Last weekend my Austrian friends Michael and Anja asked me to teach them how to make sushi. They especially love Maki sushi and really wanted to know how to make it.
I always remember my first job in a hotel was working in cold kitchen for a buffet restaurant and we always had to make lots of different kinds of sushi. There are lots of people in Taiwan who absolutely love Japanese food and especially sushi. We’ve been influenced by Japanese culture and fashion in many different ways and Taiwan was under Japanese rule for fifty years, so sushi is not that unfamiliar a dish for all Taiwanese people.
Michael and Anja learnt to make sushi for the very first time and and I’m so proud of their sushi. It is a wonderful experience for me to practice teaching cooking. We went to our local Chinese supermarket together where I showed them what ingredients are necessary then we went to their home where we made the sushi.
So, here are the photos we took on the day and I hope you enjoy them.

This is my first blog on blogspot for my Chinese cooking class. I’m an experienced chef who is married to a lovely English man and currently settled in Edinburgh.
I’ve always had a passion for cooking and I’ve learnt so many amazing Chinese foods from my grandmother (she is originally from Guangdong), grandfather (he is originally from Sichuan) and my mother.
I was born and grew up in Taipei, Taiwan and I also lived in Shanghai for one year. I’ve been surrounded by Chinese and Taiwanese food all my life and I studied in one of the top 100 hospitality colleges in the world. My teacher in college was two times cooking Olympics champion.
I will teach you how to cook proper Chinese/Taiwanese food, how to choose the ingredients and different sauces in the chinese supermarket. I can even teach you some Chinese language as I’m completely fluent in both traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese. I ensure you will get more than what you paid for and my class is worth every penny !
Why don’t you join me to explore different Chinese foods?! I will teach you until you can cook a Chinese meal at home for your friends and family. Don’t be afraid if you think you only have a little experience in cooking or none at all. I’ll be very patient to teach you until you fully understand. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
