Chef Chris

Yeah, what do you get when  Chris, who loves to cook, comes in from Seattle?  You get a really fabulous multi-course Thai inspired dinner!   We started out with a spicy ginger chicken liver dish, which was a bit like a larb, and a lettuce wrap.  The lettuce wrap included a make your own topping lettuce wrap with lime, onion, ginger, coconut, Thai chilies, peanuts and hoisin sauce.  The lettuce wasn't really a lettuce, rather it was a heart shaped leaf about the size of a grape leaf, but with smooth edges.  We all had fun mixing and matching the wraps.

The main course included cashew fried rice, panang curry chicken, gai lan broccoli, tofu veggie stir fry and a sweet and sour shrimp.  The amazing part about all these dishes is that Chris cooked them all in my friend's really small galley kitchen about 7 ft long, and one cast iron skillet.  Really amazing.

For dessert, we had a lychee tapioca pudding with delicate Thai rice flour cookies.  Dinner with friends was just really a wonderful time, and Chris insisted on doing all the cleaning!  YES!  I am longing forward for the next time Chris is in town.

Chris only comes into town every few years.  My friend just moved into a bigger home with a kitchen twice the size of her last kitchen.  Chris, when you are ready to come back, there will be a bigger kitchen waiting for you!
