  • After Easter – What to Do With Leftover Ham? Chinese Food
    21 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    Got leftover ham from Easter dinner? Put it to use in these Chinese recipes using leftover ham. For example, Winter Melon Soup is made with ham and sweet winter melon, available year-round at Asian markets. (If winter melon is unavailable, you can substitute a whole cucumber). For a quick and easy meal during the week, try Curried Turkey (or Ham) Dinner: the recipe calls for cooked turkey but cooked ham can be substituted. And of course, there is always fried rice. Here is a basic fried rice recipe, made with cooked ham, peas and seasoned with oyster sauce. For something a bit more fancy, try…

  • Grow: Foolproof Hydroponic Gardening in a Tub

    16 Apr 2014 | 4:44 am
    If you think hydroponic gardening is difficult or expensive – you’re wrong! A simple tub (or even a milk jug) and a handful of easy-to-find (and cheap) products and you can hack yourself a hydroponics garden. I wanted to title this post “The Easiest Hydroponics Ever” or “Set It and Forget It Method” or “No Excuses Growing Method”. But Tub Hydroponics seems to be the most accurate name for it. Basically we are going to show you how to turn this collection of things: into these fabulous looking leafy vegetables. Anyone who knows me well,…

Right before our demo were chefs from Sarasota Bay Club cooking pork belly and seared giant sea scallops. This was the day that Nathan discovered pork belly. He would not leave the chef’s side and soon the chef recruited him to help serve the customers little samples. Every time the chef turned around, Nathan would sneak a little plate to devour. One for you….one for me….Smart kid. When it was our turn, we rocked it! We…

    Ahhh….the sad and lonely stump that gets thrown away after the prized crown is chopped off. BUT IT’S THE BEST PART OF THE BROCCOLI! Underneath that tough, fibrous outer layer of the stalk is the most TENDER part of the broccoli. It’s so tender, delicate and sweet that most of the time, I just eat it raw.

  • Yellow Chicken Curry and Roti

    22 Mar 2014 | 1:07 pm
    What roti meal would be complete without the traditional southern Thai curry that accompanies it! I covered roti making earlier (link), while your roti is resting you have a few hours spare to prepare the curry. There's enough curry here for the 16 rotis in the roti recipe. Since it's a southern curry, and since there's more Muslims in the south, it's naturally a chicken curry rather than pork, but you can also use pork. An optional but traditional side dish is the cucumber and onion relish. This is a nice thing to have, the sweet sour onion relish adds an extra dimension to the curry dish,…
  • Roti Plain, Egg or Sweet

    22 Mar 2014 | 11:54 am
    I've been visiting a local annual festival here in Phuket, and being in the South of Thailand, Roti is a staple of the food here. A roti is a cross between a pancake and flat bread, thin like a pancake but with a worked dough like a flat bread. When plain or with garlic it's good for dipping in curries, but it can be eaten sweet as a dessert or savory with egg and other fillings on a picnic. I'm making three variations, plain, with egg and the sweet version. All done in the style of a roti chef I've met, who taught me the roti style they use down here in the south!

  • Sweet Banana Rice Parcels ( Kao Tum Pad )

    These parcels are a delicious and slightly sweet combination of sticky rice and bananas. If you can, use red bananas, a sweeter type of banana that makes an interesting contrast colour, although you can use yellow bananas as I've done for this photograph. For presentation it is better to wrap these in banana leaves, but you can also use tinfoil.

          Fırın (wood-oven bakeries), I learned today, are a relatively new phenomenon, at least in the southeastern Turkish city of Şanlıurfa (Urfa for short). "When I was a child almost every family had a small oven in their courtyard, or neighbors shared a single oven. At my house we had hot bread every single morning," an Urfali in his late forties told me.      Nowadays few Turks living in cities like Urfa make their own bread. Most neighborhoods boast at least one -- and often several…

    So here are the rest of the pictures from our trip to Canada this winter. The biggest event (besides Christmas, which I covered here) was the ice storm, which left everything encased in ice for well over a week. Not to mention thousands of people left without elecricity for several days over Christmas. We were lucky and kept our power, but two of our trees were damaged. This is the elm in our front yard, and what looks like bushes beneath it is a pile of branches that snapped off. This tree will be fine, but it produced a surprising about of debris. The corkscrew willow in our backyard…

    We celebrated Christmas with my family in Canada last year, a first for Shuma and the first in 15 years for me. Christmas Eve began with our traditional lasagne dinner, then Shuma checked out the tree and all the Christmas loot (we'd been home for almost a week and it had been a daily battle to stop him from opening them all, but he showed restraint on Christmas Eve). Then Baboo, my dad, started a fire. And Shuma and I opened our Christmas Eve boxes and changed into our new Christmas jammies, then after a reading of A Visit From St Nicholas we hung up our stockings. One stocking for each…

    Here is this year's nengajo (new year postcard). For the first time ever it doesn't feature this year's zodiac animal (which is the horse), because Shuma doesn't pose well (I did buy a stuffed horse but he wouldn't sit still with it for pictures) and there is a law in Japan that says once you have children you must include a picture of them on your nengajo. So it's just him. He's looking at an airplane by the way, a tiny one way up high that nobody but a little kid would notice. Anyway, wishing a very Happy New Year to all of my readers!

And it's mostly just pictures, I have to hurry up and finally get this posted because in a few days I'll be back in Canada. "You're going back again?

But in July Shuma started going to hoikuen (daycare) and I had to make a bento for him, and he lost his appetite during the adjustment period and wouldn't eat his lunch. Didn't matter what I put in it, he wouldn't eat it. He's a bit picky- he doesn't have any foods that he absolutely never ever will eat, but his tastes change frequently and…

    The cover story in the April issue of Groove is about the rise of sandwiches in Seoul (p. 36). Any expat here has experienced that odd creature that is the Korean sandwich. It’s where sandwich art goes to die. Ham, cheese, and strawberries. BLT with tartar sauce. Today, I saw at Paris Croissant a new fish sandwich that had a fried fish fillet, lettuce, tartar sauce, and… sweet bulgogi sauce. It’s like Korean sandwich makers get 60-80% of the sandwich just right and think, “Now, how can I totally fuck this up?” We even have a Facebook group called Sandwich Lovers…

    Most Thais are familiar with khanom jeen nam ngiaw (ขนมจีนน้ำเงี้ยว) the northern Thai staple of a pork- and tomato-based broth served over thin, fresh rice noodles. Yet few are aware of the variations the dish can take across the region. In Chiang Mai, nam ngiaw is often rich and oily, and is supplemented with the dried flowers of the cotton tree; in Chiang Rai the dish is hearty and meaty, and there’s even a variant made with beef; and in Mae Hong Son, khao sen, as it’s known there, tends to be thin and tart with very little meat. Even Phrae, a…
  • Better than Bangkok

    16 Mar 2014 | 9:37 pm
    I had always avoided Bangkok/central Thai-style food up in Chiang Mai. The few dishes I’d had weren’t exactly great, and anyway, how could I not take advantage of all the wonderful local stuff? But it appears that all I needed was a bit of pointing in the right direction, and recently I encountered two restaurants that do dishes traditionally associated with Bangkok, but, well, better. Phat kaphrao, minced meat fried with chili, garlic and the eponymous holy basil, is available on just about every street corner in Bangkok. It’s always cheap, salty and spicy, but almost never…

    It’s heating up in Bangkok, and when this happens Thais have traditionally reached out to two very different sweet snacks of Chinese origin in an effort to cool down. Tao huay (เต้าฮวยน้ำขิง), pictured above, is a unique combination of thin slices of a type of very soft bean curd pudding and a hot, spicy, ginger broth. The dish is garnished with crispy deep-fried bits of dough and a dash of raw cane sugar (น้ำตาลทรายแดง). Hot, spicy broth may seem a counter-intuitive snack choice in sweltering weather, but Chinese belief entails that…

    Good northern Thai-style food is hard enough to find in Bangkok. Yet a decent bowl of khao soi, the curry noodle soup that’s quite possibly the region’s most famous dish, is probably the most elusive thing of all. There are a few places in town that serve passable versions of khao soi. But most of Bangkok’s bowls are creamy, bland approximations of the stuff up north. Those that do the best versions tend to have a direct link with Chiang Mai, which is the case with Khao Soi Chiang Mai. The original owner is a native of eponymous city, who, more than 40 years ago, started…

  • Random Picture #210

    23 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    There was a time in the 1970s when pyramid power was a big deal. People would construct or buy little pyramid structures to sit in and meditate or masturbate or something or other to bring them more power. That sort of happiness is parodied to some extent in a Seinfeld episode in which a natural "healer" or holistic practitioner treats George for tonsillitis by having him drink some

    18 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am

Of course, that was true when I lived in Japan as well, and it didn't stop me from writing about such places there. My mind is a strange and inconsistent place at times. Nijiya is a small chain of markets that almost exclusively carries

    Bananas are one of the most accessible types of fruit in Japan. They're cheap and you can buy them nearly anywhere including conveninece stores. Of course, they tend to not be very tasty or sweet compared to some of the bananas you can get in other places (at least the Tokyo ones). I'm guessing this Starbucks concoction is going to be quite a bit sweeter and tastier than the standard imported

The really bad, painful infection I had has finally (mostly) cleared up, so I’m not reliant on heavy duty painkillers anymore. The bad news is that, my actual health condition is a bit worse than the infection. Which means that I’m going to have to start a course of radiation therapy again. But not to worry anyone too much…since I am now getting regular checkups (unlike the last time when you know, I stupidly tried to tough it out…

    I haven't seen dim sum buffet for some time.  Over the Easter holidays, I notice this offer from a nearby hotel, so I give it a try.  The overall experience is not bad, but still some rooms for improvement.In fact, buffet is not quite accurate, should be one price, eat all you can.  To enable eaters to eat more varieties, the portion sizes are generally smaller than the ones from the a la carte menu.  We can even order the exact number of pieces for certain items.  The two of us had 18 variations and totalling over 20 dishes.In terms of satisfaction, I grade the dim…

So I took my sister there today for a lunch.  The place was reasonably nice, not too crowded or noisy like many other dim sum restaurants in Wanchai.  However the price is quite expensive.  There are many things in life that quality not associated with money.  Today's lunch is an example.  I can't say it's bad, but there are rooms for improvement in relation to the money they are…

    After reading the dan dan noodle recipe post, Jay emailed earlier this week asking for assistance with a noodle dish that he was trying to replicate from a Bay Area restaurant named Crouching Tiger (where’s the Hidden Dragon?). He shared his sauce recipe with me and asked me to help him tweak it.

    Here are two staples that I use for making dumplings and Vietnamese food: wheat starch and rice paper. I employ the former for dim sum such as har gow and the latter for hand rolls or fried cha gio imperial rolls. I suffer allergies but not many food-related ones so I've not thought much about cross-contamination issues in the manufacturing process. Back in February, Mikhaela prompted me to think a little harder about them. I didn't have answers to her questions until today. Even so, I don’t have totally solid answers.

    Meatless Mondays is a great idea but I don’t do it. I’m a mostly meatless lunch person. On the days when my husband is at work, I often make myself a vegetarian mid-day snack. A fried egg with leftover rice and some Viet pickles is among my personal favorites. So is banh mi with tofu or egg. This week while rummaging through the hinterlands of my pantry (a deep hallway closet), I found a five-pound box of Quon Yick dried Chinese noodles. I went to the factory years ago to discuss dumpling wrappers with the owner because the company is one of the oldest of its kind in the Los Angeles area.

    I had been meaning to update this recipe for a while. Whenever I teach Intro to Sichuan cooking classes, we focus on simple and easy-to-love stir-fry dishes such as Kung Pao Chicken, Mapo Tofu, and Dan Dan Noodles. But anyone who has spent enough time in good Sichuan restaurants is bound to eventually try a dish listed as Chongqing chicken, Sichuan chicken with chilis, wok-fried chicken, or a number of similar names. (Lazi jiding is the name in Mandarin.) And inevitably in every class, when I go around the room during the intro ice-breaker and have students list their favorite Sichuan dish of…

My friends, who grew up in West Malaysia, and who knew this dish well, wanted to introduce this dish to us. My friend JY told us that kacang pool (as it is called in Malaysia) was derived from the Middle Eastern dish known as foul medammas, which was made from fava beans.It was served with a sunny side egg and a side of buttered toast. All of that was great to sop up the runny egg and sauce of this dish. That day, as I was eating it, I thought it reminded me very much…

The signature dish, Totan Ramen, was a "light tonkotosu" that was more like garlic-oil flavored water.Stay tuned, the bad-ramen-in-Matsue commentary…
  • しながわ (Shinagawa in Ikebukuro)

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:00 pm
    Shinagawa is an offshoot of nearby BASSO. If the connection is any indication, this should be an excellent bowl. The homemade noodles from this group are solid.Your standard chukasoba. At 1000 yen for the special bowl (extra pork, egg, menma, and nori) it is a bit on the pricey side. Worth it?Despite the rest of the ramen world raving about this bowl, I wasn't impressed. Not a lot of impact, and a huge amount of hot oil on the top. Yeah, the noodles were excellent, but I wanted them in a different soup.The niboshisoba might be a better match, but I won't be going back to find…
  • 炭家 (Sumiya in Nakano)

    14 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    I have heard that there are around 9000 places to eat ramen in Tokyo. This is, of course, counting everywhere ramen is served. Chain ramen shops, family restaurants (i.e. Denny's), Chinese dives, and in this case, Korean barbecue. Usually these outlying ramen shops don't make it to Ramen Adventures, because, well, they tend to suck.Sumiya, a nondescript Korean barbecue place a few stops out of Shinjuku, proved me wrong.The word 〆 (shime) can be added to the front of a menu item to indicate that it is something to be eaten after the rest of the food. In this case, the shimenoramen in…

    ソラノイロ Salt and MushroomThe 2nd official shop of long-time favorite Soranoiro continues along the same lines as the original. A few solid standards and some unique bowls as well.Mushrooms are a theme, both in the decor and the bowls.The chef's station is chock full of bits and pieces. To be specific, the regular menu offers a niboshi shoyu, a shio, a mushroom veggie soba, and a niku soba. That is just the regular menu. Expect limited bowls to be a normal thing.The bowl of standard shio was, without a doubt, great. I'm, in general, not a huge shio fan, so I'm sure the rest of the menu…
  • アジアン麺 (Asian Noodle in Nishi-Shinjuku)

    7 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    I pass by this shop every time I go to the supermarket. Asian Noodle isn't really ramen, per se. More of a thai noodle place.But with an eclectic mix of Thai and Japanese (harumaki rolls along side fried chicken along side a goya-potato salad) this shop gets a spot on the site.Awful.There was a mix of thin rice noodles and thick wheat noodles in my bowl. Not a combination you want to be slurping. And it only got worse, as the noodles dissolved into various states of sogginess.One and done!東京都渋谷区本町3-41-12Tokyo, Shibuya-ku, Honmachi 3-41-12Closest station:…
