One of the most popular posts on The Gourmet Forager is one recreating David Thompson’s tom yum goong recipe (Thai hot and sour soup with prawns) – one that is at first glance intimidatingly complex yet once attempted, I found it was simple, reliably reproducible yet no less impressive. The flavours were so punchy and […]

Welcome to my first post of 2011! I’ve had a month long break; left my brain bobbing somewhere in turquoise waters in the Pacific Ocean; spent plenty of time with family and friends and had ample opportunity to relax, take stock and reflect. I’ve decided 2011 is going to be the year of ‘Learning’ for […]

Crabs provide so much culinary pleasure for me and they easily make the list of my top 5 foods I couldn’t live without. One of my all-time favourite meals to indulge in is a massive, messy pile of delicious crab – great when devoured at restaurants; but most preferably done at home, with a very […]

If you saw my last post, you’d know that it was my birthday recently. Well, it was also my mother’s as this year her birthday fell on a date 2 days before mine. How is that possible? Well, she celebrates her birthday by the lunar calendar – the traditional Chinese calendar that shifts every year […]

Salt and pepper crab, scallop and calamari

September 19, 2009

On a recent grocery trip to Cabramatta, I came across some cute little scuttling crabs I’d not seen before. The sign said shore crabs – but they certainly looked different and appreciably larger than any crab I’d ever found on any sea shore I’d explored – and believe me, I’m always on the lookout for […]

The Deadliest Catch of Alaskan Crab

September 2, 2009

Oh how I love crab. I have a great weakness for these scuttling arachnids and if it appears on a restaurant menu, I’ll preferentially order it over anything else. I’ve tried a plethora of different crabs across the globe from the humble blue swimmers and meaty mud crabs widely available in Australia, to hairy Shanghai […]

Vietnamese eating tour – Ho Chi Minh (part 2)

July 13, 2009

The second part of the Ho Chi Minh eating tour sees us setting off for the Binh Tay markets in Chinatown. We decide to set off early and walk there leisurely before the humidity melts us and before we become sticky and irritated. The walk has us navigating the gauntlet of speeding, weaving, beeping motorbikes. […]

March Into Merivale launch

March 5, 2009

Sydney has been teased for a while now with the March into Merivale program. Naked chefs adorned the website and menus for a month in advance. Provocative? Sure. But frankly, I’m not sure it was doing my appetite any favours. Having quickly secured a few lunches and dinners at venues offering dishes that interested me, […]

Xiao long bao at Din Tai Fung

February 6, 2009

I was catching up with a friend for lunch and he suggested Din Tai Fung as he had yet to try their dumplings. Din Tai Fung is a famous Taiwanese based international dumpling chain and last year a new outlet opened its doors at World Square in Sydney. Din Tai Fung offers tasty little treats […]

The Asian Food Odyssey – Part 3 (final): Hong Kong

December 20, 2008

The final section of our trip was spent in Hong Kong – where I really released my inner foodie and went hunting for the foodie dishes I’d researched about before embarking on this trip. Mantis prawns featured highly on this trip. They’re something I find synonymous with HK as we can’t get these critters in […]
