Dinner at Julia's

Julia of who is also a pre-u school mate of Momo, invited a few friends for dinner. We also had the company of Camemberu, HungryCow and Derrick.

Well, if Julie Powell of Julia and Julie blogs about mastering French Cooking, Julia Khoo of AromaCookery is blogger and master of Chinese Cooking.

You can see that she's an attentive and meticulous hostess. Look at the cute little flowers ;-)

What did Julia prepare for us?

If you have ever wondered if you should eat fruits before or after the main meal, this will solve your problem. Have it as a starter! (If you are bored this weekend, you can read up about eating fruits before or after meals)

Look how pretty this dish this! The prawn and fruits salad is to be topped with her secret Thai style sauce.

Prawns and Fruit Salad

We know we got to eat your greens. I think everyone (kids included) will gladly eat theirs if they are so light and delicious as prepared by Julia. This is asparagus, sweet peas and shimeiji mushrooms.

The Greens

The dish that makes you finish every grain of rice in your bowl. Stewed Pork belly with mushrooms. Oh I love the gravy from this claypot!

For me the fish loving guy, I am so glad to see Mr Fish! This is Mr Teochew Fish. I notice that I could not communicate with Mr Fish. I can't speak teochew.

I love the soup that Mr Fish is cooked in!

Steamed Fish Teochew Style

A soup boiled and served with love. It's old cucumber soup boiled with chicken, red dates, dried scallops and 北杏 / bei xing (chinese bitter almonds, which are actually apricot kernels).

Delicious soup that nourishes our lungs, maintain our blood pressure, takes away heatiness, eases the stomach etc.

Old Cucumber Soup

After that, we had different kinds of desserts that the guests brought. Oh, we ate, laughed and chattered all the way till nearly 12 midnite.

Thanks Rick and Julia for the wonder meal. Thanks all for the wonderful company.
