Food nature and wellbeing

2020-04-30T10:31:17+01:00

The beauty in nature is abundant and never short of inspiring. Just as a connection with nature is vital for our well being, so also is our connection with natural foods. The two are interconnected.  At Naturally Chinese, I follow on the ethos of keeping a connection with nature, be it in the flower pots on every table to the combination of dishes that fit well together. When a natural ingredient is used, say for instance turmeric, even the colour appeals to the eye as natural and safe as compared to a synthetic food colouring. It’s simple details such as these [...]

Feast of a special kind

2020-04-30T10:31:17+01:00

As the new year begins to gain momentum and move into the realm of resolutions and possibilities, it is also of huge benefit to keeping in mind the time for creativity and spontaneity. To commemorate Chinese new year, a feast of a special kind is an order. This is to mark a sense of renewal and celebration, and promise to do better in whatever the task may be at hand. In Chinese culture, there is no bigger festival to speak of than this momentous occasion. As a child I remember the excitement when it was time to literally sweep out the [...]

A Seasoned Palate

2020-04-30T10:31:17+01:00

Every little morsel of dim sum brought to your table has been handcrafted dexterously in a matter of seconds by a highly skilled chef. Our chefs at Naturally Chinese carry the depth and breadth of experience in culinary skills through those years of practice and experimentation. At the heart of it all, there still lies the ‘x’ factor that a chef has to trust. This is pure instinct of taste and matching the right tastes to suit the food [...]

Year of Infinite Possibilities

2020-04-30T10:31:17+01:00

  With only a couple of weeks to Chinese new year, a few tasks remain to be completed for the arrival of the year of the Rat. Therein lies the opportunity to make a renewal of some kind, to turn over a new leaf to a year of infinite possibilities.  In traditional Chinese custom, the week leading up to Chinese New Year is bustling with preparations in most Chinese families’ household. It begins with a deep clean of the house to make room for good fortune to enter. Every nook and cranny is emptied of anything redundant. All the rubbish discarded. [...]
