It was a very small club meet but this meant we could eat more of each dish, so no complaints from anyone.
I was a little disappointed in myself for not making some time the day before to prepare some other dishes. I had intended to also make sugar cane ice-cream or rambutan lemongrass sorbet for dessert and also try making zaru tofu. I will definitely be making these another time and I think we were all glad we didn’t have to make room for even more food.
My dish: Laksa Fried Chicken. Really tasty. I used moist flakes of coconut instead of normal dessicated coconut and only used chicken wing pieces instead of a whole chicken cut up. I’m noticing I always pick the deep fried chicken recipe if there is one… delicious habit.
Gemma arrived with Hainanese Chicken Rice. One of my favourite dishes that I pig out on if mum cooks it. Today was no exception, 3 scoops of rice later I was happy and stuffed.
Porsha prepared the Siew Yuk with chilli and coriander relish (pork belly), which I was so temped to run away with when I first saw it. Lovely salty crackling.. yum!
Froggy made our serves of vegetables for the day – Bashed Cucumbers, Raw corn and carrot salad. I loved both vegetable side dishes (it really helped with all the meat that was there).
And for the first time I invited fellow food bloggers to participate in cookbook club virtually. And thanks to Adam Liaw retweeting the invite we had a number of participants which is really exciting.
