A Little Quick Cooking

Sujo Cassidy (left) with Joan Morton, President of  Tweed Hort.
The
Tweed and District Horticultural Society
welcomed Sujo Bae Cassidy as the guest chef for the November  meeting. Sujo, a French trained chef has been
a resident of Tweed for 3 years.  What a delightful evening Sujo provided for
the members as she shared her wealth of cooking tips with the group as she
prepared a dish of garden veggies and noodles.
She
sauteed the freshly cut produce….carrots, spinach, shitake mushrooms, peppers
and daikon radishes in a little oil and salt. Next she mixed the veggies with
noodles and a variety of seasonings…the recipe will be emailed to the members
so they can try their culinary skills at home!
As
she was cooking, Sujo gave numerous tips to the audience
·      
Use noodles made with 100% sweet
potato starch…great for gluten free diets…cook the noodles in boiling water for
about 7 minutes….when you can “snap” a noodle, they are ready…overcooking turns
the noodles to mush!
·      
Ethnic products can be purchased at
Quinte Global Foods on Mineral
Drive in Belleville
·      
Using plastic gloves for mixing…this
ensures that that the seasonings are well mixed throughout
·      
Use your hands clad in the “famous
plastic gloves” to measure a “handful”…saves on dish washing!!!
·      
100% rice brand oil is great to use
for cooking
 Sujo
spent time demonstrating the use of a tool called the “Mandolin”….great to
shred veggies and a real time saver. In fact one member of the audience
admitted that she had one at home in the original box in her kitchen cupboard…after
seeing the demo, she said that she will definitely be using the tool!
 Members and
guests were invited to sample the vegetable/noodle dish…using either forks or
chop sticks! By the look of the empty pan, the dish was certainly a hit with
the members present!
