Chocolate Pretzel and Raspberry Brownies

For those that follow me on twitter (@food_religion) would know that I am a human with constant cravings. Generally it consists of yum cha, peking duck, steak, CHIPS, mash, hot pot, a cup of refreshing watermelon juice, dumprings, hot and sour soup and of course one of my all favourites, tom yum soup. 

Chocolate Pretzel and Raspberry Brownies - before going into the oven
Anyhow one day I woke up and had the biggest cravings for chocolate pretzels and an oozing slice of a choc fudge brownie. I thank my fellow food bloggers and my friends who haven't stopped making them or talking about them for the past few week!

The Rice Den, Chatswood

Yes, they are nem nuong san choy bows - your eyes not playing a trick on you. Nem nuongs aren't something I have often but each time I see it, read it or smell it, I must have it. One of the reasons why I don't have nem nuongs often because of its high fat content but because of the way it served, , it surprisingly tasted refreshing and 'healthy'. Nem Nuong and healthy? That's a juxtaposition right there!

Chefs Gallery, Sydney

A thank you to Yardley Kyling from Chefs Gallery and Thang Ngo from Noodlies for organising and inviting me to the launch of the Chefs Gallery new winter menu. I felt like I had collapsed and went to dumpling heaven and above me were several cute little angel piggies floating around awaiting to be eaten. Thou shall not squeal no more my oh so dear delicious piggies! buahahaha
