A Cooking Class!
[May 14] I was invited by my principal to a special Saturday cooking class. A chef from a Chinese restaurant would attend and teach the students and their mothers how to make three Chinese dishes.
When I arrived I had the realization that I was one of the 3 teachers present. The other two were in charge of the whole program and I was personally going to be helping my principal….aka we were cooking buddies!
- Kkansyosaeu (깐쇼새우): fried shrimp with hot pepper sauce
- Palbochae (팔보채): 8 different seafood creatures mixed with vegetables
- Samseon Jajang (삼선짜장): stir-fried noodles with seafood (but never fish)
and black soy bean sauce
*Jajang (also spelled jjajang), the name of the sauce, is the Korean pronunciation of the Chinese characters , which literally means “fried sauce.”
I would never be able to make Chinese food without a professional. Ha, and mostly because I didn’t actually cook, I became the impropto camera woman as it usually happens.
My favorite: Kkansyosaeu -can’t go wrong with fried battered shrimp
My least favorite: Samseon Jajang – I am not fond of jajang so I was a bit biased to begin with
