From plan to preparation to plate, my recipe will almost never end up the way it … Continue reading TURKEY COCO CHILLI WITH CHORIZO & BORLOTTI BEANS
Malaysian Spiced Crayfish Curry. Food culture purists gets me so nervous. I recall once telling a friend of Italian decent how I make – what I ascertained to be – a traditional lasagne only for him to verbally beat me to the pavement for my culinary vulgar Western ways.

Bulgur Wheat Pilaf. I find that my substitution for certain ingredients in recipes is more of an act of forgetfulness as opposed to being culinary adventurous.

Naturally, this method is both the quickest and the easiest (pardon my impatience and idleness) but more so because I find this method to … Continue reading WHITE CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE WITH GINGER BISCUIT BASE
Honey Chicken & Lemon Roast There is nothing more reassuring during a stressful work day than knowing your dinner is resting idly in the plastic comfort of a ziplock bag in the icy coolness of your freezer. Now I know that may sound like a ‘round the bushes’ way of glorifying chucking a bunch of … Continue reading HONEY CHICKEN & LEMON ROAST
Here is my second recipe as a contributing writer to http://www.yummymummysworld.com where I tackle the notion of food texture on a developing palette. Critical for the mouths of infants but also interesting to note for any fussy eaters! Chorizo & Turmeric Pilaf. Taste buds are a tricky thing. Ones palette is a constantly developing entity … Continue reading COLLABORATION TIME PART II

My name is Mikey and I’m going to tell you the truth about good food. I am going to tell you something that has been veiled with the myth that in order for one to eat, they must ‘pierce the film several times’ or order a takeaway. The truth about good food simply is: you’re … Continue reading The Truth About Good Food.
