Mulgaro’s Breakfast

As if you need Mulgaro, or anyone for that matter, to tell you how to make breakfast. This recipe is no different to any other morning goodness out there, but it is somewhat colourful and evokes a feeling of excitement when served to any moody early birds. The pan-fried cherry tomatoes bring about a subtle…

Anchovy Spaghetti

Anchovies – an ingredient that can either lift you to supreme joy in an instant, or send you plummeting into a tunnel of discontent. It isn’t the texture that that is off-putting for most people, rather that undesirable salty-seafood taste that can exceed the fishy-tolerance threshold. This especially tends to be the case when they…

Rose Cocktail

It’s Friday night. I have all my gear on and I am seated in a spectacular corner of a restaurant ready to carve my way through the chef’s most tasty meals. As is normal for a treat or other occasion to be celebrated, cocktails are ordered first to signal the start of the weekend. They…

Couscous Salad

It has been a good while since I last cooked with couscous. Lazy? Reading? Running off to a new country? Having cocktails instead? Yes all of the above, but also because there wasn’t an occasion that felt natural to cook with this ingredient, and I certainly didn’t want to boil the couscous just for the…

Vietnamese Pho

Summer of 2014-the first step into the beautiful land of Hanoi, Vietnam.

Hanoi, of all other cities in Southeast Asia, contains a calming, yet exciting welcoming aura,…

Khmer Curry

This time last year I was on a trail around South East Asia. The final leg of the journey was Cambodia and it was here where I came face to face with an awe-inspiring dish-Khmer Curry. Indeed it is a touristic dish and can be found promoted in chalk-writing in every street restaurant you stroll…

Herbal Carrot Salad (Yum Samun Phrai)

Yum Samun Prai is a so-called herb salad because it is one of the only few that incorporates lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves in its core. It is not dissimilar to a Tom Yum Soup but in salad form, without any sharp flavours; instead, mellow and focused on the carrot’s natural sweetness. This salad illustrates…

Spicy Stir-Fried Cod With Chilli Basil

Basil is a fragrant power plant that seems to be the main engine of a tasteful dish. In Thai cuisine, we see its value in Gra Prow (chilli-basil stir-fry) especially – their notes are even more emphasised when combined with chillies. Their uplifting capacity doesn’t end there however, they are also the prime ingredients in…
