Back when I was little, my grandmother would always use this special red yeast sauce to marinate all kinds of meat in preparation for Chinese New Year (We have an especially big family.) After moving to England, I started craving that special taste one day and had to ring back home to find out the secret of making the sauce.

記得小時候阿嬤總是會用這特製的紅麴醬 醃漬各種肉類以備過年時的不時之需(咱家的家族特別的大),來英之後有天突然憶起那特別的味道,趕緊打回台灣問那密方

The good news was that my auntie actually remembered being taught my grandma’s recipe and was able to send me the ingredients from Taiwan. After receiving it, it took me a few attempts but I was finally able to bring back that taste that has been long stuck in my distant childhood memory. Since then, I have been using this sauce whenever I am missing home, and of course, during special days and the festive season.

還好! 我家四有得到阿嬤的真傳給了我這秘方!收到從台灣來的材料後不敢怠慢的趕緊動手做,當然是經過了好幾次後才大功告成。

Today, I will be showing you how to slow cook chicken’s feet with our special sauce, in preparation for a party I have set up to treat my best friends.
