Welcome to Silk Club's first edition of our on-going Cookbook project! From our favorite childhood dishes to homemade recipes, we hope to share our kitchen with you-- one dish at a time. Keep an eye out for future editions, and please feel free to send us your own recipes.
Congee: A pan-Asian favorite, this dish is a testament to the power of simplicity. Easy to make, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy this versatile dish when you want comfort without breaking the bank.
Pinakbet: The next time you find yourself wandering aimlessly through the aisles of your local 99 Ranch or any other classic Asian market, make sure to pick up these ingredients. This Filipino dish is sure to hit that savory craving you’re having!
Coconut Sticky Rice: This dish combines two essentials in Thai cuisine: rice and mangoes. Use glutinous rice for optimal texture. Serve and eat immediately-- that means no leftovers! But we don’t think that should be a problem once you take your first bite.
Mapo Tofu: Not for the faint of heart. This mouth-numbing dish will leave you wanting more.
Scallion Pancake: Meant for sharing, but we won't blame you if it's made all for yourself. Leave on pan for another minute to make it extra crispy.
