Away from the hot kitchens, some of us have been enjoying ourselves. 😉
Kuchi and Khamhoung met up in Laos for a few days during their recent holidays.
Kuchi crossed over from Nongkai and spent a few nights in Vientiane before visiting the former Capital and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Luang Prabang.
Snakebite is a name that is normally associated with a cocktail drink (50% Lager Beer and 50% Cider). But the photos below bring a whole new meaning to the word.
If Snake is not your tipple, how about Giant Centipede?
Meanwhile, back in Spain and the Kitchens, work continues.
Nuts About You, was the name given to one of our new Amuse Bouche. Cashew Nuts are dry roasted before being fried with Garlic, Shallots, Chillies and Herbs. They make a great accompaniment to a cold beer or a Snakebite ( 😆 ).
Sushi Dragon Rolls make a welcome appearance. The velvety softness of the Avocado followed by the crunchiness of the King Prawns that have firstly been deep fried in Panko Crumbs.
This dish also includes Amadraba Tuna Sashimi, which has a “melt-in-the-mouth” texture.
Finally, a preview of one of our new dishes which evolved from our New Style “Goong Che Nam Pla”.
This small dish is being tested for our 7 Course Gala New Year Menu, and will no doubt go through some changes before being served at the last dinner of 2007.
