According to our host, many Eurasians recipes are kept as family secrets so there aren’t many Eurasian restaurants or Eurasian cookbooks. We are encouraged to be creative as long as the recipe combines both European and South East Asian cuisines. After some research online, I realized Read More

The theme for the 57th Gourmet Club meet was Martha Stewart Christmas. Our esteem club member Lee Lee brought baked penne based on Martha’s recipe.

Chicken Salad Sandwich


Since I made the Egg Salad Sandwich a couple of weeks back, I’ve been thinking about all its ‘cousins’ that I used to fix for quick lunches.

Three-Cup Chicken


I love three-cup chicken for the thick, aromatic sauce. While it is true that you need equal parts of soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil, the key to success of this dish is to have lots of garlic and basil. I tried it this weekend as part of the catering menu for the girls.  Delicious! Drizzle the sauce over Read More
