I'll give out a tip every Sunday...take it or leave it!
Variety is the Spice of Life
This week's tip will keep with the recent Asian theme. One of my absolute favorite culinary activities is checking out an Asian market. I am fortunate to live in Houston because we have so many good ones. I recently checked out Ranch Market on I-10. It was okay, but to me it doesn't get better than Super H Mart on Blalock. Great selection and not so large that you'll get lost.
My tip is this: If you enjoy trying your hand at a new cuisine such as Asian cooking...go to an authentic market, not aisle 8 in Kroger's. And when you're at a place like H Mart, try a few new things each time. Today I picked up some new udon noodles. Even if you strikeout a few times, it's better than not trying something different.
