Clams en Papillote with Potatoes & Peas


Cooking en papillote is a French cooking method which means "in parchment". It encloses the food in an envelope, employing steaming and braising as the food cooks itself in liquid. Cooking by this method infuses the entire packet with the herbs, wine, and vegetables. The food cooks and steam by itself without drying out. It's also healthier, because the method requires little or no oil.

Apple Pastille Samosa


I learn about this recipe during the Panasonic Cooking Workshop a couple of weeks back. Beside the Farmer Pie, this is another recipe I really like.

19 June 2013

Farmer Pie


Cottage pie (beef), shepherd's pie (lamb), farmer pie (chicken) is traditionally made with leftover roast meat, but today it is more often made with fresh minced or rich ground meat/poultry stew topped with fluffy spuds then baked until the top layer is lightly browned. It makes a nice hearty breakfast or brunch.

Steamed Salmon with Tomato Basil Couscous


Rice cooker - yea or nay? Everyone who loves to cook at home will definitely enjoy the luxury brands of different kitchen appliance, no? Pot for soup, pot for stewing, different size and shape of frying pan etc. Unfortunately not many has the space for storage, especially if you are living in a rented place.

10 June 2013

Tomato Basil Soup (番茄九层塔湯)


Although food bloggers love to eat, but we are caution about our diet as much as everyone else. Especially if we have lots of tasting, we grow side way faster than expected. To maintain my figure, I avoid taking rice for dinner and soup is my favourite choice. Sadly, I don't have time to boil the soups for hours after work and watching the fire can be a pain in the ass at time, don't you agree?

Not anymore, after I try making soup with Panasonic Rice Cooker. I can stir-fry the ingredients in it, dump everything in, program to FAST/SLOW Cook, close the lid, have a shower, shake my leg and ta-da, the soup is ready!

07 June 2013

Baked Carrot Cake using Panasonic Rice Cooker (红萝卜蛋糕)


Honestly, I have never bake a cake using a rice cooker even thou I have heard people doing so. Why? Cause I have a oven at home? I mean, seriously, do you boil your soup in a rice cooker when you have the pot? (well, we did and we shall post the recipe in the next post!)

Homemade Vegetable Stock


This is not the ultra-pungent stock, but light and mild in flavor. Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes to extract the maximum flavor from the vegetables. It is light yet flavourful. The vegetable stock is, in my opinion, the most versatile stock because it is flavorful enough (and healthy) to create stews, soups, pasta and other flavouring of food.

Green Radish Carrot Soup


This sweet and savory soup is rich in vitamin C and minerals. It boasts the ability to benefit the spleen and throat, dispels inner heat, nourishes lungs, purges toxins and enhances radiance.

Chinese likes to use pork ribs for making soup, however in this recipe we use pork backbones. Not only it enhance the soup flavour, but also compensates for the cooling nature of the green radish and carrot, while replenishes calcium.
