Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Casual Friday: A Weekend Getaway…In My Kitchen

Chopstick Cinema

This Week's Film: Mongolian Ping Pong
Cuisine: Mongolian/Chinese

Between writing projects, I will be spending most of this weekend in the kitchen. I’ve got not one but TWO food projects on the menu, so I thought I’d get a head start today by prepping meats and vegetables and making sauces.

Getting a little ahead of myself, tonight, I’ll actually be making and photographing next week’s dish. I wanted to make it while all the ingredients are still nice and fresh. And the recipe is a little complex, so I wanted the extra time to get it just right. Next week is kinda special, so I’ll be revealing the details of the dish and my film feature on Monday.

And tomorrow, I’ll be making this week’s dish to enjoy with my son Will, along with the movie, Mongolian Ping Pong. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Mongolian Chicken recipe.
