Thai Veg and Noodle Stir-fry with Steamed Chicken

On a weeknight, I’m all about ease. Who can be bothered cooking up a storm when you have slaved at the office for 9 hours, possibly longer if there are campaigns being launched!! Not me. No Sir-ee! I like to come home, chuck a few things together, and eat as soon as possible. If I can cut corners here and there, I’ll do it. For example, I’m quite partial to crushed garlic or ginger straight from the jar. The fab people at Gourmet Garden sent me a little esky of tube herbs and said to create a simple, every day recipe. OK, I will! Thai Veg and Noodle Stir-fry with Steamed Chicken Ingredients 1 Large chicken breast (250g) 2 tsp Gourmet Garden THAI Seasoning 1 tsp Gourmet Garden Chunky Garlic paste 250g fresh thick rice noodles 1 red capsicum, sliced 1 green capsicum, sliced 1 king brown mushroom, sliced...

Rambutan – Darlinghurst

Rambutan – Darlinghurst

Stud and I aren’t lovers of Thai food. Actually, that’s not true. When we eat it, we like it, but when every second restaurant in Sydney became Thai, I felt compelled to boycott. That said, we are going to Thailand for our honeymoon and I actually can’t wait to try everything while we are there. We just don’t go out to Thai much. Japanese is our cuisine of choice but this night, we were off to a friends birthday who is obsessed with Thai and I was excited to find it was Rambutan we were going to. I had heard good things and was really looking forward to trying what they had to offer. Again, as a big group, we went with the banquet which was pretty good value at $55 per person. First out was the Miang of smoked trout and grilled chilli eggplant relish. This dish baffled...

Hun Kee Chinese and Thai Restaurant – Riverwood

In an effort to try all the restaurants in our area, Stud and I headed out for a couple of bottles of wine and a stroll around the neighbourhood looking for somewhere to eat. We walked past a couple of places that we had been to already but wanted to try something different so ended up at Hun Kee. The décor was what you would expect from an old school Chinese restaurant in the burbs. A little run down but not messy at all. Just not up to date or “trendy”. In my opinion, this usually means good food as the trendier ones have a tendency to let that get in the way. We sat at our table and the waitress brought us over the menus. One laminated version of a takeaway menu and the other, a big folder filled with food porn! Stud and I were immediately excited...

Thai red duck curry

I’ve never cooked duck before. Its something I have always put in the “too chefie” basket and never bothered to give it a go as I always thought I would bugger it up and not do justice to the deliciously succulent bird. But when I saw that the wholesale butcher was selling the breasts for $20/kg I thought why not? I contemplated cooking it a little while ago when firneds came around for dinner but my pride got in the way and I didn’t want to give them something I wasn’t confident in cooking so I opted to cook it on a Sunday night when Stud was on his way home from the game. I looked at a lot of recipes from very basic to reeeeeeally fancy and settled on a curry that wasn’t too fussy so perfect for a first timer. It was actually a lot easier than...
