We were invited to Perche No (Italian for ‘why not’) by Eric and Kaylea from Singapore! They work for the Prima Taste company – which makes some of the best instant noodles I’ve tried. We got to try some amazing dishes prepared by Chef David – he came and introduced them to us and talked about the ingredients. Was really great – like having a private special dinner. Great company and great food! I highly recommend checking out Perche No next time you’re in Seattle.

Chef David is originally from Malaysia and enjoys creating Italian dishes. Reminds me of an artist who lived near where I grew up – Paul Luvera – an Italian who carved totem poles.

Durian fried rice! So good – had a great durian flavor and cili padi through out. Was great – Chef David told us about how people who weren’t keen on the scent of Durian would call the fire department as they thought there was a gas leak!

Sole with capers over marinated eggplant and tomato. My mom used to cook sole with capers for my dad years and years ago – reminded me of that.

A durian extract infused aperitif! Chef David had a little bottle of durian extract – strong stuff!

White truffle gelato with carnation flower. White truffle has such a earthy, musty tone to them and made me feel like I was in my parent’s garage on a cloudy was when I was a kid looking at a moth stuck in a spider’s web. Delicious!

Durian filled canneloni – Kit got to really try durian tonight – was good! She liked it! Wonder if I can talk her into us bringing one home from the Asian grocery…

Kaylea, Eric and Chef David right before we left. What a great night – was great to hang out with Eric and Kaylea – very nice folks! Never tried all these Italian things before – was like going to school with a Chef, and we had Chef David to ourselves pretty much for 4 hours (yep – the meal literally took 4 hours).. The dishes were served with almost an exact time between each one, kind of like tracks on an album. Special thanks to Aunt Cindy, without whom we would never have been able to attend – she babysat Miles!
