Chef Will has now done two events at my home. The first one was a gift from our new home builder. We were so delighted with the experience that we had him cater for our cocktail party last month. The food was delicious. Chef Will is a joy to work with and he certainly knows how to blend flavors to make delightful dishes. We would truly recommend him for your fun culinary occasions. He is the best at what he does and is very passionate about it !
Our next guest hosted tour is on Sunday Sept 16 and will be hosted by Michael Shum. We will be touring the exotic flavors of Houston's Chinatown. At $75/pp. All food and non-alcoholic drinks included. We will meet at a central location in Chinatown and be walking very short distances between locations.
PM or email to reserve your spot!!

Michael Shum (Bio)
Michael moved here here over 21 years ago from Malaysia. He was open to exploring different cuisines at a young age. He enjoys and is part of the wonderful diversity that has helped reshape our city and make huge progress in it's culinary development and creativity. He loves to randomly go into any restaurant, especially cuisine that he's not familiar with, to learn about food and culture of that particular cuisine. Michael states "I'm passionate about empowering people to venture into Chinatown and explore for themselves the rich, eclectic, and abundance offerings of authentic regional Chinese cuisine. To me, food is the best excuse or reason to get people together, break bread and fellowship. Professionally, I've been in the insurance and financial industry over 15 years, after graduating from UofH as an accounting major. I enjoy helping clients, whom I regard as friends, plan for their future and achieving their life goals. Many of my clients are restaurant owners who like to repay my professional service with delicious food and wonderful hospitality."

In the " Houston foodie world" Michael's knowledge of Chinatown has garnered him the nickname "The Honorary Mayor of Chinatown"!!
This tour will be an amazing experience both for you and your tastbuds!

What an AMAZING food tour hosted by Houston’s biggest fan & supporter local attorney John Nechman. His deep love for our city guided the way and his historical commentary was full of insightful knowledge. Everyone was extremely entertained and provided an extensive list of restaurants that they need to try.
We started off the tour at at John’s law offices were everyone enjoyed Houston based foods and drinks. Included were cheeses from Houston Dairy Maids, Antoines Chow Chow/local jams & jellies, chocolates by Xocolla, Yaupon derived Cassina tea by Wild South Tea and wine by Haak Vinyards.
We then toured Alameda and Navagation Blvd to our first stop where everyone cooled down with some strawberry ice cream at Magnolia’s Ice Cream Shop.
We then were treated to the regionally inspired cuisine of Chris Shepherd at UB Preserv. Included were Smoked Boudin Siu Mai, Crispy Rice Salad, Curried Fish Balls and Stuffed Texas Heritage Chicken.
Lastly but by no means in the least was a mandatory visit to Chef Kaiser Lashkari at Himalaya Restaurant for a taste of his wonderful Indo/Paki/American fusion dishes like Chicken & Dumplings, Chickpea Fried Chicken, Lamb Quesadillas, Curried Fish & Mango Tres Leches Cake.
It was a WONDERFUL tour and I hope you will join us soon for either a private tour with your own group or on one of our hosted tours by local celebrities, foodies, Chefs and personalties.
Our next hosted tour is by the “Honorary Mayor” of Chinatown Michael Shum who will be showing guests some wonderful asian delights in Houston’s Chinatown on Sunday Sept 16.

Turtle Soup Recipe (Brennan’s Nola)

Ingredients

1.5 gallons chicken stock

5 pounds turtle meat, thoroughly rinsed (or substitute veal or alligator meat)

¾ cup canola oil

¾ cup all-purpose flour

1½ cups chopped onion

1½ cups chopped celery

¼ cup chopped garlic

1 (28-ounce) can San Marzano tomatoes, chopped

3 bay leaves

3 sprigs thyme

1 sprig basil

1 teaspoon cumin

1½ teaspoons dry mustard

1½ teaspoons black pepper

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 tablespoon salt

2 cups sherry

¼ cup chopped parsley

Zest and juice of 2 lemons

½ pound fresh spinach

6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and finely chopped

Directions

In large stockpot, bring chicken stock and turtle meat to a low simmer and cook turtle meat for 1 hour, making sure to skim away impurities that rise to surface.
In a large stockpot over medium heat, heat oil and whisk in flour. Whisk continually until roux is deep brown in color. Carefully add onion, celery, and garlic to roux, stirring with a wooden spoon until vegetables are cooked through. Whisk reserved chicken stock and tomatoes slowly into roux, being sure to avoid lumps.
Tie bay leaves, thyme, and basil together with kitchen twine and add to soup. Add spices, sherry, parsley, lemon juice and zest, and spinach. Bring to a slow simmer and cook for about 45 minutes, skimming away oil and other impurities that rise to surface as it cooks. Ladle soup into bowls, top with egg, and garnish with more sherry if desired.
