Do you taste when you eat? In other words, can you discern what it is that you’re eating and drinking when you consume food and beverages? I’m not referring to having a finely tuned palate as that of a chef or someone very familiar with food. Rather, I’m talking about the ability to determine that you are eating the breast meat of chicken rather than the thigh meat; that you’re eating beef and not lamb; or drinking tangerine juice and not orange juice.

My friend Kate Flour at A Merrier World is conducting a series, Edible Lives. It's an interview series through which she delves into the lives and works of food bloggers. Kate's approach is that of a conversation, her questions are well-thought out and provides an opportunity for insight into what it is we are doing and why. I am honoured to have been interviewed for the series and if you want to know more behind the name of my blog and my future work, do have a read.
Be sure to read previous interviews with Emily as she works towards Culinary School and Sue who gives you a front row seat to the Food Network and teaches you about things beyond the screen.
Breadfruit, boiled and then sauteed in a mustard paste. The paste I discovered back in 2007 at Sailu's blog and it's a favourite. Click here for her recipe. See Shn's version as well.
I love the flavour of Tom Yom - hot and sour and the versatility of it to be used in many dishes. When I saw Rita's Tom Yum Fried Rice, I knew I had to try it. Love it! Click here for her recipe.
I just saw the word cardamom and immediately bookmarked Syrie's Cardamom Custard. Here is her recipe. She served hers with caramelized oranges. Oh sweet fragrant cardamom!
Happy Weekend Everyone!
