My Food

Below is one of the dish I’ll teach in the Hot and Spicy Noodle I cooking class.

Seafood Lasak – Seafood Noodle Soup with Satay Sauce

Sushi Meal

Sushi Restaurants in Japan often offer set lunch and set dinner courses for their customers. Sushi meals usually include a variety of sushi together with a soup, appetizer and other dishes. The other dishes may be combination of sasimi (raw seafood), a steamed dish (e.g. chawanmusi), a grilled dish (e.g. yakitori) and a deep-fried dish (e.g. ebi tempura).

I’ll teach my version of sushi meal in one of the cooking classes in the coming spring season.

The following pictures are some examples of sushi meals offered in restaurants in Japan.

Chocolate for Better Health

A daily treat of dark chocolate for only two weeks may change metabolism in healthy, free-living people, says a new study from Nestlé scientists.

Using the metabonomics technique, scientists from the Nestlé Research Center (NRC), BASF and Berlin-based Metanomics GmbH report that daily consumption of 40 grams of dark chocolate significantly changed a person’s metabolism, as well as changing the metabolism of the gut microflora.
