Home Since the Holidays
So we canceled our plans for March break. We did what we were supposed to do. How did we get here? As time went on we watched people empty the shelves for tollet paper, then dried pasta, canned sauce, the Ramen packs from our university days and the macaroni and cheese. Soooo.....now three weeks later what shall we do?The mayor and premier said we are in for a bit of a long haul. We decided as a family after the toilet paper hunt that we would make the best of it. It reminded me of the Anthony Bourdain episode where he met the two french chefs he in Quebec, whether they were putting him on or they were for real, they made a point of only eating fine french cuisine everywhere they went, ice fishing or a local street hickey game. They were on a lake and they got out a white table cloth, the best wine and everything. That stuck in my mind. So the first week my husband and I for no reason at all made a huge turkey feast. This was followed up by a fantastic sushi spread that the kids made. Everyone learned how to roll sushi and get creative with unagi, cucumber, avocado. Japanese sticky rice was not that hard after all. Last week, we had Korean hotpot at home. Then it was slow roasted barbeque ribs. You're stuck eating at home. Why not try new recipes and make the best of it? Years from now like my mother's memories from WWII, we will look back and remember the family dinners that were make extra special because we had to stay home to save each other.

The Lum Family
My parents were part of the legacy of Lichee Gardens. Food has always fascinated me. My dad always told me to never serve any food that you wouldn't eat yourself. I wanted to bring back the nostalgia of yesteryear, classic food that we knew as a child.
