What you'll do

Guests will come to my home and be greeted by me with soft relaxing music in the background. I would already have the ingredients to cook ready on a long table. Guests can stand or sit to watch me instruct them on how to cook the special dish. For example, to make wantons, I will already have the ground pork, salt. pepper, onions, green onions, wanton skins, noodles, ready to go. I will show them how to cut the onions, green onions, how to flavor the ground pork with soy sauce, salt and pepper. I will distribute the wanton skins to the guests and show them how to wrap the wantons. Next, I will show them how to cook the wantons in boiling water. Guests will learn how to fry wantons too. I will show them how to make wanton noodle dish using special sauces and they can learn to cook dry wanton noodles or wanton soup noodles to eat. I will show them how to make wanton soup to go with the dry noodles. It will be authentic Cantonese wanton noodle dish that you can only find in SEA. We will sit down and eat the dish that we have cooked and talked about the history of SEA cuisines. If we have time, we can proceed to Lake Shipp park and walk off the calories, watch the sunset together, watch different Florida birds, and take memorable pictures of the lake and the group. Each activity is 2.5 hrs. long. Guests can choose to stay longer on Lake Shipp to fish or walk by themselves.

Catherine

I was born and raised in South East Asia. Growing up my mother taught me how to cook SEA dishes. I cook them very well and many of my friends like the dishes and wanted me to teach them how to cook some of their favorite dishes. I can cook many SEA dishes that many of my American friends like. For example, authentic Indian curry, egg roll, wantons, Chinese dumplings, miso noodles, stir-fry rice noodles, stir-fry glass noodles, egg-drop soup, sweet-sour soup, etc. I would like to teach guests how to cook a different dish each week, then we get to sit down and enjoy the dish, and we can go to Lake Shipp park to enjoy the sunset while we walk and talk. Alternatively, I can take guests fishing and bird-watching at Lake Shipp.

Where you'll be

We will visit Lake Shipp which is near my house. Lake Shipp park is a large park where locals go boating, fishing, jet-skiing, picnicking, walking, jogging, watching sunset, dog-walking, or have a family time together. They have playgrounds for kids, and many different species of birds that you could watch. It is a very beautiful park that is clean with boat ramps for lake access. It has plenty of picnic tables and restrooms for visitors.
