Melbourne’s Top Chef – Baba nyonya chef extraordinaire Alicia Ewe

Baba nyonya chef extraordinaire Alicia Ewe Cunningham serves 5!

We had the luxury and good fortune to be treated to yummy baba nyonya chef extraordinaire Alicia Ewe Cunningham during our last weekend in good old Melbourne. It was a cosy little party with the 6 of us, Alicia and husband Andrew, May Ye, Ronnie and my cousins Terrence and Ellen at Ally and Andrew’s home in Kensington.

The bustle of activity as the delicious meals are being served.

Chef AllyEwe trading her recipe secrets with May?

Delicious Brinjal "Tempra" - tamarind and chilli flavoured brinjal.

Master Chef AllyEwe's signature dish - Kum Heong Lala - yummy

Another traditional nyonya dish - Ayam Pong Teh. Ally's mum would have been proud - she's passed on the secret recipes!

Ally balked abit that I took pics of her dishes without warning – she may have preferred to add more pretty garnishing but the taste was delish. Other dishes not pictures was a yummy assam fish dish and kangkung belacan. I would have enjoyed everything with a few glasses of wine but couldnt of course, due to my condition so I had to make do with Coke.

After dinner pics - Chef Ally, May and mua (looking bloated of course)

Lolling about the balcony on a hot, balmy night. Andrew and Ron.

Fr L-R: Terrence, Me, Ellen, May, Ally - all full and satisfied.

Its nice to have a cook out (even though only 1 person was doing all the cooking) of delicious, authentic dinner, casually between friends. We should do this more often (as opposed to once in 3 years!). I miss Melbourne!
