Singaporean beef mulled wine soup

Singaporean beef mulled wine soup A friend of mine asked me to have a go at this one, as it is a favourite food whenever he is staying over in Singapore. He called it Singaporean beef mulled wine soup, because of the resemblance to traditional mulled wine we have in Europe. I had to do some research to find some possible versions of this to at least give me a clue. I also used duck for this version, not beef. A little twist as I always have to, to ensure I am making something new. Ap...

Chinese chicken & sweetcorn soup

Asian Sprouts

Asian Sprouts with Bacon Apologies to all my non-porky friends but this really does need the bacon - it is a marriage made in heaven. I am a boy originally from Margate in England, and bacon was a staple fried breakfast option along with black-pudding, sausages, fried slice, tomatoes, mushrooms, beans and a mug of tea. You know, I kind of miss that some times when living in Asia. So let's bring an element of it back to home in Singapore thought I, and here we go Asian Sprouts with Bacon. ...

Prata wrap cockles

We eat out so much at our local food courts that it really does allow you to get confidence to try. Try to eat and try to cook. So even the recipes where I am not comparing to a local dish are related in some shape or form to some experience. I am not madly in love with the taste of cooked fish as you know, but I’ll try it anyway. The same applies for shellfish, but I’ll try. It was always taught to me to “not eat with my eyes”, and “try before you say you don’t like”. Here is ...

Carpaccio of Beef Asian Style

This is really really good. So turn off your eating with your eyes and just enjoy the flavours. Yes folks we venture in to the world of raw beef. Yep pull off its horns, wipe its bum and get it on the plate. For a large plate, easily enough for 4-6 you will need; 2-3 rib-eye steaks with the fatty parts all trimmed off. On some cling film lay a steak and then with a cooking mallet, or rolling pin, basically bash the shit out of it. You want it about 1 cm thick. I then roll to a ...

Japanese dancing omelettes – Bonito style

So it was my turn to cook breakfast. What to do? What to cook the kids that they’d like? Lets get creative and make Japanese style omelet. Piece of cake this if you have the ingredients to hand. That’s what drove me to create this one - basically what was in the fridge! This will make a 2-egg omelet, so quite big and potentially enough for two. Or if you have a son like Oliver, it’s enough for one person. You’ll need; 2 eggs; 1 pinch of salt; 1 pinch of cracked black ...

Lapsang Souchong Tea Noodles

Lapsang Souchong Tea Noodles How quick is this dish to make. This is my Lapsang Souchong Tea Noodles. Sounds a tad exotic right - cooking with tea. It could not be simpler. This Lapsang Souchong Tea Noodles dish is a "blink and you'll miss it" dish. This is banging it really is. So quick and yet so very delicious. In seconds! I hope you have a tea-pot? If not a normal saucepan will do. This is enough for 3-4 people - you will need; 1 litre chicken stock; Chicken stock ...
