In Momofuku, Chang mentions that his Scallion Oil is one of Momofuku’s mother sauces. He basically says you can’t live without it and I tend to agree. Scallion oil, or green onion oil, as I like to call it, is a delicious, delicious sauce. While I tend to like my recipe better than his, I’ll definitely back up his claim about never going hungry with green onion oil in your fridge.

Fried rice, much like how you cook your instant noodles, is a very personal thing.
Is there anything more delicious than crispy pork, eggs, pasta and cheese? Carbonara just may be my favourite way to eat breakfast foods at dinner. The very first time I heard about carbonara, I was in my late teens.

I love pavlova; the crisp shattering shell that gives way to soft, gooey marshmallow insides gets me every time. I absolutely cannot have pavlova in the house, just because I can (and will) consume the entire thing.
