Sweet, salty, spicy – Korean braised potatoes

While I was born in South Korea, my family immigrated to Australia when I was just 4 years old, therefore I never really had a chance to spend much time with my extended family – especially my mother’s parents, whom I’ve always loved and yearned for more time with. We did go back to Korea […]

Roasted sweet potato & tomato salad

I’m sorry for the long absence folks, but after feeling utterly burnt out for awhile with work and family stuff, I decided to take the weekend off and go to one of Victoria’s most beautiful destinations, a little coastal town called Apollo Bay However, even that didn’t seem like a total holiday as I was […]

Simple Asian Sides

A Taste of Yellow

When I saw all the posts popping up for the ‘A Taste of Yellow” event, all sorts of thoughts entered my head as I began planning a sweet creation. Slowly, an image formed in my mind…a striped joconde, encasing layers of honeyed jelly and a banana bavarian cream, and the Livestrong wristband proudly encasing my […]

The most magnificent noodle salad of all

A long time promised – and finally here it is! Our recipe for japchae, a magnificently multi-coloured noodle salad dish that is a must-have on any celebratory table.
