Dinner 2018

Recommended Posts

Somewhat unusually, I cooked dinner tonight for three young guests - sisters.

Hunan style cumin beef (湖南式孜然牛肉)

Sweet and Sour Ribs (糖醋排骨)

Clams steamed in Shaoxing wine with garlic and black salt fermented beans (豆豉)

Thai red chicken curry

Fresh straw mushrooms steamed with garlic, olive oil and water.

While the three sisters declared themselves happy with all the dishes, their runaway favourite was the mushrooms which tasted better than my unappealing photograph shows. Four people, five dishes plus rice. The formula for Chinese eating. One more dish than participants.

I'm trying to clean out the fridge and cupboards before a long trip. Pearl couscous with tomatoes, mushrooms and baby kale.

No photo. Two toasted heels of bread with ketchup and this time I went a bit up market and added some HP sauce.

More fresh local fish.   Amberjack with sides of "left over" collards, slivered snow peas and more corn bread.

A local restaurant at a night market. Much respect for their immense patience and kindness for us tourists. Filling out a form to order is the usual procedure but they let me do it another way.

We had meatloaf last night, along with some late season beans from the garden, a bit of gravy with mushrooms, mashed potatoes and a nice plate of farm stand tomatoes.
