Two weeks ago, Luan Ee asked me if I would do a guest post for her. I did not jump at it because she is a chef and I do not know if my simple home cooking dishes will be good enough to be published in her blog. She told me it is fine with her so here I am sharing with you, my humble pull pork recipe. If you are interested to get the recipe, please hop over to Extra Virgin Chef to get it. I am very sure you will spend more time than you intended to at her space because you will find so many mouth watering recipes and food photos there. She shared a lot of cooking tips which are invaluable. That is very generous of her. Also, don't forget to read her amazing story on how she made a big career change in her life.
