Spam & Corned Beef Sisig

Spam & Corned Beef Sisig Off to the Philippines now for my version of one my all time Filipino dishes, Sisig. But this is Spam & Corned Beef Sisig, my style. Daddypedia time now; I had no idea that Sisig is a Kapampangan word to describe snacking on something sour. I did check that with Mary first, but he didn't know ha ha. Apparently it usually refers to fruits. In The Philippines that usually means unripe fruit, such as green mango, so you get the sour flavour. You then dip in the ...

Tom Yam Fish Head Soup

Tom Yam Fish Head Soup A very simple affair this one, but the results are spectacular. This is my Tom Yam Fish Head Soup. Apologies in advance for the photo, this was before I was using my new camera. Some slight cheating for this one again, as I do in fact use some Tom Yam paste from the supermarket as the initial base. Seriously though the packet mixes are so good now, why bother adding 30-40 minutes of prep time if you are in a rush to cook. Especially like me with two kids ...

Singaporean beef mulled wine soup

Singaporean beef mulled wine soup A friend of mine asked me to have a go at this one, as it is a favourite food whenever he is staying over in Singapore. He called it Singaporean beef mulled wine soup, because of the resemblance to traditional mulled wine we have in Europe. I had to do some research to find some possible versions of this to at least give me a clue. I also used duck for this version, not beef. A little twist as I always have to, to ensure I am making something new. Ap...

Asian Sprouts

Asian Sprouts with Bacon Apologies to all my non-porky friends but this really does need the bacon - it is a marriage made in heaven. I am a boy originally from Margate in England, and bacon was a staple fried breakfast option along with black-pudding, sausages, fried slice, tomatoes, mushrooms, beans and a mug of tea. You know, I kind of miss that some times when living in Asia. So let's bring an element of it back to home in Singapore thought I, and here we go Asian Sprouts with Bacon. ...

Lapsang Souchong Tea Noodles

Lapsang Souchong Tea Noodles How quick is this dish to make. This is my Lapsang Souchong Tea Noodles. Sounds a tad exotic right - cooking with tea. It could not be simpler. This Lapsang Souchong Tea Noodles dish is a "blink and you'll miss it" dish. This is banging it really is. So quick and yet so very delicious. In seconds! I hope you have a tea-pot? If not a normal saucepan will do. This is enough for 3-4 people - you will need; 1 litre chicken stock; Chicken stock ...

Thai style pork curry with coconut

Thai style pork curry with coconut It was one of those days. The family needed feeding. Damn what we got? “Not a lot”, was the answer. “Some pork is in the freezer.” Hmmmm, now that’s a great help – NOT! Down to the minimart I trudged with a list of 4 items, and ended up back upstairs in kitchen Kennett with 3 carrier bags full of stuff. Not all for the dish though, which I created in my mind whilst browsing, but not far from it. I am sticking this in to the Thai section, as I ...

Thai beach food

Thai beach food Sat one day having a beer at Ska Bar on the beach at Kata Beach, Phuket, when up strolls this chap with what looked like boiled eggs in baskets on his pole. Street food hits the beach it seems - truly Thai beach food. But what was it he was selling? Was it just boiled eggs or something more? Let's explore!!! In those baskets were actually BBQ eggs, and they were flipping gorgeous. I have had an attempt at making them and it is bloody hard and not as nice. I ...
