If there ever is a HPC in future, these would definitely be on the menu. My favourites picks for lunch.
Check out what zzz had for lunch, without me!
Chorizo Iberico can be eaten without cooking as it is cured. Portion about 4 cm of chorizo per person. Remove the papery/plasticky skin by lightly scoring the skin and peeling it off. Slice thinly, about 4 mm per slice. Let it sit for at least 10 minute to bring to room temperature before eating. Pair with a full bodied wine, almonds and sweet fruits.
Baked Chicken Leg Burger
1 chicken leg quarter (leg plus thigh) per person
your favourite bread
Season chicken legs with salt, pepper and your desired herbs (optional). Arrange onto a baking sheet and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Bake chicken in a 200 deg C oven for 30-45 mins or until skin is nicely brown and crisp (time depends on how much chicken is loaded into the oven). Remove from oven and let it cool a little.
Lightly toast your favourite bread (a brioche with apricots and almonds was used in the picture above). Remove the bones from the chicken and assemble the burger with lots of parsley.
1 cup double/whipping cream (>30% fat)
1/2 cup (100g) sugar
juice of 1 lemon
Bring cream and sugar to a boil in saucepan over medium heat. Simmer for a minute and remove from heat. Let it cool for a minute before stirring in lemon juice. Leave to cool for 10 minutes and pour into ramekins or glasses. Chill in fridge until set, about 3 hours.
Was a pretty quiet NYE celebration for us this year. I spent my cross-over of 2010 into 2011 zonked out on the sofa while zzz surfed the additional channels complimentary of Starhub TV. Although my neighborhood was abit ‘happening’ with a 2-3 minutes fireworks display opposite Khatib MRT station (missed it, heard the boomings)
Anyways, we invited YJ and EL for a NY lunch. zzz prepared a simple roasted veggie burgers (alternate roasted chicken burgers), salad and roasted potatoes with the duck fat. Cupcakes and ice-cream for desserts. Definitely was a yummy start to the year Cheers!
