What can I do that I really love orient food. I get my inspiration from Thai, Korean, Japanese, Chines and Vietnamese cuisines. They are full of taste, aromas, flavors and textures. They are always following the rule of “4 S”, meaning the balance in saltiness, sweetness, sourness and spiciness. Frankly speaking, it took me a lot of efforts, time and practice to find the balance.
This is type of food which just deeps you in the ocean of feelings! Here it is not used too many spices like in Indian or Moroccan cuisine. Just few ingredients fill the essence of taste, make it unusual and unforgettable.
What you need to cook orient food:
These are the basic ingredients. With them you can cook many flavorous soups, meals with noodles or rice.
Today I have cooked Lemongrass Soup with Noodles and Veggies. I love smell of lemongrass! It is something that makes me water-mouthing and I can’t stop eating. The same story with coconut milk. That is why these two ingredients I use a lot in my orient food.
For such soups I prefer using Japanese thick fresh noodles (Nakano) as they becomes very silky and soft. The way how you cut veggies for sure influences the taste and look. Remember about the way of eating as well. If you are going to use chopsticks – cut on big slices or pieces, if using a spoon – cut on smaller chunks.
