The Unordinary Cauliflower

As one very popular, nutrient-rich vegetables, cauliflower can be thought as somewhat lacking in taste. It’s easy to spice up cauliflower with some simple spices, so don’t be misguided: Cauliflower can actually be very versatile to cook with. Here is one of our favourite recipes, cauliflower spiced with cumin, it’s quite famous within cooking circles and today we’d like to share it with you. It makes an excellent side to any entree, and can also be eaten all on it’s own. The cauliflower can actually be roasted whole, which also looks really impressive!

COVID-19 effects are finally dissipating as most of the world is in a recovery mode and lockdowns in producing nations have all begun to end. While pricing has gone up dramatically for a few ingredients, in general pricing is starting to come down for Indian spices as well as dry fruits and nuts from the US.  Extremely poor harvesting during spring crop has made Star Anise's autumn crop very expensive and all old batch (low priced) goods are quickly getting bought up. Unfortunately due to Covid-19, this problem was unavoidable as most of China was in lockdown during most of the key harvest...

Recipe: Doner Kebab

My husband and I text each other during the day using Wechat. Around 3 or 4pm, I often ask him, “What did you have for lunch?” This is to avoid making the same kind of dish for dinner. One day, he replied saying “Kebab.” Aww, kebab. I haven’t had that for awhile. Then I thought to myself, “Can’t I make that at home?” So I searched for a recipe which doesn’t use an oven (We didn’t have an oven until last summer).  Then I found a doner kebab recipe shared by a Japanese woman living in Bursa, Turkey. This came...

Allspice – spice blend or a spice on its own?

allspice knowledge base

Upon hearing the name, most people imagine that Allspice is a blend of spices. Actually Allspice is the dry fruit of the Allspice tree Pimento Dioica. Allspice is one of the few New World spices; it’s an evergreen tree native to Central America and Great Antilles. The fruit is picked while unripe and then dried in the sun. Allspice has a complex flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, but much spicier than if you were to mix the three spices together. Christopher Colombo has found this spice on his quest for spices (black pepper in particular) in America. Misled by the appearance of...
