AFF Philippines – Pork Menudo

This dish helped me discover the joys of pork shoulder. So much so it is now one of my favourite cuts. There’s just something about slow cooked meat when it’s done right. The flesh will pull apart without tasting too dry or too soft. When I first saw this recipe, it was labelled a ‘street […]

Kimchi Soup

Wow, it has been a long hiatus hasn’t it? The last two months has been a whirlwind of crazy, what’s more the little ones had a bad stomach flu and was puking literally everywhere and on everything. I had to be careful about what they eat before they could ingest like solid food again. Not […]

AFF Korea Round-up

What a month!! It has been a great pleasure to have hosted for Korea and I thank you all for your encouraging submissions. We have a total of 74 submissions!! It has been awsome seeing people try out different dishes with this country theme and I hope we continue to do the same for May’s […]

AFF Korea – Royal Korean court stir fried rice cakes, Gungjung-tteokbokki 궁중떡볶이

I saw this recipe in maangchi and was intrigued by such a wonderful name, Royal Korean Court…a dish that has roots way back in history but has gone though a lot of modern changes and adaptations. These rice cakes are very popular in Korea and they come in all shapes and sizes. They are even […]

AFF Korea – Banchan (Korean Side Dish), Seasoned Spinach

Here’s a simple, almost no fuss recipe for a banchan dish. While this is called ‘sesoned spinach’, I have found that you cant exactly use any sort of spinach especially since a lot of Asian vege are just labelled ‘spinach’ in English. To get as close to the original look of the dish, I think […]

AFF Korea – Kimchi Dumplings/ Mandu 김치 만두

Like I mentioned in my previous post, the objective of making all that kimchi was so I could cook up dishes like this! Kimchi dumplings or mandu as it’s called in Korea. I don’t know if calling it mandu means it needs to have a specific shape like rounded tortellinis as is the norm shape […]

AFF Korea – Kimchi

How can one not do kimchi for Korea month? Kimchi is like the heart and soul of Korean cuisines and although it’s mainly served as a side dish, kimchi is very versatile and can be converted to many other dishes. Households in Korea even have special fridges just to keep their kimchi because when there […]

AFF West Asia – Falafel

When I heard there is a Middle East theme as one of the AFF cook-alongs, I knew I had to make falafels. We had a bloggers gathering months back and we each decided to make something that would adhere to AFF themes. Of course I have never made falafels in my life and the drama […]

AFF Thailand – Sankaya (Thai Pumpkin Coconut Custard)

While we know Thai food to have its punchy, bold flavours…I must admit I know little about its sweets and desserts. I’ve heard of the sticky rice and mango and the dessert with the red rubies but that’s about it. I just so happen to stumble upon this pumpkin custard dessert and thought it would […]

AFF Thailand – Gai Pad Krapow (Thai Basil Minced Chicken)

This dish has got to be the epitome of simple fast food. I really enjoyed the flavours of this said dish and wondered why I never experimented with Thai Basil before. The basil itself tastes sweet, peppery and has a bit of a bitter aftertaste but when I added lime to it, it balanced out […]
