Thanks for all the nominations! The recipe we’ll make on July 25th will be….Kung Pao Chicken! In addition to being one of my favorite Chinese takeout orders, Kung Pao Chicken will also be a good practice in mise en place - there are a lot of ingredients!
I’m also excited to announce our next giveaway. This is a fun one! If you look at the ingredients for Kung Pao Chicken in SFTTSE you’ll notice that it calls for Szechuan peppercorns. These can be hard to find if you don’t have an Asian market in your area. Luckily for us, Grace has come to the rescue! A good friend of hers recently came back from a visit to China and brought her some super-high-quality, authentic Szechuan peppercorns, and she’s going to send a small packet of the peppercorns to the lucky winner of this week’s giveaway! You’ll receive them in plenty of time to make the recipe, and you can tell your friends that these peppercorns are direct from China! All you need to do to enter is a leave a comment on this post answering the following question:
What’s a favorite stir-fry dish (from a restaurant, Chinese takeout, etc) that you wish you knew how to make? (It doesn’t have to be from SFTTSE)
Double bonus! In addition to getting the peppercorns, we will also make the winner’s suggested favorite dish as a special project later on this summer!
You have until Monday, July 16th at 11:59pm EST to enter. Good luck!
