La Residence Blanc D’Angkor, Siem Reap

La Residence Blanc D'Angkor, Siem Reap We arrived early evening for our first time in Siem Reap, and were staying at La Residence Blanc D'Angkor, Siem Reap. So where better to eat on this first day, than our gorgeous colonial boutique hotel. A quick unpack, and change to swim stuff. Some pool fun, some happy-hour beer and then in to the main event. Dinner. As I mentioned I did partake in a few Happy-Hour beverages. Every time you order you get these incredible peanuts. A match made in ...

Water Cress and Edamame Cream Soup With Crispy Bacon

Water Cress and Edamame Cream Soup With Crispy Bacon I was having lunch recently with my great mates, Spencer and Tobias. Whilst we were eating they started talking about this amazing soup they had eaten recently. Tobias had stolen the recipe from the restaurant and had also recreated it already for personal consumption. So now as a third hand-me-down, I also stole it, but made a few of my own twists and turns. So from a water cress and pea soup I created my own version, here is Water Cress ...

Cajun salmon

Cajun Salmon I have stolen this from my mate, and ex Chef, Rich. Well actually he did share it with me. I was at a loose end tonight re what to do for dinner, and add to that, that the Kennett's are disappearing to Cambodia tomorrow. Luckily the little light bulb popped up and I remember Rich's recipe for Cajun Salmon. The wife would love it I thought. It turned out to be an absolute belter. Surprising myself, as always, when cooking fish as I cannot taste it. I think it looks bloody amazing ...

The American Club

The American Club It's the last Friday of the month, and that means it is BeefSteak & Burgundy lunchtime. A gathering of fine fellows who all have a liking of fine dining and drinking. We laugh. We chat. No work talk. No mobile phones. It is an institution that truly is wonderful. Today we dined for lunch at The American Club. So there you go folks, my first experience of The American Club fare. It was OK. It was not a meal that I would say would drag me back to ...

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 ...

Chicken & Bacon Pot Pie

Chicken & Bacon Pot Pie Whilst reading my mate Anthony Bourdain's new book, Appetites a Cookbook, I saw this recipe for Chicken Pot Pie. It immediately threw me back to the one I had recently in New York. So, thought I, for Sunday dinner my mission is to create my very own from these two experiences. As you will see, I did, but of course changed it so it became mine, ha ha. It is now Chicken & Bacon Pot Pie. The Americans tend to have this is a bottomless pie, only with the ...
