Martin Yan's Taste of Vietnam

One Saturday last October, my friend Sabrina invited me and a few other of our common friends to an intimate dinner with well-loved celebrity chef, Martin Yan.  It was to introduce his new show, Taste of Asia.  His latest show in AFC is currently airing with its first 26-episode series “Taste of Vietnam,” where he explores the history, landscapes and well-loved dishes of Vietnam.

During the intimate dinner, he did a live demonstration and prepared Asian-inspired dishes that were inspired by his TV series on Vietnam.

He also taught us how to make his famous Wok-seared Shaking Beef

Here's some of the food Chef Martin Yan prepared for us that night: Hot and Sour Pineapple Fish Soup, Trio of Seafood Fresh Rice Rolls with two Dipping Sauces and Chargrilled Chicken over a bed of mixed greens. 

He also entertained us with his impressive knife skills.
