元宵节是农历新春第一个月圆之日;既是中国传统“新春”定义的最后一天,也是现代春节假日后的第一个重要节日。除了猜灯谜,赏花灯,和家人一起吃元宵(上海人俗称汤圆)也是重要的庆祝节目之一。值此佳节,我们诚邀会员们一起来做汤圆过元宵。

有兴趣的朋友,请于本周六(2月23日)晚7点,带着吃货的精神来新车间热闹热闹吧。我们会准备传统的肉糜,红豆沙和黑芝麻馅的,如果你有祖传秘方,也一起带来吧!

因为场地空间的限制,我们最多接受25位朋友的预订;请联系 jiaqi@xinchejian.com,以便我们准备相应人数的食物和材料。(注:此次活动仅向新车间会员开放;带着你们的大胃王;其余的?我们来准备)周六见!

Sous Vide Cooker Hack

April 13th, 2012 § 1 comment § permalink

I was in Shenzhen Maker Faire with Rocket and tasted the delicious sous vide eggs from Lower East Kitchen, a great new startup to bring sous vide to everyone!

We have been missing the eggs since return and can’t wait for the machine from Lower East Kitchen.

Hackers we were, we went components shopping on Taobao to build a machine of our own. The components are fairly easy: a hot pot cooker, a PID controller and a temperature sensor. With Qichen, we built one today and cook a few eggs! They taste awesome! YUMMY!!! ;)
