Last week I found myself having to prepare dinner for guests at short notice and, with some quick thinking, I managed to knock up a meal with a barbeque roasted chicken from the supermarket.

La Taverna Mediterranean Bistro http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/13685-la-taverna-mediterranean-bistro.html http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/13685-la-taverna-mediterranean-bistro.html

Ever since an embarrassing incident during a Middle Eastern Studies class at university, in which I unwittingly confused a Gaza-based terror group with a Middle Eastern chickpea dip, I haven’t had much of an appetite for Mediterranean food.

Another day, another burrito http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/13649-another-day-another-burrito.html http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/13649-another-day-another-burrito.html

Call me un optimista, but every time I hear about a restaurant in Yangon serving Mexican food, I hope against hope for a complete menu of enchiladas, chile rellenos, tostadas, chimichangas, tamales and chilaquiles.

Located in one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Bangkok along the western bank of the Chao Phraya, this busy and flavoursome district became populated by Chinese traders attracted to the convenience of the river banks in the late 18th century, during the reign of King Rama I.

Faking it with sausages http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/13314-faking-it-with-sausages.html http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/13314-faking-it-with-sausages.html

Tapas are the perfect finger food for parties and easy to prepare. But Spanish tapas dishes often include cured meats or chorizo sausage, which aren’t easy to find in Myanmar – so when I’m cooking tapas I have to be creative.
