Tanggal 26 November 2015 kemarin saya dapat bingkisan istimewa dari Black Garlic Indonesia, satu express box yang isinya dua menu dan masing-masing menu bisa untuk dua porsi. Enak banget gak sih 😉 Adalah teman saya, Dita Soehardi yang memperkenalkan Black Garlic lewat foto di IG-nya @dita_soe. Langsung dong saya meluncur ke website Black Garlic dan kepengen. Alhamdulillah, memang dasar rejeki, baru merencanakan untuk pesan eh malah ditawarin gratis sama Dita. Rejeki memang gak kemana ya 🙂 Singkat cerita, setelah deg-degan takut pas kurir datang pas saya ke luar kota, si kurir malah datang. Seneng campur kaget campur nyesel juga, karena prosedur dari Black Garlic, si Kurir harus foto bareng dengan penerima box dan saya lagi dalam kondisi berantakan. Pas banget deh, udahpun saya gak fotojenik (itulah salah satu alasan kenapa saya jadi tukang foto), berantakan pulak, komplit deh 😀...

Asinan Bengkuang (Pickled Jicama)

Posted by on Nov 23, 2015 in Featured, Indonesian Culinary, Kitchenette, Vegetarian | 0 comments

When it comes to asinan bengkuang (pickled jicama) the yummiest one was the one made by my neighbor. Not only its taste, but the memory behind it, a beautiful and happy childhood, when life was simpler that prevent me from moving on. Unfortunately, she (my neighbor) has retired from making and selling it and left me in forever searching. Until one day, my sister came home brought me a packaged of asinan bengkuang. At first, I was skeptical..afraid of having a broken heart if the taste is not good as the one my neighbor made. Still I gave it a try and I was happy! This is it! My childhood’s fav food. By the way, do you know that Jícama is high in carbohydrates in the form of dietary fiber. It is composed of 86–90% water; it contains only...

The story began when a little boy lose his appetite. Bibu’s trying hard to cook something special so his appetite will rise again. It started with Pfannkuchen, then Bubur Ayam, following by Burger and some more until one day he said: “Bibu, I want to eat siomay abang-abang”. When he said abang-abang, means I have to make the one with more tapioca flour than the fish. By the way, abang-abang is a male street vendor. Then, the story continued by me searching for the recipe, but nothing is really interest me. Actually I once posted the recipe of street vendor siomay in Multiply (MP), but since MP is shutdown and I didn’t back up all my recipes there, so… nothing. One thing I remembered is this siomay must be rubbery (hence the big amount of tapioca flour). Luckily, I...

Been away for ages from blogging. I just need to find my mojo, so I can be a good blogger once more. For the sake of hosting and domain fee, let me start by sharing you my mom’s recipe. Yup, it’s my mom’s, my son’s grandma (but I do believe that she got the recipe from my late grandma, her mother). Ayam Pedas is also known as Ayam Balado. We called it ayam pedas as it is spicy (pedas), though sometimes my mom didn’t make it that hot. My son, loves ayam pedas as much his cousins love it. Everybody loves my mom’s ayam pedas, including our relatives and friends. My son, can eat ayam pedas everyday, three times a day. He never get bored of it and for him, ayam pedas nenek is the best. Funny thing happened...

Gosh… October will end in 7hours (GMT+7) and I haven’t posted anything. Should I still call my self as a blogger? I don’t think so. I supposed to make a give away last 3 weeks, but suddenly something came up on the way that took the biggest part of my time and mind. Now I’m in a process on making everything right, I hope I’ll get the best result soon. Please pray for me. Thanks. Maybe it’s not a good idea to back in blogging with jengkol, as you know.. some people deny to like it for they are afraid to be called kampungan if they like to eat it. But I believe, jengkol is very popular among us, Indonesians 😉 According Wikipedia, Jengkol has a Latin name Archidendron pauciflorum (synonym A. jiringa, Pithecellobium jiringa, dan P. lobatum)   is...
