1. Start by cooking your rice. Meanwhile make the sushi vinegar : In a cooking pot add vinegar, sugar and salt. Cook until almost boiled and sugar and salt are completely melted. Remove from the heat and set it aside.
2. Transfer the cooked rice into a heat-safe bowl, and pour the sushi vinegar from #1 on it. 'Slice' the rice with a rice paddle and let it cool down.
4. Spread about 180g sushi rice evenly. Leave an about 2cm edge uncovered.
5. Spread mayonnaise along the center line, as much as you want, over the rice. Place avocado, onion and salmon along that line too. Then roll up the maki tightly with a sushi rolling mat. Make 2 more sushi rolls.
6. Cut slices in the sushi roll with a clean and moistened knife. Please clean your knife before each new slice.
1. In a small cooking pot, add strawberry and sugar, cook until strawberries are soft.
2. Transfer into a safe-heat bowl and blend until smooth. Then set aside.
3. In an another bowl, add the butter (softened), and mix with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Then add the strawberry puree little by little (or else butter and puree would separate). Mix well at each addition, continue until you use it all up.
4. Add a dash of salt if you used unsalted butter. Mix. Transfer into a small cup, cover and chill in the fridge.
Enjoy with a slice of bread or anything else you like!
1.Making Genmai Wash the rice and drain it. In a frying-pan (no oil), add the rice and cook for 1~2 minutes over medium heat. Then add water (2tbsp). Keep cooking until nicely browned. Once it turns brown, then reduce the heat to low. Set aside.
2. In a cooking bowl, add flour, salt, malt powder (optional), yeast and the genmai you just made in #1. Mix well. Add water and mix with a spatula until it comes together. Cover with saran wrap and leave 15 minutes.
3. After 15 min, mix about 1 min with a spatula. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes.
4. After 15 min, mix a few times (about 20 sec). Finally cover and let rise in a warm place for a few hours or until it doubles in size.
5. Dust the work surface with a bit of flour, then put the dough on it. Split it in 2 halves. Cover and let them rest 10~15 min.
6. With the first half, using your hand, stretch the dough into a small (approximately) rectangular shape. Fold both sides length-wise over the centreline. Then fold again in the same way making sure you close the seam well (along the centreline). With the seam side down, roll the dough into a 30~35 cm long slender loaf. You can hold it vertically to help stretch it and take shape too.
7. Transfer the baguette to a floured cloth, seam side down to rest. When bough baguette doughs are done, lift up the cloth between the 2 baguettes into a pleat. It will help the dough hold its shape. Let it rise for about 40min (or more) in a warm place or until it about doubles in size (the volume increase actually depends on the temperature).
8. Pre-heat the oven to 240℃ degree.
9. Once the baguettes have risen, gently transfer them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (seam side down). Slash cut each baguette 3 or 4 times (at a 45 degree angle) along its length, using a baker's lame, razor blade or a very sharp knife.
10. Mist lightly with water and put the baguette into the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes.
11. Remove from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack.
1. In a cooking pot, heat 1 tsp vegetable oil and cook the pork. When the pork is almost cooked, add carrot, leek and shiitake. Stir-fry for a few minutes.
2. Pour the water (800ml) and bring it to a boil, adding chicken soup powder, cooking sake, soy sauce, kosher salt, oyster sauce.
3. Once it has boiled then add tofu and bring it to a boil again. Add vinegar (1 or 2 tbsp, depending on your taste). Pour the dissolved potato starch to thicken the soup. Then add the beaten eggs but don't mix them in until the eggs are cooked.
3g cream stabiliser (particularly if your cream is less than 35% fat)
10 to 15g white sugar
1. In a heat-safe cup, add butterfly pea tea and pour the boiling water. Let it sit for a few minutes and set aside.
2. In a cooking bowl, add white egg, and sugar. Mix gently (using a cooking spoon) to prevent bubbles from appearing.
3. Add milk gradually and mix. Then add sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, and mix.
4. Strain and add the tea base, using a cooking sieve. Squeeze out as much as possible : the more you squeeze, the more intensely blue the result :) Mix gently.
5. Strain the mixture with a sieve twice. Transfer into heat-safe cups. Cover with aluminium foil.
6. Bring water to a boil and set the steam tray over, using the lowest heat. Place the puddings.
(NOTE : use a medium burner not the high output one, as indicated by the red arrows in the gas stove picture) Cover and steam for 45 to 60 min. It should be wobbly but the surface should hold firm and still.
7. Cover with lids and chill in the fridge until it has set and cooled.
For the topping :
8. In a small cup, add sugar and cream stabilizer. Mix. In a cooking pot, add the heavy cream and sugar mix, and mix with a electric hand mixer until getting the texture you like.
