Blu Jaz Cafe @ Bali Lane

Blu Jaz Cafe @ Bali Lane We have not been to this area for an age. My tattooist, Derrik, moved from Haji Lane, and work moved from Gateway Towers, so we have had no real reason to be down here. But today I was visiting the boys at Hounds of the Baskervilles, for a wee beard trim and we decided to have dinner at my old favourite haunt; Blu Jaz Cafe @ Bali Lane. So glad we did this. It was packed to the rafters for the 3-4 hours we were there. Mobbed in fact. This whole area has become the ...

ChillaxBBQ inaugural event

ChillaxBBQ inaugural event You know when you have one of those ideas and you think, yeah never gonna happen? Well my mate Rutherford and I had one. Did we make it happen? This day was the first - concept to reality. We made it happen - this is ChillaxBBQ inaugural event. How excited were we to be cooking for our mates AJ and Jerri and their celebration of their newborn Kaius? I tell you what, not just excited, but quietly having kittens. A list of 80 turning up, that turned in to 120. OMG!!! ...

Limewood Restaurant Hong Kong @ Repulse Bay

Limewood Restaurant, Hong Kong @ Repulse Bay How lucky am I sometimes? I recently flew to Hong Kong for work. I was taken to dinner by my Big Boss at an amazing place on Repulse Bay with my work colleagues. The place we visited was Limewood Restaurant, Hong Kong @ Repulse Bay. I think this is a favourite of the Boss, as he frequents here many weekends after a jog from the city, a quick swim in the sea, and lunch with family and friends. How good is that? But why does he keep on coming ...

Cooking Class @ TOTT, with Chef Julie Yee

Cooking Class @ TOTT, with Chef Julie Yee We I have to say this was great fun. Back in June, Mary bought me a gift card, and today I honoured it having a Cooking Class @ TOTT, with Chef Julie Yee. I decided on this course because it was Thai Cuisine, and very good cuisine it was too. 3 other budding cooks were in the class. We ended up making 4 dishes in total; Homemade green curry, Thai olive fried rice, Thai fish and prawn Otah mousse, and Thai steamed sponge boat. Great work Chef Julie, I ...

Sandbank @ Parkland Green

Sandbank @ Parkland Green Whilst having a lovely staycation a week ago, we decided to frequent Sandbank @ Parkland Green. Yes that place where Mary and I had our wedding reception. The one with the swimming pools out the front. Beautiful place, lovely and airy with gorgeous sea breezes wafting you as you eat. And also some pretty damned good food. What did we eat? Really, really nice. Super creamy avocado on garlic bread. Get a little sprinkle of salt on to this and it is heavenly. Good ...

Mediterranean Breakfast

Mediterranean Breakfast Day two of staycation, and time to cook breakfast for the family. Today I made a Mediterranean Breakfast, of sorts. It's got Chorizo, turmeric and paprika so I think that qualifies for Mediterranean, don't you? A very simple recipe that is so bloody tasty. A fantastic breakfast, in fact, that was consumed by all in silence. This is all baked in the oven at 200 degrees, on one baking tray, covered with some foil. See what I mean about easy. Mediterranean Breakfast ...

Baby Jude’s Wagyu Beef Pie

Baby Jude's Wagyu Beef Pie I am on a staycation at the moment, so spending lots of time at home with Mary and the kids. That clearly translates in to time to do some home cooking, which is ACE. That happened today, when we created Baby Jude's Wagyu Beef Pie. Mary had tasked Jude and I to pop over Cold Storage to get some bits and pieces. Whilst Jude was sat in the trolley he kept pulling things from the shelves - soya beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, sausages etc. What to do with this lot I ...
