Colorado Public Television Celebrates Beijing Olympics with Weekday Chinese Cooking Show Weekdays throughout August
DENVER – In celebration of the Olympics, “Martin Yan’s China,” a Chinese cooking program on Colorado Public Television, will be shown every weekday at 4 p.m. during the month of August as part of KBDI-Channel 12’s “Spotlight on China.”
In each episode, Chef Yan will take viewers on culinary travel adventures through China, exploring the Mongol-inspired flavors of the North, the Cantonese seafood of the South, the fiery Szechuan meals of the West and the delicious Shanghai specialties of the East. With journeys to historic destinations, ancient streets, marketplaces and nature preserves, Yan provides viewers unprecedented access to China and its people.
Each episode ends with Yan taking recipes back to his kitchen where he demonstrates how the dishes are prepared.
In the August 1 episode, Yan starts the month by taking viewers to a traditional Spring Festival parade that is being held for the first time in 60 years in the town of Long Jian. He also will visit the garden of a Feng Shui master, walk through a classic southern Chinese private garden-turned-park and sample milk custard. In his kitchen, Yan will demonstrate making wok-braised jumbo shrimp and golden comfort soup.
Another Chinese cooking show, “Simply Ming,” airs Fridays at 3 p.m. Chef Ming demonstrates simple one-pot dishes with special China episodes scheduled in August. He will pair sesame oil and balsamic vinegar to prepare a half dozen appetizing and distinctive dishes
