Spring Lamb Shank Rendang Curry…and clean up!

It’s been an age since my last post. My blog has been neglected throughout winter not dissimilar to my weed-riddled garden.

Retro Chinese Potato ‘Birds Nest’ Baskets

As a child I was always fascinated by Potato “Birds Nest” Baskets that you could order at the local Chinese restaurant to serve your stir-fry in. It was my favourite thing to order growing up as it just seemed magical that you could actually eat the basket! What makes these baskets so tasty is clearly […]

Raw Zucchini ‘Noodles’ & Thai Coriander Pesto

Homemade at Dani’s: Crispy Rice Paper Rolls

I wish inventors would hurry up and create push-button instant travel because it would mean that I would be able to have lunch in Hanoi everyday. Instead I have to settle for recreating magical Vietnamese flavours at home, which isn’t a bad thing because it’s my favourite cuisine to cook and eat. It’s pretty hard […]

Homemade at Dani’s: Cake Pop Caterpillar

The third episode of Homemade at Dani’s is inspired by one of my all-time favourite childhood books ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ written by Eric Carle. In some ways I can see myself in this little caterpillar as I often eat way too much for my own good and then feel all sorry for myself. I’m […]

To be able to travel abroad, to explore new cultures and to taste different cuisines is one of the most pleasurable and rewarding things in life. After all, what is the point of working so hard if you can’t spoil yourself once in a while?! If you’re like me and looking forward to your next […]
