Bubble tea

August 28, 2014

I still haven’t gotten back into the swing of my more regular blogging, so this will just be a short post. Not really a recipe, but consider it as vague  directions for how to make your own pearl milk tea at home. Or bubble tea, pearl tea, boba tea, whatever you call it. I’m of […]

Black sesame and green tea panna cotta

May 15, 2014

2

The genesis of this black sesame and green tea panna cotta came about through a merging of 2 things; my idea of doing an ‘Asian’ flavoured panna cotta and my desire to make a visually dramatic 2 tone dessert. To keep with the Asian flavours, I’ve used soy milk instead of regular milk and I […]

Warming ginger tea

April 20, 2014

Hope you’re getting some r&r this Easter break. I really love this type of weather, crisp and delightfully chilly. Perfect autumn weather for snuggling up at home with a good book or dvd set. And to keep me toasty warm, I’ve been sipping on some spicy ginger tea. I’m pretty sure ginger tea is widely […]

Fellow Melbournians how are you coping in this heat wave? 35°C yesterday, a top of 44.5°C today and still in the 40’s until the cool change hits on Friday night. Eeekkk! This girl does not handle the hot very well so strategies need to be in place to prepare me for the worst. When one […]

Green tea and chocolate is a beautiful marriage of bitter and sweet. My first encounter with this combination was almost a decade ago in Hong Kong when a friend and I found and fell in love with Meiji’s matcha green tea “MeltyKiss”. MeltyKiss is Meiji’s line of chocolate truffles. These truffles are delectable; a velvety […]

Chazuke with teriyaki salmon recipe

Isn’t it funny how some dishes we eat have a bigger effect on us than others? For whatever reason, this relatively simple and homely dish of chazuke (steamed rice in green tea) with salmon flakes has stuck in my mind. I first tried this dish years ago at the much loved Japanese restaurant, Yu-U (137 […]

Pomegranate and floral green tea recipe

My propensity to mix drinks started long before I learnt how to mix a vodka cranberry. One of the more legendary concoctions my brother and I came up with in our childhood involved 2 different flavoured cordials, 3 types of milks (regular, soy and condensed), jam, salt and lemonade. Sounds horrific to me now, but […]

China: A taste of Hangzhou

Oh what a glorious city Hangzhou is. Renowned for its history, natural beauty, Dragon Well tea and delicious cuisine, this was a must visit city for me. The food did not disappoint, no doubt the best city (at least amongst the ones I managed to visit on this voyage) for eating. My food highlights from […]
