This is going to be your best school dinner NOT a traditional school dinner

Today’s best school dinner came at the request of Strawberry Blonde and her lovely school mates: Zi Ying, Zhi Hao, and Enzo. Omakase-style by design from the crew, inspired by amazing ingredients from Meat Collective. Remember the meaning of Omakase: a Japanese meal consisting of dishes selected by the chef.

These dishes are not only delightful to taste buds but also pack a nutritious punch, and boy do they look good.

What was the best school dinner menu today?

Meat Collective does these cracking pre-cooked lobsters @ $19 a piece.

I made a Home-Made Sage, Garlic Butter Recipe, by chopping up about 2 Tbsp of fresh sage and garlic and stirring it through 3/4 pack of softened salted butter.

Cut the Meat Collective lobsters in half, and lay them in a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and cracked black pepper, and then slather the sage, and garlic butter all over. Pop them in the oven for 10 minutes for the sage, and garlic butter to soak in and melt. Flame it with a chef torch and then add a small spoonful of caviar. Serve that bad boy up. Be proud Meat Collective, these were beauties.

Meat Collective offer up this INCREDIBLE Japanese Wagyu: Miyazaki Japanese A4/5 Wagyu Ribeye @ $19.80 per 100 GMS.

For the below, I thinly sliced the Japanese Wagyu Ribeye, allowed it to come to room temperature, and then gave a good sprinkle of sea salt and cracked black pepper. Dry pan-fry this as the fat in the Wagyu will release and stop it from sticking. Fry it off until it’s cooked halfway through and then flame it to medium-rare table-side with a chef torch. I love a bit of food theatre.

I served this up on a platter, as per the picture. Yummo. The kids loved this.

Enzo was the brave diner tonight and wanted to try my Japanese Wagyu Carpaccio Recipe: Asian-Style.

I trimmed up the Japanese Wagyu to remove any fatty bits, you don’t want a chewy Carpaccio. Chop that into a rough mince like the photo and pop it into a bowl. Add in a sprinkle of sea salt, cracked black pepper, a drizzle of Olive oil, one finely chopped shallot, two Tbsp of chopped capers, and half a chopped chili padi.

Tomato Basil Balsamic and Mozzarella Salad: AKA Palate Cleanser

This is my Strawberry Blonde’s favourite so I always make this for her. Because of the Balsamic vinegar acidity, makes it a really nice palate cleanser. And she looks stunning, right? I always use Heirloom Tomatoes because of the added flavour and the beautiful colours.

Slice the Heirloom Tomatoes up and pop them in a bowl. Season with sea salt and cracked black pepper. Drizzle with Olive oil and pop on a serving platter. Cut up some fresh Mozzarella and lay it over the tomatoes. Rip up some fresh Basil and throw that over the top of the salad. Drizzle with Balsamic and maybe sprinkle with a little more sea salt and Kampot black pepper.

Massive Mala Prawns

So simple. I put 5 Monster King Prawns in a zip-lock bag and added some Olive oil, sea salt, cracked black pepper, Mala paste, and some Balachan chili paste. Allow that to marinate for half a day. I popped them on a baking tray and baled them for 20 minutes until pink and puffed up. Serve with some Calamnsi limes. Delicious.

Meat Collective offer up these incredible Australian Wagyu MBS3 Tomahawks 400 days grain fed -@ $6.90 PER 100 GMS. These Tomahawks are award-winning Australian Wagyu from Lotte.

The very best way to cook Tomahawk steaks is reverse searing. Set your oven to 90 degrees. Ensure you have left the steak out for an hour or so to bring it to room temperature (that allows the meat to cook evenly). Give it a monster sprinkle with sea salt and cracked black pepper (Kampot pepper if you have it) all over, like a lot. Whack that in the oven on the shelf and pop the potatoes in below so the beef juices will drip on them as it cooks.

For the potatoes: pre-boil them in salted water until soft. Dry them off and pop them in a baking tray. Give a good drizzle of Olive oil, add in about 4 TBSp of Beef Tallow, a few sprigs of fresh Thyme, add in 2 Garlic Bulbs cut in half, and give a good sprinkle of sea salt and cracked black pepper. To add an extra crisp, you can fry these off in a skillet once nicely roasted. 

Once your 90 minutes is up allow that Tomahawk Steak to rest for about an hour, then heat up a skillet pan to smoking hot and sear that bad boy with a beautiful crust. Carve him up straight away like in the picture and sprinkle again with sea salt and cracked black pepper. BOOMSKI: check out that Pink2Pink PERFECTION. It’s an signature dish.
