Expat Living Exposure
Expat Living Exposure
I can't quite believe what Kilo Under Pressure has exposed me to. Quite scary actually when you delve in to social media and the like. Too funny. And then there is the occasional self-caused promotion too. I reached out to my mat Shamus Sillar at ExMag.sg, remember I write for them. To ask if there could be an angle to get some coverage for my new mates at Kilo for the gig they just allowed me to do - literally my bucket-list. And bugger me I get Expat Living Exposure. ...

The final write up for yours truly was released today. Click here to get access to the web page. This is Kilo Under Pressure - the final write up.

Kennett’s Kilo Under Pressure #4
Kennett's Kilo Under Pressure #4
Final one for the day is actually the last dish you'll bet getting on 6th October. This is Kennett's Kilo Under Pressure #4, and the dessert is Filipino Pandan Sweetcorn, with Coconut and Toasted Sesame accompanied by Longan Sorbet. Phew!!! I think this is a match made in heaven. This reminds me of a day in Philippines, with Mary and the kids. On a day trip we stopped at this rope bridge thing, and being served at the entrance was this incredible sweetcorn ...

Here we go folks. This is what I am planning for the second course on 6th October. Kennett's Kilo Under Pressure #3 is Hanoi Pho Bo. The worldly renowned soup from Vietnam. Fabled in Singapore at the likes of Long Phung on Joo Chiat Road (see blog). This is a tough one. This is generations hand down recipe stuff happening here. 8 hours just for prepping the stock.
Even a global battle between the French and Vietnamese for its origins. The French saying Pho ...

One the the choice of main courses - this is Thai red curry, with grilled prawns and wilted Asian greens.
What do you think?Would you order it? Would you eat it? Would you really?
I will very likely be ...
Thai Red Curry BBQ Prawns
Thai Red Curry BBQ PrawnsI have been thinking and thinking about my menu, over and over again in fact for Kilo Under Pressure. I think I am decided on one, this fusion version of a Thai curry dish. This is my Thai Red Curry BBQ Prawns. I liked this a lot today. A couple of things to change of course, as you would expect. All improvements and enhancements, but the basics are firmly there, and it came out so very very well. I am very happy with this, especially after having Filipino ...
