Chengdu Guo Kui – Recipe

One of the things I ate in Chengdu that I've never eaten before was 锅盔 guo kui, a crispy fried multi-layered flatbread / pastry thing filled with spicy and numbing beef. I'm going back to Chengdu in September, but you know what? I can't wait to eat guo kui again. So I decided to have a go at making it.

Strawberry Sakura Roll Cake – Recipe

I'm back from my solo travels in Asia! OK so technically I've been back for a week, but I came down with a cold from hell, so I've been out of action until now. I was thinking since it's spring and the trees are in full bloom, I ought to make something with cherry blossoms. I happen to have some sakura tea, sakura bean paste and pickled sakura blossoms in my cupboard (as you do). Perfect.
