Hainanese chicken and rice

Hainanese chicken and rice

People sometimes react in funny ways when I tell them that I have a blog about food. It can get even more confusing when I don’t have cuisine that is my specialty. I love new flavors and dishes and I love to experiment in the kitchen. The result is, I would guess, food inspired by … Continue reading

Congee with coriander and sliced steak

Congee with herbs and sliced steak

A friend of mine took me to a, what she called, a proper dim sum meal. I had no input when it came to ordering and when a bowl of congee was placed in front of me I had no idea what this was. It turns out it is a rice porridge, eaten for breakfast or … Continue reading

Dini’s divine chicken teriyaki sushi burger

Sometimes, well if I am honest quite often, I find recipes that I save and think “I have to make this”. I can almost taste the flavours when I read the recipe. This means that I have a lot of saved recpies for that one day. Well, it is time for that one day to arrive … Continue reading

Gong Xi Fa Cai, Happy Chinese New Year 2015!

I try to cook different cuisines and test new things. A celebration, such as the Chinese New Year is always a good time to try new things out. Last year I was more ambitious and cooked up a whole buffet. This year I thought perhaps one dish would be enough. There was a Chinese restaurant … Continue reading

Julianna’s delicious Japanese Curry

Sometimes I can see a recipe and it seems to be calling out to me. I always read through the ingredients and then I know if I have to make it or not. Saying that I have a massive pile of printed and saved as pdf files saved of “must cook” recipes. It usually takes … Continue reading

Vietnamese coconut chicken & sweet potato curry

Sometimes when I want to buy something it comes in a fairly large quantity. This time I had a big bunch of lemon grass. I had bought it for a green Thai curry but I had way more than I needed and I didn’t want to let any of them go to waste. I found … Continue reading
