  • Bowl of Funk: A Little Memoir on Texture

    2 Dec 2014 | 12:00 am
      The range of foods I can process has widened after so long in Vietnam. As a child, I had fairly typical aversions to certain vegetables, none of which have continued into my adult life. For no apparent reason that I can recall, cauliflower, green beans and brussel sprouts engendered the strongest ill-feeling. I vividly remember once lining my gums with a few remaining beans I simply could not get down, excusing myself from the table and spitting them into the toilet. Yes, I grew up in one of those households where you sat at the table until every last morsel was in you. Animal,…

  • Aervana Review & Giveaway

    24 Jul 2015 | 10:57 am
    Aervana is one of the most innovative wine products I’ve seen – combining the functionality of an aerator and a no-drip pour. We tried so many different wine aerators – from the classic wide, curvy body of a decanter to a strange magnetic powered aerator machine that swirled your wine. We like the Aervana. Sure, it’s another battery-operated wine gizmo, but its innovative design allows for sediment to stay where it belongs – at the bottom of the wine bottle. The unit pumps up the wine, adds in the air before allowing the wine to pour out into your glass. I like…

These days, Oster is known for their kitchen small appliances, and is now owned by Sunbeam.

  • Hot Snail Quest

    17 Jul 2015 | 9:09 am
    Hanoi is baking in hot summer sun and there hasn't been much rain about this year to take the edge off the heat. A savage storm or two but long periods with not a drop. The city population seeks respite in the breeze coming off a lake or the down draught from wind hitting the taller buildings. The public swimming pools are seething aquariums in the late afternoons; all neon swimsuits, pitchy kid-noise and chlorine vapour. There was deafening cicada clicking earlier in the summer. And coughing frogs now. Dry coughing frogs. So as we all wait for rain, I might as well eat a hot bowl of…
  • The Stuff in the Market

    10 Dec 2014 | 11:53 pm
    The wet markets in South East Asia are shrines to food culture. Food is built up into displays, towers and installations to admire, catch the eye and tempt. It's colourful. Limes, chilies, dragon fruits, persimmons and hibiscus flowers project a prism of riches almost vulgar. It gives olfactory pleasure, too. Inhaling over Vietnam's herb basket gives a rush of zingy green crack. In this part of the world, we can feel food without being compelled to buy. Rub pearly grains of rice in your fingertips. Prod pork. There is a kind of worship or fanaticism going on. Ritual most definitely.

  • Danang Seafood Barn

    13 Aug 2014 | 2:57 am
    I like Danang. Whoever is in charge down there is making a nice city. Compared to Hanoi or Saigon it's a tad sterile, lacking that street-level frenzy and coating of old-world grime. But the traffic flows uncongested for the most part. Roads are wide, lines are clean, city planning seems to have foresight. Buildings gleam, the marble statues by the Han River are polished and the river water itself is actually almost blue. Good air quality is assured by Danang's breezy seaside location. It makes a nice change. As does what is on the table. Like the local holiday-makers from Hanoi and…

    On our travels, we can meekly sit down at an uncrowded table and eat mediocre food. In fact, to us it might register as good food. How would we know? One principle that we espouse on our street food tours of Hanoi - when navigating unfamiliar food terrain on one's own, seek out places where the locals are shoulder to shoulder - served us well during our week in Seoul earlier this year. We've become quite adept at observing the prevailing culture around a busy eatery, mimicking local behaviour and confidently smiling our way into a queue or onto a bench. The "I'll have what…

    Rice cakes are a pain, the easiest way to get them is to simply buy rice cakes in packets and simply decorate them, yourself!. But if you really want to make your own rice cakes, its not that difficult. I got a quick lesson from a rice cake vendor at Paklok Food Festival recently, you can see him in the video. He makes them from sticky-rice, the most important thing is to dry the rice cake thoroughly before frying.

  • Bla-o Gang-Luang (Yellow Curry Tuna)

    11 May 2015 | 5:21 am
    I'm using small tuna for this, but a meaty white fish cut into steaks is a more common variation. Whatever fish you find at the local market that's fresh and meaty can be used, as long as it doesn't have a strong flavor of its own. The fish soaks up the curry flavors and added bamboo or coconut root soaks up the juice and provides much needed bulk to the curry. The flavor you are aiming for is sour and spicey. Sour comes from the tamarind juice (tamarind paste mashed up in water so the water becomes sour, use the water in the dish to flavor the curry). The spicy comes from the curry paste…

I've made a Korean Barbecue before, it's a meat barbecue where the juices run off into a soup tray around the outside. When I saw they had good thick heavy brass barbecue pans, I decided to shop! It's time to upgrade my pitiful aluminum Korean Barbecue pan to something more solid that will smooth out the heat better.

Food here on the island is not 'weird' or 'bizarre' (though I suppose duck blood cubes, a component of some versions of curry mee might be considered 'out there'). So when I head out the door in the morning I never have to worry that today's walk will be all about how many…

Lahmacun, if you don't know it, is basically a wood oven-cooked flatbread with a thin shmear of spicy meat paste.     'Turkish pizza', some call it -- but why? Yes, lahmacun and pizza share a composition of dough with  topping. They are both baked. There the similarity ends.     I understand the desire to make familiar…

    IMPORTANT We have decided to postpone the Cajun pop-up until next week (July 18-19). There will be no event this weekend (July 11-12). One down, five more to go–if things go well. We are doing a series of six pop-ups in a row each weekend this summer at the Mercure Ambassador Gangnam’s rooftop bar, which has one of the most gorgeous secret views of the city. This is technically my third pop-up. The first one I did with Sarah Lee back in 2012, which was one of the first independent pop-up restaurants in Seoul. Then I teamed up with Simon Lee for the Game of Thrones pop-up in 2013.

There are a lot more restaurants in there than before, including General Banjum. They are constantly tweaking their menu, monitoring it based on diner…

    I admit, I don't come across too many recipes for sardines. I love them; the savory, soft fish in tangy chili tomato sauce. I usually eat them the way my mom served them when I was growing up -- reheating the sardines in a small pan on the stove top and adding a few dashes of fish sauce for flavor. Then, I'd either stuff them into toasted Vietnamese-French bread or use the bread to mop up the

  • Chilled grilled eggplant soup for a hot summer's day

    20 Jul 2015 | 8:11 am
    It's midsummer, and daytime temperatures are hovering in the mid to high 30s °C (or 95-100 °F) around these parts. Sure it's a dry heat, since it is in Provence, but it's still pretty hard to bear, especially since we don't have air conditioning. This means that it's really hard to even contemplate standing in front of a hot stove cooking things. So I try to do things in small batches. For instance, we are eating a lot of eggplants (aubergines) because they are in season, delicious and so cheap - around 1 euro for 6 to 8 small to medium ones. It's a bit hard to come up with different ways…

In the evening, I took a break from making dinner to call her up to wish her happy birthday. “Why are you calling? You already sent a card and gift,” she said. “I read that it’s better to eat dinner around 6pm so you can digest better. You should be cooking and eating dinner now. You and Rory eat tend to eat late.” “But we also stay up late and wake up late,” I said. Moms can be hard to please and over the years, I’ve come to realize that simple things tickle mine the most.

    I made a peanut noodle salad for a potluck luncheon last Saturday and ended up with about a pound leftover cilantro. There were a lot of stems with little root portions attached and immediately, my mind went to something Thai. In particular, this spicy mixture which I’ve been making since the early 1990s. The original recipe came from Nancie McDermott’s handy Real Thai cookbook. There’s no chile because as Nancie wrote, this is an old style seasoning mixture that the Thais used in cooking before chiles arrived in Southeast Asia. The heat came from peppercorns and garlic. Everything was…
  • Berry Cherry Galette Recipe

    Andrea Nguyen
    16 Jul 2015 | 2:41 pm
    There was a hamburger-bun size piece of all-butter pastry dough leftover from the lattice top strawberry pie that I baked last weekend. My initial plan was to roll it out, cut it into thin sticks, brush with milk and sprinkle it with sugar and bake into crisp cookies. I couldn’t commit so I put the pie dough into the freezer. Last night, we had friends over for dinner and I needed a fast and easy dessert that was also kind of special. I thawed the pie dough for a galette – a freeform filled crusty cake. It doesn’t require a pie pan and even if you don’t get things right, it’ll still…
  • Perfect Strawberry Pie Recipe

    Andrea Nguyen
    14 Jul 2015 | 11:27 am
    It started when my husband spotted the strawberry sale: a kilo container of organic Driscoll’s strawberries. Driscoll’s is a large, national concern that happens to farm strawberries in our locality. “You normally pay $4 for one basket of berries at the farmer’s market,” Rory said. “Why not give these a try. The price is the same.” Friends were coming for dinner on Saturday night and my first inclination was to make strawberry shortcake. But on Saturday morning, I tasted the berries in my breakfast muesli and they had great aroma but meh flavor. Shortcake was not going use up 2…

    So...some exciting news! Two months ago I traveled to Denver to film an online class series with Craftsy on making favorite Chinese restaurant dishes at home.  Because I'm frequently asked by readers who live outside NY about classes away from the city, this was the perfect way to reach home cooks all around the country and the world.After a ton of work prep work, filming, and post production review with the wonderful team in Denver, I'm happy to announce that Chinese Takeout Favorites, my very first online course, launched last week. In this course, you'll learn as…

    Happy Chinese New Year! Unlike years past when I've gone home to Boston, I'll be ringing in the Year of the Sheep (or is it ram, or goat?) here in New York. For most of next couple weeks I will be teaching and catering dinner parties and fitting in a dim sum outing here and there. But last week, I started the eating part a bit early at the WNYC offices in Tribeca with Dan Pashman, host of The Sporkful, in a mini-collaboration project. For this week's episode (which includes some great soundbites from Eddie Huang about Fresh off the Boat) and the Notorious MSG) Dan also tries a…

    Hi again!I know, I know. It's been a while since I've posted a new recipe. Between running Plate & Pencil, teaching, and putting on Tangra Spring, I've been a little short on time, to put it mildly. Sadly, things like creating new recipes can sometimes go on the back burner.Also, this winter sure was long, wasn't it? I think the lack of sunshine, the frigid April that felt like March, and rainy May that felt like April made most of us feel a little less than inspired in the kitchen. Sometimes all I wanted was soup, spaghetti, pizza, soup, spaghetti, pizza, rinse, repeat. Anything that…

This Korean breakfast sandwich, sold by street vendors in cities, is commonly called tost-u (toast) or gaeran tost-u (egg toast). It's not that different from an American egg sandwich, but the addition of cabbage and a sweet dusting of brown sugar are tasty Korean additions.

    To be honest, I'm not sure how I ended up here.I tried to go to this shop, in the heart of Fukushima City, but they were closed for the night. I also tried to go to the Filipino show club next door, but was told that they don't accept gaijins.Somehow ended up at a bar named after my drinking buddy's boyfriend, where another customer marked his favorite shop on my map. If I recall, he then guided us there, through the bustling streets of downtown Fukushima.Rajanmen, a spicy, Chinese style dish.It was spicy and hot and thick and sweet.

Rock'anDo makes their own in house, blending in ユーグレナ, also known as Euglenids, a kind of single-cell organism similar to algae. Considered by some to be a kind of superfood, this will make a bowl of ramen with a side of 抹茶割 (shochu mixed with green tea) seem like a healthy meal.I was first clued in to Rock'anDo when they showed up at the recent Ramen Girls Festival.

Summer temperatures soar into the high 30s, even hitting the 40s on the worst of days. And while I despise the heat (and the humidity!), it means that hiyashichuka is back.Hiyashi means cool, and limited release cold noodle dishes let chefs have a little fun, making things that they normally wouldn't keep on their menu.I asked Kuroki-san if he would have a limited summer ramen.

But, like most newer shops serving shinasoba, this a wholly Japanese take on noodles. And a very unique one at that.Certainly well-regarded by the usual suspects, what makes this one so special?To start with, the soup is a one-off creation.

  • Oat and Cranberry Chili Bars (No Bake)

    30 Jul 2015 | 11:57 pm
    Recently for an unknown reason I found myself skipping dinner. First it was only once in a while which then upped to 4-5 times a week. As a result of skipping dinner, I felt very weak upon waking up and needed to eat something immediately.Finally, I decided that I needed to eat something even if it is a light snack. First I had a go at the store bought sugary energy bars, but I was not satisfied with the daily dose of sugar I was getting every night in the form of these little cuties.I have made energy bars with sugar a couple of times and they turn out fairly good, but again…
  • Couscous and Vegetable Cutlets

Couscous is very versatile, in fact, it can be made into a tajine or served as a salad and it's even used in soups.☻☻☻It marries perfectly well with a variety of flavours and is really easy to prepare. My favourite couscous dish is a salad made with summer vegetables, which is highly satiating and delicious.☻☻ We all have our likes and dislikes regarding food and drink, unfortunately, my kids…

    ☻☻☻I have had a crush for this chocolate cake for quite a while and finally when I decided to make it, I found out that to my utter disappointment there was no chocolate and neither any cocoa powder in my pantry.☻☻☻☻This often happens to me as I have a short term memory so I tend to forget more things most of the time while I am compiling my shopping list.☻So what do I do now? When I decide to make something and I lack one or two ingredients, I have to look for substitutes, some additional drill for my poor neurons.☻☻☻I took a peep into each and every kitchen cabinet and…
