How To Prepare Daikon and this salad is one of my favourite ways eat daikon. The daikon and carrots are pickled overnight in a vinegar and sugar mixture, other ingredients such as sesame oil or ginger can be added depending what flavours you like and which country its served in. This salad is often found in China, Japan, and Vietnam, in China and Japan it is usually served as a side dish in Vietnam it is traditionally served on Bánh mì sandwiches.

Recently I entered the Foodie Simplot Mooncake Challenge where you had to use 40% Simplot products in a mooncake (mashed potato powder and potato starch). To start I went to the foodie office where I was given the most gigantic can of instant mashed potatoes I have ever seen and a few bags of potato starch, after managing to carry it home, I proceed to try and open the can and cover myself and most of the counter in instant mashed potato powder! After getting the potato under control I decided to make a western version inspired by the Sheperd's pie with a layer of mash potato and a layer of meat, pork because its more common in Hong Kong and a quail egg in the centre to represent the salted egg yolk the is in the centre of most mooncakes.

Tang Yuan, warm glutinous rice balls with sweet black sesame paste centre which are quite my favourite Chinese dessert. Tang Yuan are served traditionally during the lantern festival, winter solstice and Chinese weddings but can be found all year around at dim sum restaurants in Hong Kong.
