Had a great day cooking with my Laotian friend today. She showed me how to make wonton soup, and sushi. Sushi was good but, Owww. The wasbi literally took my breath away. My eyes were crying and my nostils were burning. Yow. Next taste I did not put so much of the wasabi sauce on the sushi. Much better. Her sister came over with quite a delicacy. It was .. gulp..... chicken feet. It looked pretty bad. Gulp. I had to be polite and try. The flavor was very delicious. But the texture was........ Gulp..... bones and grizzly skin. I had a few of the delectable tidbits and then went back to eating my lovely wonton soup. The wonton soup was my favorite. I hope to perfect this dish and cook it for my family. As well as the spring rolls that she showed me how to make a while back. I 'm really big on texture in my food. If it is not crunchy then I am not a fan. The chicken feet were not quite the texture that my palate was looking for. But like I said the flavor was very delicious. My friend La had her sisters and sister in-law there too. And of course all the husbands came as well. They were very kind and I did not feel so uncomfortable with them talking in the language of Laos. They did spend time explaining what they were saying so it was not so bad.

I would love to learn to cook ethnic foods directly from a person of that origin. Sounds like a great day but I'm with you on the chicken feet. ick.

Must have been quite an experience for you eating chicken-feet soup.

I can never touch anything remotely as chicken feet soup. This coming from an Asian. You will never want to see cow's eyes or ox's tail soup. Just thinking about it makes me queasy.

You're a nice obliging person. I have to absolutely turn somebody down while squirming uncontrollably doing that unfortunately. I hope I do not have to do that to anybody soon.

Have a good weekend.

Those are chicken feet. Back here in our Country they call "Adidas". People go crazy with when it's barbecued.
