Last week Mr. POH and I celebrated Chinese week where I cooked nothing but food with an Asian-flair but this week we’re going European.
This week, we’re zooming over to Italia, where I’ll be rustling up some tasty (I hope!) Italian dishes.
Included on the menu this week is: Minestrone, Zuppa Toscana, Lasanga and a curious Spaghetti Cake.
I’ll be featuring at least two Italian-themed posts on the blog – movies, culture, recipes? We’ll see!

In a bid to try something a bit different here in the Spill the Beans household, I’m cooking dishes with a Chinese-flair.
So what’s in store for this week? Well we’re kicking off tonight with a Beef Noodle Soup, using egg noodles and beef that’s marinated in soy sauce and garlic.
Tomorrow we’ll switch out the beef for pork, with a sweet and sour dish on the cards. Then on Tuesday – as a celebration of buying a Playstation 4 – we’ll have special fried rice with chicken and prawns.
Wednesday we’re going to go back to beef for some delicious chow mein and then on Thursday I’ll be rustling up some Lemon Chicken.
To finish the working week, we’re going to be a bit bold and indulge in some tasty spareribs and then finally on Saturday we’ll have Lamb Meatballs.
We’re also going to be looking at a few Chinese movies that have food at the core of their story including Ang Lee’s Eat Drink Man Woman, The Chinese Feast and the BBC Four documentary The Biggest Chinese Restaurant in the World.
Next week we’re going to change it up with Italian food! So if you have any suggestions on what we should do – feel free to leave a comment below. Zàijiàn!
