Chicken & Oyster Mushroom Stir Fry

This chicken and mushroom dish is very satisfying with its sweet savoury sauce. It's easily adaptable to make use other proteins and veggies you may have laying around in the fridge. Try switching out the chicken for tofu or the mushrooms for blanched broccoli.

Asian Pulled Pork

This is a rather unique way of using red bean paste; something usually reserved for Chinese desserts. But not having much of a sweet tooth myself, I found another use for it: Asian-inspired pulled pork. This pulled pork is rather sweet, but that's off-set by the saltiness of the soy sauce and tangy acidity of the vinegar.

Toulouse Sausages

I'm reposting this recipe as Toulouse sausages are one of my favourite tubular meats. Here, I've served them simply, with carbonara with homemade pasta. But, they'd have a great starring role in a sausage casserole and are a key ingredient in one of my favourite French dishes: cassoulet.

Kung Pao Chicken

After doing a bit of research into Kung Pao chicken, I found that there are a few different versions depending upon the region of origination in China. So this has become a bit of a mix up of those recipes and I've omitted some of the chillies - my heat tolerance is still pretty low - but feel free to throw in a few dried chillies along with the chicken. My recipe will give you an almost sweet and sour flavour with a background note of heat from the chilli sauce.

Zha Jiang Mian (Fried Sauce Noodles)

This recipe came about after I found some beef mince in the freezer and did a bit of research into Chinese noodle dishes using minced beef and pork.
