Recipe: Spaghetti with truffle


It's always nice to play with the real deal truffle and not a version of it bottled up in oil. It' the first time I tried using this powerful fungus (thanks to MD Provodores) that gives you the oomph and sexiness in a pasta dish. I tried a truffled spaghetti recipe published by Acadamia Barilla and threw in a few extras of what I thought would go with truffle. I didn't have a knife that could shave off the truffle into thin slices so I grated it instead and it should be the last step as if you sprinkle cheese on top of spaghetti to retain all its flavours. You'll find cheese and garlic are great harmonious carriers for the rich earthiness of the truffle's flavour.

Recipe: Lebanese Fattoush Salad


I could’ve walked down to my local shop and bought Lebanese bread for $1.50 to make my fattoush salad but I chose not to and decided to make my own Lebanese bread.
