To prepare the lemon and rosemary risotto with the prawns, start frying the garlic in a pan with a drizzle of oil. Let it brown and immediately add the shrimp, let it flavor for a few minutes and season with salt. When cooked, remove the shrimps and keep them aside, remove the garlic and add the rice. Toast for two minutes then blend with the white wine. Let the alcohol evaporate then add the boiling broth a little at a time. Chop half the lemon zest with the rosemary and squeeze the lemon juice. When almost cooked, add the lemon juice and the shrimp to the risotto. Serve by decorating with the mince of zest and rosemary. Enjoy your meal!
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.

I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into the first time I happened upon a Chinese hotpot restaurant, but the deliciousness is something everyone should experience! Hotpot has everything you could ask for in a great meal - a shared dinner filled with a variety of fresh ingredients that you get to cook yourself right at the table in a simmering pot of perfectly seasoned broth while socializing with your friends and family. Yes, please!
Fave Memory - I grew up in the British countryside an didn't try spicy fragrant Asian flavours until I was all grown up. I will never forget that first meal, my life was changed forever, and Asian cuisine has become a part of who I am and what I eat. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without ginger, garlic and chilli!
