Chinese Pot Sticker Dumplings:

Chinese Pot Sticker Dumplings: thekitchenman loves a good pot sticker wonton. Lots of restaurants serve up the frozen packaged variety. A good indication that a cook is worthy is by his pot sticker. On January 28th Chinese New Year many familys sit around a table and prepare the family celbration for good fortune. My favourite retaurant makes the dumplings that are so lite and tasty. Yum! I was shown this recipe by the chefs grandmother who for some 80 years made the family dumplings each day. Now that’s dedication. My chef friend and myself sat around a table and I...
New Years Chinese Dim Sum

The sign to thekitchenman that you’re about to get some mighty fine tasting duck bbq! Half with some sticky rice and sauce is all you need! Some steamed bokchoy and jasmine tea and your still under twenty bucks!         thekitchenman loves Dim Sum.

Fried Egg with Chili Pork Belly Bacon

The Thai, Mandarin, Vietnamese fusion foods are usually found on the Victoria, King Edward corridor in East Vancouver. Literally hundreds of little family run pop-up diners line the streets. Even the market stores have a BBQ or a wok fryer going full steam somewhere in the store. I found that these store cafeteria style eateries are providing cheap eats for the average street New Canadian. Some of these diners use real plate ware and some just a box or a napkin. Like dim-sum,… only hundreds of more interesting tasty options. This simple Fried Egg with Chili Pork...
I always like to know, what’s cooking and who is cooking it!

I always like to know, what’s cook...

When I travel and stay at a resort or hotel, I always like to know, what’s cooking and who is cooking it! Breakfast is usually the first meal that will tell you if the kitchen is up to snuff. A good selection of choices made to order or served gratis buffet style.         Lunch you get to try the freshness of the produce and how inventive the pantry section is. I like a salad that packs a lot of interesting flavours and textures. This Crispy Flying Fish garden delight tells me that the cook, is a good one. Finally, dinner and you get to try the...
Dover Beach Barbados

Dover Beach Barbados

My stay at Infinity on the Beach Christ Church St. Lawrence Gap was most excellent. Had lots of plans to get out and explore but found that Dover Beach had everything one could ask for while on a Caribbean holiday. The food and drink at Sea Fans kept me coming back for more. The cocktails were awesome. It’s true! I found that the food court had so many good places to try island cuisine and experience some cou-cou, fire roasted bread fruit, rice and peas with goat, lamb stew, fried flying fish or grilled yellow fin, snapper, mahi-mahi, dorado and fish cakes. The...
