I am so excited to tell you all about my night out cooking with Ling Ling Asian Kitchen! I had such an amazing time and the food was all so delicious.
I headed over to the Kitchen at Boston Public Market for a night of cooking with Chef Katie Chin. The night started off with Chef Katie telling some very endearing stories of how she grew up cooking with her mom and some of their Chinese New Year traditions. I loved how hands-on and personable she was.
We prepared 2 delicious recipes using such fresh and vibrant ingredients, Asparagus Stir Fry with Shitake Mushrooms and Carmel Glazed Brandied Oranges. The dessert was by far my favorite because you all know that I am a dessert kind of gal! We may have added a little extra brandy. Shhh, don’t tell anyone.
I loved that we actually really cooked as opposed to just watching a cooking demo. I felt like a celebrity chef!
Along with the recipes that we cooked, we got to taste a bunch of Ling Ling products.
We tried two different rice products, the Yakitori Fried Rice, and the Chinese Style Vegetable Fried Rice. Ling Ling fried rice dishes are a one pot meal which is so awesome. They are authentic recipes from Japan and China and include delicious vegetables, filling proteins, and flavorful rice all in one box!
We also tried two different noodle products that are traditional Asian varieties, the Yakisoba Noodles, and the Drunken Noodles. Ling Ling noodle dishes are made with juicy proteins, mouthwatering sauces, and vegetables. Both varieties were delicious. The Drunken Noodles are a little spicy, so if that’s your thing then you are going to want to dive right in.
My favorite by far was the Potstickers. They are like juicy little bites of heaven. Ling Ling potstickers are very well known and popular. They are filled with chicken or pork, and vegetables all wrapped up in a dumpling wrapper to perfect little bites of deliciousness. They each come with Ling Ling signature dipping sauce. I just couldn’t stop eating them!
Chinese New Year is on February 16th this year and our family plans on celebrating with some Ling Ling Yakisoba Noodles, pillowy potstickers, and a vegetable stir fry. We will also throw in the Chinese tradition of lucky money and have some chocolate coins for dessert. Yum!
