|Title: “BUDDHA’S DELIGHT”
Size: 18.75” W x 12.5” H (unframed) Available
Chinese long beans, leaks, baby bok choy, carrot, shitake mushrooms, all coarsely chopped with minced garlic, grated ginger, cilantro, salt and pepper. Sauté in sesame oil until tender. Pulse in a food processor with two egg whites and tablespoon of cornstarch. Then wrap in wonton wrappers and seal with egg whites. Steam for 10 to 12 minutes in bamboo steamer. Remove and dip in your favorite soy sauce (low sodium for me!) and you have experienced the most delicious pot sticker in your life…“Buddha’s delight.” Yours too I hope!
Acrylic and metallic paints accented with raised copper Chinese calligraphy on heavy watercolor paper, bordered with insets from a mid-1800’s Japanese grocer’s ledger of accounts, accented with four Chinese Song Dynasty (10th century) cash coins, affixed with melted religious wax collected from holy temples and monasteries, with outside panels of embossed “cloud” paper from Asia bathed in acrylic paints, then gilded, all mounted onto archival museum board.
