Short introduction of Bruno

During the event, with my cute host Andralynn from Maison Ace Team, we get to introduce the story behind each dishes and also demonstrate how to cook each dish!

The first dish we were cooking was Yakgaejang (육개장) - Spicy mushroom soup. This soup dish were usually eaten during winter to keep warm but it is also a nourishing soup to be consume in summer to fight summer heat. In this session, Bruno have prepared this dish, Kinoko Takikomi Gohan - translate as mushroom boiled rice which the Japanese usually eat in the morning for breakfast. It is something really special! Would have never thought of using soup to create a rice dish 😋

Doesn't it look lovely & delicious! The colours is so vibrant! Surprisingly, it does not taste spicy after making it into a rice dish! 🍚
The second dish we were cooking was Samgyetang- Chicken ginseng soup. A popular dish that will flood the Korean food streets & restaurants during the hottest days of summer (3 bok: 삼복). Koreans traditionally eat this dish during the hot summer to keep their energy and to balance their body heat. there is this saying in Korean / Chinese, Yi yeol chi yeol (以熱治熱: 이열치열) - which means fight fire with fire. This is a must eat dish like singapore local dessert, tang yuan to be eaten on 15th day of CNY.

Look at the garnishing! With a little reds and greens, this chicken soup totally looks so good! Also a little secret - it has glutinous rice inside! During our vip session, we also received how many comments how ladies love that this is a whole chicken which looks lovely for presentation.
The final dish that Andraylynn cooked which was very special and innovative dish was Ebi Kimchi Cream Sauce - which tasted a bit tangy and spicy. This dish was made with radish kimchi!

DO YOU KNOW?
In Korea, there are more than 180 different varieties of kimchi, but the common ones are usually 13 varieties. Kimchi started long ago in our ancestors time which they eat these fermented vegetables in winter. However in recent times when chilli powder was introduce, that is where kimchi started to become spicy.
And this Kimchi Kkaduki which we are using are usually paired with soup based food. This is also the reason why we have introduce these 3 dishes together as they are closely related.
Look at it! Doesn't they look amazing and delicious! Trust me they smell, see & taste really good in real life!
Also what's amazing is all 3 dishes were spend less than an hour to complete in a clean, neat & ready to serve! (without including preparation time)
At the end of the sessions, we are also happy to announced & offered to each of our participants a discount code for their shopping with Ksisters & Maison Ace! And to our 2 active participants in each sessions will receive a Lunchbox warmer from Bruno!
We hope everyone in these sessions had a great time cooking & engaging with us online! It is truly a memorable event together & seeing everyone!
