Follow me through Film & T.V. Grad School in Beijing
Congratulations Chef Danielle…
It was a cold Tuesday night in Lang Fang, Hebei (a city just outside of Beijing). I was lying in bed after a long day of dishwashing (more about that in later posts). Should I try to do some work? Should I watch a TV series on Baidu? Should I go to sleep? Sleep won, as it often does, but out of sheer boredom, I decided to check my email first to see whether anyone from the family had emailed me, or what goods people were peddling to me in their ads. Then I saw this email subject:
“Danielle Congratulation !!!!!!”
It was an email from one of the other contestants in the cooking competition congratulating me. My heart started racing as I read his email…”But how did he know that I won?” I scrolled down a bit more and saw this email from the organiser of the competition:
it is my great pleasure to announce Chef Danielle as the winner of our first Kitchen Heritage.
Danielle sold a total of 11 portions.
Congratulations! Please do let me know when you are able to come to our hotel and receive your grand prize!
Our hotel will donate 5% of the total revenue to our IHG Project Hope (RMB 280.40 RMB).
We are planning a second Kitchen Heritage early next year. I hope to see you all again soon. I would like to give it a direction this time, maybe Asian dishes or German food? What do you think? Any suggestions?
So I won, and Jamaican Escovitch Fish with Rice and Peas will be on the Crowne Plaza Beijing International Airport’s menu for at least six (6) months. And as I said in my WeChat post, Thank you God for the big and little things that make life interesting
