So, a few of my co-workers and I have gotten together twice now to cook together. One of them is a great chef with a well stocked pantry and top of the line equipment. We pick something to cook that intimidates us and under her guidance we make it happen. The first time it was roasted chicken, and this week it was Chinese food. We first started out with shrimp and cabbage dumplings. It called for napa cabbage, but we used the purple kind which ended up being kind of strange looking, but they tasted alright. We also had a hard time
getting them unstuck from the bottom of the pan.
We then made an incredible white rice...I think it had to do with butter. We rounded it off with Kung Pao chicken. And we couldn't find a great Chinese dessert recipe, so we made delicious chocolate cupcakes from scratch with a yummy peanut butter frosting...delicious!
