In the late eighties, I lived in Peru for 4 years and I had the most idyllic and simple kitchen there, where I fermented my veggies. I have tried to reproduce this kitchen based on my memories.. I think the walls were a little less neatly painted, but memories can adapt over the years.... ;-)
Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish consisting of pickled vegetables, which is mainly served as a side dish with every meal, but also can be served as a main dish. Kimchi is mainly recognized as a spicy fermented cabbage dish globally. (this is not a traditional version of kimchi as usually there is fish sauce this recipe is vegan). For this recipe you will need a few small bowls for holding the ingredients at different stages, a few clean air tight jars (make sure your jars are properly cleaned and dry otherwise your kimchi may spoil), a sharp knife, a blender, weighing scales.
Ribollita is a traditional recipe from the place where I come from, Tuscany, and in it there are, obviously, beans! Hope you like it ;-) It means re-cooked because you have to cook it twice, and also it is known that the day after you cook it, Ribollita is even better tasting.
I've BEAN around the World
What better fits this time of year in January than a wonderful tasting and warming Ribollita, what means boiled again. Of course with lots of beans, white beans and in this recipe they are Great Northern Beans. In Italy, Cannellini Beans are used and the famous Ribollita comes from there, more precisley from Tuscany, but is popular throughout the country. Especially on the days of the blackbird, that are the last three days in January. Originally it’s a leftover soup which is served the next day with stale bread and sprinkles of olive oil.
Lahpet or pickled tea is the most iconic of Burmese foods and unique to the country. It’s eaten in two main ways – as a-hlu lahpet, where the ingredients are served in a beautiful, divided lacquerware dish (aka Mandalay lahpet), and as a salad known as lahpet thoke (aka as Yangon lahpet).Eat as a snack, as a palate-cleanser at the end of a meal or with rice.

Global Cuisine Design Challenge (although I've had this idea since the food memories challenge - of preparing food with my mum and auntie in a loving but organised chaos kitchen)
I grew up eating lots of delicious Korean food in Los Angeles so of course I love kimchi. I've been making it at home for years, mostly since I lived in Europe and couldn't find it readymade in the shops. This is the recipe I "follow" but to be honest I'm not much of a measurer! Traditional recipes vary a lot, but usually they add rice flour. I always forget to buy it so I never use it! Vegetarians and vegans can leave out fish sauce and add extra salt. I use this recipe for other veggies like green onions and root vegetables too. Enjoy!
