In The Kitchen

I can’t believe just how fast time has gone by. It’s been one month since I last posted and it’s only 3 months left until our wedding! Ahh! In the beginning I really only wanted a simple, no fuss reception but as planning started to unfold, it became more and more complicated. The budget has […]…
There’s one smell that I absolutely cannot resist and that’s freshly toasted nuts. That aromatic earthy smell gets me salivating and I just want to eat whole mouthfuls of whatever nut it is. That’s why I love buying raw nuts, so that I can toast the nuts myself. Most people have obviously heard of peanut […]…
I love eating pears as much as I like eating many other fruits. I like them skin on in all its raw glory, or skin off and poached in many ways. However, even though I love my pears, we don’t actually eat it all that often. Strange isn’t it? Perhaps it’s because I leave it […]…
I’m really not good with Monday mornings. The only thing I can think about when lying in my comfy and warm bed is how not to go to work. With our shop, it’s quite flexible in the sense that…I can make Yuye go to work if I tried hard enough, but today I got out […]…
After my last attempt at making Yuye drink a smoothie containing oatmeal, I made a second attempt using raspberries.

It almost reminds me of summer… It’s been getting […]…
I’ve always loved the colour of the persimmon. It’s golden orange and its rustic warm feel signals that Autumn is among us. The yellowing of leaves and the arrival of Autumn veggies and fruits are what I love about Autumn. The only thing that inevitably comes with it is the cold temperatures and the unbearable […]…
I’ve always loved the classic BLT (that’s bacon, lettuce and tomato) sandwiches, even if they can be a little boring. There’s something special about that combination of slightly fatty but so delicious bacon and the freshness of the lettuce and tomato that makes this a favourite for many people. But of course, doesn’t matter how […]…
Even if you’ve never had Japanese food in your life, you’d still probably have heard of the term ‘teriyaki’. The dish teriyaki chicken is one of the most common dishes served at Japanese restaurants big and small around the world, that is other than Japan. In more recent years though due to its world-wide popularity, […]…
Even though I’m not religious, I still like to say that coconuts are one of God’s best food creations. A little addition of coconut milk to a dish can make it so smooth and fragrant, that applies to both savoury and sweet dishes. You can eat and drink it too and of course don’t forget […]…
