When the people had agreed about a type of food, the next step is to find possible restaurants that have that kind of dishes.


After you have found a possible restaurant, check your budget and discard the restaurants that you can’t pay.


When you have the options after discarding, select a restaurant that is closer to your address or the restaurants with better locations.


After selecting the restaurant with a better location, select the one that you will like more, the one with the best environment and decoration.

Chef Anderson: The childhood of the kids in common is playing some sports, drawing or reading; and mine was shaking all the sauce that were in the kitchen of my house, I loved to play with the recipients, read recipes and taste foods.

Makiyo: I think that it relates so much to the ingredients that I use for sushi. As the phrase of the professional chef said: “The seventy percent of your dishes depend on

the ingredients and the rest on the chef� so that’s why I am so strict on chosen fishes and rice. I supervised every single ingredient that I use.

Interview by Jing Wu

Ask: You are a Thai, why are you known as a Chinese cooker?

Guest: Ken Hom

Ken: Well, people always confuse me as a Chinese, because both countries are located in Asia, so we are just similar like each other. China is a known country, but not many people know about Thailand. Both countries have similar dishes, so it’s not big deal if I am known like a Chinese cooker.

Ask: So these foods use the same ingredients to prepare?

When Five Forks met with Ken Hom he was sitting at his usual table at the Dorchester. He stays at the hotel every time he comes to London, and it's a good fit - calm, relaxed, quiet, yet welcoming. Now based in Thailand, Ken was in town to help celebrate the re-launch of his most celebrated work Chinese Cookery – the multi-million selling culinary tome first published 25 years ago.

Ken: I would say a yes. The ingredients are the same but the cooking techniques are different and the tastes have a big difference in the flavor.

Ask: Who was your inspiration to win the Best Chef Award?

Ken: Of course is my wife, she is an amazing woman. She is a Chinese and that’s why I decided to involve to the Chinese cuisine. She likes very much what I cook, and she enjoyed the dishes I made for her. Every time she has eaten a delicious dish she smiles like a flower. I have fallen in love with her smile.

Ask: Do you like more Chinese food or Thai food?

Ken: Honestly, I like more the Chinese one, because I don’t like that much the flavor of the Thai food. The Chinese food is characterized of the salty taste and the Thai one is more chili and sour flavor.

Ask: Will you continue participating on the next Best Chef Award?

Ken: No, because I should leave this opportunity to the Youngers to support them continue their passion on cook. And I am on the age to retire.

Le pettite We All have a place we love to go, yesterday I was in Mexicali in "le pettite " . This is a very interesting Italian/French bar and restaurant, it is different, a unique place. They serve many delicious cocktails as well as other drinks. My favorite was pineapple with strawberry juice. The food is excellent, especially the classic fettuccine and house baguette, Le pettite baguette. Both meals and drinks are, at a good price considering the amount of tasty and succulent food they serve, the quality and service that this restaurant bar provides. The place is decorated with a Paris style with and a bit of Italian, including a small Eiffel Tower with a contemporary touch yet old . The atmosphere is very nice and there is French classical music playing inside the restaurant, also the have a person singing superb.

The taste of memories We all have some things that brings us back to our past, some are a tees, vestige or other clothing , some other mansard , smell or even a person ; but unmistakable something that reminds us of past times is to eat a special dish. Everyone at some point in their lives have been exposed to a meal that reminds them of something , either to their childhood when they ate grandma’s food or that time when they got sick and they got very spoiled with delicious dishes . Some memories when you first try a saucer can be of much happiness either because it was the time you declared to a certain person in a restaurant or because something happened and you met the love of your life. Also to try a meal may cause nostalgia for example when eating something you used to only eat with that special person who has died, you can also remember something very funny as when you used to mash the potatoes from school to start a food war, you ended up all dirty but you turned around laughing together with your friends. When you grow up there will always be a special meal that reminds you of those nights you ate with your parents and maybe at that time you did not want to eat it or maybe it was your favorite food in your childhood, over the years your life changes but food always tastes the same and it will still make you remember things of the past, as each bite is part of your life.
