Jun 26, 2015 – [Friday] Anything Goes: Meat

Glasgow, Scotland, taken on June 20, 2015

My Sichuanese friend, who sure knows how to make a lot of authentic Sichuanese dishes (which are all very spicy), presented us with this “water-cooked pork slices” – that’s the literal translation of the name of the dish in Chinese. But don’t be fooled! Although “water-cooked” may imply blandness, this dish is anything BUT bland! Aside from the big delicious chunks of meat, there is also an abundance…of chili peppers! You gotta have a strong stomach to handle this 😉

January 05, 2015 – Spicy intestines

Yes – you are probably thinking that the words “spicy” and “intestines” shouldn’t go together, but in fact they do. Chinese people love to eat strange things but you can’t blame us when spicy stir-fried pig intestines taste so good. Finally a meal back in Glasgow – I made it safely!

November 02, 2012 – Spicy salty crispy shrimp

I have decided to hone my cooking skills, and my culinary experiments start in Bordeaux with this Chinese-style spicy salty crispy shrimp. Indeed, it was spicy, salty, and crispy, just the way it’s supposed to be. The challenge is deep frying, which is really more of a hassle than a challenge. The feedback was positive, so maybe I can try it with squid next time. Go go chef!
