La Barca Beans

La Barca Beans I ate the dish alongside the best steak I think I have EVER had. This experience was at La Barca restaurant. Off home I ran to recreate, replicate and the outcome is as follows, my version of La Barca Beans. La Barca Beans can be consumed at this a beautiful hidden away restaurant, La Barca Ristoranti, that serves huge chargrilled steaks, with hot stones for you to cook further if your preference is more well done. And accompanying that monster steak is this dish of white ...

Thai style orange juice prawns

Thai style orange juice prawns One of those recipes that you have to ask yourself; "You have to be kidding me, Thai style orange juice prawns... are you serious?" Believe me I am absolutely 100% serious and this is turned out a superb dish. This one is whacky, I’ll give you that. Orange juice, orange segments, chili and fish paste – does not exactly sound like a marriage made in heaven now does it? But I was only applying the same core underlying principals of Thai food – ...

The best Bloody Mary

The best Bloody Mary I made this an absolute age ago, and was thinking well you can’t have a cooking site without a drink of some sort I suppose. So this is now officially added. The best Bloody Mary. The amazing thing re this recipe is that you’ll make it, you'll serve it, and I guarantee everyone will be asking what on earth it is. Don’t tell them. That's the mystery value of this recipe. Then watch as they taste it, watch the amazement when they realise it is in fact a ...

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...
