    Banoffee Pie Recipe

    I don’t think I appreciated just how British a banoffee pie recipe is until I began selling it at Jiashan market, only to discover it’s still relatively unknown outside of the UK. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for this 1970’s culinary creation to the extent that many a quarrel with my siblings would erupt as to who got the last slice (sharing was of course never an option!). Brotherly bickering aside, its a real crowd pleaser and, without fail, always one of the first items to sell out. It’s delicious, incredibly simple to prepare and,…

    Lemon passion fruit curd swiss roll

    Swiss rolls are one of the true old fashioned teatime treats that have stood the test of time.

In an almost clinical routine, I like to first gently tap the caramelized topping with the underside of my spoon (to make a strangely satisfying ‘knock knock’) before taking the plunge through the glass like topping with an almighty snap to discover the smooth custard hiding below.

    Colonial Mulled wine Shanghai recipe

    Wine in China ain’t cheap, which causes a massive dilemma because all I want to do is drink mulled wine. Thankfully, Chinese huangjiu (or yellow rice wine) comes to the rescue – it’s classed as medicinal, so it’s technically good for you. Winner!
