Christmas Parsnip Soup (Grossmummy's curried parsnip soup :)

My stomach has been quite sore recently and besides cutting out quite a few foods for awhile and taking some natural remedies my natural health doctor has suggested that I eat more soup!

Hai by Goga by Bradley Turley

Tuna Edamame & Potato Salad - enoki and golden thread mushrooms, wasabi aioli ¥150

Just realised that I never actually published this and didn't quite finish either anyways the food is delicious so here is what I have written. I am off to Shanghai on Wednesday and looking forward to my next meal at Hai by Goga which is just around the corner from my hotel.

House salad with Grilled Halloumi and Grated Beet

I almost want to leave this post with one line, my flatmate ate this salad and had seconds!
But I guess i will have to go into the topic a bit more because you don't know Cribs. He doesn't like most vegetables especially mushrooms, possibly carrots, mashed potatoes and many more but I cannot think of them right now.

Gluten/Dairy Free Chocolate Almond Meal Cake

I made almond milk for the first time the other day and was seriously surprised how good it was. After making the milk I had a bunch of almond meal left over so I decided to try making a gluten and dairy free almond meal cake. After searching around Pinterest I came across this recipe from Edible Perspective, it looked good and had lots of nice comments so I decided to give it a go!

How to make Almond Milk

Generally I just buy nut milk from the grocery store but thought I would give making my own a try.It’s actually quite easy and it tastes wayyyy better then the stuff from the grocery store. I recently picked up a nut milk bag, and had  grand plans of waking up before work and making nut milk. I put the almonds to soak on Thursday night, I woke up on Friday morning but the desire to sleep in a bit longer resulted in no nut milk.

Mu Shu Pork 木須肉

I had recently seen cloud ears when walking through the market, so i decided to try to make Mu Shu Pork one of my favorite Chinese dishes from when i was little. I want to try and cook a new dish every few weeks trying to use something i am not completely familiar with from the wet market.
