Cooking demo at Taman Tun Dr Ismailk

October 12th, 2008

I just completed a private cooking demo on Sat 11 Oct 2008, for 12 people in a private home, where I showed them how to make:

(a) lemon cake,

(b) lime muffins;

(c) pecan pie.

Whilst these may not be Cristang cuisine, but they are what people like for festive occassions.

Pineapple and Tomato Salsa

October 2nd, 2008

Julian and Marianne made this salsa which can be used as a topping for bruchettas or as a filling for burgers.

1 whole pineapple
1 red onion
7 tomatoes
3 nectarines
10 stalks of corriander (use the leaves only)

Chopped all ingredients into small bits. Keep in fridge pending serving.
When ready to serve, mix ingredients into a large mixing bowl
Drizzle olive oil over mixture
add pepper and salt to taste
squeeze 1 lemon
keep in fridge until ready to eat

The colour of the dish is quite inspiring as the green of the corriander plays against the red of the tomatoes and yellow of the pineapples.
