The Taste: Tuesday at 8|7c on ABC

Hi all!
How excited am I that there is a fellow Laotian on The Taste!  If you haven't seen it, The Taste is a competition show on ABC where teams of professional and amateur cooks try to create the best dish.  The judges are Anthony Bourdain, Ludo Lefebvre, Nigella Lawson & Brian Malarkey. They blind taste each person's dish and decide if they stayed or not.  Anthony Bourdain and his team are my favorite, I love him and I love
Uno Immanivong - Dallas, TX

She is an all around food lover and I am a little biased because she's a mom and Laotian!  For her first dish she made laap gai, a Lao dish made of minced chicken, shallots, fish sauce, herbs, etc.  Every family has their own recipe.  
Last week's episode was Dairing Pairings, all about wine.  I'm not a wine person but it was interesting to watch. I wouldn't know what to pair with what but I'd love to know how to cook with it. 
It's interesting to watch the home cooks and the 'pros' go at it.  I'm very impressed with the home cooks and how they've held their own.  It's inspiring to watch, it makes you confident to go in the kitchen and experiment.  I mean, I am definitely going to try to make some fried chicken skin. Yum!
