Food Gal’s First Video: My Debut Cooking Demo at Macy’s Union Square

For those who missed my debut cooking demo in person on June 11, 2011 at Macy’s Union Square San Francisco, please enjoy this abbreviated video of it.

My thanks to my husband, aka Meat Boy, who filmed this; and to Brett Yasukawa, a most talented Bay Area chef who also has mad skills as an editor, who helped put this video together.

Find the complete recipe for my late-Mom’s one and only tomato beef chow mein here.

See still photos from the demo, courtesy of Barry and Eva Jan, here.

And for those still hungry for more, here’s Part II, a fun little video of extras from the cooking demo.

Share and Enjoy

    Another great demo! I always enjoy watching your demos as much as I enjoy your daily postings on this site. Keep up the great work! I don’t suppose you will be coming out to Union Square in NYC by any chance or Macy’s in midtown Manhattan one day?
