We at West Point Grey Baptist Church are delighted  to host a session of CCC which focuses on marriage as we have the good fortune of having several renowned marriage relationship leaders available:

Peter was a chef during the 1980s at one of the earliest 5-star hotels in Nanjing, China. In the 1990s he went abroad to study in Japan, learning the different schools of Japanese cuisine and different styles of Japanese cooking. In 2001, he immigrated to Vancouver, establishing six Japanese cuisine restaurants: Sakura Sushi, Akira Sushi, Irigawa Sushi, and Jun Sushi. Peter is also a council member of the China Master Chef Association (CMCA). He pioneered the concept of the masterclass when he began to teach people in China Japanese cuisine. He also heads the Department of Japanese Cuisine at Winston College. Currently he has a lot on his plate: director of Easy Cooking Enterprise as well as having founded the Peter Fusion Cooking Studio. His masterclasses are pulling in people from all over Greater Vancouver while getting amazing reviews. These masterclasses are focused around his experience in running restaurants as well as his nuanced cooking techniques.  While spreading his knowledge in Vancouver Peter continues to teach classes in China. Although his knowledge in Japanese cuisine is extensive, he specializes most in Kaiseki Cuisine (which means “traditional multi-course Japanese dinner).

Stuffed tofu

Stuffed tofu

1. Stuffed Tofu

A famous dish of the Kakka cuisine, rich in nutrients, tender and smooth with mouthwatering aroma. It’s a must have dish during the holidays.

The legend of Kakka stuffed tofu:
Legend has it that the stuffed tofu originated from the dumplings in the north. Because the Lingnan region produces less wheat, the Kakka settlers replaced the flour with tofu and stuffed it with meat. Because of its delicious taste, it has become a signature of Kakka cuisine.

There is another legend: A long time ago, there were two good brothers who could not decide on what to order. One wanted to eat pork and another wanted Tofu. Thinking on his feet, the chef came up with a way to make the best of both worlds, producing the stuffed tofu.

Abacus beads

Abacus beads

2. Abacus Beads

A well-known traditional snack from Kakka. Made from tapioca starch and formed into the shape of the abacus beads. It has a smooth and chewy texture. When stir-fried with meat and veggies, it can be a yummy snack or even a main dish.
