If you've read my previous post on the event, you've must've seen the pix above. Wonderful thing about attending these cooking demos is that you'll always discover something new from these Master Chefs. That evening, I found that you can actually use flame from a simple lighter to draw out the scent & flavour from an orange peel just before serving a dish!
