Gong Fu tea: Calming down, with enthusiasm.

Gong Fu tea is sometimes written in English with the spelling 'Kung Fu' tea, but this isn't the same as Kung Fu Panda's kung fu. Gong Fu in this case means making tea with care, effort, and time.

If you are very experienced in tasting tea, it is similar to being a wine expert. The region where the tea plants grow, the process of fermenting, roasting, and so on all have an influence on tea prices.

台灣茶點:鳳梨酥與烏龍茶

不知是什麼時候開始的,台灣幾乎所有的糕餅店都賣起鳳梨酥了,許多的觀光客人都還沒到台灣,就已經計劃著要帶鳳梨酥回去分享親友。

記憶中,小時候偶爾會吃到鳳梨酥,但多是家裡親友來訪時帶來的伴手禮。我們到麵包店或是糕餅店也不會主動想買鳳梨酥,總認為鳳梨酥是給老人家買的,我們小孩子想要的是西式的蛋糕,鳳梨酥跟這些造型誘人的西式甜點比起來顯得太土了。

Making Chinese tea western style

It's possible to make Chinese Tea even if you don't have the traditional tea making equipment and tea pots. You just need good Chinese tea leaves, a source of boiling water, and any teapot and cups.

Enjoy your meal with Chinese Tea

Many of my guests' experience of drinking tea in some Chinese restaurants is that the tea tastes too bitter. They might even feel some stomach pain or feel dizzy after drinking it. It's because the tea leaves have been brewed in the tea pot too long, or they used too much tea. When you are served this over-brewed tea, it's better not to drink it. It's not healthy and it won't make your delicious dishes taste better. Tell them the tea is too old, and ask the waiter to bring another pot of freshly brewed tea.

全球最美的夜市:泰國華欣 蟬鳴夜市 Cicada night market

Cicada weekend night market in Takiab, near Hua Hin, Thailand 第一次騎車經過這裡還以為有人在開party ,濃密的大樹上掛滿了一盞盞的天燈,大樹下擺了許多的白色木質餐桌椅,遠遠傳來現場演唱的音樂,人們悠閒自在地在公園裡穿梭,這看起來太過癮了,這地方一定有好玩的,我決定下車掺一咖!

哇!泰國華欣 (Hua Hin) 這個鄉下地方竟然連機車位都難找,我以最快的腳步進入Cicada 公園 ,馬上吸引我注意的是白色餐桌上的美酒佳餚與輕鬆自在的食客,超浪漫!

公園裡的美食攤位看起來可是比餐廳還專業,所有人員一律白色廚師製服,所有攤位設計一致,這裡的攤位供應泰國美食也有各國的名菜如印度咖哩、日本壽司、漢堡薯條等。

我給自己買了泰式炒麵、薯條與啤酒,這簡單的幾樣就花了我二百泰銖,這是比一般夜市還高好幾倍的消費,但很值得因為這個夜市太美了。

  • 簡單原味的地中海平底鍋〈烤盤〉料理

    住在泰國鄉下的這段時間因為只有三星期,不想買許多食材或是調味料堆放,超市距離很遠,
    所以一切烹調手段從簡,想要燒出好菜的難度好像很高,但結果卻是簡單又原味。

    每天我用平底鍋加上橄欖油與鹽料理食物,準備最單純美味的地中海美食。

    平底鍋料理食物表現的是地中海食物的單純,原味,甜度與香度,烹煮的重點是溫火慢煎,絕對犯規的是大火快炒 (平底鍋很容易壞),平底鍋也可用烤盤取代

    以下是地中海平底鍋〈烤盤〉料理的簡單方法:
