Synopsis

Ever wonder if you can take a peek in the fridge of a celebrated chef? What secrets they hide, what they cook for their loved ones when they are at home?

Fridge and comfort is a book that explores the inner sanctum of some of the most celebrated chefs in and around Malaysia and Singapore.

We will take an extremely candid view on what they buy and store in something seemingly mundane, their fridge. It’s the key into the very core of chefs' personalities and shows what they eat and cook when freed from their chosen profession.

There's nothing better than finding great chefs' stories, recipes from different regions/around the world.

This will be the first of many chapters of chef around the world.

Here are some examples of recipes

Daniel's recipe:
Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball

500gram Broken grain rice
vegetable oil
Chicken stock
1 old ginger
4 garlic cloves
1 shallots, roughly sliced
2-3 pandan leaves

- Pan fry shallots until lightly brown with vegetable oil on a pot.
- Add it with smash garlic and smashed ginger.
- Once you smell the ginger aroma, add the broken rice and lightly fry to coat it with the oil
- Add it to the rice into the rice cooker and top it with chicken stock until a centimeter above the toil.
- Throw in the pandan leaves in a bunch. You want to bruise the leaves a bit.
- Once rice is cook, with an ice cream scoop, shape the rice in to ping pong size balls. Keep the scoop wet to prevent rice from sticking

Samantha's recipe:
Pulut Tekan

500g Glutinous rice
30 Butterfly pea flower (bunga telang)
200ml Water
250ml Coconut milk
1 tsp salt
5 Pandan leaves
Banana leaves

Method
- In a sauce pan, boil butterfly pea flowers and 200ml water. Simmer for a few minutes. When cool down, strain to extract the blue colouring.
- Wash glutinous rice. Soak 1/3 glutinous rice with the blue colouring extract. Soak remaining 2/3 of rice with water. Soak for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- The next day, drain both glutinous rice.
- Line the steaming tray with banana leaf.
- Mix coconut milk with salt. Pour half portion of coconut milk over the blue and white glutinous rice and mix well. Add in the pandan leaves. Steam over high heat for 20 minutes.
- Discard pandan leaves and then fluff the rice with a pair of chopsticks.
- Add the balance of coconut milk, mix well. Return to steamer and steam for another 20 minutes.
- Line 7x7 inch square baking pan with banana leaf and lightly grease with oil. Transfer the cooked glutinous rice to the baking pan, alternating the blue portion with white. Level the surface and press down the rice with a banana leaf and place a heavy object to ensure the rice is well pressed.
- Cool in the fridge for few hours.
- When cooled, unmould and cut into pieces to serve with kaya.
