Coronation Chicken – bringing back a clasic!

I know, I know, I know…its been ages since I last posted, and I have to say I have no other excuse rather than not feeling overly inspired! Plus I have been trying to finish my post on Peru which I never seem to get ready with. I just have to stop being so picky and go ahead and publish it!

Anyway, here is an incredibly simple yet delicious recipe for a sandwich filling – Coronation Chicken! Yup, I am brining back an old classic! For those of you who are British or went to spent any time in Britain I am sure this will bring back some memories. Keep reading

Thai Chicken Sausage Rolls

These are my all time favourite sausage rolls – I got the recipe from my parent’s amah in Singapore who is an absolutely lovely woman and an exceptional cook! We have made these sausage rolls plenty of times together for parties, and they have always been a roaring success. Keep Reading

Cornish Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Coq au vin

For Christmas Eve ‘C’ and I decided to just be on our own and celebrate our first real Christmas together. We wanted to make something special for dinner, but neither of us felt too inclined on any of the usual Christmas fare – really, making a turkey is just too ambitious (and too gluttonous) for the both of us!

I was flipping through my recipe notebook and came across my mother’s recipe for Coq au vin – sold! This is one of the most simplest dishes to make, yet it sounds quite complex (possibly due to its French name!) but most importantly it’s incredibly delicious! If you think about it, there is no way it can’t be delicious…its a dish based on bacon, chicken, mushrooms and wine!! Keep Reading
