About Crispy Duck Diary

An ex-investment banking ninja turned domestic diva (not quite yet though – I’m not too great a hand at cleaning) finding her way through a whole new world of food. This blog was started off as preparation for the French culinary course, which I’ve now completed, as I had to teach myself how to differentiate sausages from trotters, and beef from lamb while taking comfort in some old favourites such as mom’s amazing malai curry and pasta-pesto-cheese. None of my self-discovery prepared me for what I’d learnt at school as I’d suddenly found out there’s way more to cooking than just following a good recipe.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Can you do that prawn dish you cooked the night of the frozen pea fight? That was soo yummy!

    Antoine – Thanks! for dropping by and words of wisdom.

    Alex – your blog rocks! I love chimps. the nice ones. I dislike the angry ones that rob you off your shiny things.

    Ooh Reshmi I love the blog! I love food + I love blogs – therefore I adore this one!

    Oh how I wish I could drop whatever I’m doing and do something I love like cooking! Does that mean you’re going to train to be a chef or cook?

  10. Shmii says:

    Hi Alya! Thanks 🙂 Indeed I am. It’s a year-long course in Paris and I’mmoving this Dec. Massively looking forward to it but really nervous about cutting up and cooking all sorts of meat hehe

    Hi Reshmi,

    I like this a lot – I hope you find some decent prawns in St. Petersburg soon. I reckon one thing you can rely on in Russia would be some good cheap Salmon – is this correct?

    I am going to try cooking some of these tasty suggestions, I’ll let you know how it goes

    Does Sophie’s no show last night equate to a forfeit? Is it 2-0 now in pea wars?

  14. Su-Lin says:
