Turmeric for Inflammation

Turmeric for Inflammation

The best spice for inflammation is turmeric. It helps ease digestive disturbances and is used fairly often in Indian cooking. Not only does it have anti inflammatory properties but it is used extensively in beauty products. Incorporating small doses into food and drink can really help the gut heal. I've seen this first hand . Especially with those suffering from digestive issues like IBS, gastritis, heartburn and pain. 

 

So the next time reach for your turmeric.

Pasta Making Class at CCC Kung Lee College

Today's class was filled with enthusiastic students learning the art of pasta making .  

We aimed at a basic roux and from there built a beautiful white sauce using a mirepoix and cream. The students also learnt the art of kneeding dough and various textures were created. All in all a successful class.

Gokul Vegetarian Review

There comes a time in everyone's life when one considers the thought of becoming a vegetarian . Like many before me, there have been many cravings of meat after the transition to vegetarianism.

Practicing yoga for some time now I think that vegetarianism really helps the mind and the clarity, not to mention the body and flexibility. 

As a chef myself I find it very difficult to cook meat but not eat it. The saying that you must try what you eat is not very relevant for a vegetarian chef. Due to my ethical principles right now I just can't bring myself to break this vegetarianism.

So whilst I was in Singapore for just one night I tried a vegetarian restaurant called Gokuls. They have a range of Malaysian, Chinese and Indian vegetarian items.

My Masi Dolly brought me and my sister there. We ordered the chicken rice Hainan style, of course vegetarian, The mutton Roganosh which was vegetarian as well, vegetarian satays and lastly a mee Siam, a dish indigenous to Malaysia with the sour yet sweet aftertaste. 

Being a foodie, I found the food to be spectacular. The flavors were so good that you didn't even know you were not eating meat. In fact, all those cravings of fried chicken wings and mutton that I've had in the past clearly vanished away whilst I savored the beautiful flavors of this food. So in truth, being a vegetarian is not that bad when you have access to restaurants such as this. Now the question of whether this is healthy for you can be a debate. However how healthy is meat anyway?

Not only is being vegetarian  good for your health, but it's good for the economy, ecology and every part of the earth.  (less methane gas in the atmosphere if you know what I mean)!

So now I'm stuck between either serving meat at my private kitchen here in Hong Kong or converting it to a fully vegetarian place of dining. Any opinions would be well noted. I just need to get those recipes down, and I'm sure I will have a following a vegetarian patrons. 

I wish you the best food journey and I do hope that one day you will consider becoming a vegetarian; helping our earth and ourselves. Not only is it practical but it also can help with the starvation problem in the world, and the disease so aren't in society such as obesity, type two diabetes and heart disease. 

If you're still not convinced I urge you to try it out for yourself!!!
