HUNGRY AND HAUNTED IN HUE

by Vespa Safari @ Vespa Safari

On my first day in Hue, I crossed the bridge into the old city from the South Bank, walking over the Perfume River and into the mist surrounding the Citadel. My goal was to find banh ep, a small disc made of tapioca or cassava flour flattened between two heavy iron plates and served at […]

The Gabriel Method and sprouted grain bread

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

One of the foods that Jon Gabriel talks about in his book The Gabriel Method: The Revolutionary DIET-FREE Way to Totally Transform Your Body , is breads (p89). That we should be eating, as much as possible, sprouted grain breads.

So I decided to check out if I could find sprouted grain bread in Kuala Lumpur.

Just my luck, a few days after reading the book, when I walked into the Jusco / MaxValue near my place, I spotted Anzen Sprouted Organic Grains bread with 18 organic grains. It's RM4.50 for a loaf of 360g.

Ingredients: Hulled Millet, black bean, mung bean, yellow and black soya bean, adzuki bean, brown flax see, golden flax seed, black sesame, sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, barley, buckwheat, oats groats, oat bran, regular rolled oats, instant rolled oats and wheat bran! Phew what a long exhausting list. It does use white flour in it too.

I found the bread texture somewhat like wholemeal bread with quite a fine texture. Perhaps it's because of the white flour. And it's also cut very thinly, which I'm not too crazy about. But it keeps well in the freezer and toasts well after. More info at http://www.dcorganic.com/

A few weeks later, I was at Cold Storage at The Curve and found the Adventist Bakery Sprouted Life Grain Bread with 7 grains. It's RM6.60 for a 450g loaf. When I was younger, we used to buy bread directly from the Adventist Hospital Bakery and it was so yummy. I'm glad that they've decided to also 'export' it out for Penang.

Now this one, I like. Texture wise, there's a nice bite to it and I can feel the whole grains and fibre. It's also sliced not so thin and tastes really nice toasted.

Ingredients: Millet, wheat, corn, oats, rye, soya and lentils. There's no flour in their recipe but they have honey, molasses, corn oil and yeast. The fact that there's no flour is a plus point and probably accounts for the nice 'rough' texture.

So, my recommendation is the Adventist Bakery Sprouted Life Grain bread.

[Article] Pig's feet: the new superfood

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

*Pigs' feet: the new superfood*
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/3353631/Pigs-feet-the-new-superfood.html

As Britain 's spending on cosmetic surgery soars, Fiona MacDonald Smith suggests it's time that we chopped and changed our diet instead .

The latest anti-ageing food? Pigs' trotters. That's right, you heard it here first.
In New York , the most talked-about new opening of the past couple of months has been a Japanese restaurant called Hakata Tonton, where 33 out of the 39 dishes contain pigs' feet.

The reason for this, according to its owner, Himi Okajima, is that they are rich in collagen, the protein responsible for skin and muscle tone, more recognizable to beauty addicts in the form of face creams and fillers.

"Collagen helps your body retain moisture," says Okajima, who has introduced a chain of restaurants specializing in collagen cuisine in Japan . "Your hair and skin will look better, but it's not just for looking beautiful now. If you begin eating collagen in your thirties, you will look younger in your forties."

Maybe this sounds a little improbable ( "It's news to me," sniffs Lisa Miles of the British Nutrition Foundation. "I've certainly never heard of eating collagen." ) but Okajima believes he is on to something. Figures published last month show that British spending on cosmetic surgery is the highest in Europe , hitting nearly £500 million in 2006, four times more than in 2001.

Isn't there a cheaper solution? Couldn't eating the right foods, in the right way, be a simpler, and ultimately more long-term way to stay looking and feeling younger? "You are what you eat," says nutritional therapist Ian Marber, aka The Food Doctor.

"You can't turn the clock back but you can slow things down. Every cell replicates from RNA and DNA. In order to keep the DNA in good condition, you want to protect cells from harmful free radicals. And for this you need to eat fruit and vegetables, which contain vital anti-oxidants like vitamins A, C, E and zinc.

"It doesn't have to be expensive," he adds. "I know people go on about so-called 'superfoods' which have a greater concentration of anti-oxidants, but two apples a day will give you plenty of vitamins and fibre. You just need to ensure a varied diet."

"The key is to remember we're omnivorous," agrees nutritionist Christian Lee, who is the national trainer for the Dr Nicholas Perricone cosmetics and nutrition empire. "Have you ever noticed how women age more rapidly than men?

That's because they don't eat enough protein. The days you don't eat protein are the days you age. The body can't store protein, but it needs it for cellular production and function. "

At each meal you should be able to hold up three fingers and say 'I've got a good source of protein (lean fish or poultry, nuts, seeds or tofu); an essential fatty acid ( Omega 3 or 6, so that's coldwater oily fish, flaxseeds, linseeds ) and a low glycaemic carbohydrate ( fruit, vegetables, and whole grains like quinoa, buckwheat and oatmeal )'. If you can say that, you're on the right road."

Perricone, a dermatologist, became America's most famous anti-ageing specialist with his "Three-Day Nutritional Face Lift", which extolled the virtues of eating wild Alaskan salmon twice a day, claiming its essential fatty acids would banish puffiness and tighten the skin. Uma Thurman, Heidi Klum and J-Lo are all fans.

In his new book Ageless Face, Ageless Mind, which has yet to reach the UK, Dr Perricone's team assert that up to 40 per cent of wrinkles are caused by dietary sugar. "When you eat high glycaemic carbohydrates like bread, cakes and pasta, they turn into sugar in the blood so fast that the pancreas can't respond with enough insulin and the blood becomes saturated with sugar," argues Christian Lee. "The sugar needs to go somewhere so it attaches itself to the cell membranes.

When it does this to collagen molecules in the skin, it causes the collagen to become stiff and immobile and that's the birth of the wrinkle. The bad news is that it doesn't end there - the sugar then pumps out free radicals, causing a double whammy of damage. The good news is you can prevent it - either by cutting out sugar or by taking a supplement of alpha lipoid acid, which is 400 times stronger than vitamin C and E combined."

So ditch the sugar, but don't forget the pigs' trotters.

FOODSTUFFS THAT KEEP YOU YOUNG
*Spinach* contains the pigment lutein, present in the retina, which helps maintain the health of the eye.

*Tomatoes* contain the anti-oxidant lycopene, which can protect the skin from UV damage from the sun.

*Purple or red berries* - such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries - are full of anthocyanins which can help protect against diabetes, heart disease and cancer, and help maintain strong arteries.

*Oily fish*, such as fresh water salmon, herring, mackerel and sardines, and also flax seeds and linseeds, are the main source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can delay the ageing process of the skin.

*Water*: drinking more aids digestion and elimination; drinking too little can harm the complexion.

....AND SOME THAT AGE YOU
*Carbonated drinks* - along with tea, coffee, sugar, red meat and alcohol - can push the body's balance towards the acidic, meaning that alkaline minerals (such as calcium) are removed from bone stores to balance it, weakening the bones. Restricting them may help you keep stronger bones.

*Nightshade vegetables* - potatoes, tomatoes, chillies, aubergine and peppers - while often healthy in other respects, contain a chemical that studies suggest can activate pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. Avoiding these foods may help reduce it.

*Refined carbohydrates* - such as white bread, white rice, sugary cereals, pasta and noodles - contribute to the development of type II diabetes, which accelerates the ageing process and, if not controlled, can lead to a wide range of other health problems.

[Article] Dark secret of the Thai glutinous rice

Dark secret of the Thai glutinous rice
By : Sim Bak Heng

Source: http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/NST/Sunday/Frontpage/2443479/Article/index_html

MUAR: Watch out if you're buying black glutinous rice in Thailand. It could be just plain white rice dyed black.

Housewife Tan Siew Sin, of Taman Sri Emas, brought back some black glutinous rice from a vacation in Thailand recently, only to discover its dark secret when she soaked it to clean it."The water became as dark as black ink."I soaked it repeatedly but the water remained black in colour.

"I went to a sundry shop and bought a bag of local black glutinous rice and soaked it in water to compare. The water remained clear," she said.

Tan brought her complaint to Bentayan state assemblyman Gwee Tong Hiang yesterday.She said she broke a few grains of the rice from both batches. The Thai rice was white on the inside while the local version was the same as the outside. She suspected the rice had been dyed to fetch a higher price.

"I haven't cooked the rice from Thailand because I'm afraid it might be a health hazard.

"I'm bringing this up in the press to warn people to be extra careful when buying black glutinous rice in Thailand."

Gwee said the sample of the Thai rice Tan had given him would be sent to the Health Ministry to determine whether it had any harmful additives or colouring.

He urged all consumers to take extra care when shopping for food items outside the country.

The Everlasting Tupperware

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

So, when my aunt moved out of her home of like 30 years into a small apartment, there was lots of stuff to clear. As I was moving to my new place, her Tupperware collection inadvertently found it's way to my place.

Amazingly, most of the tupperwares were brand new and even though they were probably from like about 20 years ago, it still looked good and relevant in my new kitchen. I've been using most of the tupperware to store all kinds of condiments. Also found the ice lolly moulds which I will try out one of these days.

Anyway, I was looking to get some more tupperware containers and then I realised, I don't know any tupperware salespeople. So, I turned to Google and found that you can now buy Tupperware over the net from this site Tupperware2u. What great idea! I could order and pay without leaving my home and they delivered it to my home.

From time to time, there's a promotion on and apart from Tupperware, you can also get the Beauticontrol stuff. They are also promoting other non-Tupperware products on it too.

Organic Clean Chickens from DQ Clean Chicken

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

I received a flyer in my mailbox the other day - about DQ Clean Chickens. It's one of the flyers I didn't throw out as I wanted to read more about it.

So, DQ chickens are not just free-range chickens but they're also grassfed, no hormones, no steroid, antibiotic free, no pesticides and chemical free. I also read with great interest that the chickens are not debeaked and their grazing area is moved all the time. To me, this is important.

You see, chickens are dirty animals and on normal farms, they would basically live and grow in their own waste. Even free range chickens - they may not be caged but then if they're running around in the same dirty area and there's no more grass to eat?

But these people at DQ rotate the hens every few days so that they not only have new grass, but their waste gets dried up and becomes fertiliser.

One of these days I will try one of these clean chickens. To date, I haven't yet bought any chicken to cook as it's a lot of one person. But I have tried out their eggs (only because it's the only pack that sell in 6 - the smallest quantity). The eggs are yummy and HUGE - now I know why they cost double the normal eggs!

Anyway, their website is http://www.dqcleanchicken.com/. Do check it out and learn more about the chicken you may be consuming.

They also do home delivery or you can buy from their stockist / agents:

Mutton Curry Salad

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

So, LN managed to get a copy of the The The Gabriel Method: The Revolutionary DIET-FREE Way to Totally Transform Your Body for me while she was in Sydney. The author, Jon Gabriel, was supposed to have come to Malaysia a few months ago but didn't quite make it. I was curious about his book, but couldn't find it in Malaysian bookstores.

Anyway, got the book and found it a very interesting read. There's no mention of a diet anywhere! He talks about eating healthy; making your body crave healthy food instead of junk food, about eating food with 'life' in it i.e. raw/lightly cooked to retain nutrients, etc.

I found this very close to my beliefs about food (after having gone for the 10 day Fasting Program at Spa Samui and all) so after weeks of boiling everything into a soup (so I was craving soup!) I decided to go SALADS!

One of the things he said was that not everyone likes salad but in order to get more veges into your body, try turning everything into a salad. I decided to take on the challenge!

My staples for salad:
- Purple cabbage
- Carrots
- Yellow Peppers
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Japanese cucumbers

The above veges make for a lovely salad which has beautiful colours and I read somewhere that it's good to have many different colors in you food.

Occasionally I'll add some boiled eggs, potatoes. If i feel like some meat, depending on what I have at home, I may add bit of sausage or pepperoni, etc.

The other day, I added some chicken - marinated with whole grain mustard and grilled, before cutting in to smaller bit sizes and mixed in the salad.

Today, I decided to clear out my freezer because my fridge is playing up a little. Found a packet of dry mutton curry. At the same time, I was trying to finish up the salad ingredients. Then I thought to myself, why not have a mutton curry salad?

The results were yummy!! As it's a dry mutton curry, I heated it up, cut into smaller pieces and just mixed it through the salad and the little bit of gravy made of a nice salad dressing so I didn't have to add any other salad dressing to it anymore! Perhaps not the healthiest, but hey .. better than having mutton curry with banana leaf rice and everything else :)

In the The Gabriel Method, Jon also mentioned lasagna salad .. that, I've gotta try~~!

The boook is highly recommended, and it comes with a Visualization CD to listen to every night ...

For more information on Jon, go to http://www.jongabriel.com.au/

[Article] Foods You'll Want to Taste While in France

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

After reading this, I'm thinking .. French-themed dinner anyone? I'm good with everything except the frog legs .. :)

Foods You'll Want to Taste While in France
Adapted From: France For Dummies, 4th Edition
http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/DummiesArticle/id-5275.html?cid=etipArticleLink?cid=articleFeature

Tasting the amazing cuisine of France is one of the best reasons for visiting the country. Being adventurous is key: Many of the best foods in France are rarely seen in the United States — and if they are, they taste better in France. You can put your trust in French chefs because they take great pride in the freshness and preparation of their food. Restaurant meals, with five to seven courses, last several hours, so you'll need to pace yourself (and don't fill up on bread, no matter how wonderful it is).

Café au lait (ca-fay oh LAY)
Café au laitis espresso with steamed milk (similar to a latté you'd order at any American coffee bar), and it's the perfect eye-opener for the morning or pick-me-up for the afternoon. It's sometimes called a café crème. No, it isn't American coffee — it's much better. What many French people drink for a quick pick-me-up during the day and also after meals is un espresso, a tiny cup of very strong . . . well, espresso. For decaffeinated, ask for café decaffeiné or un déca.

Croissant (kwah-SAWN)
These popular breakfast rolls are pretty much available around the world now, but if you think you know all about croissants, think again. Croissants in France, a staple at every bakery in the country, taste very different from ones you get in other countries. They're light, flaky, and irresistibly buttery.

Pain au chocolat (PAN o shawk-oh-LAH)
A kids' favorite, this delicious breakfast pastry is a square croissant filled with dark chocolate, and you're likely to find one at any bakery (pâtisserie) in the country. The French eat a light (continental) breakfast of a croissant and pastry with coffee. That way, they save up big appetites for lunch and dinner, which are multicourse extravaganzas.

Croque-monsieur (croak mis-SYER)
Croque-monsieuris ham and melted cheese on a croissant, usually served open-faced. Available at most cafes, it's the perfect light lunch sandwich. A croque madame is the same but with a grilled egg on top.

Escargot (es-car-GO)
Yes, like Lucy Ricardo (remember that episode of I Love Lucy?), while in France you need to try snails, served in their shells with lots of butter, garlic, and parsley. They're luscious, tender little treats, but what you'll taste most is garlic. Snails are a true French delicacy.

Bouillabaisse (booh-ya-BESSE)
This hearty fish stew, a meal in itself, is the specialty of Provence (especially Marseille) and the Riviera. At some restaurants, the fish — many types — is served separately from the broth. When you're served the soup, you may also be served round, toasted pieces of bread and a hot peppery sauce called rouille. What you do is spread the sauce on the bread and plop the bread into the stew or pour the broth over the bread. Then you can add the fish or consume it separately. A cousin of bouillabaisse is bourride, another authentic fish soup in vogue along the Mediterranean.

Cuisses de grenouilles (cweess duh gre-NOO-yuh)
Frogs' legs do taste a little like chicken, but they're saltier and more delicate. You'll find the best examples of this classic French dish in the Loire Valley.

Pâté de foie gras (pat-ay duh fwoh GRAH)
A staple of every fancy restaurant in France is goose liver pâté, which is often à la maison (homemade) and poêlé (pan-fried). Rich and creamy, with dense flavor and a delicate texture, pâté de foie gras is a quintessential French food.

Des truffes (des TROOF)
France's most expensive food, delectable truffes (truffles) are a rare kind of black fungus (like mushrooms) that need to be dug out of the ground by special dogs or pigs trained for the task of locating them. Truffle season is November to March. Truffles appearing on any dish (aux truffes) up the price of the meal by 25 or more euros ($30). Look for them particularly on omelets and pasta.

Chariot de fromage (chair-ree-aht duh frwoh-MAZH)
Ah, the chariot of cheese: brie, camembert, Roquefort, chèvre, Gruyère, and so on. At the best restaurants, the selection of cheeses is so enormous, it must be wheeled to you on a trolley. When the waiter brings it over, ask which are the best cheeses of the region ("Les fromages de la region?"), and choose which ones you want by pointing to several. The waiter will serve them, and you can eat them with a knife and fork.

Tarte tartin, soupe de fraises, ile flotant, crème brûlée, mousse au chocolat (tart tah-TIHN, soup duh FREZ, eel flo-TAHNT, krem bruh-LAY, moose oh shawk-oh-LAH)
Apple tart, boozy strawberry soup, floating island (meringue with a custard sauce), custard topped with caramel, chocolate mousse . . . and the list goes on. Having dessert in a French restaurant is reason enough to visit the country. C'était bon!

[Idea] Restaurants can sms guest who are waiting

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

What a great idea! In Malaysia, I had a similar experience with the Westin Kuala Lumpur. When I called to make reservations; immediately after putting the phone down, I received an SMS confirming my reservation. A day before the booking, received another SMS reminder/confirmation. AFTER having my meal there, received a thank you SMS within the hour!

Restaurants page waiting guests on their cellphones
Source: Springwise

Providing a new solution to an old problem, ReadyPing lets restaurants notify guests by text message when their table is ready. The system aims to improve on restaurant pagers, which require a substantial upfront investment plus maintenance costs, and have a limited range. Restaurants don't need to purchase new hardware to use ReadyPing; all that's required is an internet connection and a computer. ReadyPing charges a flat monthly fee of USD 35, which includes sending an unlimited number of 'pings'.

To use the system, hosts enter a party's name, number of guests, and their mobile number. When their table is available, the host clicks a button to send a customizable text message.

Launched in January 2009, ReadyPing is currently only available in the United States, but it definitely has potential in other time-strapped parts of the world. Of course, there's no reason why similar systems couldn't be used by other types of businesses. One to brainstorm on?

Haagen Daaz 'Five' - Simplicity in ice cream

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

Unfortunately, only available in the USA currently. Wonder if we Malaysians will ever see it here? Or perhaps I could take the 5 ingredients and try it out in my ice cream machin ... hmmm...that's an idea :)
Haagen-Dazs 'Five' - just 5 ingredients
Source: Springwise
As a delicacy with relative affordability and universal appeal, ice cream is one of those products that serves as a barometer of the times. We've covered ice cream innovations at the high end—such as the Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream Company and its locally sourced, hormone-free ice creams in flavours like ginger, giandujia and red currant—as well as convenience-focused novelties like the MooBella vending machine. Next up? Simplicity, if the Häagen-Dazs Five line is any indication.

Häagen-Dazs Five is a new, all-natural ice cream crafted with only five ingredients: skim milk, cream, sugar, egg yolks and natural flavouring. Available in mint, ginger, coffee, vanilla bean, passion fruit, brown sugar and milk chocolate, the Five line also includes less fat than Häagen-Dazs's other ice creams, the company says. It's now available in stores, and an online flavour finder helps identify availability by ZIP code. Pricing is roughly USD 7 per pint.

Pure, natural, simple—in today's ailing economic climate, such adjectives hold a nostalgic appeal. Everyday consumers may not be able to afford the big luxuries, but at least there's still good, old-fashioned ice cream! ;-)

What to do with vegetables

by noreply@blogger.com (nekochan) @ Food Safari ~ It's MAKAN time!

As i'm going to be away next week, I had to finish up all the perishables in the kitchen.
What I had ..
- garlic
- onions
- pumpkin
- potatoes
- tomatoes
- carrots
- purple cabbage
- parsley

OK, so a salad was out of the question; can't eat raw pumpkin ...
Was thinking of roasting all the veges - but can't really roast cabbage ...
So I decided on a quick vegetable curry stew

It's simple
chop up all the veges
Oil into the pot, adding garlic and onions and fry till fragrant
Add chopped tomatoes
Add 1 tablespoon of curry powder and some water
Add carrots, then pumpkins and potatoes - boil

Later, what I did was put the chopped raw cabbage and parsley on top of the rice and then pour the hot curry/stew on top. Yummy and pretty healthy too!
