My Favorites: Chinese Bread


While western bakeries are busy pumping out flakey croissants and crusty baguettes that take hours and sometimes days to make, Chinese bakeries here in Hong Kong are making a single dough into every shape imaginable. They then stuff it with meats and cheeses and turn them into tasty soft bready goodnesses. My favorite Chinese Bread is the one pictured above. It’s filled with corned beef and cheese and topped with a crunch that I really have no idea what it is. Do you have a favorite baked good?

My Favorites: Potato Chips


Walkers Salt & Vinegar.

Lay’s, I’m sorry but you’ve met your match, for now.

Walkers seems to make a slightly thicker chip that doesn’t shatter once bitten.  It also seems to be covered in a better vinegar as now when I taste Lay’s it tastes a little chemically.

I’d like to be all American on this one but looks like the Brits win the chip battle…for now.

What’s your favorite chip flavor/brand?

My Favorites

As a (ex)professional chef I’m always being asked about my favorites.  “Hey, what’s your favorite thing to cook?  What’s your favorite wine?  What’s your favorite dessert?  Where is your favorite restaurant?”  As you can see this can become quite tiresome, especially if you’re like me and have a rotating palate (yes, I just made that up).

I COULD name for you a favorite for each of these categories but I typically prefer not to as I’m afraid that by the time the words leave my mouth my palate will javelin already rotated.  Then you might get the wonderful idea to cook my favorite meal for me, or buy me that perfect bottle of wine. It will have been an over-generous gesture which I will greatly appreciate but you might have expected a little more excitement.  I’m sorry, my palate rotated.

I’ve tried many things on this blog and most of them I’ve given up on after 1 or 2 posts.  This time I’ve cheated and have a few in my pocket already so let’s see how long I can keep it going!

Starting tomorrow I’ll be posting my favorites of the moment,  as they strike me, or if you’d like to know one feel free to ask! I’m not going to say daily, but I’ll definitely post more often!

My favorite new idea…this one!
