Since we have become the men of the house, we have had to step up to the cooking plate as it were, and help in providing healthy and nutritious meals on a whole new level, chez nous …. …………. and in that process ....we have found Gok ….
Each day we meticulously plan and then try out a new recipe from his book, after we’ve watched his programme for the umpteeth time, (we have set it to record so we never miss a minute) And ....... if we could be so bold ….. we think we are getting quite good at it …. in fact, at the weekend, Tom and the Lovely Laura declared that our Twice Cooked Melting Belly Pork was of restaurant standard …. which made us feel sooooo proud in a swelling heart type nature.
….. for example Gok’s “Three Degrees” of garlic, spring onions and ginger …. (which, to be honest were strangers in our pantry before we found the aforementioned Mr Wan) both cathartic and an emotional laxative.
fermented fervent about Gok and his cooking have we become that Darrell is making a special trip to Birmingham tomorrow in order to purchase all the Chinese comestibles that we can’t source locally in Wolverhampton like fermented black beans …. which is soooooo and tooooooo exciting!
