Twice cooked spicy pork belly (回鍋肉)

July 15, 2014

0

I’ve been a bit distracted lately and hence have neglected this blog because life demanded my attention to a rather tedious and  irritating task, but fret not I’m still alive! This dish is a little metaphoric for my return given its Chinese name, 回鍋肉, translates literally to “returned to wok meat”. Why is it returned […]

Warming ginger tea

April 20, 2014

2

Hope you’re getting some r&r this Easter break. I really love this type of weather, crisp and delightfully chilly. Perfect autumn weather for snuggling up at home with a good book or dvd set. And to keep me toasty warm, I’ve been sipping on some spicy ginger tea. I’m pretty sure ginger tea is widely […]

Here I am reviewing a bakery/cafe just after saying I rarely take photos when eating out nowadays…well I do like to contradict myself every so often. Keeps life interesting ;).

I’m feeling sufficiently bad for having only posted once this month. What can I say? Life has a habit of getting in the way. And it’s December; we all know how mad the festive season can get! Anyway I’m finally back to make amends and close the year with this final post. It only seems […]

Severely lacking in funds for an overseas adventure this year, the only respite I could afford was some time away in Sydney. We were already on an excellent start when Sydney greeted me with beautiful blue skies and a very mild winter’s day – perfect escape from Melbourne’s grey skies. So what’s a Melbourne girl […]

As promised, albeit a little later than I had intended, here is my little write up on master stock. Quite a few recipes refer to it and a number of celebrity chefs have raved about its use. But what exactly is it? I didn’t really understand what this was until I did my own research. […]

Ginger and pear cake recipe

Despite the retailers ramping up their summer advertising campaigns and the gloriously sunny days we’ve had, winter still feels like it’s in full swing. And is it just me, or is it especially cold this year? That, or age is really beginning to get the better of me. In any case, there is an upside […]

Cantonese style steamed fish recipe

May 28, 2012

0

This is potentially a wildly inaccurate assumption, but I’m going to make it anyway. I’ll wager that most people wouldn’t consider steamed fish to be a particularly glamourous item on a restaurant’s menu. But it really isn’t as boring as it may sound. Well executed steamed fish can be so elegant. This gentle method of […]
