Food Gal’s Second Video: Extras From My Debut Cooking Demo at Macy’s Union Square

For those who enjoyed my first video — which recapped my cooking demo debut at Macy’s Union Square San Francisco on June 11, 2011 — here’s an “extras” reel to kick back with.

In this second video, you’ll get to know me a little better, as I tell you about my family, how I got my start in food writing, and how I became known as the Food Gal.

Find the complete recipe for the dish I cooked — “My Mom’s One and Only Tomato Beef Chow Mein” — here.

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

And watch the actual cooking demo video showing how to make the dish here.

    TigerFish: Not sure why you can’t access the videos on your computer. Very strange. Try going directly to the Vimeo site for my two videos:
