Octopus & Elver, truffle linguine

Octopus & Elver, truffle linguine I happened to be on a wee trip to TOTT's - just the most amazing shop here in Singapore. It stands for Tools of the Trade and is dedicated to cooking and kitchen, and food addicts like yours truly. It is like a whore house of cooking for foodies. I love it. Whilst there this trip I visited their deli and bought some very interesting items that I created a very interesting dish from. So was born Octopus & Elver Truffle Linguine. You’ll need ...

Pork Belly Fondue

Pork Belly Fondue Now I did this recipe for Pork Belly Fondue years ago, long before ChillaxBBQ and the knowledge of our mates at The Cheese Shop @ Joo Chiat. So how about I just tidy up the original recipe, and then have a crack at ChillaxBBQ to make an updated version of the recipe for our next up and coming BBQ. If you're up for it give us a bell. The French word, Fondre, is a verb meaning to melt. It's of Swiss, French and Italian origins it seems. Basically melted cheese, chocolate or ...

Breakfast sandwich

Breakfast sandwich 0900am one day. I was so sleepy. And then I get from Ollie; "Dad where's my breakfast?" Despite my tiredness this turned out to be spanking. Truly spanking. Ollie gave this a major thumbs up. I had one bite, and man oh man do I agree with that verdict. A simple, and simply delicious brekkie sandwich - my Breakfast sandwich. . There is  no need for me to list the ingredients for my Breakfast sandwich, as it all happens in sequence. It is such an easy, but bloody ...

Roman Stuffed Bread – a 2000 year old recipe

Roman Stuffed Bread - a 2000 year old recipe Quite a few years ago now, we had a UK jaunt that included a trip to Stonehenge.Whilst there, we wandered around the gift shop, and I procured a rather interesting cook book.

A meandering journey through British food, offering up true historic recipes through the ages from the Celts, Romans, Anglo Saxons, Normans, the Medieval Period, Elizabethans, the Civil War, ...

Black Pudding and Fried Bread

Black Pudding and Fried Bread Am I a good parent? Breakfast on this 16th August, and a decision to not fast-food it, but also not really sure of calorie intake. I just forced it on my Mary and my kids. I loved it. They did too. About four years taken off their lives though. It was worth it - this is my Black Pudding and Fried Bread. It goes like this for enough for four people to have a near heart attack experience of Black Pudding and Fried Bread. 6 slices of white bread - cut ...

My version of Borscht

My version of Borscht Something different for the gang today. A spin on the Russian peasant soup. This is My version of Borscht. A hearty, warming soup for those cold wintery nights in Singapore. Borscht is a soup from Eastern Europe, I think around Ukraine and the like. Usually containing beetroot, cabbage and potatoes, or I think sometimes led with tomato, and seconded with beetroot. Anyway what ever I created here is a sort of Borscht, that came out pretty damn nice. My version of ...

Malacca deep fried bread stuffed with mince beef

Malacca deep fried bread stuffed with mince beef I got this recipe idea from a recent trip to Malacca, and then came home to create Malacca deep fried bread stuffed with mince beef.  This is a cracking dish.  A must when your sitting there with an icy cold beer. Perfect bed-fellows. It was hot hot hot in Malacca this day, and we needed a refreshment break. We popped in to a watering hole down the back-streets, and I noticed a dish in the menu of fried bread and beef. Interesting I ...

Asian beef and popcorn

Asian beef and popcorn You simply just must try this, sounds crazy but it is so so good. Some of the ingredients for Asian beef and popcorn will sound a tad crazy, but believe me together they work so so very well. You get flavours and textures all in one. This received a massive thumbs up from all that were eating it this day. I made this recipe up having seen an article in an inflight magazine that used popcorn. With my impending birthday/house-warming BBQ coming soon I have been ...
