Calling all you foodies – ChefDB

Friday, November 20th, 2009

The film industry has IMDB. Now the food industry has ChefDB. What a brilliant idea. It’s a database of restaurants, who works in them, where they’ve worked and related links.

Genius.

Now, you can track your favorite chefs. See when ratings started going up or down.. and why. You can see where else these same people have worked in the past, to find other restaurants that you might want to go to as well. Or where they are headed to in the future, so you can bookmark that as a place you want to try out.

Pure Genius.

Chicken wing update

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

I tried last night at a Bar called B.F.D. in Singapore… and realized that this is a much more difficult problem in Asia than in the US. You see, in Asia, Chicken wings are served whole. When you order a chicken wing here, usually it comes with the Drumette, Wing and tip all attached. So, to separate the bones, you need to break down more connective tissue and if the wing is already cooked throughly, the meat just comes apart.

I’ll need to investigate this matter more thoroughly by visiting Hooters in Clarke Quay. 😉

When an inch isn’t an inch

Friday, November 13th, 2009

I just found out there is a measurement called a Cun or a Chinese Inch. How confusing is that? The Chinese inch is a bit longer than the American inch.

1 Chinese Inch = 1.762 American Inches… I think. :)
