A sandwich bread with only five ingredients (eggs, coconut butter, salt, vinegar, soda), it is one of my easiest recipes. And there is absolutely no flour, believe it or not! Miraculously, it rises during baking
Roasting garlic is super-easy. Just toasting gives it a deeper yet delicate flavor. Raw garlic is crunchy, pungent, and fiery.

This easy cranberry relish takes only 3 days to ferment! Our great grandmothers always fermented cranberry sauce. They knew it would keep for a long time, and was a delicious natural probiotic to promote healthy intestinal flora. If you’re new to fermenting, it’s EASY and tastier than store-bought!

My first teenage infatuation was a young Chinese artist and family friend, Fong Yiu Lee. He painted portraits and taught us to cook authentic Cantonese dishes.
