I’ve been doing a shirt-load of cooking since I moved back to Tassie. My standard dishes are different here, partly because I have two grown-up kiddos living with me and partly because the food supply is different here. We tend to be making a lot of things we can’t easily get locally … things like Malaysian-style Chicken Curry, Laksa, Spicy Korean-ish Chicken, Char Siu and lots of random robust curries. Our town doesn’t have an asian grocer or an Indian restaurant.
I think everyone’s cooking habits have changed over the last year because of pandemic fallout. Cooking from the pantry (to avoid shopping trips) and slow cooking seem to be super popular. And I think lots of people are trying new things, too. Branching out and getting a little bit fancier or having a crack at recipes from cultures other than their own (like me!)
So I was wondering if you’d like to talk about that? Tell me what you’re cooking and why … and maybe even share some recipe links in the comments below? I’d love that. And other readers might be SUPER glad of the inspiration too!
