Here is another end of the year Potluck post. I promise this is the last one. 🙂
The Gilmore Park Church community kitchen also ended the year with a potluck. Potluck is a great way to share a variety of food especially when we have people from different cultures.
Tanni shared with us some pork satay. The pork satay was quite spicy and flavourful. You know, in Malaysia there is no such thing as a pork satay. This is because Satay is a Malay (Muslim) food and they don’t touch pork at all. I would love to have some peanut sauce to go with it just the the way it should be.
Martha made Japchae for the potluck. She told us that wood ear is a very important ingredient for the Japchae because it gives the dish the crunchiness.
Minnie shared with us a Korean seafood and chives pancake. The pancake goes with a soy dipping sauce with peppers and green onions.
Jean brought some cabbage rolls to share. She told us that the hardest part in making cabbage rolls is to get the individual leaves to peel off from the whole cabbage. Anyone has a good way of doing it?
Heidy made a mango pudding for the potluck. Many asked Heidy for the recipe for this mango pudding.
Rowena share with us wonton soup. She prepared the wonton at home and boiled them and make the soup in the kitchen. It’s great to have a bowl of hot steamy soup in this time of year.
Grace made some fried dumplings for the potluck. She told us that she even made the dumpling skins herself. Now that’s a first that I hear of someone making their own wonton skins. I am impressed.
Here we are, toasting for a great new year. From left, Heidy, Tanni, Grace, Rowena, Martha, Jean and Minnie. I am behind the camera!
Yvonne overslept that morning and she came very late. Still she brought some fried spring rolls and wonton. Nice, it was like dessert.
We had a great time getting to know each other better and enjoying all the food.
