My first culinary achievement where people finally believed that I could cook was with a dish called baked rendang chicken. The star attraction in that rich spicy recipe was lemongrass. It’s amazing that something that’s classified as a grass and looks so uninteresting can produce such a sweet smelling fragrance.
Lemongrass is widely used an an herb in Malaysian cooking. Malaysian food is something that I have taken for granted for too long. But when I leave home for long periods of time, I miss it. And when friends from other countries visit and rave about Malaysian food, I am filled with pride.
Entera whiff of lemongrass; a long overdue blog that is dedicated to the rich array of Malaysian food that I’ve come to love. Together with my friends, we formed a foodies club called quite unimaginatively, “The Makan Club”. Don’t blame us, we’re accountants.
We’re proud of our food and we welcome you to explore with us as we bring to you our food findings - orgasmic, good, bad and vomit-inducing - from rat-infested alleys to five-star restaurants. Bouquets would be lovely; brickbats will be taken in the spirit they are delivered.
Selamat menjamu selera, or as they say in English, get your laughing gear round the nosh!
