Little White Book: Nasi Lemak recipe [video]

Together with Electrolux's Chef-in-Residence Eric Low, we did a live recording demonstration at TANGS on Orchard on how to prepare Nasi Lemak.  The recipe is Chef Eric's very own.  It's supremely easy to make at home, not to mention delicious. Visit The Little White Book's facebook page here for more information and the recipe.

Chef Inspired Recipes: Robuchon Potato Puree [video/recipe]

This short series is for the amateur cook who wants to recreate some of the world's best known dishes in the comfort of their own home.  I've tailored the recipes so that even the most novice cook can give it a try, and still impress special guests.

Filmed in Brand New Media's kitchen studio, I've worked on a short cooking series with Food For Life TV for Victoria Cheng's Chef Inspired Recipes (also on Starhub ch 109, 4ME TV).  Here's the fifth episode inspired by Chef Joël Robuchon's potato puree recipe.

I mention it in the video, but please take note to use the potatoes that are recommended - it makes all the difference.  The potatoes I'm actually using in the video (I never mention the name) are NOT correct for this recipe. As you can see, the final result is a little 'gummier' than I'd like. Unfortunately, the crew couldn't find the correct potatoes in time (they're lovely people, still!), and the show must go on!  Otherwise, all the techniques still apply.  Add more butter and milk to your taste :)
