Malaysia Kitchen @ GFWS (Part 2: Allen Woo from LaksaMe Cooking Demonstration)

My day at the Good Food and Wine Show 2011, Melbourne continued with a delightful cooking demonstration by Allen Woo from LaksaMe. Allen was a great cooking demonstrator, he knew his Malaysian history and the story behind each unique ingredient as well as the story behind each dish! Look out MasterChef – this is one chef who will make sure the contestants know what they’re doing if you ever have him on the show for a Malaysian cooking challenge. Allen’s cooking demo was a lot more organised compared to Adam Liaw’s demonstration on the previous day. Not only did they … Continue reading Malaysia Kitchen @ GFWS (Part 2: Allen Woo from LaksaMe Cooking Demonstration)

Satay Boxing Chicken & "Thanksmas" Dinner Party

“Boxing Chicken” is a common dish served at dinner banquets in Malaysia. It is basically a marinated chicken wing with the meat pushed off the bone and up the end to form a “boxing glove” effect… thus the name. This is my version of the Boxing Chicken. Ingredients: 1kg chicken drumettes, pushed up. Satay sauce Breadcrumbs Peanut oil for deep frying Method: Marinate the chicken in satay sauce, refrigerate overnight. The next day, coat the marinated chicken in breadcrumbs and deep fry in hot peanut oil for a few minutes, just until it is browning. Place the fried chicken on … Continue reading Satay Boxing Chicken & "Thanksmas" Dinner Party

A Special Morning Tea for a Special Lady

This morning, we had a fully catered morning tea spread for a very special lady at work who has decided to retire and travel around Europe and hopefully Russia, and the rest of the world! Today was her last day, and so we’ve organised some food to be delivered to our office by Cafe Bettina in South Melbourne. As soon as the food arrived, the office started smelling really GOOD. After all, it’s not everyday that we get to be pampered with good food and I have especially told everyone not to have breakfast this morning because we will be … Continue reading A Special Morning Tea for a Special Lady

It was very packed and there were lots of people… and you can pretty much sample most foods from most stall, and sample most wine / liqueur which … Continue reading My Day at the Good Food and Wine Show Melbourne Saturday, 05-06-2010

All About Good Food & Good Company

The thing I love about today is that it was all about good food & good company. To protect the privacy of my friends, no names will be mentioned… but you will soon see from my photos that we had a FEAST enough to feed an entire soccer team! Ok maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit, but it truly was a lot of food and we had plenty of leftovers and everyone went home really, really full … 🙂 I hope this is not becoming a typical Sunday otherwise hubby and I will end up really fat really quick, lol. … Continue reading All About Good Food & Good Company
