I asked Collin to make Won Ton Soup, as I watched a TV show. He used Won Ton wrapper to make dumpling. The filling included many ingredients, including ground ginger. He also added some chopped veggies in the soup.

The broth was just right, not too salty not too watery, and the taste was so good.

If he can make for me, I don’t need to eat them out. 🙂

I saw fried dumpling ($3.50 for 6) at T&T supermarket in Metrotown and bought them. I didn’t know how the taste was like, so I asked to mix two kinds: chicken and pork.

Chicken ones taste more similar to Japanese Gyoza taste.

Collin and I sometimes watch the TV show called Chopped. And one day, I asked him what if I choose ingredients in a mystery box and you cook. He said “yeah!” Well, there is no one chopped, though.

This is the 5th challenge. I bought these ingredients. He bought some accompaniments.

Ingredients for Appetizer:

  • Smoked Salmon, and
  • Fennel, and
  • Ciabatta

Ingredients for Main dish:

  • Ground Pork and Beef, and
  • Broccolini, and
  • Clamato Juice (A small can that sits for long time)

Both need to be cooked within one hour. He can use whatever in cupboard or fridge.


Here are outcomes of his cooking.

Appetizer: Open faced ciabatta with onion fennel relish, smoked salmon lox, goat cheese and lemon

Fennel was cooked slowly for long time with onions so that it was soft and sweet. I think dripping some lemon juice on smoked salmon would make taste better.

Main dish: Rotini with Clamato tomato sauce, organic broccolini, fontina cheese and meatballs

Tomato sauce was just right with slight spiciness, it added to a pan for meatballs a little by little so that meatballs were tasty. Cheese on top wasn’t covered (or melted) well. I didn’t taste Clamato, but was the spiciness coming from the juice?


Verdict: He survived! I will give him a harder challenge next time. 😛 Oh, what is he going to do with the full of tomato sauce in the pot?!
