Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas

Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas

Are fish and chips the greatest meal ever conceived by humankind? Obviously. Anyone who disagrees can send their arguments to opinionswithnomerit@marblingandmarrow.com. Why then, can’t I get any decent fish and chips in Singapore?! The only reason can be that the country has only been subjected to a sub-par imitation of the world’s leading food pairing. Anyway, I can’t buy it, so I guess I’ll have to make it. FINE.

Falafel

Falafel

I love meat, but there’s really nothing wrong with meals without any. In fact, it’s a lot better for you to miss it out often. One of my favourite non-meat-related meals is anything to do with falafel. The herby, soft interior within the crunchy shell […]

Ultimate Crispy Fried Chicken

Ultimate Crispy Fried Chicken

For many people around the world fried chicken is the ultimate in comfort food, and it’s not hard to see why really. A crispy outer layer hiding a juicy and meaty centre is about as good as it gets when it comes to texture. But the flavour is what really pushes fried chicken up to the top of the list. With a decent brine or marinade (especially with buttermilk) alongside a well seasoned breading, and you’re going to be arriving on flavour mountain in no time. Anyway, I wanted some so I thought I’d have a go, and it was pretty good, so here it is…
