From street-food to fine dining, traditional Italian to Asian-Fusion, being well-versed in global cuisine is the first step to culinary mastery.
Red, Green, or White Pasta Sauce — What’s the Difference?
Red, green, and white — they’re the colours of the Italian flag and they’re also the three colours of the most common (and delicious) pasta sauces.
It shouldn't have been so suspicious in retrospect, But the food I brought to school always had someone saying 'what the heck?'
It’s always a mystery. Always something to ponder. Boom! I’ve saved the date. July 23, 2021. Okay, we celebrating Leo Season. Shhh, I don’t know if it’s still Cancer Season.

Have you ever heard of UFO tarts?
These past few days, I have been craving for UFO tarts. You heard me correctly! UFO tarts. Lots of people wanted to know what a UFO tart was. It's a tart that's meringue-based and filled with egg custard. My family used to have these pretty frequently back home in Sandakan, a small city in East Malaysia. Traditionally, East Malaysia was known as Borneo, the land below the wind. It brought back sweet memories of the UFO tarts my grandmother always gave me when I did something right. All the way through my teenage years, these were regarded as a sign of great reward.
Kick Ash Basket
I have been using the Kick Ash Basket products since 2015 when I first met its creator, Chad Romzek, at Eggtoberfest. During this event held in Stone Mountain, GA, I was first introduced to the basket and its benefits. This was the first generation basket and we were all blown away by the added airflow that it provided in our Big Green Eggs! Chad had provided a few so we immediately added the baskets to every egg we could. One of our dishes involved frying so you can imagine how much this helped. As the spectators came by our tents they would notice the Kick Ash Basket (KAB) and wonder what it was for and how it worked. Most kamado owners only knew one thing. You have a cast iron grate full of holes in the bottom and you stir your ash and charcoal with a metal rod until hopefully most of the ash makes it through the tiny holes. Minds were stretched that day for sure. Chad sold out of every KAB that day and we all made sure we had ours on the way! The KAB was the first of its kind to market and has been copied by other companies. It still remains to be the best and most efficient basket out there.
Let Me Have My Cake
This morning, I went to work as usual. It has been almost six months when we're allowed to go back to the office again. In the past, I always complained about going to work due to the commuting time, trains packed with rowdy school kids, and cold icy winds during the winter months. But that was the past. Since the onset of Covid and nationwide lockdowns, I always look forward to going back to the office again. There're so many cafes and shops in Martin Place. Seeing people coming and going, has brought so much joy to my heart unknowingly.
Something About Black Forest
Chocolate, the sweetness and luxury to the tongue and the blessing of life for every mouth on planet earth, so mouth devouring for the children especially yet unfortunate to those who dislike or allergic to it. Still chocolate is what it is no matter the different or adjoined flavours of brands and other foods of desserts and snacks.
When it comes to strange foods it all depends on how people look at them, where they live, and what they can afford. We all know food is expensive but to live we have to eat. There are places in the world that do not have supermarkets or are far from where they live. Many people are living in poverty and struggling to feed their families and particularly their children. Among the strangest food that is eaten is blood pudding or blood sausage as it is known in Latvia. I was born in the US but my parents came from Latvia. I grew up in two cultures and learned to eat a lot of food I would otherwise not have even known about.

Why do we always use the word "meal" when evaluating the delicious food?
I don’t know when, many people have developed the habit of watching dramas while eating, and the saying "plays with rice" also comes from this.
My Lockdown degustation menu
I haven't left my house for almost 3 weeks. There is no boundary between home and work these days. Weekdays and weekends are just the same. I am praying every day that my foodie adventure can continue after all the lockdown is over. Dreaming and dreaming, counting the days, watching the TV to see any signs of the government lifting lockdown restrictions. Then one day, I have this idea of creating my own degustation menu, instead of browsing the menu of my favourite restaurants and cafes! Why not? If they can do it, I can do it too! Except that I am an amateur and they are the professionals! The only customers at home will be my parents and myself. I guess mum will not mind me being the Queen of her kitchen for one night.
