In My Kitchen – Between three places – September 2015

When I started writing this post in the middle of July I was really excited to share some final glimpses of my Korean kitchen. I had planned on sharing photos of a few things like my rice cooker that had helped me so much in the 3+ years I had been there. However, the madness that led me to go home early and the subsequent seven weeks have meant that picking up a camera and even writing a little bit has been tough! Technically this kitchen is more of a July Kitchen than an August one as I still am having difficulty having any desire to take a photo or to even cook  but it does show some of the things  from my kitchen that I loved and some of the things I made in my last few weeks in Korea.

In My (Korean) Kitchen – June 2015

Wow, that month has flown by! I can’t believe that it is already June and I am in the homestretch of my time in Korea – just 9 brief weeks are left!  This last month has incredibly busy and the next 9 weeks promise to be even busier. However, despite the craziness, once again, I am participating in the “In My Kitchen” blog series by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial that provides glimpses into other bloggers kitchens. It’s a great way to be introduced to new blogs, new recipes and a great community. In my kitchen, this week were some leftovers from a wonderful meal with my friends here in Korea. On Sunday, we all got together and ate some Egyptian, Turkish, Indian and Bangladeshi food. I provided most of the food from raitas to Korma to Koshary. Some of my friends also made carmalised bananas, masala chai, yellow rice and naan bread. Everything was amazing and the company, as always, superb. The leftovers included chicken korma (top right), koshary (t-l), khichiri(b-r) and cholè (b-l). (Only a …

In my (Korean) Kitchen – May 2015

In my kitchen is a wonderful blog series by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial that provides glimpses into other bloggers kitchens. I’ve been creeping around looking at all the gorgeous kitchens for a few months and it’s really interesting to see what other people have in their kitchen and what they have been cooking. It’s a great way to be introduced to new blogs, new recipes and a great community. Thank you so much, Celia for the opportunity! I hope you like this post and I can do another one next time. It was a lot of fun looking around my kitchen (in Korea) and seeing how to incorporate my bits and bobs.
