Modified Hong Kong style Borscht Soup

In this cold cold weather, nothings better than an amazing warm hearty vegetable soup!! One of the very first recipes we both learnt prior to even meeting each other was the Borscht soup, but more towards the Hong Kong style. It was such a coincidence that we both loved this soup so incredibly. Took us…

Braised Chicken with Chestnuts

Over the past few weeks, we have been bulk cooking this dish and we’ve been absolutely loving it! This is a traditional Shanghainese cuisine and it is a sweet, warm and comforting food, that is perfect in this chilly weather at the moment. To begin, prepare the chestnuts. Place them flat side down on board….

Pork and Vegetable Chinese Stir-fry

Want a stir-fry that you can’t find in restaurants? Try this! It has a heap load of ingredients, so lot’s to prepare! This amazing colourful dish brings me back to the time when I had home economics cooking back in school as a subject, and I was given a project to create a dish of…

Chinese Watercress Soup

I always have fond memories of having a large bowl of my mother’s authentic Asian soups going along with a bowl of rice before heading off to school. She would simmer it for hours and the aromatic herbs and spices would linger in the house for days. Out of all those homemade soups, Sai Yeung…

Singapore Chilli Crab

In Australia, we can definitely find the freshest seafoods, however, somehow, the best seafood dishes we have ever had are in Singapore! One of our favourites of all time is the famous Singapore chilli crab. We have been looking forward to make this for so long! For this recipe, we used the Queensland mud crab….

First thing to know about Phở  is not what it is… it’s how do we even say it right? Fuh! Prior to coming to Melbourne in year 2005, I have actually never heard of Pho before. I’m guessing Vietnamese food probably wasn’t that popular yet in Singapore then. However, over the years, I personally feel…

Californian Superfood Salad!

Time for us to eat healthier! Over the past few months, we’ve been cooking and binge eating non-stop, we’ve gained so much weight! For us to resume to our exciting food adventures, we have to go on a diet for a few weeks and this means … more SALAD! Yes, eating leafy greens ain’t as…

Homemade Peri peri sauce

When we see or hear peri-peri, we immediately think of Nandos chicken or something really hot, nice and spicy! Peri peri sauce which is a very hot sauce made of hot chilli peppers is apparently Portuguese-African in origin. During our uni-days, we would regularly dine in Nandos ordering a whole chicken and their legendary peri-peri…

Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Roast Pork)

Char Siu, a red sweet and salty BBQ marinated roast pork, is an iconic Cantonese roast meat and served as thin sliced strips on top of noodles and rice dishes or just simply packed in a takeaway container for supper with family or friends. It is definitely one of the first top foods we would…

Claypot Eggplant

Eggplant is probably not the most popular (culinary) vegetable, but in our opinion, anything can taste delicious as long as it is cooked right. The Asian dish ‘Fish fragrant eggplant (yu xiang qie zi)‘ is definitely one of our top favourite way of eating eggplant, so we must learn this dish! It’s spicy, fragrant and…
