chefdance 2011 - Michael Chow

The famous Michael Chow of Mr. Chow restaurants shows up in style for his snazzy Monday night Chefdance dinner that was packed with celebrities. Everything about that night was fabulous, complete with Chinese style family platters of lobsters, filet mignon, drunken fish and even a live hand pulled noodle show.
The gorgeous Mimi Kim and Kenny Griswold present Michael Chow with the first ever Chefdance Legend Award. The crowd goes wild when Mr. Chow takes the mic to speak, showing off his impressive movie buffness.
Water Dumplings. So juicy, so delicate, so fabulous!  Fresh sole, pork.
Vegetarian noodles and water chesnut sauce.

Ma Mignon. Crunchy garlicky peppercorn crust, extra peppery sauce, omg.
Wheat Berries and Brown Rice, a la fried rice...? Unbelievable flavors and textures.
Cauliflower. Colors were spectacular. Classic thick and saucy.
Drunken Fish and Fungus. Beijing style, thick and saucy.
Hand Pulled Noodle show with cameras rolling. Like a cowboy lasso and sleight of hand magic show, starting with a blob of dough and turning into a million long noodle strands. So fast, so much skill, so old school. Mr. Chow's exec noodle chef pulls off a sick performance!
Main Lobster and Mr Chow Hand Pulled Noodles. Like Chinese wedding banquet style, platters and platters of bright orange lobsters flooded the room. Finger lickin'. And those noodles. Omg, those fresh hand pulled noodles.
Belvedere Dynasty - Chinese 5 spice, magnolia oolong, meyer lemon, Belvedere, cashew lollipop, pairing by Snake Oil Cocktail Co. This was too much, over the top, absolutely decadent, so intense, spectacular drink.
