Asian Inspired Cooking...

I've been on a quest to cook some awesome Asian inspired soup lately. A while ago, I saw an episode of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" featuring a woman called the lunch lady. She is a super famous street vendor in Vietnam, who makes a different delicious soup everyday. She buys the freshest ingredients from the market on a daily basis and changes her menu depending on what's available. To learn more about the lunch lady, read this great article from Gastronomy. I'm going to do some more Goole research and then attempt to make something similar to one of her soups. Results to come.

On the same note, this weekend I'm planning on cooking a Korean chicken stew. My friend at work brought me a sample that she made (she is second generation Korean - parents came over from Korea), and it was fantastic. I bought my whole chicken at whole foods this evening, and dropped it in the brine so it will be ready for tomorrow. Pics to come.
