Chef Liang described the dishes in a variety of languages – in Cantonese with Eddie, in Mandarin with Mary (his friend and translator who joined us for dinner) and in Spanish with Claudia (a language he mastered while working in Mexico).
Deer meat is said to have properties that benefit blood circulation and clear complexion, but I never have to be sold on chowing down on the Bambi platter. We ended the meal with a medicinal soup meant to aid in digestion; it contained various roots and tubers and big chunks of what tasted like a cross between yucca root and a cord of firewood. I’m almost certain Chef Lupe was speaking to Eddie in Mandarin since he spoke to me in Cantonese and told me to translate it back to Eddie (who speaks Mandarin).

As for drinks, I'm devising a selection of agreeable liquors and mixers to be laid out in beakers and a variety of other interesting glass containers.

I've had a well-traveled old steamer trunk sitting in my living room for about a year just begging me to convert it from an anachronism into the swankest of retro conversions. Meant to be versatile and planet-friendly, the legs of this table nest inside each other and it ships without a top, so that it takes up less space, cutting the ecological impacts of transportation and making it easier to store when not in use. The four legs are designed in a way that they could accommodate any number of materials to serve as a tabletop, thus giving new life to a discarded tabletop or other salvaged building materials like an old door, or could make an elegant, modern table by using just a pane of glass. Anyone can stock a bar, but it takes a little effort and ingenuity to stock a bar with something nobody else has.
Media Lab at MIT, and while I don't know if I have the technical chops to cut it, I'm sure I've got the overall creativity and innovation to make a go of it.A  I'm most fascinated by the Computing Culture, Lifelong Kindergarden, and High-Low Tech.
NY Times, TheKitchn, Penny Plastic) seems to be throwing a dinner party for under $100, and I love the idea, but the next dinner party I'm throwing isfor Lunar New Year and I'm expecting 20-30 people.A  Entertaining 8 is great, but there is no way I can keep costs to $5 a head, is there? Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury, VT makes the most incredible apple cider in the world, which, amazingly enough, is made from just pressed Macintosh apples.A  Apple cider here on the west coast seems to be entirely comprised of lousy commercially produced apple juice, maybe with some cinnamon thrown in.
Grind apples into pulp: a new garbage disposal unit mounted to a board over a bucket would do the trick. Press the juice out of the pulp: I might pick up a used wine press, or else rig something up with clamps. While I was researching Japanese culinary culture and values on a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, a few colleagues and I were treated to a lecture and private tasting led by LGYKUGY, the president of the larges sake importer in North America. Bionade has a fascinating story.A  The owner of a small beer brewery in Bavaria believed that barley malt could make a good base for soda, as it does for beer, so he spent ten years doing off-hour experiments to find the right bacteria to ferment the malt into a soda that wouldn't turn to alcohol or vinegar. I felt as if I needed the ear buds used by representatives of the United Nations for translation, but there was enough English being bandied about for me to understand what was going on. The odd thing about Menu Item #5 was that cooked with leeks and an unusual cucumber-like vegetable called star melon, the deer mellowed out, losing its sometimes wild flavor.

Even with the ongoing world-wide hops shortage, my latest batch will cost me about $15-$20 for 5-gallons (60 bottles), which should suffice.

I recently had the opportunity of joining food personality Eddie Lin on a fact-finding mission to Los Angeles’ Hop Woo restaurant in Chinatown to dive beneath the pages of the English language menu and discover the secret pleasures of the Chinese and secret menus. The flesh was tender and moist and was by far the best venison dish I’ve eaten to date.
In fact, if you request something that they can’t make on the spot, Chef Liang will let you know when he can get the ingredients and invite you back to enjoy your fantasy meal.

The Chinese menu is just that – a small, Little Black Book of Chinese cuisine printed completely in that language.
As with many of the dishes presented that evening, the armadillo soup is said to have healing properties – it is reputed to benefit the kidneys and lower back.
The hair vegetable was only one of the components of the next dish, which featured oysters that had been dried three times in the sun prior to cooking. Chef Liang was kind enough to read items from the menu and present some of the more exotic entries in their naked glory.
The mound of oysters were sitting atop chunks of pork, capped with a large mushroom button and covered in a rich brown sauce, and although the hair vegetable didn’t offer a great deal of flavor, it dissolved delightfully on the tongue.
The evening began with a platter of BBQ chicken feet of Himalayan proportions (somewhere a genius entrepreneur is making a fortune selling avian wheelchairs). Prior to Menu Item #4’s arrival, there was much international discussion about kneecaps which was lost on me until a disk of crispy fried chicken knees were placed on the table. There were two sizes of the medallions with a slight variation in color; Chef Liang explained that this was due to the age difference in the donors. These were cleaned remarkably well (the nose never lies) and mixed with three kinds of mushroom (drumstick, straw and shitake) taking on their woodsy flavor. It only stands to reason that if you’re robbing Chicken Little of his mobility by lopping off his feet you might as well kneecap him while you’re down there. While not as tender as the dim sum variety (phoenix talons), they made up for the labor required to extricate the meat in flavor – they were lightly coated in a delicious sauce and tossed with peanuts, black beans, green onions and chopped chilis.
