Having hosted several dinner parties and meeting great people, this round I am doing it a bit differently. My table is usually loaded with food, so much so that there are hardly any space .Now I will serve it in courses.
This event will see a change in the way my food is served. Instead of Malaysian Style, the food will be served Western Style, ie, in courses. 2018 ushers in a new year so a little change is good.
If you are suffering from left-over hang-over, come over to my home and have a tasty and healthy meal.
I am sharing my family favourites, some old and some new ones. This menu is not exactly Malaysian, but more of a 'Eurasian'. Where I come from, we refer to people of mixed heritage, i.e., of Caucasian and Asian heritage, as Eurasians. Technically speaking Malaysian food is fusion food as it combines Chinese, Malay and Indian cooking. So now this menu is more of European, or rather Eurasian.
Welcome drinks and nibbles
A vegetable soup to keep you warm
Chicken and Cranberry Baked Rice
Oven baked chicken thighs with cranberries and seasoning. This is an 'East Meets West' dish with Chinese and Western influence. Juicy chicken thighs are seasoned in aromatic spices and seasoning and fried and then baked in rice. The result is a feast for the eyes and the stomach!
Served with Stir-fried Vegetables (Depending on what fresh vegetables I can get on the day).
We finish the meal with Torta de Santiago - A luscious, home made Spanish Almond Tart served with warm custard, a family favourite
Tea and Coffee
There is plenty of non-alcoholic drinks, juice and water available.
There is off-road parking.
If you have any allergy do let me know.
