Coming from a family of chefs, you probably wouldn't be surprised that in our spare time, we like to cook. So thats what we did on the weekend:
All of that seems quite ordinary aye? True.....thats probably a normal lunch/dinner cooking thing that most families do on a weekend.....but what about mooncakes? Yep! That's right! Its that time of the year to start making mooncakes, and let me tell you something, we make the BEST 5-yun mooncakes (The nutty one). Not the crappy ones you get at the shops with a BIT of nuts and alot of fillers. No......ours is 99% nuts.....I know....because I spent 2 hours HAND CHOPPING over 3kg of nuts to make the first batch of fillings. And no I couldn't use a magic mix, or beat it with a rolling pin, it had to be hand chopped...otherwise it'll ruin the texture. So here is a few pics.......not too many so we don't give away our family secret recipe ;)
now that's my kinda weekend!
hehehe any weekend that involves ALOT of food is always good ems! I couldn't even be bothered taking piccies of my 2nd attempt with the dolmades and Tom Yum Goong, which I'm happy to announce that I have perfected! (Well......close to perfecting it)
Its going to be atleast another month before I get any free time to cook on the weekends so I thought I'd make the most of it! :D
mmmm mooncake!! :D~~~~~
well feel free to invite me over to eat =P
Well, we're not a family of chefs, but we also love to cook during our family trips to parks. Good thing the recreation centers here in Denver have grilling stations. My wife's specialty is grilled vegan pizza, while mine is cajun grilled chicken. Ooh, my mouth is watering right now! Do you have any step-by-step baking instructions for mooncakes?
