Salmon Tartare with Enoki Mushrooms - Guest Blog

Today, I have invited another prominent food blogger, Terry Wong who runs The Food Canon, to do my very first guest blog on The Silver Chef.

And the reason I have asked Terry is that like myself, he is an avid food lover and is utterly passionate about cooking, and he has some fantastic recipes up on his own blog. I do encourage you to check out his food blog.

Recently, I had a chance to help him cook for a fund raising event and it was a wonderful experience working with him. Soon after, we talked of doing guest blogs for one another hence, he has come up with a terrific salmon tartare dish which is presented below.

Simple Bacon and Onion Omelette Recipe

Gordon Ramsay once said that he likes to test a cook's skill by asking him or her to cook a simple egg dish for him. The reasoning is quite simple, and I tend to subscribe to it.

It is always easy to use expensive and premium ingredients to elevate a dish, but it is always quite hard to take something simple and make it special. And eggs are one of the most common ingredients out there.

Soon Heng Rojak at Toa Payoh HDB Hub

I never knew how handy the ieat hawker app was until recently, when I was at Toa Payoh HUB and thinking that there won't be any good food around, seeing there was only a basement food court.

And quite frankly, how many food courts in Singapore can boast of a fairly famous and popular hawker stall that will get queues the likes of Tian Tian Chicken Rice in Maxwell Market? Not many, I guess.

Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee

For quite some time now, I have thought that the char kway teow in Meng Kee in Beo Crescent was far and away the best and my own personal favorite for CKT.

This week, I was finally brought to the famous Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee stall, and boy, was it superb. So much so, that I probably will tie it for first place among the best CKT in Singapore

Butter Soba with Garlic Mushroom

I have always thought of replacing pasta with soba for one of my own recipes, and it is on one weekend afternoon when I decided to try this out.

Pauline has always been an advocate of healthy choices, and of late, she has been making a lot of soba for our meals, using the tried and tested way of having cold soba with Japanese soya sauce.

Sirloin Apple - My New Blog on All Things Apple, Mac, iPhone and iPad

For quite some time now, I have thought of doing a separate blog on my passion on Apple devices, and today, I have finally decided to initiate a new blog.

I call it Sirloin Apple, for the simple reason that I want it to be simple, and also sound delicious at the same time, in conjunction with this food blog.

Braised Oxtail

My dad used to love this dish when I was young during those younger times, it was also not easy to find a good place that can serve a credible oxtail dish.

I decided to try my hand at making this dish myself, and in a way, dedicate this to those who are celebrating Father's Day next month and maybe use this recipe to whip up something for their dads.
