I miss Taiwan. It's been a while since I last visited it and I am craving for a slice of authentic Taiwanese street fare. And how fortunate that I have my favourite sifu, Chef Eric to teach me how to cook Taiwanese street snacks. Hurrah!
The class was held at Mountbatten Community Centre. Chef Eric had his colleague Peggy to assist him. There were 13 participants.
Ingredients for Taiwanese prata (pancake)
Soon the whole kitchen was filled with the aroma of food. Chef Eric made cooking such a breeze. Within an hour, the 3 dishes were done. After taking photos of each dish, every one was given a portion to taste. :)
Chef Eric shared many cooking tips with us. He recommended several brands of ingredients and where to get them. The sauces he uses are indeed more fragrant and make the dishes taste better.

What we learnt :
1) XXL Extra Large Crispy Chicken Cutlets
2) Braised Pork Mince on Rice
3) The Taiwanese Prata
Eating these yummy snacks seemed to transport me to the night markets of Taiwan's bustling cities. Looks like I have to plan a trip to Taiwan soon for some adventure. :)
When hubby came to fetch me, he was treated to the food as well. Thanks to Chef Eric. :)
