How do I use the different types of coconut? When buying coconuts fresh, there are two types available. Brown coconuts are mature coco- nuts with a dark, husky exterior and firm flesh. Drinking coconuts are young coconuts with a white exterior, carved, cone-shaped top and con- tain a sweet juice and soft, jelly- like flesh. Dried coconut flesh is available in different forms - desiccated, shredded or flaked. Coconut cream and milk is made from grated coconut soaked in boiling water, which is then squeezed and strained. The thick, first extraction pro- duces coconut cream, followed by the thinner coconut milk. Kim Coverdale is food editor at Super Food Ideas.

TOP NOSH Alive www.innerwestweekly.com.au Here you can play with your food Chef Austin Chwa fires up the hotplate. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP210646 NAME: Fuji Teppanyaki. WHERE: 246 Burwood Rd, Burwood. Phone 9745 3188 OPEN: Lunch Tue-Sun 11.30am-3pm, Dinner daily 5.30pm-10.30pm PROFILE: Fiona Brady UNTIL last week, I was a teppanayki virgin. But after a visit to Fuji Teppanyaki on Burwood Rd, I'm now a convert. If like me, you've never been to a teppanayki restaurant, I can reveal that the food is only part of the experience. Sitting down at one of the communal tables, I notice a sign on the wall asking patrons to inform the chef if they don't want to be part of the throwing games. Throwing games? But there's no sign of any such shenanigans as I'm served a salad, the first dish on all five of Fuji Teppanyaki's set menus (which range in price from $29.50 per person to $69.50). It's dressed in the most delicious mayonnaise I've tasted in ages. Apparently many patrons ask for the recipe, but restaurant staff say it's top secret. It's followed by little dishes of sashimi-grade salmon and kingfish with a side dish of wasabi and ginger. Next it's tempura, battered vegetables and prawns with a homemade dipping sauce. Then it's on with the show. The chef steps up to one of the iron griddles nestled between each set of tables and gets to work, expertly de- veining prawns and slicing beef with plenty of theatrical flourishes and spinning utensils. ''I make a fire,'' he says lighting a match so that flames rise dramatically in the air. The food is great -- the prawns are simply cooked in lemon juice, soy and salt and pepper. The teriyaki beef is, as requested, medium rare and perfectly sweet and juicy. Although the show is only getting started, its a weekday and we reluctantly have to rush back to the office. But I'll be back. I want to see those games. 3 SHOWSONLY! 26-28 NOVEMBER Ballet's most romantic love story comes to Sydney for the first time RIVERSIDE THEATRES, PARRAMATTA 8839 3399 / RIVERSIDEPARRAMATTA.COM.AU WEST AUSTRALIAN BALLET Own the moment Buy pictures from this newspaper www.newsphotos.com.au Bars, Cafes Restaurants Guide
