Years ago, Hong Kong was a welcome stop on my solo trip around the world videoing cooking schools. Chopsticks Cooking Centre in Kowloon, on the Chinese mainland and a ferry ride over from Hong Kong, was the school scheduled for a shoot. Cecilia Jennie Au-Yang, the Managing Director, is a charming and informed cooking instructor and she prepared dim sum and other regional Chinese dishes. This was my first Asian stop and I was not accustomed to the intense heat and humidity. Same for the cameras! If you and the cameras have spent time in air conditioning, the camera will fog and you will have to wait for it to adjust. This could be awhile and you’ll be sweating!
Once we got rolling, Cecilia and her woks were in action. You’ll see the videos of her recipes and tips on the site and in my ebook: Cooking Tips From Around the World, a Culinary Travel Adventure.
Black Moss aka Fat Choy, grows in the Gobi desert and aids in digestion and used to lower cholesterol. Fat Choy is related to the spirulina edible algae that is often used in super green foods, health supplements and drinks. The Chinese like to use it in recipes in a new year since the pronunciation is similar to Faat Choi which in Chinese means wealth and prosperity. You’ll learn more about Black Moss in this video: http://cookingtipstv.com/v/104,black-moss-it’s-heathy-and-tasty!.html
You’ll find Black Moss in Chinese food stores and restaurants.
