The beauty in nature is abundant and never short of inspiring. The leaves continue to turn a warm shade of pink, to a deeper red. There are also the golden leaves that hang like large coins gracefully from the trees. 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.
Soups and hot broths are back in season. We pride ourselves on these delicious concoctions made of ginger, greens, berries and more. What they offer is a well balanced meal bringing you protein, fibres and fats all in one. And of course, a little carbohydrate to energize you if you are feeling the autumn blues.
And in appreciation of nature’s beauty, we can surround ourselves with that natural world. Plants, flowers, elements of the earth like wood, water, stone, fire — that play their part in enriching a dining experience. In doing so, we can build a closer connection with nature.
