Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: Chinese Buffet at Home
It is no secret that I have an obsession with Chinese cuisine. The place that started it all was a local Chinese buffet here in Michigan. After frequent visits to the buffet over the years, I finally decided to take a stab at cooking my own Chinese dishes at home. The majority of the dishes were delicious and I began cooking different Chinese meals every week, but I had always wanted more variety just like the buffet. I had always wondered, “what if I could create a Chinese buffet at home?” I have wanted to do this for along time so I was very excited when I was chosen to be part of the 24,24,24 event presented by Foodbuzz. In this article I will explain how to create your own Chinese buffet at home.

Make me wanna challah – Challah on the Hudson, that is Rhona Schiffres. (Photo by Dan Barton) What started out as a labor of love when her son asked her to bake a few loaves of a certain kind of bread, has turned into Challah on the Hudson, a local name gaining some fame in Kingston’s foodie-verse. Two years or so ago, Uptown mom Rhona Schiffres, who’s resumed a 20-year career in sales, found herself between jobs. As she was used to being busy and now had the free time to do some baking, the request for challah by her son Marc, a Kingston High grad now a sophomore at the Rochester Institute of Technology, fell on willing ears.
