Kachangma & Mee Suah
22ND & 27Th AUGUST, 2016: 'Hungry for Culture' participants came to learn, cook, taste and tapao (takeaway) their new culinary knowledge. Two "aunties", confirmed confinement food experts, helped KINO give birth (pun intended) to this series of confinement foods of Sarawak.For 'Aunty' Lina Leong, who grows her own kachangma plants to be dried and bottled, cooking the Hakka Kachangma is a must for confinement. A definite plus for her daughter Julie, who has never cooked any confinement food before simply because "Mom cooks it". A perfect participant!'Aunty' Ivy Ngui starts out with a very big smile saying "I don't really like cooking..." but thanks to her animated explainations and demonstrations, participants whipped out the famous Foochow Mee Suah and Chicken Ang Chow. Follow the 'aunty power' leaders is the name of the game here!
