Dear Food Team
I thought we cooked a splendid dinner tonight.
I will jot down some notes here for our future remembrance, which means, please do cook this again.
Planning a meal is about matching various dishes together. If you serve a meal in a buffet spread, our guests will be piling food on their plates. The sauces are going to mix. Think of how sambal belachan will mess up delicately steamed pork ribs. Or how the pickled salad sauce will affect how a "Chai poh nung." So when you plan an Alpha meal, think of what will actually go on the diner's plate, how it will all come together.
Tonight's meal is almost a perfect combi. Food traditions are seldom wrong.
