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 […]

Pan-Fried Duck Breast with Potato and Port

Pan-Fried Duck Breast with Potato and Port

This week’s recipe is a family favourite in our house. I suppose it’s kind of an amalgamation of our favourite things; a simply pan-fried duck breast for Su, and the fondant potato for me. Why do I prefer the potato to the meat? Well try making […]

Alternative Christmas Dinner with Salmon

Alternative Christmas Dinner with Salmon

So last week’s Christmas spectacular was a bit more of the standard-style British roast dinner type thing. This week I’m offering a more alternative Christmas dinner in contrast to the more ‘normal’ style by going for another British favourite, Indian (well my take on it […]

Christmas Roast Duck with the Trimmings

Christmas Roast Duck with the Trimmings

Hohoho! Christmas dinner has this terrible reputation of being a complete nightmare for whichever poor sap has been lumped with cooking it. But really, it’s just a glorified roast dinner with a few extra bits and bobs. With a bit of planning and work the […]

Braised Beef Cheek Ragu with Strapponi

Braised Beef Cheek Ragu with Strapponi

I’m on a bit of a comfort food kick at the moment, and for this one, I’m going back to the braised meat, but this time going for a beef cheek ragu, served with the laziest ‘shape’ of pasta on the planet, strapponi. The base […]

Beef Short Ribs with Polenta and Parmesan

Beef Short Ribs with Polenta and Parmesan

There aren’t many things in the world as comforting as a something braised for dinner on a cold day. Unfortunately, in Singapore, there aren’t ever any cold days, but it doesn’t mean I can’t still imagine them. One of the things that make braising meat […]

Squash Ravioli with Sage Butter

Squash Ravioli with Sage Butter

I’ve never been much of a pasta person when I go out to restaurants unless it’s an Italian place of course. It’s not the same everywhere, but in the UK many pubs and restaurants have a sort of mixed bag of items on the menu, […]

Squid Ink Tagliatelle with Squid, Tomatoes and Capers

Squid Ink Tagliatelle with Squid, Tomatoes and Capers

Squid ink tagliatelle is one of those things that just looks great on a plate, primarily because it just seems so unusual. We have this notion that black and grey are the absolute last colours we should ever want our food to have, and in […]

Crispy Pork Belly with Beans and Salsa Verde

Crispy Pork Belly with Beans and Salsa Verde

Out of all the meats in the world, for me, pork is the king. Not only can you use the whole animal for true nose-to-tail eating, but the flavour is immense. If I could only eat one meat again for the rest of my life, […]

Miso-Glazed Salmon, Edamame, Couscous

Miso-Glazed Salmon, Edamame, Couscous

Living in hot and humid Singapore food can’t be just heavy heavy heavy all the time (unfortunately). Although there is a place for the stodgy Western flavours of braised meat and mashed potato or sticky toffee pudding, it’s not very often. I haven’t stopped sweating […]
