Howdy folks...

New to these boards because I have been unable to find anything on the internet about techniques of using a bird's nest maker. I have worked in several different proffessional kitchens but pretty much just cook for family and friends these days. Hopefully someone will have some info to help me...

welcome jay,

do you mean the noodles fried into the shape of a bird's nest. if so, i've seen them made in a wok of hot oil. the first was simply to put a block of noodles, i think they were bean thread noodles, into the hot oil, and quickly submerge them by holding them down with a appropriate sized ladel. the nest will form up around the ladel. if you're good and have the right sized ladels, you can use 2, a larger and a smaller ladel, and from the nest a little tighter between them in the oil.

That's really neat buckytom! Kind of like doing a taco salad basket?
