Zoom-Roast Duck Stuffing, Oyster Rolls and Squash Melon Soup Demonstration 12/20/20
Zoom - Joong demonstration 12/6/2020
Thank you everyone for your patience. We started about 10 minutes late due to technical difficulties but after that all went smoothly. I was nervous and felt more comfortable as time went on. About 17 people popped in/out and some from the mainland also zoomed in. I was happy to see my cousins from San Fran and Washington. Eugene and I was also stoked to see Aunty June Tong join in. She gave us great tips and shared her knowledge. She was delighted to see traditional Chinese recipes carried on to the next generation and offered to help with future demonstrations. If anyone is interested in a joong mold please contact me and I'll see if we can order them thru Aunty June. It was fun to interact with the Zoomers, there were good questions, positive feedback and requests for recipes like taro cake, Jai, stuffed duck, and ma tai siu. Kudos to Eugene Kam for the excellent recording, lighting, sound system and Zoom tech support. We were encouraged with this first Zoom demo, so stay tuned for more events.
This pandemic has encouraged our family to try a new summer recipe that has become one of our all time favorites. We hope that you will try it, especially since the holidays are right around the corner. It’s very refreshing!
