The best tomato soup

The very best tomato soup Today my poor little girl was sick today. So for poor little Amy it was congee with some smoked ham sliced in to it to give a little flavour. She ate well so we were all happy, as she seems to be on the mend. But we are locked in the condo though, so lets get some other food going for her now, this is the recipe for The very best tomato soup. I opened one of the cupboard doors the first thing that caught my eye was tomato soup. Ideas cakes flooding to me from ...

The World Pie Cooking Contest 2014, Hosted by Singapore

The World Pie Cooking Contest 2014, hosted by Singapore I got a few SMS pouring in from my mate, Steve, late one Saturday night - "Ring me dickhead, I need you to be the judge in a cooking competition tomorrow." 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 ...

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 ...

Asam Pedas Gravy with Bone Marrow

Asam Pedas Gravy with Bone Marrow Remember Tioman Island blog. Remember this dish below - the delicious Asam Pedas Oxtail dish. Mine clearly looks a lot different - bit more turmeric, no bones per se. So slight issue I have is getting access to bones in Singapore. The ones in Malaysia had like huge lumps of steak hanging from them, and bones marrow galore - here in Singapore I find the oxtail bones to be like those of a whippet dog - tiny. So improvise whilst still trying to keep a ...

Spicy Thai, Thai Cafe

Spicy Thai, Thai Cafe Spicy Thai, Thai Cafe - 01-35, Block 115 Aljunied Avenue 2, is a cracker. Believe me folks, this place is a BELTER! I really was in need of a Thai fix. But that food style can be quite hard to find in Singapore, as it is more the 'chain' of restaurants such as Thai Express, not really your hawker fair. The chains are OK, but they are chains. I needed something more authentic. Memories of Thailand trips with the family and friends, scoffing down plates of delicious ...

My Little Spanish Place, @ 619 Bukit Timah Road

My Little Spanish Place, @ 619 Bukit Timah Road This place is worth every single penny spent in my view. Chef Edward is now a mate. He is a genius in the kitchen, without doubt. My Little Spanish Place, @ 619 Bukit Timah Road, or @ Boat Quay are seriously die, die, must try restaurants in Singapore. You just simply have to try once. This review is actually a re-write of the very first time we went to Edward's place, but I tell you, it feels like yesterday. I can still taste the food. It really ...

Fried fish fillet with prawns, in a cream of mushroom sauce

Fried fish fillet with prawns, with a cream of mushroom sauce A new fish dish, that began with my Mary saying; "Don't forget we have leftovers." What she actually meat was, we have a fish fillet and about 6 prawns remaining from what I had cooked the day before. I stared at this, and then created Fried fish fillet with prawns, with a cream of mushroom sauce. This will serve about 2-4 depending on hunger levels: 1 firm white fish fillet - cod, snapper etc; 6-8 shelled prawns (A ...

Indian oxtail & lentil curry

Oxtail & lentil curry If I remember rightly this creation came from eating a brunch one day on our ravels through Asia. I fell in love with the dish immediately and swore to myself that I need to re-create my own version, and strangely enough this is how my Oxtail & lentil curry was created. If I remember correctly I had this curry in Penang when Mary and the kids and I visited once. So in honour of that memory I created this dish in July 2013 - Oxtail & lentil curry. I used ...
