Pork Belly Recipe for Bánh Mì (Vietnamese Sandwiches)

by Huy @ HungryHuy.com

At Vietnamese sandwich shops, you’ll find a dizzying number of meat options like grilled chicken, grilled beef, sardines, and even some Chinese influenced options like xíu mại. However, with Vietnamese sandwiches, pork seems to be king–you’ll always see pork options like chả lụa (meat loaf), thịt nướng (grilled pork), nem nướng (ground & grilled pork), bì […]

Black Bean Soup

by David @ David Lebovitz

When I was leafing through ¡Cuba! – Recipes and stories from the Cuban Kitchen, I was reminded how much I like black bean soup. In theory, black bean soup is just a dark bowl of beans and doesn’t sound all that exciting. Which is probably why I hadn’t made it in a while. Also black beans aren’t that easy to come by in France. There...

Giant Bean Gratin

One of the first that caught my eye was the “Pizza beans” in Smitten Kitchen Every Day. It also...

A Visit to the All-Clad Cookware Factory

Tasty jam-filled pikelets which are perfect for lunch boxes. My son started kindergarten last summer and, like in many Swiss schools, it is customary for the children to sit down to a hot lunch each day at a shared table.

Pan Seared Black Cod with Miso Butter and All-Clad d3 Armor Fish Pan Giveaway!

by The Ravenous Couple @ The Ravenous Couple

Eating a filet of fish without skin is like eating a skinless lechon or porchetta. It’s a travesty to miss out on the crispy skin and one we simply refuse to do. But it’s also a travesty to have the skin break and stick when cooking.  Which is why we love to prepare our fish […]

Caramelized Endive and Blue Cheese Tart

by David @ David Lebovitz

When I first heard about tarte Tatin, nothing sounded better to me. What first seems like way too many apples packed into a skillet, then caramelized and baked under a blanket of buttery pastry, then turned out and served warm, became one of my favorite desserts. I’ve had recipes for them in several of my books, but also enjoy the savory version. I’ve seen upside down...

by Amanda Chan @ Gourmanda

On our last day in Sri Lanka, the last members of our family tour group who were still in Colombo decided to go our separate ways for Christmas lunch.

Review: Vamos, Melbourne CBD

by Amanda Chan @ Gourmanda

If I was to ask you where you might find a great little Spanish/Latin-style tapas bar in Melbourne, Little Bourke Street’s Chinatown probably wouldn’t be your first guess. The hip enclaves of the inner North perhaps – Fitzroy, Brunswick, Collingwood. Or the yuppie South – Prahran, South Yarra. The top end of Little Bourke Street … Continue reading "Review: Vamos, Melbourne CBD"

Returning to our Garden

by Todd & Diane @ White On Rice Couple

At the end of a long work day or time away from home, returning to our garden is always comforting. We miss this place, our little sanctuary. It’s been over 15 years of blood, sweat, tears, achy backs and sore knees that brings us to this point in the garden. It’s pretty settled in now…

Bún Bò Huế Recipe – Spicy Beef & Pork Noodle Soup

by Huy @ HungryHuy.com

Bún bò Huế is a hidden Vietnamese gem that has yet to “make it” in mainstream American cuisine. It’s a rich and spicy soup with deep layers of flavor. This Central Vietnamese soup is paired with tender slices of beef and pork, then topped with lots of fresh herbs. Phở has made its way in and has grown popular quickly, so why […]

Let’s put this out here front and center. We’re gluttons for good smoked bbq (we’ve had a bbq caterer smoke bbq for 3 parties!) but have always been too intimidated to make it at home—until now. Yes, we’ve spent hours making complex soups such as bun bo hue and other seemingly difficult Vietnamese dishes, but […]

Review: Barry, Northcote

by Amanda Chan @ Gourmanda

In Melbourne, North-side is as foreign a concept to me as West-side. Raised in the East and living in the South, there’s a certain snobbish-ness about my unfamiliarity with other areas of this city. Even when friends hail from those parts of town, we’ll arrange to meet somewhere more central for catch-ups – heaven forbid … Continue reading "Review: Barry, Northcote"

Petit Beurre Biscuits with Chocolate

by Eat, Little Bird @ Eat, Little Bird

Delicious homemade Petit Beurre Biscuits with Chocolate (Petit Écolier). As a child visiting my family in France and Switzerland, I always loved snacking on Petit Beurre biscuits, especially those made by the French brand, Lu, and especially the ones which came with a bar of chocolate on top, called Petit écolier. While I like to remain faithful to the original French brand, other companies now also make similar biscuits, and it is hard
