This recipe is an absolutely delicious introduction to eating raw meat. If you’ve ever had carpaccio or steak tartare, this Korean version known as ‘Yuk Hwe’ is a brilliant next step. The sesame dressing is really addictive!
If there is a national dish of Vietnam, it has to be pho. This fragrant noodle soup is slurped around the clock by everyone from business men to students to construction workers, often while squatting on low plastic stools in the street
Traditionally a way to use up leftover vegetables and scraps of meat, fried rice is a quick and cheap way to feed a hungry crowd. This version is a little more decadent using fresh, handpicked white crab meat and a homemade Thai chili jam.
The filling for these dumplings is typically Szechuan – the Szechuan peppercorns have a tingling, numbing flavour that is quite addictive. You’ll soon find yourself ladlling them over your food with abandon just like the Szechuanese!
