Chinese Noodles - The Chinese invented the noodles over 4,000 years ago, yet the Chinese noodle dishes are held in relatively low esteem compared to the Italian pastas, Japanese ramens... with ramen bloggers noting minute differences in broths, texture of noodles and other minutia. I've paid upwards of $18 for a single serving of Italian pasta, yet in Chinatown, you could get a dish that will feed 3-4 people for 1/2 or even 1/4 the price. Even though other ethnic cuisines got their noodles from China. The Chinese cuisine uses many different kinds of noodles with many flavors, sauces, soups and more. So, I'm planning a series of noodle tasting events starting with several places in Chinatown. Watch for them starting next month. We will begin with soup noodles, the perfect dish for the cold winter days or nights. Join the LA Asian Foodies group if you want in on this future series of tasting events.

Darrell's Test Kitchen - My first attempt at making a squash soup... I used Alton Brown's recipe and the results was delicious and inexpensive. You can buy a winter Table Queen squash at Superior Grocers for 7lbs/$1.00. I pretty much followed his recipe using the Mexican creme fraiche instead of heavy cream. I used my blender as I don't have an immersion blender. I also used a bit more ginger than the recipe called for. Delicious! Cost less than $2 to serve 8.
