Such a beautiful day that I had a chance to go to Flee market which is just right in front of my apartment. I walked around then a stand which full of mushrooms caught my eyes. I grabbed some cep mushrooms to make as side dish with my grilled chicken. This would be wonderful. Mmmm
It’s so French, lol… Cèpe persillé…
Here I needed
200g of cep mushrooms
Half brunch of persil ( minced)
2 cloves of garlic ( minced)
Chicken cooking sauce (Since I also grilled my chicken, I use some chicken cooking sauce for my cep mushrooms recipes)
A pin of salt and black pepper for seasoning
How to make it
Cleaned up mushrooms and throw few second in hot boiling water to clean the dirt from them, then rinse with cold water.( advice from the seller lol)… cut as you desire then set aside.
Heat a frying pan wait until it turns hot then put chicken cooked sauce in. Next add minced garlic and persil. stir well until you smell fragrance from the mixture then put your mushrooms in. stir well, salt and pepper. stir again for couple of minutes the voila.
What’s a nice Sunday afternoon! Today is different, I am free from cooking. I am invited to have my Lunch in one of very famous brasseries in Lyon, Brasserie Georges. I’ve always heard about this restaurant. So yeahhhhh!!!!
I walked down the street which was not so glamour, suddenly I found myself in front of an immense entrance, I was welcomed by charming waiter in very old chic fashion. Mmmmm I felt back in old French era. He guided me to my table. Very high ceiling, lots of red benches and white table, few great big chandeliers and the decoration is simple yet so elegant , but somehow my first impression was factory.
The service was good, they gave me menu and I ordered the suggestion of chef, for me that would be the best of the day.
Hock of pork with mashed potatoes
Gratin of red fruit
To be honest the dishes were ok, that’s Lyon foods, but there are alot better in town. I still enjoyed it, even though I couldn’t finish my dish.
I love the small old machine which made birthday songs. That’s so cool!!!
One of the restaurants in my list is tasted. I am happy!!!

Almost Khmer new year, nostalgic!!! When I was a little girl, my mum made this dish, stir fried clear noodles, for special occasion only such as Khmer new year, Pchum Ben… We can make it in different ways. Today I made one in my own way,,,
Here what we need
3 small clear noodles
Tofu ( cut in very small cubs )
1 cup of dry black fungus mushroom ( soak them in water then slide thinly )
5 black mushroom ( soak them in water and slide thinly )
dry shrimps ( vegetarian you can ignore this one )
1 shallots ( thinly slide )
ginger ( thinly slide )
1 cup of water
feel free to adjust to your taste, 😉
3 tbp of oyster sauce ( mushroom sauce for vegetarian )
1 tbp of fish sauce ( vegetarian you can ignore this one )
2 tbp of soy sauce
1 tsp of dark soy sauce
2 tbp of seame oil
1 tbp of brown sugar ( honey )
mix them togethers
How to make
Heat up a pan and fill with a cup of water, if you have chicken stock even better. When water is boiled put half of the sauce in the water and then put the clear noodles, wait till it almost cooked ( add water if neccesary ) and then remove noodles from the pan. Set aside. by doing this your clear noodle will absorbs the taste of sauce and water. This makes the dish tastes even better
Heat up the pan and put some oil, fry the Tufu till they turn golden brown. set aside
With the same pan you throw ginger, shallots and follow by dry shrimps in. mmmm it will seduce you with the aroma. Then throw mushrooms in. Stir well, then put some of the sauce in. Stir well and let it cook little bit then throw the fried tofu in. Mix them really well.
finally put the cooked clear noodle in. Then green onion just before turn off the heat.

Hello Hello!!!! Such an honor to be invited by my friends who love cooking. I have such a great Sunday with great foods. OH gosh, What else should I expect?!
Today menu are amazing, what I could say was mmmmmmm,, so delicious! apéro as French called them, something you eat before your meal. I actually didn’t like Foie gras poelé but the one which my friend made was so so delicious!!! I share you one of my favorite food for today.
It’s actually so simple to make he gave me the tip to make it well.
after cutting your foie gras, you keep it in the freezer for about 15-20 mins. Then you heat up your pan. Wait until it’s really hot, you don’t need oil ( so cool )… Then put the Foie gras in the pan, turn over after 1 min or so and you serve on toast with little bit sea salt, that’s nothing you can say more than Oh gosh,,, the heaven is just in front of you…
There are so many more but this week is enough just for Foie gras Poelé 😉
