Dim sum and Chorizo surprise!

I went to celebrate a colleagues' Bday in China Town yesterday, I got a hankerin' for some dim sum, so I went back today (about 1 min from my work) and bought some frozen prawn dumpling. 2 mins in my steamer (bamboo wok thing) and hey presto, a starter!

I nicked Chorizo recipe from Nigella Lawson (yummy). It's fantastically intricate and messy involving millions of bowls and pans etc... OK OK you need an oven dish. That's it!

I chunky cut some new potatoes and added them to the dish with chunks of chorizo. You could stop their but I added crushed garlic, a couple of mushrooms I had left over and a small onions (sliced). Salt, pepper and add boiling water to cover. Violá, done!

200C in the oven, 1hr give or take.

Gordon Ramsey and Rick Stein are my favourites. Nigella is just sumptuous. Her cooking isn't bad either! :-)

Yeeah Chinatown. Sounds fun! I wonder what it's like compared to the NY version...
Dim sum.mmmm! I'm so hungry now. It's my late lunchtime and your dinner time.
Hmm, what shall we eat next?

Mona: I don't decide to eat anything until I'm at the butcher/supermarket/ocean. I was reading some cookery books earlier and was attracted to mushrooms, crostini, cheese... not sure what my subconcious will do with it until I'm ready to buy :-)

Cindy: well, yeah... about the pics. My kitchen is downstairs. My eating area (couch) is much nearer.

I'm not a photo[genic) person, the only thing close to a camera is my webcam (see bread entry a few months back)... ok, i'm lazy, I said it!
