I had a great Mother's day today. Doris invited me to a Chee Cheong Fun workshop arranged by her at her place. Due to the confidentiality of the chef, I won't be providing much details of the overall process of this workshop. I arrived at her place early and started to help her and Sharon to prepare the ingredients. There were a lot of ingredients to prepare. It took us almost an hour to get the ingredients ready before the workshop proper.
The workshop included making of the Chee Cheong Fun sauce, the chilli sauce, and the different fillings for the Chee Cheong Fun. We also learnt how to prepare a dessert-Almond paste with White Fungus. I must say, the overall experience and the food was truly fantastic! I really love all the Chee Cheong Funs and the Almond dessert!
These were on the menu today.
Chee Cheong Fun with Char Siew Fillings and the Chilli sauce.
Chee Cheong Fun with Fried You Tiao with its sauce. Also known as Zhao Leong Cheong Fun.
This is Fried Chee Cheong Fun with XO Sauce. The Chee Cheong Fun was made with dried shrimp, spring onion and fried shallots fillings. The XO Sauce was made by Sharon. This is truly fantastic! I love this very much!
Fortunately, Doris baked some multigrain buns to feed us. Otherwise, we might have starved a bit while waiting for the food. The multigrain buns were really soft and good.
The workshop stretched longer than expected. The chef was very patient in answering our questions and explaining the process in details! We even have some hands-on making the Chee Cheong Fun ourselves!
All thanks to Doris who hosted the workshop and prepared most of the stuff and baking the buns for us! I had a wonderful afternoon, and get to know more friends with the same interest! ;)
