There are some classic recipes that never seem to get old. They continue to be as popular today as the day they were created. The smell that permeates through the house when baking these classics trigger those child-hood memories of visiting Nanna after school or weekends. Welcomed with a warm yet deliciate hug, a feeling of uncondtional love and a sense of home. Always a freshly baked cake, biscuits or slice on the kitchen bench just incase visitors pop around for a visit. Its amazing how smells connect us with deep emotions and memories something we take a little for granted now a days. As that saying goes we need to stop and smell the roses. Appreciate the little things in life.
Pad Thai is one of the most well-known Thai dishes in Australia and around the world even scoring the title of one of the most ordered takeaway dishes back in 2014. It’s tasty, not too spicy yet still packed with flavour it is easier to see why it has become so popular.
I was first introduced to this dish when my husband and I went on a trip to Japan. Before this trip my husband wasn’t much of a Japanese food eater this was 9 years ago, now we enjoy almost every week. We were also interested in the historic culture Japan so proudly exuded. The friendliness and politeness of the locals made our way around the predominantly non english speaking, ever so populated country much easier and enjoyable. Yet another reason we fell in love with Japan.
Italian food is still so dear to my heart. I love the taste and flavours but mostly I love the stories, memories and family comforts it brings. I grew up with my Nonnas cooking the Italian favourites whenever we would go to visit and as we get older the nostalgia becomes so much more important. It resonates with more than just eating, if you have ever had the pleasure of eating at an Italian family feast you will know exactly what I mean.
