Hy Jaden…those look awesome! I’ll be making them for restaurant friends Monday. I didn’t see the note on the mushrooms, though.
Thanks for sharing!
btw…hilarious intro….would love to see those old family photos, though…yikes!
It looks good, but I’m laughing too much to think about food. Almost daily I am lamenting my own lack of eyebrows. To make matters worse, now that I am (ahem) a bit older, my eyebrows are partly gray so they look even thinner. I have to use eyebrow pencil or I have no eyebrows at all, and everyone knows that eyebrow pencil is so 70’s. So, moral of the story, no one is ever satisfied!
An awkward, pimply-faced frog?! I can’t believe it!
Love this recipe…. good to see you had more brains than I did: I pulled some puff pastry out of my freezer to cook a pie last week…couldn’t see a use-by date on the packet, assumed it would be OK. Flat and terrible…. one ruined pie!
When Mary and I taped the official video of Taste of the Nation: Toledo this past April 29th, one of the four National Chefs was Eve Aronoff of Eve’s, The Restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan (just around the corner from the famous Zingerman’s Deli). The dish she served at Taste was right off her appetizer menu, the Thai Chicken Dumplings. Jaden, these Chinese BBQ Pastries look just like Eve’s Thai Chicken Dumplings, which were so good! The recipe is available in Eve’s cookbook. I’ll have to point Eve to your recipe next time I see her.
LOL! My daughter has such issues with eyebrows that she saw Freda and could only think “Eyebrows – there should be two of them!”
I love making the lettuce wraps but never thought of putting it into a pastry. You’re a genius!
Think PF Chang is now serving Minced Chicken Lettuce Cups and they highly recommended it to diners. Your puff pastry is “puffed” up to the fullest (was the Big Bad Wolf just around the corner to *huff and puff* ?)- it’s like those 2inch-tall toasts that some HK tea cafes served.
Those pastries look and sounds yummy! I like how you used minced chicken rather than pork. I will have to give this a go. Do you think that the taste will be compromised if I don’t use any Shaoxing wine? I don’t have it in my pantry.
[…] Sunburst and StarBurst fonts. What do bushy eyebrows and chinese bbq pastries have in common? Why Jaden, of course. Talented, funny, and obviously a winner in the dna pool, i find it intensely comforting […]
