I'll be on holiday in southern California next week, where I'll feast on Mexican food. One of my favourite taquerias is El Taco Nazo, which specialises in Ensenada-style fried fish tacos. This is my attempt at replicating that dish.

Tai Mei Tuk is only a short bus ride from bustling Tai Po Market MTR station, but is a long way from its pace. Situated beside Tolo Harbour and not far from the picturesque Plover Cove Reservoir, it is a popular spot for barbecue day-trippers, cyclists, boating enthusiasts and amateur anglers.19 Jul 2012 - 12:00am
The quesadilla is one of the first 'international' snacks I remember learning to make. When my brothers and I got home from school, we would have things such as instant noodles, rice crackers and dried cuttlefish - snacks that Asian children around the world seem to eat.24 Jun 2012 - 12:00am
You probably won't be tempted to taste a vegetable called 'corn smut', so let's use its Mexican name, huitlacoche (or cuitlacoche). It's a fungus that infects ears of corn - in other words, it's somewhat like a mushroom.24 Jun 2012 - 12:00am
Monterey Jack isn't the type of cheese you'll find on the cheese board of a Michelin-starred restaurant, nor is it something any connois-seur would wax rhapsodic about. It's a cheese that can be appreciated (in its own way) for its simplicity: it's a mild, straightforward cheese without any complex flavours.17 Jun 2012 - 12:00am

A quesadilla is a Mexican sandwich using tortillas, which are made from flour or corn and look like big, soft pancakes. It can be served as an appetiser, snack or as a light lunch.
This is a basic recipe, but you can add other ingredients such as chicken, sweetcorn, red peppers, mushrooms or ham.

If last night's party was a fun one, you'll probably be feeling a little 'delicate' today. The cure for a hangover is food - but not just any food. Carbs and grease are good - you need something to soak up the excess alcohol.1 Jan 2012 - 12:00am
When I have plenty of time to cook and can plan well enough in advance, I use dried beans for my dishes because I like the taste and texture. But I also usually keep a can or two of chickpeas in my pantry for the times when I need a quick dish. They're versatile and can be made into hearty soups and stews.1 Sep 2011 - 12:00am

I love to cook but after a hard day's work, I'm rarely in the mood for spending hours in the kitchen. To save time, I often roast a chicken on the weekend then use the meat to make quick and easy dishes during the week. If you want to make life even easier, a supermarket roast chicken or a salt-baked chicken (from a roast-meat shop) can be used in the following recipes.12 Sep 2010 - 12:00am
I rarely eat breakfast, but when I do, I almost always choose something savoury. These two dishes are hearty but a little time-consuming (although not difficult), so are better reserved for a leisurely weekend.
