I’ve already given you a taste of the treasures that lie within Adam Liaw’s Two Asian Kitchens with the Siew Yuk. Above is Adam Liaw’s Ant’s Nest Cake, I’ve never seen a cake make those sorts of marks when baked. I can’t even explain why it does it! But I can say, with the slight caramel taste, it was so yummy!
The book is filled with little notes beside each recipe, giving tips on particular ingredients or how something is done, this really gives the book a very personal feel to it. Recipes are divided into two sections – the Old Kitchen and the New Kitchen. Old Kitchen containing dishes from his childhood and the New Kitchen filled with unique takes on favourite dishes and some new exciting additions, like the Camembert and Tofu Skewers. Delish!
Just wanted to open all our eyes today and bring forth this beautiful cookbook. Alas I’ve been a bit unwell as of late, but I will get back into the swing of things soon and by god there will be some amazing dishes! I promise! After watching Jay leave Masterchef last night because he had little experience with desserts made me think, what dishes and cultures do I still have to discover? Is there a type of dish that I’m not comfortable at cooking? This I shall investigate!
