Visual Gastronomy – River Cottage Veg Everyday

I want to kick off theme week; vege week by sharing what inspired me to do this theme, sure it’s not an uncommon theme and definitely very widespread in terms of ingredients but I recently watched the whole season of River Cottage (RC) Veg Everyday hosted by none other than the charming Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (HFW). […]

Visual Gastronomy – Rick Stein and his many conquests….

Rick and his ever faithful dog, Chalky Rick Stein is such a delight to listen to. Some might take his videos as too much banter of an old man but I personally enjoy absorbing all his quotes and quirky anecdotes, how he reference certain lines in a book to mirror the food, lifestyle, people or […]

Rick Stein and Keith Floyd flourished around the same time together to become established chefs. Rick Stein also made an appearance in Malaysia and claimed his favourite dish was […]

Visual Gastronomy – Jamie At Home

French Onion Soup

I have this long ingrained love for onions and its family of all kinds. Onions are the most widely used vegetable and the most versatile. If you’ve been following the Iron Chef America series for a while now, they did this episode where the secret ingredient was none other than onions.
