I had the great pleasure of doing a live segment on Good Day Sacramento this morning on the topic of “Noodle Know How.” After waking up super early to drive out to Sacramento, we arrived bright and early at the studio and got to watch the behind the scenes action. I had such a blast doing the short segment with Tina and can proudly say I’ve done my first live appearance on tv.
Below are the noodles covered on the show as well a link to the video of my segment!! Hope you enjoy watching it! And Thank you Tina Machucha for having me this morning.

Noodle Know How:
1. Fresh Flat Rice Noodles (Comes fresh out of the package and can be bought at a local Asian Market). Simply stir fry directly in a pan with oil, a bit of water and your pickings of vegetables and sauces. This is the one I demo-ed on the segment and it’s called the Shrimp Chow Fun.
2. Fresh wheat noodles. Boil until soft if it comes in raw form and run under cold water or serve directly out of package if it’s been pre boiled and sealed in a package as is. Toss with sesame sauce or peanut sauce to make a great cold noodle salad and add your favorite veggies and proteins to it. Also works great as chow mein (as long as you boil it first if it’s in raw form or stir fry out of the package if it’s been pre boiled and sealed in a package.
3. Dry Rice Noodles (Thin vermicilli noodles) These noodles MUST be soaked in cold water for at least 30 minutes. If you don’t soak the noodles and boil directly, the noodles will be soft on the outside and super hard on the inside. It will ruin your noodles. After you soak it for 30 mins or more, you can boil in a hot water for 30 seconds to 1 min and serve immediately. Toss with your favorite sauces or run it under cold water and toss with sesame oil and your favorite sauces to make a cold vermicilli noodle salad.
4. Finally the dry egg noodles. These noodles are best served as a noodle soup. Simply boil for 4-6 minutes and serve with your choice of broth (chicken, beef or veggie) and top with your favorite toppings.
All these dishes can be found at Fang restaurant located in SOMA, San Francisco or you can scroll through my recipes on my blog for other fun noodle recipes.
