We have a new Ayi (home helper/babysitter) started at last week. She also helps me cook lunch. She is afraid I would not like her taste. So far she has cooked one dish per day. It is all Suzhou style Chinese fry food which tastes a little bit sweet.
I normally donâ€™t like to do deep-fry, because it is messy. We have a Teflon pan and wok. I use only a bit of oil to cook. In my kitchen, a glass bottle of 500ml olive oil will last for half year. Our new Ayi finished our half year supply for a week and she bought a giant size of Arawana brand veggie oil. Arawana brand oil has a gold Koi looking fish on red package. I see it at every Chinese kitchen. I donâ€™t know if I can get used to see the fish on my kitchen counter.
