Aspiring Bakers # 29 Heirloom and Local Dialect Recipes (家传菜/籍贯菜)

Hello to all Aspiring Bakers Family members and members-to-be!
I'm hosting Aspiring Bakers #29!

很高兴有这个机会主持 Aspiring Bakers.. 希望大家能够踊跃参与并支持这次的主题~
I am very glad that I have the opportunity to host the Aspiring Bakers No. 29. Hope everyone of you will participate this theme and enjoy yourself.

这个月的主题是 "家传菜/籍贯菜" 
The theme for this month is Heirloom and Local Dialect Recipes. 

I am very hard working trying to do google translate.

家传菜 - dishes handed down from the older generations of the family; family tradition
籍贯菜 - dishes from your birth or origin/ native place (local dialect)

我一直在想我家有什么家传/籍贯菜~ 问了排骨,他是广东人,他告诉我,他也不懂叻~*晕*
I have been thinking what heirloom or local dialect recipes from my family. I asked "Pai Kuat", he is Cantonese and he told me he has no idea at all. *fainted*

老实说,我老妈子没有传下"家传菜/籍贯菜"给我..从小到大,她都不肯我到厨房帮忙. 可能是怕我越帮越忙吧~ 所以嘛,我的厨艺真的是“ma ma tei” .. 所以这次希望能够向妈妈讨教一下,让我家传菜在我的部落各亮相亮相~ 
To be honest, I really can't think of any dishes passed over from my mum. Since young, she didn't really want me to help her out in the Kitchen, maybe she worries that I am the trouble-maker. Therefore, my cooking skill is like "zero".. Hopefully, I can ask my mum to teach me this time so that I can show off a bit my cooking skill. 

我是客家人,所以记得小时候家里常常都会煮擂茶, 卤鸭,酿豆腐等等! 所以,任何一样籍贯菜肴 - 广东、福州、海南、客家、福建、兴化等等我们都期待~
I am Hakka, what I remembered since young were "Lui Cha", "Braised Duck" and "Stuffed tofu". Therefore, we are looking forward to see any dishes from the local dialects, such as Cantonese, Foochow, Hainanese, Hakka, Hokkien, Henghwa, etc.

现在是时候把你们家的家传/ 籍贯菜肴亮相了~ 希望大家可以跟我们分享你们家的食谱。我真的很期待着你们的参与和支持这个主题, 让我大开眼界~

  1. 好的。谢谢你。看看,想想有什么适合这个主题的。再上来和大家分享。 嘻嘻嘻。。。。。。

  2. I would love to participate this event but I'm actually quite flat out for Delia Smith, Cook like a Star this month. Hopefully, I can submit something at early Apr... fingers crossed!


  3. 嗨嗨。。。你好!请问如不是自家的籍贯菜也能参加吗?

    1. 可以,比如你不是海南人,也可以煮海南鸡饭。。

  4. interesting, is steam rice kuih accepted?

  5. will accept this at this stage as long as it is from Heirloom or local dialects.

    Bear in mind that Aspiring Bakers ever hosted the traditional kueh before (on October 2011). Hopefully no clash on that.. =)

  6. 很不好意思,近来都没参与Aspiring Bakers,希望这次不会在忘记!

  7. 一定是要自己的籍贯或者家传吗?拿别人食谱的家传菜可以吗? 比如从小家里是这样煮法的算吗? :)

    1. 我想可以吧,因为我不想有太多的 restrictions.但是更鼓励你可以煮出你家的家传菜哦~

  8. 我想问,籍贯菜肴,是否也包括福建面?

  9. Wowow~ Hakka dishes! I am a Hakka dish fan especially the abacus seeds and soon kueh :) Can't wait to see all the related recipes soon.
