Dinner for one: I made a lot of food for guests who couldn’t show up today. Serves me right for being ambitious.
1. 3 Cultures Bao: pork belly fish sauce caramelization (Vietnamese), kim chee (Korean), homemade chillies in hot oil, pickled cucumbers & hoisin sauce (Chinese), rice bun
2. Kale salad 3 ways: raw, roasted, tempura’d with sweet potato fries, champagne pickled cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds and sesame miso dressing
3. Coconut pudding w tapioca, black beans and durian
:) I miss cooking ornately - the chemistry and techniques calm my brain a bit from the typical social media/tech spazz.
