Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett’s Tour

Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett's Tour Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett's Tour, or water day as it became affectionately known. Our mate Mr Kim came and picked us up. Let's do something a little different today. Off we go to  hot springs, and water parks. The hot springs are a fair jaunt out of town, but in some beautiful countryside of Thailand. This place is at Sankampaeng Hot Springs. Yep it is volcanic, yep it is smelly because of the sulphur, it's very hot too. But a VERY cool place. It costs about ...

Chiang Mai Day #3 Kennett’s Tour

Chiang Mai Day #3 Kennett's Tour OK today is temple time for Chiang Mai Day #3 Kennett's Tour. We had pre-booked Mr Kim again, as he really is a top bloke.

Chiang Mai Day #2 Kennett’s Tour

Chiang Mai Day #2 Kennett's Tour And here with go with Chiang Mai Day #2 Kennett's Tour. I am calling this one The Day of Firsts, which will become evident as you read on. What a day. We started it off with a nice lay-in, followed by a superb buffet breakfast at The Empress Hotel. I have to say I ate the very best congee I have ever had, and continued to have day after day it was that good. I think the big difference here was that they use pork, and chicken stock not water. It's killer! Add ...

Chiang Mai Day #1 Kennett’s Tour

Chiang Mai Day #1 Kennett's Tour We needed a family break. I have done so much traveling myself this year, but sadly it has all been alone with work. I was chatting with a client over a few beers one evening, and we got on to travel and me being a foodie. James said; "In that case you simply must go to Chiang Mai, as that is the place I have had some of the very best food ever!" I was sold, I booked immediately and so started Chiang Mai Day #1 Kennett's Tour. We checked in to The Empress ...

Roasted and Curried Red Snapper

Roasted and Curried Red Snapper My theory was, that if it is baked in a baking paper bag it would keep all the juices in the fish and therefore be super moist? Yep it worked roasted and Curried Red Snapper is quite a simple recipe, although there is a fair bit of prep. You end up with this beautifully baked fish curry in a bag, and the curry turns almost like a Tom Yum soup. Quite an amazing transformation happens in the bags as you're baking. According to the consuming audience it ...

Lovely flavours in this, it's easy to eat, it looks lovely and colourful too. This was a great success with Baby Jude. This really is so very quick and simple, so keep up. Here comes my ...

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 ...
