My brother and I were planning a 7 course Benihana style Christmas party for about 50 people (doesn't look like it's going to happen this year). But I did a 5 course practice run for a few people last night.

Chef Soo Shee (me) made California Rolls and served warm sake

Chef Jacques Couzee (also me) served Curry Soup with rice "bathers".


Chef Sum Ting Wong (me too) made Dragon Noodles with a zucchini and carrot dragon (he looks better than the one a few posts up), chicken, ramen noodles, and Siracha



Chef No Tsmo King (yep, me) made Beef Stir Fry and an onion volcano


Chef Sum Dum Gai (you guessed it) was going to make an apple dessert but the apples were cantankerous

So he made Asian Bananas Foster Flambe instead with dragon tattoo'd bananas, Canton Ginger Liqueur and Sesame Honey Sticks



And a good time was had by all

Yes Skip, here are some more pics of the back yard. The griddle I picked up from Amazon for $170, free shipping with Amazon Prime. I have used it twice in the past month and it really works well. Heats up fast, two H burners so it cooks pretty evenly.

That looks DELICIOUS Jon, that's a lot of BACON!!!

Looks good Mike.

Do you know the best way to clean it?

Here is a good video.
Our grill became almost non stick after years doing it this way.

Do NOT use ice, That draws out the oil, and can crack that top in two.
Do not use soap or grease cutter as this too draws out the oil.
No cold water or pickle juice either.

Good luck!

Nice Carbonara! I make mine with pancetta instead of bacon, and add green peas.

Mike have you ever used Lady Finger Bananas in your Bananas Foster? If you haven't try it. It's quite on improvement! I could get all boring talking about how before the late 50's the bananas were a better, and different, variety but I don't want to be boring so I won't.

"I could get all boring talking about how before the late 50's the bananas were a better, and different,"

As a food nut I like that kind of boring.
Now I gotta go look it up.

This is no boring....

Since becoming widely popular in the 1800s, Gros Michel was the variety you would see at the produce stand.
According to legend, this kind of banana tasted way better. It was more soft and creamy.

But a disease known as “Race 1” began to kill them off in the ’20s, and by the 1950s banana farmers had turned to the Candevish variant to meet demand.

The song “Yes, We Have No Bananas” was written about this terrible crisis.

Now, a similar disease is after the Candevish. It’s already devastated farms in Asia, the Pacific, and Australia.

Researchers say there’s little doubt that “Race 4” will travel to South and Latin America, where the vast majority of bananas are grown for export to the United States.
