Pork Guisantes or Pork and Peas is a Filipino dish, very popular in Hawaii, and I love it. I've modify the authentic recipe just a touch.
I used 2 boneless-skinless Pork Loin Chops that I can readily get at the large warehouse store, but you use whatever cut of Pork you prefer to equal about a...

I love the simplicity of this recipe.
Quantities really do not need to be exact and if you want to use dairy milk and dairy butter, it really won't affect it.
The original recipe says to peel the potatoes, but I can tell you now that that is not necessary at all. The greens can be pretty much...
As a reminder, and educational basis, I followed this Croatian recipe: Hladetina od junetine i poriluka | Fini Recepti by Crochef. The reipe did not call for adding additional gelatine, besides the natural ones from the meat. So I did not add gelatine. Now looking back, it might have been better...
Keralan cooking often uses tamarind and coconut milk in curry dishes. This particular dish doesn’t include coconut milk but has a hot, sour and aromatic flavour reminiscent of Keralan cuisine. To me, one important thing here is the slicing of the onions and tomatoes into ‘petals’. If you simply...

I had duck breast at a restaurant for a birthday celebration, and I was amazed by the flavor and texture: it wasn't just an expensive chicken breast. Instead, it was more like steak, but better, with a richness that I haven't had before. I decided to us a cast iron pan, because I like the...
You can use gluten-free bread for the breadcrumbs, if desired.
"A 19th-century recipe from California for Codornices a la española (Spanish-style quail) was prepared by stuffing quails with a mixture of mushroom, green onion, parsley, butter, lemon juice and thyme. The birds were brushed with...
On my various travels to the Mexican coastal areas, I have always happily eaten fish tacos several times while visiting. I have been to Cancun, Cozumel, and Cabo San Lucas many times. In the coastal communities, fish tacos are often very similar in their components, using fried fish (generally...
This dish is widespread in Chinese restaurants and 'Tze Char' eateries in Singapore. It doesn't have a lot of ingredients and is quite easy to do though there are a couple of stages, one of which involves deep-frying, though that is very fast.
Salted Duck Eggs are available in Asian...

3 large egg yolks...

I wanted to make something that was garlic forward. You can't get much more forward than using 4 heads of garlic. Garlic soup is part of the cuisine of several countries, perhaps most famously Spanish cuisine (sopa de ajo). There are different ways to prepare a garlic soup, so I didn't feel bad...
Pears poached in spiced red wine is a great classic recipe. I added a cheeky Scotch Bonnet chilli for a surprise kick. The pistachio ‘custard’ with rose water provides a creamy sweet aromatic contrast to the spice. Roll the pastry as thin as you dare for a super crisp result.
