Do not be detoured from your vision, by anything or anyone. Create your masterpiece in everything you do.
I've sat and contiplated this journey many times before. From waking up in the middle of the night, or just staring off into nothing, because some crazy idea pops in my head, or some delicious recipe I want to try, that was on the food channel. Those types of thoghts go through my head on a daily basis. That's how I know I want this, I cant stop thinking about it!!
So with that, comes doubt. The feeling of "Am I I good enough" , "Will I be successful" etc. Yes, and yes. I can't express to you enough, how much i want to succeed in the cooking community. It has become a true passion, and dream, to create recipes that I would have never considered in the past.
Cooking for friends and family, sharing recipes, and watching them enjoy what I have made, gives me a pure sense of joy.
I will continue to learn, I will continue to try new ideas and techniques, I will only get better.
Stay with Company Chow on this journey to the top. We would love to hear from you so give us your feedback, and/or ideas.
Bao bun fun.
LET'S TALK FOOD!
Do you ever want to change up your flavor profile, and shock your tastebuds with a perfect balance of salty, sweet, heat, and acidity. This is the meal for you.
Steamed bao buns is a great way to spice up your average bbq, and be as creative as you want. The bao bun is a great base for any meat or topping you choose.
I went with a paper thin American Wagyu, and a Korean bbq chicken. They both paired so nice with the homemade slaw, and homemade pickled onions. The thick creaminess of the bun, the sweetness from the meat, and the acid from the onions, and slaw is a game changer.
You can choose any meat you want , but i think the key components are the slaw and onions.
Here's what I used for my slaw and onions. Simple and easy
-1 bag shredded green and red cabbage, sweet carrots
-1/2 cucumber sliced. Or substitute with jicama
-1 bunch cilantro
-1 green apple
-1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
-1/4 cup sesame oil
-1 tbsp honey
-Salt and pepper to taste
-Top with black sesame seeds
THE PICKLED ONIONS
-1 red onion, sliced thin
-1/2 cup water
-1/4 cup white vinegar
-1/4 cup apple cider vinegar.( I used a ginger honey infused apple cider vinegar)
-1 1/2 tbsp honey
-1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
Place thinly sliced onions in a large enough mason jar. Pour all other contents into a pot. Medium heat until it starts to simmer, than pour contents into mason jar. Make sure all onions are submereged in the liquid completely. Let cool for approx 20-30 minutes. Your onions should be pickled and ready to eat. Cover and save in the fridge.
LET'S TALK FOOD!
Julia Child nailed it on the head with this statement. If there is no passion or love in what your doing , why do it!
My love for cooking has grown stronger and stronger every time I create something that makes someone smile.
Cooking has made such a difference in my life, its brought back a fire in me that I thought I had lost. It's also been very therapeutic as a natural stresss reliever.
In our line of work everyone needs an outlet, a hobby, something to lose yourself into, and take your mind off things. Cooking is my zen, starting from the shopping, to the dicing, to the sauteing, inhaling of all the aromatics of each element, to the elegant plating. Then ending with that first bite of a simple creation. Priceless!
If you share the same love for cooking as I do, speak up on it! Let me hear what cooking does for you. Do you cook because you truly just love it, do you cook just because you have to survive, or do you cook because your kids are acting like they're starving, even though they just ate 30 minutes ago. Let me know!
