A journey to the roots of Alex Chen - SOLD OUT

  • Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks 1740 West 2nd Avenue Vancouver, B.C. Canada (map)

I first met Alex Chen when he was a very young chef, willfully honing his craft in the French kitchen,  He left Vancouver for many years, working as chef at the Beverly Hills Hotel.   Alex returned to Vancouver a few years ago with a particular mission, to represent Canada at the prestigious Bocuse d'Or event in Lyon, France this past January.

This evening, Alex will cook a dinner from one of the classic Chinese cookbooks we are proud to sell in our shop, Yan-Kit So's Chinese cookbook.    Imagine how delightful this experience will be, a French chef, inspired by a classic cookbook, his heritage and skill will be our pleasure to enjoy.

Crispy Shrimp Mousse, Hot & Sour Soup with Shrimp, Scallop, Tofu & Wood Ear Mushroom, Honey Garlic Pork Ribs, Egg White, Gaillan, X.O. Sauce Fried Rice. 

I can hardly wait. 

Cost: $75     

Copies of yan-kit's classic Chinese cookbook will be available for purchase at 15% discount.
