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”

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”

Don’t go bacon my heart: Bacon + Macadamia Brittle

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. This brittle is bacon my heart. It will probably also give me diabetes, but I still want to wife it so hard. Look at that glistening bacon.

Twice-cooked Pork Belly with Chilli Caramel, Mung Bean Vermicelli + Apple Salad

Posted by Dani Sunario (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. I like things that are an everyday occurence. It gives me a sense of familiarity. Everyday coffee, everyday napping, everyday touching. Deep fried pork belly is definitely not an everyday dish. Perhaps the salad is, but it is definitely not as fun when it’s ridin’ solo. The combination ofContinue reading “Twice-cooked Pork Belly with Chilli Caramel, Mung Bean Vermicelli + Apple Salad”

Korean Barbie: Spicy BBQ Ribs + Kimchi Potato Salad

Posted by Tiff (@tiffanyalisonha), Perth.  If there’s something I crave all the time, it’s a Korean barbie. No, not the svelte, impossibly proportioned dancing and singing machines you see on PopAsia on a Sunday morning – the edible kind! The kind where you get together with some mates, grill some deliciously marinated bits ofContinue reading “Korean Barbie: Spicy BBQ Ribs + Kimchi Potato Salad”

What a Babe: Pulled Pork and Kimchi & Pork Mantou Slider

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. Pulled pork is all the rage these days. It is the ultimate comfort food and pretty versatile too! Not only is it cheap and super DUPER easy to prepare, but it also makes your house smell GLORIOUS while it’s slow cooking away.  Although it does take a while to cook, itContinue reading “What a Babe: Pulled Pork and Kimchi & Pork Mantou Slider”
