The World According To Penne


Penne pasta is a product of Naples, Italy. The pasta was createdto remind the clever Neapolitans of the days when their ancestorsdipped feather quilled pens into bottles of ink in order tocommunicate the written word. Although the pasta has an air ofdelicacy, it is able to hold its weight from the lightest to theheaviest of sauces.

Fortunate Lemon Chicken


A delicious chicken meal for you to prepare at home. The lemon sauce is fresh and tangy and somehow I always end up eating too much :-).It takes a bit to prepare but is worth the effort. And ending the meal with a fortune cookie is great fun ? especially if you write your own fortune and make your own cookies (see below).

Chinese Dumplings on Chinese New Year


One of my fondest childhood memories is the celebrations around Chinese New Year. This was a time of great excitement and joy, families came together, children were given gifts, and everyone enjoyed traditional New Year?s foods. Perhaps my favorite New Year food was Chinese dumplings.

Ma Po Tou Tu (Bean Curd with Chili Sauce)


Ma Po Tou Fu is Sichuan's well known characteristic dish. Tradition has it that during the Tongzhi years of Qing Dynasty, there is a small inn at the WanFu (Innumerable Blessings) bridge outside the north gate of Chengdu, Sichuan. The woman owner Chen is pretty good at cooking. She uses bean curd, tiny sliced beef, hot pepper, Chinese prickly ash, thick bean sauce and other ingredients to cook. The dish tastes hemp (a unique flavor from the Chinese prickly ash), spicy, fresh, fragrant, and it is delicious, it is extremely well received by the people around the town. At that time there was no official name for this dish. Because Chen has pockmarked face ("ma" face with "ma" happens to be the same character as the "ma" or "hemp" flavor from the Chinese prickly ash), people then started calling it "Ma Po To Fu". "Po" in this case means woman, wife. So to translate accurately it means "wife of pockmarked face Tou Fu". From then on it became well-known around the entire nation. It is now a world-renowned Chinese cuisine 100 years later. All the Sichuan restaurants must have this dish. Along with the development of Sichuan cuisine, most of the overseas Chinese restaurants (Sichuan style or not) all carry this famous dish. Not too long ago, the Japanese merchants even imitated Sichuan "Ma Po Tou Fu" and produced canned "Ma Po Tou Fu" which sell quite well around the world.
