Creamy Coconut Spiced Chicken Soba Noodle Pata

While im on vacation in Paris, i have a couple of seconds to write this auick little post for this video i made right before leaving Manila. I had set out to make a dish which really embodies the mixing of flavours and textures. We all know fusion food has come and gone, but has it really left? I hated the absolute definition of fusion food: “two culinary cultures coming together – i.e: terriyaki duck confit”, i thought it was too easy of a label and much too obvious.Sadly, today it is still being done. However, foodies and the serious culinary world have banned the term, to pave the way for a type of cuisine that just makes more sense. Nowasays, almost everything is global, fro, the products we use to the citizens themselves. In a near future, i dont find it hard to believe that our children’s children will all speak at least 4 languages and have family spread out across many oceans. Same goes for our food, we dont need to take two dishes and put them together to make something exciting, all we need to do is use the knowledge we have of other cuisines and incorporate it in new enticing or comforting ways in our dishes. There is no such thing a something completely new, because everything is inspired by something passed. All we can do is respect the original and a little sumtin sumtin.

Since im travelling, i’ve left my notebook where i write all my recipes in, in Manila. But the recipe is pretty straight forwared and clear through the video; nonetheless i will be completing this when i return soon.

Bon Apetit et a bientot!

      Thank you so much for this! Finally, I’ll be able to try one of your recipes! I’ve been eager to try one but I couldn’t really afford all the ingredients. This one looks easy to cook plus the ingredients are very affordable since it’s all local, so I find it perfect for students like me :) Btw, it’s okay to use spaghetti noodles for this right? :)

      1. Erwan Heussaff September 26, 2011 at 3:20 am

        its really better to use soba noodles! but if you want yes you can substitue. Soba is from Japan so its really not that expensive :)

      wanna try it, but what I want to have are the knives you were using it’s powerful…

      One thing is bothering me though, I WANT TO KNOW THE TITLE OF THE SONG ON YOUR INTRO SCENE! ^_^

      Mmmmkay thanks! Keep up the good work! =)

      I tried this recipe just a few minutes ago. I’m humming and dancing because it’s that goooood! I made this for my baon but I want to devour everything, now na, hahaha.

      Made this meatless though by substituting chicken with tofu, which I fried before.

      Will make a bigger batch for the family over the weekend, yay!

      Kudos with your blog! :)

      Btw, love your tunes as well.

      I’m looking for a good cleaver just like the one you have. Which brand do you recommend?


      1. Erwan August 30, 2012 at 8:13 am

        i bought mine in China :)




I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
