Bacon and beans

Bacon and Beans Friends were coming to have some food at the pool - our neighbours The Rutherford's, Paul and Lennie. I wanted to do some different dishes and this was one of them. My Bacon and Beans. Lennie is a top cook,  so I always have to be top of my game re what I am preparing and cooking when she comes. Today I tried something different, and went more Western.

Mar Hor AKA Thai galloping horses

Mar Hor AKA Thai galloping horses This is like a Thai version of my Shaking Beef recipe. Remember that one? This dish is called Mar Hor AKA Thai galloping horses, and it is an absolute cracker.

And so started The World Pie Cooking Contest 2014, Hosted by Singapore. I pinged a message back to him, initially sort of declining as a friend was over from UK. Something along the lines of; "When, where and who is cooking?" I thought perfectly within my rights to ask such ...

Mel’s Devil Curry

Mel's Devil Curry I have had the good fortune to go to Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia many times to see clients and colleagues - you know who you are.

And whilst there we had the opportunity to go for lunch. Gordy's choice was this little unassuming joint called Mel's. The sign simply stated 'Malacca Portuguese Cuisine'. I'll have some of that ...
