ATOTB Kitchen Update: September Recipes

We’ve had a few crazy busy weeks of recipe development here at A Tale of Two Bougies Kitchen HQ. This past week has seen us committing to stepping outside our usual (very Asian-themed) box, and playing with flavours and techniques that are a little more unfamiliar and less frequently used in our kitchen. We’ve alsoContinue reading “ATOTB Kitchen Update: September Recipes”

Quinoa as mustard! Quinoa + Coconut Poached Chicken Salad with Tamarind Dressing

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. I’ve been eating a lot of Kraft cheese lately. You know the stuff – squares of plastic cheese, wrapped in another layer of plastic dividing them into a single serve that is only ever satisfying if you eat more than one at a time and/or are supremely inebriated. If we’reContinue reading “Quinoa as mustard! Quinoa + Coconut Poached Chicken Salad with Tamarind Dressing”

I have a friend (who shall remain entirely anonymous) who has been known to wink at the guy in the drive-thru at our local KFC in order toContinue reading “Chick it out! Pandan Fried Chicken (PFC)”

Noodlin’ Around: Chicken and Prawn Laksa Lemak

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. Laksa is probably in my top five favourite foods ever. I once challenged my brother on a family trip back to Singapore to eat a bowl of laksa for every main meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) for seven days. He gave up after only two days and I won. MyContinue reading “Noodlin’ Around: Chicken and Prawn Laksa Lemak”

Take a Bao: Vegan Curry + Coconut Bao

Posted by Dani (@danisunario), Melbourne. Pastry cooking is definitely not a forte of mine. I struggle to adhere strictly to measurements and cooking times and not just play it by ear/sight/feel/smell. In my mind, kneading dough seems too fidgety and messy, and there are so many variables that could possibly go wrong. It genuinely is aContinue reading “Take a Bao: Vegan Curry + Coconut Bao”
