Cooking

Cooking intuitively from your pantry, fridge and freezer can help you to create cost effective dishes that will impress your family and friends. By cleverly using your kitchen finds, you’ll put a flavoursome dinner on the table any day of the week. I encourage ingredient swaps in these two recipes. Yam for squash, sausage for spicy salami etc.

Pok Pok was a famous Thai restaurant in Portland by Chef Andy Ricker. I used to be lucky enough to live down the street from this place, and I remember the chicken wings like it was yesterday. It’s sad that this Michelin star and James Beard award winning restaurant closed during the pandemic, but its chicken-wing legacy lives on. 

What makes these wings so special is the tangy flavour of the chicken with layers of caramelized sweet chili sauce on the outside. It’s finished with fresh basil and cilantro for a delicious fresh touch. The recipe requires a bit of oven-watching.
