Naturally Chinese, Surbiton 

Ahhh, the food I grew up surrounded by, I’m not sure if Chinese food is my out and out favourite, but it’s definitely up there! The idea of feasting on dim sum all day long, grazing on steamed dumplings and fried stuff fills me with joy, literally!! 634 more words

Planned Leftovers with Belly Pork

Surely you knew this was coming? (See yesterday’s chat and recipe for Roasted Belly Pork if you need a reminder.) 

In addition to working on clearing out the freezer (still!) prior to a big defrosting job, I’m also working on clearing out half-empty jars from the fridge, not to mention the cool pantry where I store squashes etc from the allotment for the winter.  236 more words

Being Chinese, my whole family is obsessed with belly pork. Some of my earliest memories are of us eating my Mum’s highly spiced Chinese style belly pork and crunching my way through shards of crackling. 456 more words
