For those of you that asked. Here’s the Kung Pao chicken recipe I made last night and posted on Instagram. Some small edits to the recipe. I used thin pounded organic chicken and then cut it into small strips. The chicken is much more tender. I get my chicken from a butcher on Westwood Blvd The Rabbi’s Daughter. They pound each piece really thin and wrap it nicely so it defrosts quickly. I left out the brown sugar (you don’t have to). I used rice vinegar instead of white vinegar and used Chinese rice wine instead of white wine (either works). I also added dried red chilies which added some extra flavor and spice. You might need to reserve some extra liquid (either water or soy sauce) to remove some of the crust that forms on the bottom of the pan after you saut√© the chicken and add the sauce. I served it with white rice and stir fried miso shishito peppers. I will definitely be making this again.

JW Sunday Style Section

Friday night was frigid and to warm me up I bundled up in my Navy Peacoat for a date night out at Felix. We had a great corner table with a view of Evan Funke rolling out his homemade delicious pasta! Dinner was outstanding as usual. Saturday morning I opened the WSJ style section and coincidentally they had a whole article on The Peacoat. This timeless, cold weather coat has been around since the 16th century where it was originally created to keep Dutch sailors warm at sea. It never goes out of style and comes back with slight modifications each and every season. My Sandro Peacoat with faux shearling collar is no longer available but I found some similar alternatives.
