Chinese Cooking Demo in Coopers Supermarket


Well, today is Chinese New Year featuring the Year of the Rat. And, to celebrate, Coopers Supermarket in Valleyview, Kamloops, BC asked me to do Chinese cooking demos from noon until 6 pm. I cooked Chicken and Mushroom Chow Mein, Bok Choy in General Tao Sauce, Pork in Satay Sauce with Sui Choy and Zucchini in Black Bean Sauce. People came by to watch and got rewarded with food samples! I met acquaintances I hadn't seen in years...it was like homecoming! Thanks to Steve Maltman of Coopers for making it happen!

Industrial Photography at Highland Valley Copper, BC

February 5, 2008 was an exciting day as we headed for Highland Valley Copper near Logan Lake, BC. With me was Melodie Grabner of the Kamloops branch of the United Way. I was on assignment to help produce their annual report by photographing some of the donors (of the nearly $500,000 raised) in their working environment. It was wonderful being able to go through the entire plant and seeing some of the places the average plant tour doesn't see.

Chinese Cooking Demo in Kamloops


Helping Kent bring in the Year of the Rat in Kamloops early is the 3rd Kamloops Cub Pack on Tuesday, February 5, 2008. Kent demonstrated how to cook Chicken Strips in Noodles to an appreciative audience of hungry young men! Kent explained that noodles are symbolic of long life and are an important part of Chinese New Year. Kent also explained the Chinese Zodiac and how the 12 animal cycles came into existence.
