This is one of those dishes that's really exciting to eat - the flavours are really fragrant and light. Steamed fish and rice is always a winner, especially with Thai flavours. If you've got a good fishmonger, using other fish like red mullet, prawns or squid to mix things up a bit is a great idea. It's easy to put together and loads of fun to serve the tray at the table.

Sushi is a general term for all food with sumeshi or vinegared rice. Sushi should never be put in the fridge (it will go hard). The vinegar will help preserve it for a few days if kept, wrapped, in a cool place, such as a shady windowsill. To make sushi rice, boil 15 percent more water than rice. Don't take the lid off during cooking, or you will spoil the rice. Vinegared Rice - Sumeshi 10 Feb 2011
Once deep-fried, the puffs, unlike fresh bean curd which will perish within 2-3 days even when refrigerated, can be kept for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

This is a whole chicken dish, beloved of the Southern Chinese. If the chicken is hand-plucked in the old-fashioned way, it will be coloured an even russet brown by the soy sauce and sugar mixture. However, when a chicken is machine-plucked, as it usually is in the West, the colouring will not be as successful. Fortunately, the aromatic soy sauce taste is not affected in any way. Soy Sauce Chicken 14 Oct 2010
