Asian Fusion by Phengphian Laogumnerd
One type of cuisine that is currently making the rounds is Asian fusion food, something that Phengphian Laogumnerd Cuisine is renowned for. Fusion food essentially means dishes that are infused with elements of different types of cooking and can be presented to the diner in many different forms. These can be based on one particular culture but prepared with the ingredients and different flavours associated from another culture. The sole purpose of this is to provide diners with imaginative dishes that offer new flavours and experiences.
One of our absolute favourite Asian Fusion inspired recipes at Phengphian Laogumnerd Cuisine is our roast pork in chilli and black bean sauce using the finest and ethically sourced pork belly. Once you get the hang of it, it really is very simple indeed to cook. You heat two tablespoons of oil in a wok until hot, then stir fry the pork until it is a golden colour. You can then add ginger, pepper and chilli to give a spicy taste to it. Then add the black bean sauce, this is usually made out of black beans, garlic, spring onions and shallots. Stir fry the entire mixture and turn on to a warm serving platter and you’re ready to indulge!

One side that we adore here at Phengphian Laogumnerd Cuisine is the spicy roasted bok choy and only takes about two minutes to cook! Bok choy if often used in a stir fry or soup so roasting makes it that bit more unique. Cut the vegetable into quarters lengthways, and whisk together the olive oil, sesame oil, garlic, red pepper flakes and sesame seeds! Finally cook the bok choy and drizzle marinade over the wedges. It only takes a few minutes to roast until its crisp and ready to eat. It really is the perfect accompaniment to any meal.
