Honey soy chicken and chicken rice

October 5, 2014

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 […]

Chicken “noodle” salad

September 15, 2014

You know the other thing I like about spring? The move towards lighter eating. ‘Tis the season to munch on healthy salads and shed the excess weight gained during the hibernation months. I’m being extra good with this carb free chicken “noodle” salad. How is a noodle salad carb free you ask? Well…it’s not actually […]

I have a love hate relationship with winter. I hate catching a cold/flu. I hate the need to wear multiple pieces of clothing out only to shed it all off and lug it around as soon as you step inside anywhere. I hate waking up and going home in the dark and feeling like there […]

Roast chicken with pearl couscous and roast sweet potato salad

June 24, 2014

Unless you are vegetarian or vegan, roast chicken is one of those dishes everyone learns to cook and eventually develops their own way of doing. (Even if you are vegetarian/vegan, keep reading, the accompanying couscous and sweet potato salad is pretty good.) Certainly I’m aware I do a couple of things differently to my roast […]

8bit

I’ve been super lazy these days, hence the lack of cooking posts. Good thing a new burger joint has recently opened up nearby. 8bit (8 Droop Street, Footscray VIC) is one of Footscray’s newest installations and is the first burger place for the suburb. Hooray for more variety and the introduction of a new hip […]

Clear chicken stock and a quick noodle soup

October 16, 2013

I hadn’t planned on writing a post about a basic clear chicken stock because it feels a bit like I’m trying to teach you how to suck eggs, but at a friend’s suggestion I’m going to share a few thoughts on it. She had seemed rather surprised that I bothered to make my own and […]

Sticky rice and chicken in lotus leaf (lor mai gai) recipe

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 […]

Sweet and spicy chicken ribs recipe

It’s no secret that I’m a little bit in love with Adam Liaw (winner of Masterchef series 2). One of the highlights last year was meeting him at the Food for Thought event. I really like his cooking style, he’s an eloquent speaker and just seems like a all round nice guy. I’ve picked up […]

Chicken and quinoa salad recipe

Eating well on weeknights can be hard, Monday nights are especially bad. You’ve hardly recovered from the weekend, it’s been a long day at work and by the time you make it home for dinner, all you want to do is lie on the couch and mentally prepare yourself for the next day. Who can […]

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 […]

Taste of Asia BBQ House

February 21, 2012

We’re still on our last legs of summer, so quite naturally my mind is still set on lazy weekend picnics or barbeques. Speak of barbeques, a new one just opened up not too far from my abode. That, and the fact that it was featured on one of those coupon sites I so enjoy frequenting, […]

China: A taste of Hangzhou

Oh what a glorious city Hangzhou is. Renowned for its history, natural beauty, Dragon Well tea and delicious cuisine, this was a must visit city for me. The food did not disappoint, no doubt the best city (at least amongst the ones I managed to visit on this voyage) for eating. My food highlights from […]

Warung Agus

Warung Agus (305 Victoria Street, West Melbourne VIC – some sites list it as North Melbourne) has got to be one of the most unassuming and lovely places I’ve had the pleasure of dining in.  In fact, I’ve driven past it a number of times, not knowing of the treasures within. But it just so happened that […]
