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”

AR-RIB-A! CRUNCHY SPICED CHICKEN RIBS + SMOKED PAPRIKA AIOLI

It’s nearing that time of year again, when sports are a thing. Like, there are televised finals and stuff. I guess sports are always a thing, but the only sportsgame i’m really familiar with is competitive eating. YEAH, SPORTS! Either way, these ribs are rib-ticklingly good while spectating or competitively participating, or even without any associationContinue reading “AR-RIB-A!

Lucky Laksa: Chicken + Prawn Laksa Lemak revisited

Over a year ago, I posted my favourite recipe for Chicken + Prawn Laksa Lemak up on the blog, and this past weekend, I was lucky enough to revisit the recipe for a few of my absolute favourites.

Then, there wasContinue reading “Bananas for bananas: Salted Caramel Banana Upside-Down Cake”

They see me rollin’, they hatin’: Chorizo + Bacon Sausage Rolls with Fennel + Pomegranate Jam

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. Because sausage puns are the absolute wurst, i’m going to quit before I get on a roll and all you readers start hatin’. Here, have a video of a kitten riding a turtle instead: Sausage rolls are one of those quintessentially Australian things. I associate them with the frozen foodContinue reading “They see me rollin’, they hatin’: Chorizo + Bacon Sausage Rolls with Fennel + Pomegranate Jam”

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”

Seoul Searching: Vegetarian Fish Cakes + Cucumber Pickle

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. Korean fusion food is all the rage at the moment, especially with food trucks in the US capitalising on the Korean-Mexican fusion. Bulgogi burrito with a side of kimchi? You don’t have to ask me twice! I mean, both cuisines count rice as a staple, so really it’s not that far aContinue reading “Seoul Searching: Vegetarian Fish Cakes + Cucumber Pickle”
