Creamy Chicken Adobo recipe at home with Nestle All Purpose Cream

The Nestle All Purpose Cream #CreateWithCream event I attended last July 9 has done nothing but inspire me to cook up a storm. While I’m typically in the kitchen baking during my free time, these days I surprise even myself with how I feel twice more motivated to cook. Obviously one of the things I’ve …

Getting a sweet fix with some Homemade Matcha Nama Chocolate

My absolute favourite treat to bring home from Japan is without a doubt Royce’s Nama Chocolates. When we get to the airport, it’s an automatic impulse for me to grab a box or two of Champagne and Matcha-flavoured Nama Chocolates. I don’t even have to think about it, especially since the exact same Royce chocolates …

New favourite Japanese snacks, December 2015 edition [Vol. 2]

By now I think most people have heard about the most recent earthquakes that have created such destruction in Japan and Ecuador. This post is my way of showing solidarity during these difficult times. My prayers go out to all those who have been affected by the earthquake, both in Japan and Ecuador. I’ve only …

My favourite Sesame Soba topped with sweet-spicy salmon

When it comes to food, there are few things I love more than Asian noodles. It doesn’t matter which country in Asia it’s from or whether there’s soup or not– if it’s a noodle dish I’ll eat it. (For pasta I’m a little pickier since I don’t generally eat white sauce, but I also adore …

Let’s cook Kimchi Fried Rice with the help of Petron Gasul!

As a home cook and baker, one of my major concerns has always been safety in the kitchen especially when it comes to my stove and oven. You know how sometimes you’re switching your oven off like it’s second nature without really thinking about it, and then you leave the house, are in your car …

A quick Bibimbap recipe to curb sudden cravings

I am a huge fan of Korean dramas. I think at the moment, South Korea produces the best dramas in Asia, and somehow, despite the fact that some of the core themes and elements get recycled from drama to drama, the actors can covey them differently and the writers find a way to put a …

Two Banchan dishes 반찬 using one easy recipe

I’m not entirely new to the “Korean wave” or whatever you want to call it, however I feel like this year I gained a new appreciation for all things Korean. I’ll be talking a bit more about it on my next post but needless to say, a lot of that appreciation applies to food. I …

The Buchi (麻糰): A Chinese restaurant favourite with many names

After writing about a Chinese restaurant in my previous post, I got in the mood to talking about a dessert that’s often served in local Chinese restaurants after a heavy multi-course meal. No, we’re not talking about Mango Sago, though that’s pretty much a staple too. I’m actually talking about the Buchi, or the Fried …
