  29. If Yan Can Cook, Do You Think I can?

  30. Last saturday was a very exciting day for me. Fancy me, meeting Chef Martin Yan in person. He was in town giving a cooking demo and i get to go to see him cook live. I really enjoyed the demo as he was so good with the knife, a real pro, I think i will have to be reincarnated several times before i can come to his level - especially how he garnished a dish. I tried and here were my results - what do you all think, can i garnish or cook like Yan?
