Pig’s Tail Souse

: : How  many folks have actually tried pig’s tails? Not many in this part of the world I assume. In my opinion, pigs tails are one of the best parts of the pig, but sadly underutilized in the  “civilized world”, were we tend to discard secondary cuts or feed them to the animals (lucky […]

Congee With Smoked Pig’s Tails & Vegetables

. . Rice Porridge. First thing that comes to mind is probably baby food or hospital gruff.

” Smoked Pig’s Tail, Bow Ties & Vegetable Stew “

Chicken Tandoori/Naan Sandwich

Usually, I would serve this with raita, sliced onions, sliced tomato, sliced cucumber, a few spritz of fresh lime, plain yogurt, finely sliced cabbage slaw, or any other addition […]

Naan “Pizza”

> > I love  to make pizza from scratch. I used to make it at least once or twice a month, mostly making my own dough, sometimes using fresh dough I bought at my favorite pizzeria. However, since I now live in a small apartment, with a small kitchen which has the counter space the size of […]

Pied De Cochon

> > ANYTHING  sounds better in french ?! 🙂 I used to call my wife “Mon Petit Chou”, which sounds perfectly sweet and romantic in french. Translated, it’s “My Little Cabbage” :-(. Not as sweet and romantic, no doubt. Same with my dinner today : “Pied De Cochon – which translates into “Pig’s Trotters”, one […]
