Gourmet a'la Sugar


Remember how I used to post about food and ingredients and stuff? No? Me neither, it's been too long. So in an attempt to rectify this I present to you a post on "Stuff I've Cooked Lately That Will Totally Make You Drool".

To be honest with you I lost my cooking mojo a little while ago. But in the last 3/4 months I've been sifting through cook books, hunting for delectable ingredients and eating out at hot-spots around Melbourne town (whether I can afford to or not).

I will now share with you my journey's of FoodTown and hopefully if any of you are feeling low on cooking mojo you'll be inspired to invite your loved ones over for a tantilising journey for your tastebuds... or something something.


Stuff I've Cooked

Tom Yum Soup! Really all you need to do for this is go to you're local Little Veitnam find a grocer and go a little loco on all the wacky soup food there. You can get fish balls/cake, which is like a conglomeration of fish tasting stuff, with a rubbery texture... oh, c'mon, you love it. You can get fresh herbs out the wazoo. You should go, it's great. Oh, and while you're down there go to a bakery and get a grilled chicken/pork salad roll. Drool.

Spring Rolls! This sounds kinda impressive, but SO NOT. Once you're down with the rolling and the stuffing it's, like, so easy. All I do is make an Asian sauce, marinate chicken strips, roll, fry (mmm, fry). YUM!

Cheescake! See I can do more than Asian. This was for My Precious as a birthday cake. It's a baked cheesecake, BUT IT'S BAKED IN A WATER BATH! So it's silky as shit! I'm hoping there's still some around when I get home tonight, but I'm not holding my breath.

Steak and Porchini Mushroom Pie! I made this last night. So. Good. The porchini's hold their texture and taste delish, even after heavy cooking, so they were a good choice *pats back*. I'm totally over button mushrooms, btw. What is that? Foam? Not for me, thanks. I sloshed some red wine in the pie too, just because I can.


Ingredients I Dig This Week

Kaffir Lime Leaves

Sea salt

Fresh Chilli

Pumpkin

Rice

Who could say why? Just do.


Restaurants That I've Been To Of Late That Kick Arse

Claypots - mmm, fishy

Shoya - OK, so I'm going on Sunday, but I'm totally stoaked about it!

Pacific House - oh, you haven't heard of it? Well, it would be my advice to keep it that way... it's mine.

Taxi - so hip right now, but lacked a little love.


So? How 'bout it? Are you going to go home and cook up a storm? Go on. It'll make you happy and keep you warm on these chilly Melbournian nights. Plus if you cook for others, you don't have to do the dishes. It's the rule.

Wok on!

I find food talk sexier than sex talk. I don't know what a water bath is (whatever it was called) and I don't know how it bakes cheese cake but I want to know so much I, and I demand that next time I'm in Melbourne you cook for me. You can bring your hot date.

Kaffir lime leaves... Fuck yeah!
Those little things rock. Combine them with lemongrass and some pink beef - kaboom!
Bay leaves are SO over.

Find out how your company rates by using a little known rating system!

Is your company a Scam, Dud, Scheme, Fraud Or Good Opportunity?.

95% of the money-making opportunities on the internet have been worked to death or are not suitable to be marketed through the internet. How does your company and/or opportunity rate… I’ll leave it to you to decide if your service, product and/or money making opportunity falls in this category.

Hurry you may NOT be happy with what you will find!
