Sashimi Laab

Sashimi Laab Sashimi Laab? Yes folks you heard me correctly. This idea came from my great mate Richard, who's Thai wife, Yui, is apparently a dab hand at this dish. So today for my wife's lunch I thought I would have a crack using my recipe for laab gai and using sashimi, not the usual chicken/pork mince. This really is a very simple dish to make, and the outcome received rapturous applause so I think I'll be doing this again. Nothing to cook for this recipe apart from the toasting of ...

Sausage, bacon & chicken rice bake with cheesy garlic bread

Sausage, bacon & chicken rice bake with cheesy garlic bread Did you hear me correctly? Did I actually say; Sausage, bacon & chicken rice bake with cheesy garlic bread. I sure did. I made this today for Sunday dinner for the family. Something I have not done for an age. This is one you simply have to try. It is a 'die die must try' in my reckoning. A little bit of fusion with East meets West too. All adds to the mystery. Amy and I got cracking this Sunday on this recipe. First up was ...

Kennett’s Kilo Under Pressure #3

Kennett's Kilo Under Pressure #3 Here we go folks. This is what I am planning for the second course on 6th October. Kennett's Kilo Under Pressure #3 is Hanoi Pho Bo. The worldly renowned soup from Vietnam. Fabled in Singapore at the likes of Long Phung on Joo Chiat Road (see blog). This is a tough one.

One the the choice of main courses - this is Thai red curry, with grilled prawns and wilted Asian greens. What do you think? Would you order it? Would you eat it? Would you really? I will very likely be ...

Roast Beef – Sunday Roast

Roast Beef - Sunday Roast Come on Singapore. I know you all love a good roast on a Sunday. Expats or non-Expats. Well here's one for you to try. Here's my Roast Beef - Sunday Roast. A day of rest, with a beautiful lay-in. Off to get some shopping a few bits and pieces. A lovely lunch with the family, minus Ollie today, and then a little more shopping. The shopping included buying this monster Beef Rib Eye from The Butcher - boys there I tell you that was one hell of a piece of meat. ...

Vietnamese Orange & Ginger Chicken Wings, with Cucumber Salad

Vietnamese Orange & Ginger Chicken Wings, with Cucumber Salad Vietnamese Orange & Ginger Chicken Wings, with Cucumber Salad, started off with some inspiration from my mate Gordon, courtesy of his cook book - The Food of South East Asia - bought me as a present from Doug and Annie Peris. Reading through that, this rainy day in Singapore, I did indeed gain inspiration and pulled together these two amazing bed fellows. The wing are jammy because of the orange and honey, and the salad is ...

Breakast Pizza with cheese, garlic, bacon and Maple syrup

Breakfast Pizza with cheese, garlic, bacon and Maple syrup Yes my friends I did get this right, yes I did make a pizza for breakfast, and yes it was a pizza with Maple syrup.
