Interest Committee: WHERE IS THE WOK ? – Natalie Wu, Committee Chair

posted Dec 12, 2015, 12:07 PM by Acuw Hawaii

On a lovely Tuesday morning, 22 excited ACUW ladies gathered at Regency Park Rec Room for a special lunch with Chef Gordon Lum! Mahalo, Anna Chang, for reserving the room for us.

Chef Gordon Lum arrived early to prepare his special island pork spareribs in black bean sauce and yummy chicken look funn. He quickly set up his portable steamer and huge wok on the lanai. As he demonstrated and cooked he shared many of his cooking tips...that some fat/oil is flavor, that when ordering 3 lbs. of spareribs, you will get 3.5 lbs., and that chicken boullion can be substituted for chicken broth. As he demonstrated, he welcomed many questions and responded in detail regarding the various sauces he used and even where to purchase fresh look funn and island pork spareribs on Kekaulika Mall. When Extraordinaire Gordon worked his wok, some us assisted him by adding the chicken, carrots and beans, rock salt and mushroom sauce, look funn, and bean sprouts. WOW...he was able to stir-fry a huge amount of chicken look funn in 7 minutes!

By 11:30 am we were ready to enjoy lunch!

Thank you President-Elect Trudy Ching for your blessings as we looked forward to the delicious prepared lunch including various pupu, and desserts.

Besides Gordon's black bean spareribs and chicken look funn, each of the ladies brought FABULOUS salads, pies, cakes, cookies, cracker pupu, ice tea, peanuts, crispy gau gee, sushi, mochi, mangoes, and many surprises to our Marvelous Lunch. Needless to say, we all had a grand time chatting, sharing, and enjoying a Delightful Lunch!

Before our happy event ended President Ruth Hirai thanked Gordon Lum with our ACUW Family Favorites Cookbook. A Restaurant Gift Certificate was also presented to him from the ladies for his generous time and lunch treat.

Much Appreciation to Gordon Lum and to our Charming Ladies for making this a Very Successful Cooking/Demo Lunch Event!

Also Xie xie, to those ladies who came early to prep and arrange the tables and to the ladies who stayed after lunch to assist in the cleanup. Enjoy the fun photos taken by Susan Lee!

We had a Wonderful Day with Great Team Work!!!
