Next up for our Eat Alberta 2017 session blog entries is “Chop Suey on the Prairies” and we are excited to announce that our session presenter will be Kitty Poon.
Kitty has over 30 years of experience cooking Chinese and Western food in Edmonton and attained her Journeyman Red Seal from NAIT Culinary School. She has cooked at The Creperie, Walden, various hotel restaurants and the Edmonton General Hospital café, Rendez-Vous.
Chinese restaurants have a strong presence in Alberta and the food has a very interesting history spanning all the way back to the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. At the session, participants will learn how a couple of Canadian-Asian favourites, Kung Pao Chicken and Chicken Spring Rolls.
Session participants will also get something a little extra, thanks to session sponsor Alberta Chicken Producers, as at the end of the session, each participant will get a cookbook and recipe card.
To take advantage of this great opportunity to learn more about Chinese food in Alberta, while getting some free stuff, make sure to pick “Chop Suey on the Prairies” as one of your sessions when you register for Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics.
