lee kum kee competition

i saw an advert by leekumkee, in the time out free magazine today; it is to link it to the new kungfu panda movie 3. that movie has come out in america during the superbowl.the trailer made me laugh. that mention of ‘master chicken’ at the end, just got me laughing and couldn’t stop… the cartoons are beautifully drawn and have many funny jokes that are adult related too. i saw the previous two on tv not in the cinema, and even on my tv screen, it looked fabulous. 

the competition gives4 winners a chance to win a trip to brussels, madrid, edinburgh, to watch the pandas there. plus u get to win the set of 4 noodle bowls, which i much like, and prefer to the city trips. haha. i bought a leekumkee sesame oil recently. from tesco of all places. they were selling it for £2 , normally in chinatown they are like £2.80 for a 207ml bottle.

i use the sesame oil quite a lot in my cooking. just a dash of it will do , added to the final stage of the cooking. and it perks it up no end. i have used this bottle, and it is very good. very authentic, with that intense flavour. i have tried other supermarket oils  , labelled toasted sesame oil, and it is not so good. so dont buy any that are toasted. 

i have read some people  tell u to use it for stir frying, in liew of vegetable oil. that i think is a mistake, sesame oil is not very good when heated too high, as in frying… it gets burnt easily with high temperatures. but add just a dash to the vegetable oil, and it gives it a nice aroma.
