Annabel Langbein’s Caramelised Asian Pork Belly

Pork belly would have to be one of my favourite cuts of meat and it’s also one of the easiest to cook – all those layers of meat interspersed with fat means it’s hard to overcook or dry it out. I’ve posted quite a few recipes for pork belly and I didn’t really think I […]

Martin Boetz’s Thai Crispy Pork Belly & Pineapple Curry

Martin Boetz used to be the executive chef at a wonderful Thai restaurant in Sydney called Longrain. Unfortunately he left the helm to pursue other ventures which is such a shame as he really set the gold standard for modern Thai food here in Sydney. Luckily though we can continue to recreate Martin’s amazing food […]

Chicken Kapitan – Malaysian Chicken Curry

I adore Malaysian food, especially their curries which combine all the characteristics of Indian curries along with Chinese and Malaysian flavours, so you can imagine just how flavour packed they are. This particular curry is a Nyonya adaptation of an Indian curry and it’s one of my all time favourites. The principle of all Chicken Kapitan […]

Green Beef Shank Curry with Noodles

This recipes was inspired by one of my favourite Thai dishes, Khao Soi – egg noodles with rich chicken curry. I wanted to use the same basic concept but utilise green curry instead of red and use meat instead of chicken. The Green curry of beef in this recipe is pretty authentic but it’s a […]

Vietnamese Duck Braised in Spiced Orange Juice

There have been times when dishes I’ve cooked have been blog worthy but never get posted because either in the rush of serving I forget to photograph the final dish or the pictures don’t turn out well, as was the case in this instance. But despite the dubious photo quality I decided it was too good […]

Kerala Beef Curry – Nadan Beef

We recently returned from a wonderful vacation to the Maldives where we had the opportunity to sample some amazing curries. The Maldives are only about 500 miles from the Southern tip of India and it’s normal for many of the resorts to have a variety of Indian inspired dishes on their menus. This is as close as we’ve […]

Malaysian Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce

Satay would have to be one of the most popular and well known South-East Asian dishes. I think the main draw, apart from being delicious, is that it’s mild enough to appeal to almost anyone and the accompanying peanut sauce is both exotic and comfortingly familiar. There are two main versions of satay, Indonesian and Malaysian […]

Fragrant Indian Lamb Curry

This curry was originally meant to be a lamb and okra curry as I had recently purchased some lovely okra from the local grocer. However, I misjudged how long the okra had been sitting in the fridge and they were well past their best. I was so disappointed – I not only hate waste but I […]

Palak Paneer – Indian Spinach & Cheese Side Dish

This might not be the prettiest dish in the world but it sure is one of the tastiest. I can’t resist ordering palak paneer anytime we go to an Indian restaurant and if it’s not on the menu, chances are I won’t return. I always imagined that palak paneer would be a difficult dish to […]

Rick Stein’s Chicken Vindail Curry

A few months ago I was walking around my local shopping mall and came across a large display of Rick Stein’s new cook book “Rick Stein’s India – In Search of the Perfect Curry”. This was the first time I’d seen the book and I’d also somehow missed watching the TV series that accompanied it. […]
