Master Chef, here we come

This afternoon, the kitchen was in full action! Yvonne with Michelle, then helped also by Jiusi, Katia, Runa, prepared a fabulous Chinese menu for the Master Chef House Competition: fried and steamed dumplings as a starter, followed by sweet and sour pork, green tea ice cream. The first two courses were served on golden dishes, inside a leaf of Chinese cabbage – simple, classy and original!

There are some photos of the cooking process… During the presentation to the Jury Of Four (Mr Usher, Mme Salamin, Mr. Romolo and Mr. Leticia) we were all so busy that we did not use the phone or the camera at all!

Chinese dinner

Here begins our long season of tasty adventures! One of the advantages of living in an international community is… World Cuisine! Thanks to our Dining Hall Committee and to many great and committed boarders who dedicate their time and cooking skills, we are able to taste amazing dishes from all corners of the planet.

Last Wednesday we had a fabulous Chinese Dinner!

And here are some photos of our beautiful Ecureuil cooks and helpers, Eileen and Vera, with some of their friends behind the kitchen counter. Thank you!

Chinese cooking night

Girls of Meritas are not only good at studying but also at cooking.

Last week me and my roommate Dina decided to try to prepare something Chinese as it got really popular. In Migro which is nearby we bought Basmati rice, found very interesting receipts in the internet and occupied the kitchen for almost an hour.

The taste of our “hand-made” food was quite specific, but still we liked it. That was a nice way to spend some time together and to put the level of cooking a bit higher.

Next week we are planning to prepare something Russian, as some of us really miss Russian borsh!
