One good friend sent me 10 pods of vanilla beans for souvenir to my house in Thailand when I was in Sydney . So it is about the time to use... Let's see what I made :D
The table was set around 3 pm. I was quite excited already.
Haha... Sous chef Pojwaree (Ja)
Christmas tree for Christmas time !
Entree : Sweet & Spicy Oriental Salad : Green Mango, Cucumber, Carrot, Green bean & Coriender dressed in home-made sweet & spicy sauce (by Ja) Deryk created the menu sounds so special..haha
Deryk was in charge of the main dishes. (head chef lol). Last time when I was studied with him in WAI, 2007, he was quite slow (haha...sorry deryk) but this time I was very surprised that he is a lot more professional since he got experience from working as a pasta chef in Melbourne.
Main 1 : Chicken Chesseur - chicken pieces braised in white wine and chicken stock.
Main 2 : Braised Lamb shank : Lamb shank slow-cook in fresh garden herbs and red wine reduction
Everyone who had this dish love it.. They said it was so tender and flavoursome. You can tell how they love it by the empty plate after meal.. so clean ..haha
Party time !
Ok...now it was my turn !
Uncle can't consume sugar so Deryk prepared the cheese platter him. I was quite amazed how beautiful he made the platter. ( in my idea .. ;P)
