Finally, my aunt remarked, “I wonder what’s taking so long for them,” and my uncle sighed. Before my uncle could even reply back to my aunt, the kitchen door popped open a bit and a cat came streaking out howling and roaring like a tiger followed immediately by the Chinese cook waving a big knife.
Of course, nothing is ever the way it seems. In truth, there had simply been a delay in preparing the food, because the staff cat grabbed a piece of chicken that was being prepared. It fell on the floor and the cat took off with it followed by the cook.
The cook was kind enough to pose with the cat in his arms, the big knife in his hand, and my aunt and uncle on either side of him for a photo. A legendary photo that still hangs our walls. You can also bring the legendary flavours of Ma Po Tofu and Kung Pao Chicken to your home without the cat part off course if you write to our Chef Varun Arora firstname.lastname@example.org
