When I first started cooking, I had this desire to put anything and everything I had in my pantry in my food. Spices, sauces, liquids, bases, marinades, literally, everything. I thought this would elevate the taste but it (most of the time) never turned out the way I wanted to. I realized later that in cooking, it's the simple ingredients and the simple flavors that help elevate a dish. It all come down to the ingredients, the quality and the freshness and technique. Ducksoup, a cookbook from Chronicle Books has become my essential cookbook for simple cooking. Take a look below at the 2 recipes from the book I tried out, and let me tell you, I even made it the next day, it was so easy and tasty! Read along for the full rundown.
If you've been following me on Instagram lately, you've noticed I took an awesome trip to Thailand. It was such an amazing time - flew into Bangkok, went to Phuket, Chiang Mai and ended our trip back in Bangkok. When arriving back in Bangkok, I went straight to Banyan Tree Bangkok. Banyan Tree Bangkok is known for it's popular rooftop destination, where you can overlook the whole city. It's pretty spectacular. But alongside that, is also an amazing property, with gorgeous rooms and and overall great hotel experience. Follow along below for more pictures and what we ate!
