I think it would be neat to work in a chinese restaurant so I can learn about chinese culture, how to cook chinese foods, and to talk to the people.
Can anyone tell me anything I should know when I ask for a job? Is there anything I should or shouldn’t do? What types of clothes should I wear? Is there anything else I should know?
sure…try panda express

How many choices is good to have at a food outlet selling hot food of a particular cuisine e.g.Chinese?
I am setting up a new business which sells hot Carribean food at lunch time during Monday – Friday. I would like to offer a good selection of choices but also want to make sure it is not too many choices which may overwhelm and confuse the customers. Ideally my business plan is to make 4 – 6 choices which people will find fast,authentic and healthy and will continue to come back at least once every week. Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks
4-6 sounds about right to start with. You don’t want to get overwhelmed with too many dishes to start with. Once you get up and running, you can take your cues from your customers, whether they’re happy with the menu or if they’d rather see more variety.

It rained for several days straight here in southern California. there comes a time in every mans life where a sunshine prone city covered in water makes you have to strip down to your boxerbriefs and roll around in the freezing cold wetness to give you the strength to venture out into the concrete wilderness and retrieve food from China and yogurt from Froze-a.

Obviously the fried fast foods are bad for you but I hear that the oils and fats in chinese food pack upwards of 900 calories and isn’t the rice and lo mein noodles loaded with carbs?
So which one is worse for you if you want to grab something fast and good for lunch?
My doctor says the three biggest food killers American’s eat are:
1. Fried Chicken
2. Potato Chips
3. French Fries
So I would say your best bet is to get some chinese food, but avoid any dish that contains breaded fried chicken.

At a local Chinese restaurant, a desert cake is served on the buffet. It is called "lover’s flower" and consists of a soft moist cake in a spring roll skin cup (formed by putting spring roll wraper in a cupcake tin). I would love to have the recipe for the cake portion of this desert, but have been unable to find it….can anyone help?
This is the only one i could find:
Steamed Chinese Cake:
1 1/4 cups white sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
Arrange a large bamboo steamer or a large vegetable steamer over simmering water.
Make sure it is large enough to hold the baking pan.
Line a 9 inch square pan with waxed paper.
Separate the eggs.
Place the yolks in a large bowl along with the sugar and water.
Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture has increased about three times in volume.
Whisk together the flour and the baking powder; sift this over the egg mixture, and fold in gently.
Blend in the extract.
Whip the egg whites in a clean bowl to stiff, not dry, peaks.
Fold into yolk base.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and smooth out to edges.
Rap the pan on the counter to get rid of large air bubbles.
Place the pan into the steamer.
Cover the top of the steamer with a kitchen towel, and place the lid on top; the towel will absorb any steam that collects on top from dripping onto the cake.
Steam for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack.
Dust with confectioner’s sugar.
