Chinese New Year is coming soon, it is a tradition to have rice cakes but such a tradition is not something unique to the Chinese. Koreans and Japanese have their own version of rice cakes, which are very similar to that of the Chinese. I recall joining a friend of my and his family in Japan during the NYE and we all sat around the table and have rice cakes wrapped with seaweed. Yes, in Japan rice cakes are consumed on the New Year day as in 1st of Jan. It was a memorable year, a memorable day and it is quite easy to make it.
It is Christmas time again! Last year I did The Gingery Collection, a pretty collection of Gingerbread man. It was quite fun making them especially the decoration part! This year I want to repeat the fun and try to make a new collection of gingerbread man ready for the festive season! Ho Ho Ho … Merry Christmas! Same as last time, I will not go into details of the ingredients because they are pretty much the same for those you found online. The one I followed <here> http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/gingerbread_man_cookies/ is quite easy and simple to follow. I made a little twist to it because I cannot find all the items listed there.
I have always been a big fan of Whisk since they first opened a while ago especially for the suckling pig as well as their apple tart! Their Sunday brunch was a big hit as well and I covered it a few times actually. I was quite excited to receive this invitation by she.com and Whisk to try out one of their new featured menu by starred Guest Chef Davy Tissot from Les Terrasses de Lyon of Villa Florentine.
It is time for desserts once again! For Halloween, we often talk about costumes and how to dress up as ugly or scary as possible. I think the same concept can apply to food or desserts in this case. It may look scary or disgusting, but it can also be super delicious right? So for this GLAD series, I choice to make something simple, Banana Orange Crepes with a little scary twist perhaps?
