Branded: a mooncake by any other name
Breakfast and dinner in the some tray. Large 2 kg/4.5 lb fish from the Tonle Sap at today’s market, while the fish monger’s breakfast bowl awaits.
Pull-tab coconuts. Not quite thought through, though. The tab broke on first attempt and we resorted to a tried and true corkscrew. Give me a machete any day!
Breakfast: stir fried rice noodles with beef and sickly sweet iced coffee!
Char siu set. When I was a kid Chinese barbeque pork was a restaurant fave: served with hot mustard, ketchup and sesame. It still never fails. My recreation last night without red food colouring in the homemade char siu marinade, though. And I used honey instead of maltose.
