Munching Through Malaysia

Beef Rendang

Last evening I watched Rick Stein munching his way through Malaysia.
This was a repeat viewing as I had seen his Far Eastern Odyssey while in Singapore.

His rapturous description of beef rendang had me salivating and dreaming of my years in Singapore and the many delightful Malay meals I had eaten.

I miss the punchy spiciness of this cuisine and much as fresh New Zealand bread and dairy produce has its attractions, I still prefer Malay and Chinese food.

Stein is an interesting man who, while identified with Cornwall, in fact now lives in Mollymook, Australia, with his publicist fiancée. His father committed suicide and he has a brother who is a university professor.
