Krissa Coleman column: Learn how to cook Chinese food

Do you love Chinese food? If so, we have a great program for you! On Feb. 21, at 5:30 p.m., chef and author, Peter Kwong will be joining us for a Chinese 101 wok cooking demonstration.

His recipes are easy and simple to follow, and so are the cooking procedures. Many times, his students would taste the foods that they made, and exclaimed, "My, this is the best I have yet tasted; and it is so easy and simple!" Why waste a lot of time searching for different ingredients, and more time in prepping and cooking? Peter's philosophy about eating is to share and have fun. Agree?

Please register for this program by calling the library at 715-749-3849 so we can be prepared to have enough food to sample.
