GINNY GRANT STARTS THE DAY WITH THE FLA VOURS OF ASIA.
Ginny Grant looks to the flavours of Asia for breakfast inspiration
DEPENDING ON THE DAY, breakfast in my household differs widely. On weekdays, it’s often about the ritual rush, gulping down a tea or coffee or a stand-up breakfast on the run – a smoothie, maybe some muesli or toast. Weekends are a little different, with a more leisurely start. I’ve more of a savoury bent, and the snacks from street-side stalls in Asia have always appealed to me. My travel in Asia hasn’t been extensive and there are many places on my to-do list, as well as spots I’d like to revisit. It’s the great hawker stalls in Singapore and the food of Penang that have drawn me in in the past – I like a bit of heat to my food and the full flavours on offer in these cuisines. The following recipes aren’t traditional by any stretch, but are some favourite flavour combinations.
