Quick reminder for all Singapore-based readers with OCBC credit cards! If you haven’t entered this contest to win a pair of seats at a table I’m hosting on 12 October, during Justin Quek’s upcoming promotion, at Snappers restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton, you have just 2 days left. The contest ends this coming Friday, 29 September. Three couples will win a pair of tickets to this 8-course extravanga cooked by arguably Singapore’s best French chef. The menu includes Smoked Cobia Parfait with ‘Avruga’ Caviar; Seared Romaine Lettuce and King Oyster Mushroom with Autumn Dressing; Duo cooking of Maine Lobster with Ceps Mushrooms; Tagliatelle with Salted Natural Pork and Fresh Autumn Truffles; Demi-Tasse of Herbal Duck Consommé and Foie Gras Dumpling; Grilled Smoked Cote de Beouf with Autumn Vegetables, Bordeaux Sauce, or Pan-Roasted Ocean Fish Fillet with Lobster Essence; Avant Dessert; Duo of Chefs’ Dessert; and freshly brewed coffee, decaffeinated coffee, a selection of teas, and petit fours.

In addition, each winning couple gets an autographed copy of Justin’s new cookbook, which launches 13 October 2006. The book will retail for S$69 and the dinner is usually S$150+++ a person, so getting a couple free seats and the book seems a pretty good deal to me. What are you waiting for?

HOW TO ENTER: Email me a 100-200 word description of your own chubby hubby or sexy spouse. You can tell me anything you want about them; it can be why you love him or her; it can be a funny story; it can be about how much he or she loves to eat. The wittiest, most sincere and most well-written 3 entries will win. Email me at aun@chubbyhubby.net. Email me by 29 September 2006. I will announce the winners on 2 October 2006. Please be sure to include your full name, IC number (or passport number) and contact phone number. You must be an OCBC cardmember to enter.

I’m here and would love to participate. But I don’t have an OCBC card nor another half to write about. Maybe next time, have fun.


Brenda: Quick, apply for a card. There will be many more cool contests and promos coming up over the next few months. 🙂

Hi CH, we’ve got a booking for JQ’s dinner on Oct 12 already and are totally looking forward to it! Also had a few burning ‘ingredient procurement’ questions for you, if that’s ok? (Sorry to hijack the thread topic.) Where in Singapore can I find:

1. Lemon oil? I’ve seen it in a few of Tetsuya’s and Thomas Keller’s recipes and totally have not figured out where to get it here. Same goes for orange oil.

2. Spicy cucumber oil? This was one of your tuna tartare ingredients.

3. Mineral oil? For seasoning chopping/cutting boards.

Any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated (I’m a newbie to all this cooking/sourcing stuff) – thanks!!
