Wonton Dumpling









* Wonton Skins (Generally Available in many Asian Stores if not see note below)
500g / 1lb of Ground Pork or –
You may use Ground Chicken, Shrimp or any meat of your choice
1 Tablespoon of Rice Flour although any flour will do.
1-2 Cloves of Garlic
About 1 inch of Chopped Ginger
2 tablespoons of Light Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon of Oyster Sauce
1/2 a teaspoon of Salt
Chilli – optional
A Good Handful of Fresh Cilantro or Coriander
2-3 Chopped Spring Onions or Scallions
4-5 Chopped Chives
The Meat is Essential but you can mix up the spices and herbs to suit your preference, I sometimes add a little Chinese Cooking wine and sometimes some Shiitaki Mushrooms but Like I say the ingredients are flexible to your likes.

* Wonton Skins can be bought in most Asian Supermarkets, if you can not find them there is a recipe on my site for Chinese Pancakes. It is exactly the same technique but they do not need to be rolled so thin or steamed just follow instruction up to 3 minutes 45 seconds and you will have home made Dumpling Skins.

Why do I feel that way?  Watch and see?

Choc Noodle







To Celebrate the National Chocolate week, multi billion dollar Unilever Brand “Pot Noodle” announce the Choc Noodle, This 100% Chocolate Free, chocolate dessert version of the very popular Pot Noodle is said to offer the consumer the full meal experience all in two Styrofoam Pots? To quote Monique Rossi,  Pot Noodle Marketing Manager

“We know our fans love the ultimate comfort food flavours in a pot and our first chocolate dessert offers another occasion to enjoy their favourite noodles with delicious ease. Our Choc Noodle still only takes four minutes to prepare and is the perfect end to any meal. We’ve taken advice from Paul A. Young, the best in the chocolate business, to ensure our dessert will impress even the pickiest of critics!”

What can I say? “Perfect end to any Meal”  Monique? Let us just pause a moment to conjure up a picture of Unilever Executives, dining in the Wardorf Hotel and reaching for the Menu in the hope that they can cap their evening meal off with artificial Chocolate flavoured noodles in a Styrofoam pot?  It could happen… :o)

 Warm beer to be served in fridge

In Vietnam Officials are trying to enforce a Law to say Beer can only be sold in a Cold Room?  No doubt pushed by the family that own a chain of expensive Air-conditioned Bars and not at all an effort to squeeze out the small independent retailer. Is there anywhere in the world governments are not dancing to the beat of corporations?
