Dry Chicken Curry

Stir Fried Prawn Noodles Recipe

This dish, is one of my all time favourites! (Yes, I know, I have too many  favourites!) Hokkien mee/Hokkien hae mee may represent different dishes within Asia. In case you get confused, when you order a plate of Hokkien mee (福建面) in Singapore, aka Char hae mee (炒虾面),...

Fresh mozzarella is a wonderful thing, it’s also a dangerous thing, imagine how much you would make and eat after learning to make it. The biggest obstacle here would be getting rennet in either its liquid or tablet form. It’s not that difficult to source...

Lu Rou Fan Recipe

I fell in love with the humble lu rou fan 卤肉饭, braised pork rice, during a trip to Taipei, full of flavour, unctuous and satisfying. It’s not on any nutritionist’s list of foods to eat, but it’s a definitely good for an occasional treat and a...

Thai Beef Curry

Curries. They’re in my book of favourites. When I was making the Thai fish cake, I had much of the Thai red curry paste left and of course, it’d be a natural thing to cook some Thai red curry! The only question is, what are we adding in to the curry? Since beef...

Beetroot Risotto Recipe
