紹興醉雞 Shaoxing Drunken Chicken. Usually served cold as an appetizer, Shaoxing Drunken Chicken is famous southern Chinese cuisine loved by many local epicures. Thigh meat is first steamed then soaked in Shaoxing wine along with chicken broth, angelica root, red dates, and goji berries for 1-2 days until the flavor is fully absorbed. Perfect starter for a summer dinner.
Traveling around the world, I’ve seen how those Chinese take out mislead people’s perception about Chinese food. Wok fried, heavy seasoned with soy sauce and MSG, cornstarch thickened at all time is not authentic Chinese cooking. Real Chinese cuisine is mastering selections of fresh ingredients, seasonings, various cooking methods to deliver genuine taste of food that wow your taste buds. I’m no Michelin chef but someone who knows how authentic Chinese cuisine should taste like. Welcome to my dinning table and enjoy the real Chinese food. Bon appétit!
