A taste of home in faraway Borneo.
Breadfruit is a fruit in the Artocarpus genus, so it is related to jackfruit and buah tarap but the flesh is very starchy and not at all sweet like its cousins. With origins in Papua New Guinea, it is cultivated and eaten in tropical regions all over the world, from Southeast Asia, to the Indian Ocean, to the Caribbean, to Central America, to the Pacific Islands.
In Malaysia breadfruit is called “buah sukun”; in Hawaii it is called “ulu”. I call it “good eats”
This delicious baked bun is even easier to prepare than our homemade baked char siew bao recipe, and possibly healthier as well.

I was feeling like having some osso bucco, which is braised shanks of veal. But here in Kuching, certain cuts of beef like veal are more difficult to get. So I decided to prepare osso bucco with lamb instead.
It didn’t hurt that I already had some lamb shanks sitting in my freezer that I thought would be perfect to cook this dish with. Even though I’ve said before that I have a go-to lamb shanks recipe, I decided I had to try a new recipe to make this osso bucco.
How would you cook this fish?
