Dried prawn roe is considered a delicacy among the Cantonese living in Guangzhou, Macau and Hong Kong. Exclusively sourced for Handpicked, is this exquisite prawn roe, harvested from prawns caught in the estuaries, where seawater and fresh river water meets. The seafood living in this area is highly prized, for they are always the fattest and their flavours more intense.

What we love to do in our home is, make a larger batch and freeze for times when our hunger pangs strike suddenly, unplanned visits by friends or a quick easy snack when having a drink.

Saturday night dinner with our newly available Japanese #Ramen. All it needs is a minute of cooking in boiling water, then it's ready to be served in the broth of choice and your favourite toppings.
.
Slightly chewy with a lovely bite, each strand stayed firm till the very last delicious bite. We had ours with #homemade sous vided char siew and onsen egg as well as bamboo shoots and a healthy sprinkle of spring onions. Broth was made from dashi stock and the cooking juices from the char siew, seasoned with a touch of miso. #oiishi

Sharing this gorgeous shot of our Aged Tangerine Peel. Thank you, @kennyleong. We are loving the personal link you have to the place of origins of these peels. We hope you thoroughly enjoy them!

大紅柑 tangerine peel, probably the only thing my ancestral home of Xinhui is famous for. Aged for 30 years, this tiny batch of chenpi has a nuanced character but is very intoxicating, invigorating, and restorative!

This morning's sustenance before starting our deliveries. #Homemade honey lemon with Sweet Basil Seeds.
.
Do you remember these tiny, popping delights which we lovingly called "frogs eggs" when we were young?
.
On a recent trip to #Alishan, Taiwan, we specially sourced for a batch of Sweet Basil Seeds and handcarried them back just for you. These seeds only need to be hydrated in warm water for 5 minutes, to allow them to plump up and the gel-like coating to form. They can then be added to your cold beverages, shakes, breakfast cereal and desserts. Sweet Basil Seeds are known to help with digestion and packed with fiber.

There's something simply comforting when eating a bowl of #noodles. Slightly chewy with a firm bite is how we like ours. All it needs is a simple tossing sauce made from soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, favourite chilli paste and a dash of pepper. How do you like yours?

A story by @karen.nah, Co-founder of Handpicked.
.
This afternoon I did a personal delivery of noodles to a special uncle I met last week. It all started when his daughter placed her first order of wanton noodles with us.
.
When I first met uncle at the door last week, he jumped up from his chair and told me that he used to sell wanton noodles during his younger days. He has retired for several years now, but has been searching for good quality noodles of late. Uncle then proceeded to share with me everything about wanton noodles and his cooking days. He proudly proclaimed he served wanton noodles with the gu zhao wei (old school, traditional taste). My eyes lit up with his words, and threw a flurry of questions at him. I wanted to find out all about his wanton noodles, how did he prepared it, and what did I have to do to achieve that gu zhao wei.
.
Today, uncle wanted to cook wanton noodles for his extended family. Thus his daughter had placed an urgent delivery. When I reached his door, as usual he was quick to greet me. And as I passed him his new order, he handled me a small bag in return. OMGosh, uncle had prepared a portion of his wanton noodles for me. He told me he wanted me to try his cooking. Not only was I extremely touched, he had just turned my less than perfect day to a GREAT one!
.
Over our chat on food, uncle and I have started a friendship. His kind gesture reassured us that we are doing the right thing, in working hard to bring the best ingredients to your kitchen table. Thank you, uncle, from all of us at Handpicked.

Today's #easydinner of #wantons were done in a matter of minutes. Simply toss the frozen wantons into a pot of boiling water. Serve in a simple broth or toss in a Sichuan mala sauce. Wantons were wrapped over the weekend and frozen for moments like today. 💞😋

Got our hands on another batch of umami #homemade Oyster Sauce from Chef @david_yip.
.
Each batch of Oyster Sauce is painstakingly produced by Chef Yip. He starts off by picking the freshest #oysters and houses them in a filteration tank for 7 days to ensure all sand and impurities are purged away.
.
After shuckering the oysters, the meat is then blended and slow-cooked at a low temperature for 24 hours together with specially selected oils, herbs and spices. The flavours of this Oyster Sauce is rich and intense, quite unlike anything you've tried. Absolutely delighted to work with Chef Yip on this amazing product!
.
Some may also be happy to know it's gluten-free!
.
Order your bottle of Oyster Sauce at Handpicked with complimentary delivery with $50 purchase.

Version 2 of @ranjidavid's La Mian "ko-song".
.
No need for any accompaniment ingredients; keeping it simple to allow the noodles' texture, springy bite and slight natural sweetness from the seaweed extract (used in making the noodles) shine through. Sometimes, less is definitely more! #simplepleasures #lessismore

Serve up La Mian with your next #steamboat party. Simply cook #lamian in boiling water for 40 seconds, remove and toss with a couple dashes of sesame oil.
.
To serve, top with fried shallots, spring onions, cut red chillies for some kick, and a touch of light soy sauce. Alternatively, serve with broth from the steamboat, and taste the "sweetness" from all the ingredients cooked in it. #大家吃!

Wrapped a huge batch of #Shanghainese #wantons last night while watching telly.
.
These will sit well in the freezer, and last us for the next couple of weeks as we burn the midnight oil to bring you a new look and new products for our webshop.
.
Just in case you're wondering how to freeze your wantons:
1) Sprinkle some plain flour onto a tray.
2) Place wrapped wantons onto the tray, taking care not to touch each other.
3) Pop the tray of wantons into the freezer for 30 minutes.
4) When frozen, remove the wantons from the tray and store them in a large zip lock bag.
5) Whenever hunger strikes, simply bring a pot of water to the boil. Drop some of the frozen wantons (no need to thaw) into the boiling water, stirring ever so often. These babies are ready to eat when they float to the surface of the boiling water.
.
Easy peasy, fuss-free meal in 5 minutes. 😋

REPOST:
Today's lunch of cold Shanghainese Noodles is brought to you by the letters C and H ... 😍 Big thanks from the bottom of my heart (and the fullness of my stomach!) to the wonderful @cheryllovesbess and Handpicked Noodles @handpicked.sg. I've ogled these handmade La Mian since January this year, when they launched so you can only imagine how very happy to finally meet -or should that be eat? 😂- them 😁 They're not only as beautifully textured as I'd anticipated with a good, firm bite, but so very very good to work with. -
Oh! And thanks to Aniza for the exceptional Bawang Goreng as the perfect icing on the cake. Or topping on the noodles. You know what I mean 😉
