Smoked Salmon Sashimi with Watermelon & Wasabi Sorbet

Published on: October 7, 2013

 This was the first dish from my tasting menu.  The key feature of this recipe is the watermelon and wasabi sorbet.  It is something I have wanted to do for a long time, ever since having wasabi ice cream a couple of years ago at Whatley Manor (probably the best meal I’ve ever had).  With that as my inspiration I felt that this would make for an excellent amuse bouche.  I love sashimi but it is[…]

 One of the first times I had Pork Belly was at a Chinese restaurant following a funeral (I know, not exactly where you would expect to have memorable food experiences) but I was about 10 or 12 years old and I couldn’t get enough of this pork belly.  Crispy skin, melt in the mouth fat, moist and tender pork meat, no little salt and the taste of those spices; It took several more years to[…]

 I chose this dish to be my first ever cooking blog appearance as it is the perfect sum up of how I cook most of the time.  Simple, easy and hassle-free.  I fell in love with this dish the very first time I had it in a Thai restaurant years ago.  Of course at that time, I had no idea how to cook it.  Most of my recipes are a result of = online research+personal[…]

 I first made this dish a year or two ago, I had planned to do something with Sea Bass but couldn’t get any, instead I spotted a deal on whole, fresh Sea Bream.  I had never used it before and I since discovered that it’s actually a family of fish so you can get a fairly wide variety under the name “Sea Bream”.  Regardless of what Sea Bream you actually get they all have a[…]

 I have to admit, I’ve not had much Thai food.  It’s one of those cuisines that I’ve just never gotten around to properly exploring.  I should make a bigger effort because most Thai dishes that I’ve tried have been really good.  Pineapple rice (served in half a pineapple) has got to be one of the best ways to do fried rice!  At some point I’m going to have to come up with my own recipe[…]

 I love a good burger, but it has to be a good one.  By that I mean using real mince, not the sand blasted beef bone stuff.  It has to have some quality cheese, processed slices just won’t do!  But above all it can’t have any beef tomato in it.  Nothing ruins a burger more than a slice of beef tomato.  It’s so bad, that everytime a “chef” puts a beef tomato in a burger,[…]
