  • HOG's garlic noodles
    One of our clients, Hands on Gourmet (HOG), served these noodles (along with crab!) at a holiday lunch in 2013. We then made these noodles the following year for our New Year's Eve dinner. The recipe is adapted from HOG's recipe ... we've just updated the proportions of the recipe to scale with the quantity of egg noodles available at our local Asian market.

  • HOG's Singapore Chili Crabs
    We adapted this recipe from one of our clients, Hands on Gourmet (aka HOG). We found it tricky to work with the "seedless" block of tamarind we used for it, so we added a step to use hot water to facilitate the processing. This delicious crab recipe can be served hot off the wok or at room temp. tamarind pastehot watersambal (hot chili garlic paste)oyster saucetomato pastesoy saucerice vinegaravocado oilscallionsfresh gingercurry powderkaffir lime leavesgarlicDungeness crabsfresh squeezed lemon juicefresh cilantro
  • roasted baby bok choy
    This is our favorite way to prepare bok choy! This technique is super easy and the leaves develop a light delicious char in the oven. Since we are usually cooking for 2-3 people and this dish is best fresh out of the oven, we have halved this recipe from the original. Use a second rimmed baking sheet if doubling this recipe. baby bok choyolive oilsaltblack pepper
  • Thai chicken & mushroom soup (doubled for parties and to store)
    I made this soup for friends and family during the 2013 holiday season. Everyone loved it! Processing the lemongrass and shallots is the most time-consuming part, so I now chop it up in a food processor. I'll make this doubled version of the recipe for parties, or I cook half of it at a time for smaller groups. To make the soup a meal, serve it over steamed brown rice. vegetable oilshallotslemongrasscilantrofish saucechicken brothcoconut milkcoconut milksugarwhite mushroomsskinless chicken breastslime juiceThai red curry pastefish saucesteamed brown ricecilantro leavesserrano chilesscallionslimes
