“Really pleased, and it was a privilege to have been invited to the Mediacorp Channel 8 show, Just Cook It! 一起来下厨. Next episode, featuring Chinese Lunar New Year dishes, will be aired this coming Wednesday (25th Jan)!”
Just Cook It! will allow the audience to learn 8 dishes all at once, allowing you to enter the world of culinary secrets! Each episode, 10 culinary experts will be invited, while 3 of them will prepare their expertise on the spot, respectively “Celebrity cuisine”, “Novelty cuisine” and “Signature dishes”.
“It’s not your ordinary Kou Rou (steamed pork belly) dish.”
I have my conventional recipe for Kou Rou dish. And here, I was to bring my pork Belly dish to a new level, with the necessary festive twist. Simply to prepare it as one of our Chinese Lunar New Year dishes!
I would like to consider this an entirely different pork belly dish. Not only the side ingredients were adapted for auspicious purpose, the recipe was just different. Cai po, Miso paste, mirin, etc were used here.. Weird? It turned out so well, in fact!
“Super light & fluffy scrambled egg on toast, breakfast, anyone?”
This is definitely the simplest, yet not so easy kind of egg cooking. To cook perfect scrambled egg, the end product must be moist as well as feeling light and fluffy. Other than the control of the fire temperature, there is one thing I have to add, to make it much easier to achieve the desired texture of the scrambled egg. Milk. Ratio of just 1 tablespoon of fresh milk to 2 large eggs.
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon of fresh milk
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 tablespoon of cooking oil or butter
“You are busy, and yet, yearning for delicious & heart warming meal.. here’s something you have to learn up, my simple quick fix rice meal. Not the lazy, but for the smart ones!”
I would say Japanese inventions are brilliant, including their contribution to creating flavorful yet simple food. When we learned to combine the delicious Chinese food with smart Japanese food, what we often get would be delicious smarty food! It’s just a saying, not limited to…. Lol.
Coming back to my golden fried rice, it’s not anything new to cook up this golden fried rice where each grain would be coated with the yellowish yolk to present a plateful of “golden” appearance dish. However, if you ask me, I wouldn’t be bored to add interesting elements to this wonderful goodness, and bring it to a whole new level of tasting.
