We hosted Small Group this past week over at our home and I got the chance to finally make Momofuku’s Bo Ssam. It truly is a porky feast!! I’ve been totally obsessed with David Chang’s cookbook… I’ve made the pork belly buns multiple times this month and I finally got around to tackling the ramen […]

Crispy Roasted Pork Belly

One of my favorite dishes to order at the traditional Cantonese BBQ Places is the roast duck and the roast pork. Usually they hang up a full pig in the window, hacking off portions when people order it. The downside to this method is that the pig is out in the window until it has […]

Momofuku Pork Belly Buns…. and Chicharones!

I was on a cooking binge… and made a bunch of stuff. I made two braised dishes for my Daring Kitchen Challenge (whoops! Still need to post about it!!!). I also attempted to make David Chang’s Momofuku Pork Belly Buns. It required me to work with pork belly… which was a new cut of meat […]

Cooking Blogs and My Cooking Binge

Our kitchen got a nice makeover in the past few weeks. Last year, Hubs replaced our refrigerator… so the fugly faded fridge now is moved into this room-converted-from-the-garage… which leads me on a whole new rant. We live in Silicon Valley. People here are generally engineers…. especially in the area we live. I’m willing to […]

Mentaiko Spaghetti

So according to a certain reader who claims himself as my #1 reader and fan, I did too many iPhone posts in a row. I actually don’t blame him since the iPhone pictures don’t look that stunning. Time to bust out the dSLR and start snapping more regularly. So this post is dedicated to that […]

Oyster Stew

Wow… I’m really bad at uploading my pictures. Since I found my memory card, I also found the pictures from the oyster stew I made from the oyster trip Sam and I took a few months ago. I shucked a bunch of oysters before we left and took them back in my previous ziplock faux […]

Daring Cook May 2011 – Gumbo!

So while prerusing food blogs, I kept coming across people blogging about doing the Daring Kitchen challenges. I finally mustered up my courage in April to join. Ironically I signed up hours before the Daring Chef deadline. After I got my confirmation email, I logged onto the forums to find out what the May challenge […]

Fleur de Sel Caramels!

I finally got around to trying my hand at making caramels. I had some really nice heavy cream leftover from making a strawberry whipped cream for my trifle so I dug up a recipe I saved awhile ago. Whenever I hear the word trifle, I think about the meat and berry trifle that Rachel made […]

Sesame Oil Chicken w/ Somen

Growing up in a really Taiwanese family, we ate a lot of black sesame oil dishes. Mom would saute ginger in sesame oil to infuse it before cooking all sorts of goodies with it… such as chicken, pork, gizzards, liver… just kidding about the liver part. I do however love a good plate full of […]
