Say that in Chinese
Chinese cookout session with Chef Liang Cheng
Szechwan Court at The Oberoi is, without too much argument, the best Chinese restaurant in Bangalore by far. Discerning diners vouch for the excellence of the food here. Imagine then, an invitation to a culinary demonstration by the Szechwan Court chefs. Naturally, it was a sell-out,with places filling up quickly.
Chef Liang Cheng, the restaurant’s master chef, and Chef Arup Kakati demonstrated the making of Kimchi Salad, Vegetarian Hot & Sour Soup and Crispy Lotus Stem to the enthusiastic group. They focused on the choice of ingredients, authentic condiments and the special techniques that go into creating these popular dishes.
After the workshop there was an elegant lunch to be savoured. Besides the dishes on the demo menu there were Soft Noodles, Chicken Kungpao, Caramelised Onion Fried Rice with Mixed Vegetables, all rounded off with Chef’s choice of dessert. Everyone lingered over the meal, sipping on jasmine tea and telling us what a rewarding afternoon it had been.
