Chinese appetizers

pâté chinois | Apr 15, 2008 10:39 AM

My bookclub is meeting this Friday after work and I am in charge of appetizers. We are doing a Chinese theme as one of us is Chinese and getting married in May. Her wedding reception is a traditional Chinese banquet and we are going to taste test wines for the reception.

I have never been to a Chinese wedding, so I don't know what will be on the menu, but I do want to make something - as opposed to doing Chinese take-out. Living in Toronto, I have very easy access to Chinese ingredients. I do not want to deep fry anything.

I will be working all day on Friday, and will have about 30 minutes at home to prepare/finish preparing the appetizers. I can start preparing them on Thursday night, though. And I will be travelling across town (Toronto) just around the time rush hour ends, so that's about 45-60 minutes. I would prefer not to have to do more to the dish than a slight reheating once I get to her place.

Can someone recommend a dish? recipe? Thanks!
