Asian cuisine is amazing. however, I didn’t always feel that way Asian cooking to me was never high on my list of weaknesses. Until, I actually started researching what Asian Cuisine really was.
It is flavourful, colourful and playful.
It comes from humble origins, and has kept traditions as generations have rolled by.
In the same breath, it has advanced with the growth of technology, social media and tourism.
Liverpool has an amazing food scene. We even have our own China Town in the city center.
But the dishes that are served, are far removed from those that are cooked in traditional households.
Or available from the ready meal aisle in the supermarket.
Asian cuisine is fresh, full of colour and beautiful spices and broths.
Some is cooked fast, hello stir fry. However, there is more to Asian cuisine then a wok and some sweet and sour chicken balls.
Hand pulled noodles, and gyoza. Ramen and shabu-shabu.
Sushi is amazing, and adaptable to pretty much everyone. However fussy the eater.
It doesn’t have to be raw fish, or bland veg wrapped in some rice. It can be whatever you want to make it.
You like it spicy? Try Szechuan! Want it sweet? Let’s go honey!
Once you have got the hang of the flavours you want in your food, the rest is easy.
So put down the fast food menu, grab some veg and soy sauce and meet me in the kitchen.
