Serving mini pork buns

This is technically as Chinese inspired as it is Vietnamese. Either way it is low prep, delicious and fun for the kids who like any dish where they compile their own servings. Mini Pork Buns. Ingredients. 1 packet frozen spring roll buns (from Asian grocers) 500g piece pork neck Char siu sauce 2 spring onions […]

Varoma. Chinese Chicken & Eggplant.

by Dani

I had a spectacularly long day at uni today, followed by picking up the kids from the various people I had begged favours from. So by the time we got home, it was much later than it should have been. I had dinner on the table precisely 20 minutes after I walked in the door. […]

Varoma. Steamed barramundi with soy/garlic/ginger sauce and julienne salad.

by Dani

Lil Miss had her sixth birthday party today. A lovely little affair at our favourite park. Lunch time parties tend to make me somewhat recalcitrant about cooking dinner. Entirely due to constant nibbling. Fortunately for the hungry men of the household, I was all set with a meal so light, delicious and quick to prepare […]

Sticky rice lunch bites

by Dani

Delicious little morsels, perfect for finger food or piling into lunch boxes. Very bento friendly. Just in case you were wondering, the recent lack of photos is a gesture of disgust at the hideous lighting in my hideous house. Photography will resume when the house has been demolished. Which will happen soon should the universe […]

Steamed curry cakes

Chinese Style Steamed Chicken 1 chicken, cut into breast, wings, thighs and drumsticks 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 tablespoon sherry 2 teaspoons cornfour […]

Thermomix. Steamed fish with tamarind and ginger sauce

by Dani

Here is a quick and healthy meal to cheer your tastebuds. All cooked in the thermomix with the help of the varoma. Of course, without a thermomix, the same could be achieved with a saucepan and steamer. Steamed Fish with Tamarind & Ginger Sauce 4 small whole fish or 4 fillets, any firm white fish […]

Chez KP goes Vietnamese

by Dani

Ahh Vietnamese food. It never fails to delight. Never. Every dish was hungrily gobbled and loudly praised this evening. The soup was magical. My love for pho is not unknown but I simply did not have the time to make the stock. I’ve found my quick substitute soup. The beef and Vietnamese coriander soup is […]

Prawn, Scallop, Leftovers and Rolled Rice Noodles

by Dani

OK so we know that Vietnamese food is my favourite. Real, authentic Vietnamese food. Tonight though, I have proven the incredible perfection of Vietnamese flavour combinations. I threw a few things together and ended up writhing in culinary ecstasy. How does one cuisine manage to get it so damn right? Admittedly the Ankle Biters were […]

Thermomix Beurre Blanc (of sorts)

by Dani

OK, maybe not the exact, precise, traditional beurre blanc but it’s the way I threw it together and served it over lovely firm white fish fillets with a green salad. Lovely hot night dinner. Thermomix Beurre Blanc Style Sauce Over Fish 4 firm white fish fillets. 40g butter 2 cloves garlic 2 shallots 1/3 cup […]
