Malaysia Kitchen for the World 2010

03-08 Malaysia Kitchen of the World
Malaysia, the country, kicked off a campaign today with the very official title of "Malaysia - Kitchen for the World 2010". We attended the inaugural lunch where a handful of chefs demonstrated some classic Malaysian dishes, my always favorite - the roti canai, some chicken satay, a curry laksa and the beef rendang. What we learned is that Malaysian food is incredibly ingredient intensive, not to mention labor intensive. I imagine that's what gives the food it's richness of flavor and balance of tastes. A lot of chances to brush up on your knowledge of Malaysian cuisine in the upcoming year. I know we will be.
