Matcha Latte

Homemade, February 2011 in Vienna, Austria

I was in Japan last year and brought this small can of matcha from Uji, the ancient city that has been famous for green tea cultivation since centuries, after attending a tea ceremony.

Here’s an animation video on how to prepare matcha: http://www.ippodo-tea.co.jp/tea/matcha_01.html

*This matcha latte is with soy milk and muscovado sugar.

Homemade, Christmas Eve 2009 in Vienna, Austria

Can’t say it’s typical, goose is our choice of “Festessen” (festive food in German, i.e. banquet or Christmas dinner) this year.

Stuffed with apples and marrons glacés (candied chestnuts) and grilled in oven, this traditional Austrian dish is served with Rotkraut, and instead of Serviettenknödel (dumpling) we made Kartoffelknödel (potato dumpling).

*Rotkraut is red cabbage prepared with sugar, onions, red wine, apples, and lingonberry jam

Recently I enjoy very much to “cook by the book”. Some people think it’s too simple, but <The Instant Cook> by Donna Hay provides a lot of inspiration for people who cook often and do not always have much time to prepare.

Homemade, November 2008 in Vienna, Austria

Beef noodle soup is one of the most representative food in Taiwan, and it is also the dish I miss most when I’m abroad. So I try to make it by myself, as many other drifting souls do.

This is actually at a good friend’s place. He is such a passionate hobby cook and a perfectionist that I always feel as if I were in a star restaurant when invited to his house.
