Having digested many recipe books in bits, pieces and glossy versions, I made Shanghai Fried Rice, Mixed vegetables in Oyster sauce and Bread Pudding. The first two turned out really well, the flavors and colors came alive and just tasted awesome. The pudding - I've kept it to set in the fridge - lets see how it will turn out - it smells divine though.
Reminds me of a quote by Voltaire, "Nothing could be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity."
What do you think?
