I'm always busy in the kitchen even on my day-off, but I enjoy it. From top left, spicy Thai basil chicken with couscous, coconut-pandan sorbet with taro compote, lychee gelee with poached pear, Thai crab cakes, spicy noodle and honey-wasabi seared tuna.
Talking about working in the kitchen, I really enjoy making ice cream and sorbet. The flavors I make will never be found in any supermarket. Otherwise, what's the point. I feel like if I have to pay extra money to eat at the restaurant, I prefer something different, something that I couldn't get from my local groceries. Although I often get some questions like "Who made these crazy ice cream? or What the heck is this flavor? or I'm not sure this is my kind of flavor", I still feel like they need more flavors. :P
These questions make me smile every time I hear them. They tell me how people react to what they don't familiar with. This is why I like to introduce them new flavors. If it works, great. If it's not, fine. I always appreciate any comments and complains. :)
