Chinese New Year is around the corner, just barely a month away and I’m sure many of you would have notice the “changes” occurring around, as the Christmas decor in the shopping malls in town undergone an almost overnight revamp or overhaul of some sort with the pine trees turning into cherry blossoms and mistletoes become red lanterns. It is also a time when homebakers and gourmands get really busy in the kitchen preparing all the Chinese New Year goodies and dishes for all the snacking and feasting to come during the festive season. One of the quintessential Chinese New Year snack which seems to be an absolute must for anyone and everyone is bak kwa, the Asian version of a meat jerky which is customarily made with pork but now we see versions of it made from chicken and beef as well. Very recently, I was very lucky to be given one set of the latest Samsung Smart Oven to play around with and the first thing that came to my mind was to make bak kwa with it!
