After making my Peach and Crispy Prosciutto canapés for a party, I learnt a few lessons:
1. Prosciutto is my favourite cured meat for that sweet/salty combo
2. Don't buy so much prosciutto!
I had wayyyyyy too much prosciutto left over because I over estimated how much to buy, and now I've gotta use them up. The answer? This version of Devils on Horseback.

'Tis the season...to get your eat on! And if you're the cook in the house, you're not just in charge of your own belly, you're also in charge of feeding everyone else. So if you're scratching your head of what to make this year, here's a quick roundup of my favourite recipes to feed a party.

The holiday season is drawing near, and so is the season of fantastic produce!!! This year, peaches caught my eye, and I have soft spot for peaches grilled with a touch of butter. And you know what goes well with stone fruit? The salty cured porky goodness called prosciutto.
And how better than to share that with friends than to put it on a canapé for the holidays?

Street food features dominantly in Asian cuisine. If you ask natives for food recommendations, fine dining rarely ranks higher than a particular stall in the corner of a local market or hawker centre. My Thai friends, for example, are more likely to send me to a place with a name I can't pronounce, than David Thompson's Nahm, as nice as the latter might be.
