International Women’s Day 2020

2020-04-30T10:31:16+01:00

It’s amazing when women come together to achieve a shared goal --the impact is contagious. International Women's Day 2020 will be celebrated on the 8th of March. International Women’s Day is about celebrating the progress of social, cultural, economic and political achievements for all women in all walks of life. And in seeing so many advancements that have taken place, there is still so much that needs to change to help women do more and contribute more to the world. Women need to support other women, be ambitious for change and see the bigger picture. This year’s theme for International Women’s [...]

Hints of Spring

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

The weekend brings us an extra day in this leap year. Perhaps an extra day to do taxes, or an extra day to take it easy! Either way, it's comforting to see a few hints of Spring as the blossoms are beginning to show. A celebration such as Easter is one of a new chapter in the year. We’ve endured a long winter so now we can feel free to come out into the world, just like those spring blossoms.  At Naturally Chinese, we’ve been moving in full swing with our feasts of Spring; a Detox menu and other celebration menus.

Organic, free range and better

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

In a market place today we don’t always know whether we are eating farmed or free range, organic or not. You can now relax with us in the knowledge that we are serving you the healthy options. We also believe that supporting local farmers who take great pains to produce these valuable goods and services will help them deliver better products. For if the demand for them increases, we all win. There is no price or cost one should put on health. The baby steps we take now to ensure we are putting the best food in our bodies will reap [...]

The Taste of Gluten Free Cooking

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

The taste of gluten free cooking is evolving in a sophisticated way thereby making it very appealing and appetising to the taste buds. When we decided to have gluten free Chinese food on the menu, the choice wasn’t hard although it was a combined and involved effort to make sure a smooth process was followed. But it also gave us a clear sense of why additives and MSG were not necessary in our cooking. With a little extra diligence and knowledge, our team has adapted to a new way of serving Chinese food. It is of course an option when one [...]

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

Like any art, it takes years of practice to cultivate a mode, a pattern, a personal touch that makes the cooking unique. 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. [...]
