Thai style orange juice prawns

Thai style orange juice prawns One of those recipes that you have to ask yourself; "You have to be kidding me, Thai style orange juice prawns... are you serious?" Believe me I am absolutely 100% serious and this is turned out a superb dish. This one is whacky, I’ll give you that. Orange juice, orange segments, chili and fish paste – does not exactly sound like a marriage made in heaven now does it?

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...

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. ...

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.

Thai style pork curry with coconut

Thai style pork curry with coconut It was one of those days. The family needed feeding. Damn what we got? “Not a lot”, was the answer. “Some pork is in the freezer.” Hmmmm, now that’s a great help – NOT! Down to the minimart I trudged with a list of 4 items, and ended up back upstairs in kitchen Kennett with 3 carrier bags full of stuff. Not all for the dish though, which I created in my mind whilst browsing, but not far from it. I am sticking this in to the Thai section, as I ...
