Fusion Spicy Peanut Slaw


I like the crunch of coleslaw but not the creaminess of the dressing. How to make a light and refreshing coleslaw without the cream? Try this recipe using Asian sauces instead.

Durian Puffs


Durians. Love them or hate them. I am a durian lover. We only have access to the frozen version of these King of fruits, much of its distinctive ‘aroma’ is lost in the freezing process. We don’t get the kick out of sinking our teeth into thawed durian pulp. Nonetheless, beggars can’t be choosers. This weekend, I filled some choux Read More

Tofu Steak Fusion Rice Bowl


I was very impressed by the presentation of the rice bowls at Pacific Catch; a bowl full of colors and textures. I tried to recreate it today with tofu, roasted vegetables, beet and radish chips, and edamame, adding color and texture to the plate.  To give the dish a punch, I pan-fried the tofu in a tangy sauce. It is Read More

Five Spice Roast Chicken


  The first time I roasted a bird was last Thanksgiving 2013; roasted a 12 lb turkey for a gourmet club event with the theme Fusion Thanksgiving. Since then, my roasting pan has been sitting in the garage. The girls asked me if I will ever use that roasting pan again? I decided that I will practice roasting a bird Read More
