Kitchen Kulture

Cooking is the sort of thing where you’ve got to get “in the mood” for it. There are days when I shift into full gear and cook up a storm (even when no one else is eating), and then there are days when I couldn’t be bothered and eat takeaways instead. Any meal attempted without being “in the mood” usually ends up in disaster.

I got into the cooking mood this evening. It must’ve been a bad case of Monday blues or the fact that the tram disruptions got the better of me, but I came home feeling the urge to cook up something! Anything! I’ve been thinking about cooking Japanese food all week so I rummaged through my pantry (and freezer) and came up with this…


Clockwise from top left:
1. All laid out on the dinner table
2. Inari sushi
3. Grilled spanish mackeral marinated in ponzu and served with dipping sauce (kecap manis, shallots, garlic, ginger and chives)
4. Cold tofu with pork floss

Ok so it came with a fusion twist but it was an incredibly healthy, refreshing and satisfying meal.
