My extensive YouTube grazing often leads me back to the excellent Food Ranger. Trevor James has got it sorted. Anyone who’s made a career out of slurping down noodles has cracked it, no?
Stumbling through the alleys and street markets of China, you can almost smell the wok hai, breathe in the spices, taste the msg. It’s a place I’ve never been but a world I know. My parallel universe me still lives in that long demolished shabby Seoul suburb. The me who didn’t come to England, who grew up in the Far East, who’s bored of sucking up street noodles every day and hankering for an exotic Cornish pasty or something.
A sense of connection and disconnection – First World, first generation immigrant problems.
Anyway the Food Ranger has inspired me to eat this. The meeting of two fave friends: Pizza, this is Dumplings. Dumplings, Pizza. House on fire ensues…
Ingredients: pizza dough, meatballs, chicken broth, tomatoes, chilli oil, pecorino
