Miso Salmon Crab Cakes with Spicy Mayo


We had some salmon leftover in the freezer from a few weeks ago that we didn’t have time to use yet, so today seemed like a great day to experiment with something new! Normally I will bake or pan fry my salmon, but today I wanted to do something a little more sophisticated with a little more depth to it. Continue reading

Chinese Crab Claws


This is one delicious and super easy to make appetizer for any occasion and its guaranteed to be a hit! Chinese deep fried crab claws are typically served in a upscale Chinese restaurant usually on a set menu. There is another variation that uses bamboo shoots instead of the crab claws served at higher end dim sum restaurants as well. These take minimal amount of time to prepare and to cook and they look incredible! Continue reading

Canapés Night


I wanted to make something really simple and easy to eat tonight. I didn’t have a lot of time and I wanted to get a lot of flavours into a small bite. I decided to make crostinis with some meat, cheese and my San Marzano tomato spread.

Luxury Birthday Dinner!


Tonight we were feeling lazy but I still wanted to have a good meal and in good company for my birthday. I invited over my co-worker and close friend Sungwoo and his girlfriend Diana to come and enjoy it with us! ** Special thanks to Sungwoo for taking a lot of these shots! With what I was cooking tonight, I would need four hands to cook and shoot at the same time!**

I had some leftovers from the flatbreads we made the previous night. So we decided to use those first. I made two more of the fennel and feta flatbreads, this time cooking them slightly less in the oven, so they were still soft and easy to eat, but with the same great taste. Continue reading

Later in the evening, I went for a walk with Jenny and we talked about what to do with it, we just wanted something simple. I came up with Flatbreads! This is something I have never made before and I was quite excited to try this out. Continue reading
