Bacon, edamame and cheese sandwich

Bacon, edamame and cheese sandwich Yes, the usual food emergency occurred again today. We had had a lovely afternoon at East Coast Hawker on the beach. We arrived home to get Jude settled - yes this was a few years back that I created this dish. But then "Oh no, we have no food..." So I created this open sandwich, my bacon, edamame and cheese sandwich. My Bacon, edamame and cheese sandwich came out looking pretty damn good. It also tasted pretty damn good too. The kids loved it too. ...

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. Whilst there I visited work offices, also had a great opportunity to have a meet and a gas with my great mate Gordon this trip (which was ages ago actually). 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 ...

The Best Beef Chilli

The Best Beef Chilli I made this recipe for a mates BBQ one time, and it turned out to really be an outstanding dish. So delicious; spicy, smoky, rich and deeply flavoursome, cheesy and oozing a thick gravy for dipping tortillas in. In my reckoning one of, if not The Best Beef Chilli. And actually it's so very simple to make. This will make a big bowl of chilli, easily enough for 4-5. The Best Beef Chilli will stretch to many, as you can add some guacamole, some tortilla dippers or ...

Amazing Nachos Check out my recipe for The Best Beef Chilli, that is the perfect bed below for these Amazing Nachos. You want some Chilli dipping action?

I have tried to make my recipes very easy, but delicious and looking pretty ...

Tomato, mozzarella, basil and balsamic vinegar salad

Tomato, mozzarella, basil and balsamic vinegar salad We all love this salad. Its sweet, savoury, acidic and so very moorish. You just cannot stop eating it.

This is enough for four people as a side dish, or even a lunch-time main. This is my Tomato, mozzarella, basil and balsamic vinegar salad. You can make this in two ...

Hainanese Chicken Rice

Hainanese Chicken Rice This is one of the quintessential dishes of Singapore. Dare I have a go at recreating my own version of Hainanese Chicken Rice? Is it like stepping on the toes of Singaporean food authenticity? I tell you what, who cares, as here comes my version for you to try. This is also one of Bourdain's favourite Singaporean dishes, and he has it every time he comes. Also don't forget Ramsay had a hawker challenge to compete against a local chef, and lost. I tell you ...

Sweetcorn, Sesame, Pandan, Coconut, & Butter Dessert

Sweetcorn, Sesame, Pandan, Coconut, & Butter Dessert You know I love street food, well I hope you have realised that by now. This idea came from a trip t Philippines where we stood on a rickety rope bridge and consumed - Sweetcorn, Sesame, Pandan, Coconut, & Butter Dessert - come on how good is this going to be.  This turned out to be an absolute cracker. Ideal for a starter or as I have been making it for dessert. It is quite salty, but also sweet - so this is a savoury ...

Pork and Mushroom Soup

Pork and Mushroom Soup The usual situation happens. We have loads of bits in the fridge, it's a rainy day, and Baby Jude is fast asleep. A decision was made to stay indoors, but what to eat for dinner. Daddy gets creative and comes up with this cracking, Pork and Mushroom Soup. A quick scoot to Cold Storage to get a couple of bits and hey presto we had a really nice noodle soup. This will make 3 litres of Pork and Mushroom Soup, so more than enough for 4-6 people easily. There is an ...
