Lets learn something about tawarikh today..not tarawih ok..:-P and the art of dining
Hubby came back from UTM yesterday and told me that he brought back one special book...I thought it is an architectural book or something like that..instead he got me this interesting book of 4 former PM's favourite food; lets have fun looking at these mouth watering photos...
Demographic and cultural background play a major role in our culinary and cuisine and taste..from these former PM we can see a diversity of taste..
Front cover with royal purple
Belajar mengenal rempah ratus..
Tunku Abdul Rahamn Putra al-Haj -PM No. 1
Istana Pelamin, Aloq Staq Kedah
Taste : Malay and Fusion
Sambal belacan...pekena dengan gulai ikan temenung lemak...boleh tambah tiga pinggan nasi
One of must-have menu on Tunku's table
Gulai Ikan Talang..my hubby's favourite too..menu wajib bila balik kampung, my mom use rempah Cap Tarbus which could only be bought in Kedah
And...Jus Peria...Tunku's daily diet before breakfast
Macam susah nak telan je ni..
He also loves Kuih Sepera (mcm karipap)
Tun Abdul Razak - PM No.2
Taste : More to Traditional Malay
Gulai Tempoyak Ikan Patin
Geram tengok gambar ikan ni...
Tun Hussein Onn - PM No 3
Taste : Middle East and Traditional Johore cuisine
Air Beyh..Middle East drink with mixture of herbs and spices, exotic aroma and good for health
Kacang Pul /kacang parang -for Tun Hussein's breakfast..also a Middle East staple
Tun Hussein preferred fine dining with formal touch, influenced from his military experience
Tun Suhailah (Tun Hussein's wife)...ehemm..isn't she a beauty..we share the same name but not popularity :-P She look like a Primadona in this photo
Tun Dr Mahathir - PM No. 4
Aloq Staq, Kedah...near my house
Taste: lihatlah sindri....
Sambal kelapa..more to mamak taste :-)
Dalca..wajib dengan nasi tomato or beriyani
I bet Tun mesti pernah makan Nasi Lemak Royal and Nasi Lemak Ali..betoi dak
And guess what..roti and kari semalam are his fav too..I kid you not!!..cuba pi The Loaf
The Chef - Kak Orkid
My lil Chef at home..tumbuk kacang goreng
Dato Seri Abdullah - PM No. 5
...tak termasuk list lagi masa ni...but one thing for sure he loves to read
Part of their collection
While Jean loves landscape..
Moi standing next to their art collection..mcm kuih pau je muka!!!
I think somebody wants me to cook something special rather than just ayam kicap and nasi goreng....eh nasi goreng you yang selalu suruh i masak...'udang kering lebih' .. ...So next time, when I asked you 'what's for dinner honey?', please don't just say..'apa pun takpa..'..(typical kan)...just name it..ewahh..
Syazwan..balik mai sini nanti kita pi makan nasi Arab kat Cyberjaya..minum Barbican
For further read please proceed to UTM's library or any bookstore ye..
Laparla pulak...need to go and 'buy' (not cook ye) my lunch now :-)
Bon Apetite people..
