Soy Braised Mushroom Noodles

This is a big bowl of comforting goodness. I love mushrooms in any shape or form but when they’re braised in a sticky soy-rich sauce and paired with soft noodles they really become a thing of beauty. This is an easy dish to prepare and substantial enough to stand on its own as a main […]

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 […]

Egg Fried Rice

When we eat at Chinese restaurants I always order plain steamed rice. As much as I adore fried rice I find plain rice a better accompaniment to all the rich dishes that are normally ordered. So for me fried rice is usually something I make at home as I like to eat it on its […]

This is the most fantastic dough recipe! It’s so simple to make and yields perfect, soft, buttery bread every time. You can create a lot of different recipes from the basic dough, including cinnamon and raisin buns, dinner rolls and hamburger buns. The bread created from this dough is called milk bread and is very […]

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 […]

Lime & Red Curry Chicken Wings

These scrummy chicken wings are similar to Buffalo wings but with a South-East Asian twist. As with buffalo wings the cooked chicken wings, which are baked here instead of deep-fried, are coated in a butter sauce that is enriched with lime juice and Thai red curry paste. They’re sticky, spicy and very addictive. These wings […]
