China has an old say:“Food is the livelihood of people.” We need food everyday, how can we make cooking more fun and meaningful, that requires some knowledge and skills. I also believe that food has life when it’s raw or even if it has been cooked. The life shows through it’s color, aroma, and taste. Whenever we smell delicious food or see plates of fresh, colorful mouthwatering dishes in front of us , we just naturally feel an urge and appetite. Of course cooking techniques play a very important role well as which ingredients are used and how fresh they are.

Next, I want to show you how to make a spicy basil sauce.

1 lb purple basil leaves
25 pieces of red Thai chili peppers
3 cloves of garlic
1 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of ground black peppers

Clean and wash basil and Thai chili peppers. Let dry or pat dry with paper towel. Coarsely chop the basil and the red Thai chili peppers. Mince garlic. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowel. Mix well. Store the sauce in an airtight container and refrigerate.
You can use on pasta, as the base for hot pot, or as a sauce for stir fried chicken or seafood.
