one of my new favorites on PBS is Joanne Weir's Cooking in the City!
here's a link to her web site where you can find out when the show is on in your area! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Joanne Weir's Cooking in the City

here's one of her recipes (there are more on the website)



Chicken Lettuce Wraps

This is one of those dishes that I have to order every single time I go to Chinatown and see them on the menu. I love the crunch of the lettuce, the saltiness of the soy sauce, and the sweetness of the oyster sauce. You can substitute turkey, pork, or squab with equally delicious results.

2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 pound ground dark meat chicken
8 scallions, white and green parts, minced
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2/3 cup water chestnuts, chopped
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 large head butter lettuce, leaves separated

Warm the oil in a skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, scallions, and cornstarch and cook, stirring constantly, until the chicken is cooked and broken into pieces, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the water chestnuts, soy sauce, ginger, and oyster sauce and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

To serve, take 1 lettuce leaf at a time and spoon a heaping tablespoon of the chicken mixture into the center. Wrap the lettuce around the filling. Serve.

Serves 6

Good Luck!

ya know, that's kinda funny. i've not been shy of alcohol my whole life, to say the least, but i don't think i've ever gotten hiccups from it. if i eat raw carrots too fast, then i will definitely get them, but never from beer, wine, shots, or mixed drinks. hmmmmmmmm....

I get hiccups at the drop of a hat! I don't have to drink or eat anything to get them & they last for a couple of hours at the least! It's very painful. Hubby says it's because I'm full of a lot of hot air! Oh & if I get them once, I'll get them 2 or 3 more times throughout the day.

no, she was just tired and crabby (again) and impatient. Sorry y'all.

Buckytom, I have one of her cookbooks called Chez Panisse, she is amazing. I use some of her recipes frequently.

I saw a couple yesterday afternoon, while getting ready... one was called "Chefs from Napa Valley" and "something Test Kitchen." They were pretty good.
