Choco Cheese Banana Bread
I love Choco Cheese Banana Bread, I used to eat it when I was still staying in Jakarta. I really love sweet bread, especially with lots and lots of chocolate in it. I’m normally not the type of the person who likes to bake a bread, basically I didn’t have that much of confident in me that I can bake a bread successfully. Well… I believe that this might be the same mind-set that all of us who are amateur or beginner in cooking might be thinking Continue Reading »

This is my husband’s favorite meal, he likes to eat it along with the veg chowmein. It’s preety easy to make it and it doesn’t take so much of time. Very ideal for people who don’t have so much of time to cook… just like me
In India, especially in Kolkata, baby corn is quite popular as part of chinesse dish. But in some part of area in Kolkata, people don’t even know what is baby corn. One day when I went to the market to buy baby corns, one lady asked me what was that and she also asked me how do I cook it. I could understand because not all the market sell baby corn. So far that I know, It is only available in big department store such as Big Bazaar, Spencer and couple of markets in South Kolkata.

This website is very much inspired by an inspiring movie Ratatouille. For you who don’t like animated movie (like my hubby), you might missed the wonderful message inside this movie.
The movie is about a mouse named Remy who had a dream of becoming a chef. He was very inspired when he saw a book “Anyone Can Cook” which was written by a very known chief. He has a gift to sense the smell and taste.
After he went through many things and separated from his family, he ended up Gusteau’s restaurant where he met a young boy named Linguini who cannot cook but really wanted to become a chef.
Anyway, at the end of the story, both Remy and Linguini finally ran a restaurant together.
The part which I like from this movie is when Remy showed his brother how good is to taste two kind of foods at once, especially when he finally could cook the mushroom with the cheese with the help of the lightning. Wow… that’s amazing.
I know that I’m not the best chef on earth, and I count myself as an amateur in cooking. But I believe it is always worthwhile to try and if we cook with the whole of our heart and not affraid to take the risk, even the simplest recipe can be a great dish.
I do really hope that this website can inspire those who are like me . There was a saying, the key to men’s hearts is through their stomachs. But I would like to say, the key to everyone’s heart is through the food which you cook with the whole of your heart
So, don’t be affraid to cook for the people whom you love even if you cannot cook
Veg Fried Bihun
Rice noodle which we called “Bihun” in Indonesian or “Bee Hoon” is made from rice and water, but sometimes other ingredients such as starch is added to give the chewy texture and transparent look.
Rice noodle also known as Rice Vermicelli or Rice Stick, in India, rice noodle is also known as “Sevai”. As per my knowledge, sevai doesn’t have the chewy or firm texture like any other rice noodles in south East Asia. Continue Reading »
Fried Chicken in Sweet Butter Sauce
The tasty secret of this dish is the mixture of 3 sauces, cooked with butter instead of oil. It’s quite Indonesian traditional dish … well, so far that I know. One of the sauces which we use for this dish is sweet soy sauce.
Soy sauce which we also called shoyu in Japanese, is a fermented sauce made from soy beans. Base per the history which I found from Wikipedia, Soy sauce was invented in China, where it has been used as a condiment for close to 2,500 years. In its various forms it is widely used in East and Southeast Asian cuisines and increasingly appears in Western cuisine and prepared foods. Continue Reading »
