Gourmet Safari Singles (Individual Recipes)

“Spreading the love, one recipe at a time.”

Yes, I know the Gourmet Safari Albums (Complete Menus) are impressive and bold in taste, flavour and effort required (if I don’t say so myself).  No time, no worries – as we all know, practicality has everything to do with all things creative including culinary…and oh relationary in the bedrooms of the nation! If you want to create a more simplified ‘Gourmet L-O-V-E’ meal, (for instance), feel free to chose from any of the ‘A la carte Singles’ (Recipes), create your own menu and bring lady luck to dine at your dinner table.  Trust me…same magic applies AND the menu is your own creation!

“Hasta La Vista Baby” Cardamom Rice Pudding

This rice pudding has a nice twist to it, definitely not your traditional rice pudding (I know, I grew up with many, many rice puddings in my lifetime). It takes time and a lot of stirring, but it’s worth the effort, trust me on that. I love the flavours that the spices add and the crunch of the pistachios add a nice crunchy texture to this dish!

Rice paper and spring rolls were invented by the Vietnamese, but the Thai people very quickly inherited them!
