Honey soy chicken and chicken rice

If I had to name a food to represent love, I would say it’s chicken rice. That is to say I love everyone I’ve cooked chicken rice for. And if ever someone needed/wanted to show me love – bring on the chicken rice ;)! Hainanese chicken rice (海南雞飯) is arguably the most famous chicken rice of […]

Spaghetti and zucchini strips in sichuan pepper oil

Officially in spring now guys! Yay for more sun but boo for the onset of hayfever season. I’m really lovin’ the longer hours of daylight. Being able to go home when there it’s still light outside is putting a little spring back in my step so with some luck, this should mean I can get […]

Conpoy and egg white fried rice (瑤柱蛋白炒飯)

April 8, 2014

I’m one of those jerks who usually scoffs at egg white omlettes. If you’re going to eat an egg dish, eat it properly. Egg white omlettes are about as confounding as sugarless lollies. I mean seriously, why bother? So here I am somewhat sheepishly writing about this conpoy and egg white fried rice (瑤柱蛋白炒飯) that […]

I love yum cha. It may not seem that way, because I don’t blog about my yum cha adventures very often. In fact, I’ve only ever written about it once. Not sure why that is the case, guess I find it a little difficult to write about. Yum cha for me is always a noisy […]

Chazuke with teriyaki salmon recipe

February 11, 2013

Isn’t it funny how some dishes we eat have a bigger effect on us than others? For whatever reason, this relatively simple and homely dish of chazuke (steamed rice in green tea) with salmon flakes has stuck in my mind. I first tried this dish years ago at the much loved Japanese restaurant, Yu-U (137 […]

Shredded chicken, sesame and noodle salad recipe

It’s not ground breaking news to report that we (as a nation) eat a lot of chicken. In 2011, the ABC reported that we eat an average of 37kg of chicken per annum. This figure puts chicken ahead of beef and lamb as our preferred protein. And if the forecasts are right, our taste for […]

Ants climbing on a tree recipe

August 7, 2012

I haven’t gone mad. There really is a dish called “ants climbing on a tree”, ask wikipedia if you don’t believe me! Sometimes literal translations just don’t work huh? Some names end up sounding quite strange when translated directly into English, but I think they sound rather poetic in the original language. So anyhow, ants […]

Abacus beads recipe

July 5, 2012

Since Poh first cooked abacus beads in her Masterchef audition back in 2009, I have been meaning to replicate the dish at home. It has become one of my favourite dishes to cook, even though it is quite process intensive whipping this up for a mid week dinner! Now, I daresay I’ve mastered the dish […]
