Chinese New Year with Chef Kelly

  • Pin It
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to a small women's networking event at the Los Angeles home of Linda Press. Linda, who owns a boutique public relations agency, invited her friend Chef Kelly to make a Chinese New Year celebration lunch for the group and show us how to make a few of the dishes. I hope you enjoy these images from the day. For recipes, see Chef Kelly's blog.

The day's menu

Stir-fried vegetables, including baby bok choy (my favorite!)

I made dumplings for lunch today. It certainly never crossed my mind to fill them with elk! Thanks for an informative, fun blog post :)
