GAP-FF accreditation of Singapore Fish Farms: Kühlbarra Barramundi
In the last year however, I got wind of a local fish farm which was producing Australian Barramundi (That is what the Aussies call them) in the Southern waters off Singapore.

Chinese Style Roast Chicken is one of my all time favourite dishes. But you probably realize that this "roast" chicken is a misnomer because the way they cook the chicken is to deep fry the whole bird in a big vat of oil! Unlike the Western style roast chicken which is traditionally a dish served at home for Sunday lunches , not many Chinese families would actually cook "Roast" Chicken at home. Roasting a whole bird in the oven is something very practical for the modern kitchen as most homes would have an oven. However, not many kitchens are equipped to deep fry a whole bird, so the Chinese Roast Chicken is something you usually eat outside.
