Chinese Food Culture

Lucky Clovers Youngers Project Report

Lucky Clovers ClubOur project for this upcoming year is learning about foods from different cultures. Today at our meeting (9/9/18), Aunty Kathy and Kaitlin Kitagawa taught us how to make Crispy Gau Gee and Almond Cookies. Another name for Crispy Gau Gee is Won Ton.

First we made the mix and the seasoning to put in the “Gau Gee Pi,” which is also known as the wrapper. We mixed ground pork, water chestnuts, dry shiitake mushrooms, green onions, eggs, cornstarch, oyster sauce, sesame oil, sugar, shoyu, salt, and pepper. After that, we put one tablespoon of the mix into the pi, wet the edges so the sides would stick, and folded it into a rectangle. We then fried them until they reached a golden brown.

To make the almond cookies, we rolled the dough into little balls, pressed them down with a cup, then, using a chopstick, we put a little red dot in the center and baked them.

Everything was so yummy! We love Chinese food!
