow cooked soup (lao huo tang) is a kind of important and typical cooking in Guangdong cuisine.

@Grace172
I have actually tried green rice dinner - same problem as your brother - left the strings on the sausage (they have some dye in them) and I got the same effect!
Not to be outdone - I tried some other herbs and spices the next time and got yellow and red rice! Saffron Rice is an Indian variation, I believe!

Other issues of color transfer in China - when my ayi washed all my nice white business shirts in the washing machine with a red silk shirt - nice shades of pink!

Speaking of delicacies - My local friends have a dish they call 'Cat Rice' - which doesn't contain cats (they assure me)! I am yet to try it!

'Most Fragrant Tofu' is still a problem for me! Not the taste, just the smell!

I'll put up my recipe for 'LaoWaiDoFu' - a variant MaPoDoFu and 'WaiShaoRou' - my variation of HongShaoRou...we need a new forum area!!

Wow, cool idea, I am in:

This time I would like share my favorite dishes:
1. milk and egg (so quick and soft)
1.1 stir one bottle of milk and two eggs together, mix them quite well in a bowl which could transmit the heat well;
1.2 put it into the boiling water just several minutes (make sure not too long, otherwise, it will not be soft enough);
1.3 when it is almost ready, you could put into either sweet condensed milk or soy sauce and cesame oil (my daughter’s favorite) and then enjoy it.

2. Gong Bao Chicken (so popular especially for foreigners)
2.1 fried some peanut with oil for ready (you just need to fry them a little, cos it will continue to change its color after you pick them up);
2.2 chop chicken brest, carrot, onion and green pepper into square pieces and make some small pieces of spring onion, gralic and ginger;
2.3 put some oil into the pan, when it is hot, and put some small pieces of spring onion, gralic and ginger; and then chicken breast; and then carrot; and then onion and green pepper;
2.4 when it is almost ready put the spice ( you could buy at supermarket it is a mix-up spice especially for Gong Bao Chicken) and peanut and some salt inside. And then it is ok, it tastes exactly the flavor in restaurant, Ok then enjoy it. It is just so yummy and nutritious….

@ Grace172 thanks you for sharing your green rice recipe, haha I might change it with sweet Canton sausage, it sounds delicious, heihei, We might go to each other’s city for hanging out and cooking together?

@ Garreth to my surprise, Garreth, as a bar owner, you don’t share any recipe here, are they your secrets in your bar? Haha, and dare you go to Canton for Grace’s green rice dinner? You chicken?

I have a good one for all the Chinese ladies..

Shrimp cooked any way you like.

Ingredients..

Shrimp

Instructions...

Cook any way you like, just please, PLEASE take the heads off.

This recipie actually works for fish or pretty much anything you cook. We have an issue with food that can watch us while we eat it. It makes us feel guilty. For some reason this doesnt apply to crawfish. I know its wierd, they are almost the same as shrimp.. It must be a Cajun thing, they are strange people from the swamps (who are amazing cooks and once in a while they trn out a pretty good quarterback) and nobody can understand the Cajun accent anyway so its just better not to ask why.

nice to share the reipies.
But where are the jokes?

Need a lot laughter!

Good Idea, but with minimum ingredients. Start off with vegetables on the wok

Maybe web-site can put together a cook book of proven recipes. But include, photos and step by step, so even a senior citizens can follow, with-out burning down the kitchen.

@sandy339

Is bottle = 250ml, to make this successful we have to present our recipes with standard measurements.
