Clam Soups with Thyme Croutons

Clam Soups with Thyme Croutons

What you’ll make when you have cute little clams and good quality baguette on hand? Clam chowder maybe? Unfortunately, I didn’t have corn and potato, besides that, I want something light, not a creamy soup. More recently there was a dish that I really want to make. It was a David Rocco Italian Clam Soup or Zuppa di Vongole. I make it soupier and use a tomato paste instead of cherry tomatoes. For the croutons, I use a day old baguette from Authentique French Bakery. It is a small French bakery in Kemang, South Jakarta and the owner is a French lady. I bought my baguette from there yesterday, I love her baguette, It fresh and I don’t want to add too much flavour. I just shredded the baguette and fry it with olive oil and infuse it with thyme.

Vegetable and Egg Chatamari

Vegetable and Egg Chatamari

There are so many types of crepes outside there. Sweet or savoury, crispy or chewy…the choices are endless. French crepe surely is the most popular crepe in the world, but how about Nepalese crepe? Nepalese have their own version too, it’s a savoury crepe made from rice flour. There are many variations of chatamari, keema (beef), egg, vegetable or plain chatamari. Keema chatamari looks delicious, but this time I want to make vegetable and egg chatamari Continue Reading

Mediterranean Salmon and Cauliflower Rice Bowl

Salmon and Cauliflower Rice Bowl

This salmon and cauliflower rice bowl inspired by machboos. In Bahrain machboos commonly regarded as a national dish, but this dish can be also found served in other Persian Gulf countries such as Kuwait and Qatar. The dish is usually made with pulao (pilaf/rice) and either chicken, meat or even fish. But this time I replaced the white rice with cauliflower rice and served it with grilled salmon and tabbouleh salad.  Continue Reading

Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Spiced Onion Relish

Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Spiced Onion Relish

I just had a dream…a really weird dream about a stringy grilled cheese sandwich. I woke at 3 a.m. and couldn’t get back to sleep. My mind was racing like a rabbit’s heart, I can’t stop thinking about that stringy and gooey cheese sandwich. I woke up from my bed and tiptoeing into the kitchen like a thief. I snatched cheese and bread from the fridge. From the distance, I can hear the sounds of the cricket and frogs whispered to me that cheese and chutney is a match made in heaven. Continue Reading

Peanut Sauce French Fries with Soft-Boiled Egg

Peanut Sauce French Fries with Soft-Boiled Egg

The combination of potato and peanut sauce is no stranger for me. Even so the Dutch war fries (patatje oorlog) still unfamiliar to me. The combination of fries, peanut sauce, mayonnaise and raw onion piqued my interest. But I have no plans for a trip to Netherland in the near future. Maybe I should make it at home, or make my own version of it. Continue Reading
