Are you a lover of Asian food and its subtle flavours?

Then keep on reading because today I want to tell you about Andaliman pepper, also known as Batak Berry, a much loved condiment from Indonesia, which I discovered a few months ago and I now cannot live with!


Andaliman pepper boasts delightful citrus and fruity flavours that perfume any dish beautifully and give it that “Asian twist” I’ve been looking for for so long but couldn’t get right. It’s as exotic as the Chinese Szechuan pepper but a lot less numbing and therefore it can safely be added to dishes while being sure the results will be flavourful yet subtle!

Andaliman pepper can be used in so many different ways too… crushed and sprinkled on food, in marinades, sauces and curries and is ideal to beautify fish, seafood and poultry dishes.

No need to say Batak berries have brought extra flavours to my kitchen and will continue to do so for a long time as I cannot get tired of this wonderful taste, however there is one dish that this exotic pepper has completely changed for me and as simple as it seems… it is rice!

As an Asian food lover, I’ve tried so many times to re-create the unique flavours of rice I had tried while traveling or at my local Thai restaurant but I could never get it right. I added lemongrass, ginger, coconut milk but something was still missing until I discovered Andaliman pepper!

So let me give you my recipe for a flavourful rice that you can enjoy with many dishes or on its own as it’s just so tasty!

I also want to apologize if you’re from anywhere in Asia and think this recipe doesn’t come close to your rich culinary traditions and that “Asian food’ doesn’t mean much as each country has its specialities (I fully agree!) but my only intention is to share my love for food and flavours!

Ingredients for 2 to 4 portions

  • 200 g of Basmati or Thai jasmine rice
  • 375 ml of water
  • 2 table spoons of coconut oil
  • 1 stem of lemongrass, outer leaves removed, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed Batak berries/Andaliman pepper
  • A pinch of salt

Chop the lemongrass and ginger and crush the Batak berries in a mortar. Place the rice into a colander and rinse 2 to 3 times then reserve.

Pour the coconut oil into a large pot over medium to high heat then add the rice and let it cook for half a minute until the grains turn a more solid white colour. Stir to keep the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Add the chopped lemongrass, ginger, crushed Batak berries and salt to the pot and stir then add the water and place a lid on top of your pot.

Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a gentle simmer and let cook for 15 minutes without lifting the lid. When the time is over, turn the heat off and keep the lid on for another 10 minutes.

Serve and enjoy that fragrant rice!

More recipes with Batak Berry are coming soon on this blog… so stay tuned and try to get your hand on this beautiful condiment… maybe here (US), here (UK) or here (CH)

All-Natural Hair Care!

Posted by Corine. 

I love pampering my hair and I do not mind spending a bit of money on good hair products to keep them healthy but it sometimes feels a bit silly and pointless considering all the DIY goodness I can come up with by simply stepping in to my kitchen. So here is a few natural tricks that never fail to give my locks a boost!

1 . If you do not fancy eating that overripe avocado forgotten at the bottom of the fridge , simply turn it in to an hair mask! All you need to add is 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 table spoon of coconut oil. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and apply to your hair from the ends to the roots. Let it sit for 15-20 mins before rinsing thoroughly. Not only you will avoid food waste but you will also restore shine in your hair, repair damages, add moisture and fight frizzes!

applevinegar biona2 . Apple cider vinegar is a great natural product that can be used every other week to remove residue from product buildup and pollution from your hair. The acetic acid cleanses the hair without stripping natural oils and also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties which help with flaky and itchy scalps. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with one cup of water and douche your hair with the mixture after your regular shampoo. Rinse thoroughly with clear water and finish with your conditioner. You will be left with lustrous and shiny locks! You can find apple cider vinegar in your local shops or online but always make sure to buy a quality product that is unpasteurised, unfiltered and with the mother (the cloudy floating web-like substance which contains a bunch of beneficial bacterias and acids).

3 . Use coconut oil as a leave in conditioner to keep your hair nourished and healthy looking all day long. Make sure to only use organic virgin coconut oil that won’t leave any residue on your  precious locks… plus a good quality oil will not leave a weird smell on your hair!

There are a few vegetal oils that provides a natural UV protection but I personally like to go for the most effective one which is red raspberry seed oil. It is quite pricey but this oil has a natural SPF of between 28 and 50 which is huge compared to avocado or coconut oils which only contain a SPF of 2 to 3! A little goes a long way and it is multi-purpose as red raspberry seed oil is also an excellent anti-oxidant and nurturing product for the skin… so well worth the money!

Botanical Beauty – Red Raspberry Seed Oil – £13.50 for 30ml on Amazon. 

5 . Let you hair dry naturally whenever you can! The weekend is the perfect occasion for me not to use my hairdryer and give my hair a break from the damaging high heat.  If your hair are more wild than mine and blowdrying is a necessity, try to limit the blow dry time and use the coolest setting on your hair dryer as much as you can.

It’s summer time in Europe and what better way to enjoy the warm weather than what we call “l’appéro” in France, a special moment before dinner where everybody is sipping on a drink and feasting on tasty snacks.

As enjoyable as it is, l’appéro is not the healthiest eating habit as it often involves caloric drinks and food – hello spritz and crisps!

So today I want to give you a skinny beetroot mousse recipe that is extremely easy and quick to prepare (no more than 2 minutes!) while being a healthier snacking option than pretzels, cheese biscuits or charcuterie! It’s also a stylish “amuse-bouche” that will add some colour to your aperitif and change from the usual carrot and celery sticks.


  • Cooked beetroots
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cucumber

Dice the beetroot in cubes, add the grapeseed oil and balsamic vinegar (approximately one table spoon per beetroot), the salt and pepper and blend until you obtain a creamy texture, then pour it in shot glasses.

Dice some cucumber in small cubes (or slice it) and place on top of your beetroot mousse, add some pepper and serve very cold.

Tip: For a creamier and more savoury snack, you can add goat’s cheese to your preparation and sprinkle goat’s cheese and pistachios crumbles on top of your mousse.

Thank you for reading and bon appétit!

Last week, my boyfriend had one of those difficult days at work and I could feel is frustration and disappointment as we exchanged a few messages on WhatsApp during his lunch break. He had spent hours in counter-productive meetings with people going back on their promises and he just felt like all the hard work he had done over the past few weeks was pointless and leading nowhere. Pretty depressing feeling everyone who as ever mingle with the corporate world knows too well!

I really wanted to do something to help him feel better but wasn’t sure what could brighten up his day until I told him I was going to cook him French crêpes for dinner. A simple suggestion that came to my mind out of nowhere but that worked wonder! His mood completely turned from sadness to excitation, just like a kid who got told he was going on holiday at Disneyland!

I know he loves French crêpes but I didn’t expect him to react this positively however when I think about it, it makes total sense! In France, sugary crêpes are associated with childhood, celebration and rewarding good behaviour. Kids love the taste and smell of crêpes and love even more to fill their crêpes with the sugary condiments and jams of their choice – chocolate paste is always THE favourite though!

So today I want to give you a very simple recipe for sugary French crêpes so you can too delight and/or lift the mood of your loved ones when they are in need of some TLC.

Ingredients for 18 medium sized crêpes

  • 100 g of plain flour
  • 2 table spoons of cornstarch
  • 2 table spoons of casted sugar
  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
  • 1 sachet of baking powder
  • 2 table spoons of sunflower oil (use a tasteless oil)
  • 60 g of unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 glasses of water or semi-skimmed milk
  • A pinch of salt

In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch and baking powder.

Form a hole in the middle of the bowl and add the salt, oil, casted and vanilla sugar and the eggs.

Pour a small quantity of water or milk on top and gently incorporate the flour, cornstarch and baking powder to the other ingredients using the tips of your fingers. Keep adding water or milk in small quantities until the preparation is smooth and liquid enough to be poured in a pan – the preparation should be quite liquid as French crêpes should be very thin, contrary to pancakes!


Cover the bowl with a towel and reserve for one to two hours.

Heat a frying pan (there are pans specially made for this purpose but the thinner it is, the better) and add a small knob of butter. When hot, pour some of the preparation into the pan making sure it covers the entire surface in a thin layer (remember the thinner, the better!)


Using a spatula, gently lift your crêpe to check if it looks nice and golden on the down side then flip it over to cook the other side.

Add a small knob of butter to your frying pan between each crêpe.

Serve your crêpes hot and offer a selection of sugary condiments to your guests such as

  • Chocolate paste
  • Jams
  • Caster sugar and lemon juice
  • Salted butter and caramel
  • Freshly cut fruits (kiwi fruit, orange, apple, banana)
  • Mapple syrup

Tip: You can replace the baking powder + water or milk by two glasses of bier!

Thank you for reading and Bon Appétit!

Morning bath meditation…

Posted by Corine. 

Work and life in general can be a great source of stress and the problem with stress is that it sticks to you until you take action to kick it out of your system! Yoga classes, breathing exercises and night time meditations just won’t do it when you wake up in the morning and realise you have to deal with a long day at work filled with crap and stress… buckets loads of stress! So before the feeling becomes too overwhleming and you still have a clear and rested mind, try following these few simple steps to start your day the best way possible.

  • Set you alarm 10 minutes earlier than usual as you do not want to have to rush to get out of the door… we are trying to start the day stress free after all!
  • Run yourself a warm bath and close the bathroom door so the room gets warm. (Sort out your outfit for the day or set up the breakfast table while you wait for the bathtub to fill up to save yourself time)
  • Soak in the warm bath for 5-10 minutes surrounded by silence (if at all possible!)
  • Breathing slowly and fully, focus your mind on the sensation of your body floating and your muscle relaxing in the warm water.

Beginning the day with a few minutes to wake up my mind and my body in a gentle way and in a relaxed and non-rushed environment has become an important part of my morning routine and it really helps me to tackle the day ahead!

For further relaxation and muscle relief, I like to add Epsom Salt to the water. It breaks down into magnesium and sulphate which are believed to get into your body through your skin to help relax and soothe muscles and loosen stiff joints. Westlab Pure Mineral Bathing offers a range of salts that treat aching muscles, itchy skin, etc. They are available at Boots at £2.49 for 1KG bag.

Essential OilsAlso make the most of aromatherapy by adding essential oils to your bath so you can inhale the oils that evaporates in the warm bath water. Only choose essential oils that are gentle on the skin like lavender (Lavandula anguvstifolia) or roman chamomile (Chamaemelum mobile). The essential oil of your choice should be mixed with a blending oil before it is added to the water (5 drops of essential oil to a tablespoon of carrier oil). Tisserand Aromatherapy have a great range of quality essentials oils and organic blending oil on their website. Essential oils are a powerful remedy for many ailments  so make the most of them by carefully researching which one suits your needs and always respect the label instructions and general guidelines.

Tips to ease your fear of the dentist

Posted by Carole

Can you feel your jaws tightening when you hear the word “dentist”? Like most people the thought of visiting your dentist is making you nervous to a point you only go when it’s absolutely necessary – read when it bloody hurts and you have no choice but to go!

That’s what happened to me recently as I kept saying to myself that strange feeling I had in my tooth was nothing more that gum sensitivity and would go away on its own. Of course it didn’t and I ended up needing a root canal treatment, which got me to endure three long sessions with my dentist to date and dread the next two appointments that the helpful assistant has scheduled in for me.

The funny thing is that I had never been that afraid of the dentist and had always been quite good at getting regular check-ups and – I admit it – I didn’t understand people who were too scared to even book an appointment but I now realize it is because I’d never had any invasive work done to my teeth and I now fully sympathize with those terrified by the idea of setting a foot in a dental surgery.

And even though my dentist is very competent and doing her best to treat my tooth as painlessly as possible, I shiver every time I sit on the dental chair and could even cry a little if I wasn’t afraid to be judged… so today I wanted to go through a few tips that I tried to ease my fear of the dentist and the pain associated with the treatment, that might be useful for you too!

1. Take a painkiller just before your dentist appointment as it will diminish the pain you will feel during and right after the treatment HOWEVER do not take aspirin or any medicines containing aspirin as it will prevent clotting in case of bleeding. It might seem like an obvious thing to do but I never thought about it until one day, I saw my dad swallow paracetamol tablets prior to his dentist appointment and asked him if he was in pain. He matter-of-factly answered to me that he wasn’t yet but that he would certainly be later on so this was prevention. I thought it was smart and now never fail to take a painkiller before a dental appointment.

2. If your dentist doesn’t offer, don’t be afraid to ask for numbing gel or even bring your own and apply it, with clean fingers, to your gums before the treatment starts. Numbing gel can be bought in any pharmacy where it’s generally sold to appease gum irritations or small wounds in the mouth. My dentist seems to think I don’t need numbing before she injects my gum with anaesthetic, I truly disagree and always bring numbing gel with me.

3. Natural plant-based relaxing remedies such as infusions, drops or pastilles can help you relax your mind and body and endure your dental treatment with more serenity. The more relaxed you are, the less traumatizing the experience will be, plus relaxed jaws will help prevent muscle tensions and aches post-treatment. Rescue Remedy from Bach Flower is a great option as it offers a wide range of products including spray, drops, pastilles that are relatively efficient and easy to carry and ingest, wherever you are.

4. Listen to music before your appointment, especially in the waiting room. Be discreet and make sure to keep the volume down not to disturb other patients but this will help you to keep your mind focused on something else than dental surgery noises (thinking about that horrible drilling sound…). You can also ask your dentist if you can keep one earphone in during the treatment so you can still hear his/her instructions while being distracted and relaxed by your favourite music. I’ve only tried music so far but I’ve heard of many people listening to funny podcasts or audio books and it seems to work wonder!

5. Close your eyes or wear dark sunglasses during your treatment so you won’t have to see everything that is going on. I personally like to close my eyes as I know that I’m more likely to anticipate the pain of a needle when I see one. Sometimes ignorance is bliss! On the other hand, some people find re-assuring to see and be aware of everything that is happening and if it’s your case, you should ask your dentist to tell you what he/she is doing step-by-step.

6. Before the treatment starts, it’s important to ask your dentist to explain to you what he/she is going to do and roughly how long it will take. You don’t need to know about the gritty – and gory – details but understanding why you’re going through that ordeal will help you to consider the benefits and cope with the stress and pain better.

One last yet very obvious tip is to get checked-up regularly but also to consult your dentist as soon as you feel pain in your teeth/gums or even some kind of sensitivity. The earlier you go, the less invasive the treatment will be. A filling is much quicker and painless than a root canal or, worse, a tooth extraction and I wish I had addressed the issue I had with my tooth a lot earlier than I did as my problem would have been resolved in one appointment by a simple filling.

I hope these few tips will help a little if you’re planning a visit to the dentist soon, there is no miracle solution but every little help is welcome when it comes to anything dentist related. Stay strong!

Quinoa Salad lunch to get you going until dinner

Posted by Carole

Summer is definitely here (yes!!) and the heat makes you crave for a light and fresh salad for lunch… the only problem is that a salad might leave you starving by 4pm!

That’s why today, I want to give you a Quinoa Salad recipe I’m eating on a regular basis, which, on top of being super easy to prepare and a delight for the taste buds, is also very nutritious and should get you going until dinner… and serenely stay away from not-so-healthy late-afternoon snacks.

And it’s all thanks to quinoa; a “king ingredient” high in protein and fiber, packed with nutrients that are good for you (iron, magnesium, manganese to name a few) but with a low glycemic index helping your metabolism to stay up and running for a while.


  • One portion of cooked quinoa
  • Coconut oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Soy sauce
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh Basil
  • Spirulina or curcuma powder
  • Roasted sesame grains or roasted sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper

Pour the quinoa (previously cooked) in a large mixing bowl.

Add a table spoon of coconut oil and stir well then add approximately 4 table spoons of lemon juice, 1 table spoon of soy sauce, 2 table spoons of balsamic vinegar, a pinch of salt and pepper and stir.

Add 2 tea spoons of spirulina or curcuma powder (depending on your mood and needs) to the quinoa and stir well once again. Reserve.

Wash and halve the cherry tomatoes, slice some fresh basil and sprinkle on top of the tomatoes along with a tea spoon of balsamic vinegar and a pinch of sea salt, mix the all with your fingers directly on your chopping board.

Plate your quinoa and add the seasoned tomatoes on top, sprinkle a few grains of roasted sesame on your dish (or a few drops of roasted sesame oil if you don’t have grains) and serve!

Tip: You can incorporate avocado, beetroot or celery to your quinoa salad, the possibilities are countless!

I also like to sprinkle freshly chopped ginger to my dish to add a little kick and additional freshness.

Bon appétit!

June Beauty Favourites…

Posted by Corine. 


Thick & Fast Super Volume Mascara by Soap & Glory (£10 at Boots)

I have been loving this mascara so much and I regret not buying it before due to the slightly negative reviews online. I guess it does not work for everyone as some girls would like it to be more heavy duty but it really does the job for me as my lashes are naturally quite long so less is best! The brush is quite basic and could definitely be improved but a few layers really gives me a glamorous, but natural, false lashes finish and separate my lashes amazingly. I love the result so badly that it is all I have been wearing on my eyes this month!


Natural Bamboo Charcoal Face Oil Blotting Paper by Pleasing Care (£6.95 on Amazon)

This product is a best-seller on Amazon and I totally get why! Unless other brands I have tested in the past, these excess oil absorbing sheets are larger than most allowing a full face touch-up with one sheet without a problem which is great if you are an oily lady like me! The best part for me is that the sheets do not leave a powdery residue on the skin… an essential requirement as I want to fix my shiny face without having to add any more powder and avoid the caky look that comes with it! The packaging is also super convenient and cute… it says “Hello, Pretty You” inside which is a sweet way to lift up your moods and make you feel better about that shiny oily face in the mirror!


opi-infinite-shine-fiji-collection-fullsetOPI Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer (£13.95 each on opiuk.com)

The Infinite Shine collection is stunning and offers a truly amazing range of colours! As it says on the tin, the gel-like shine lasts for a week without a problem and so does your nail polish! There is no touch ups needed for a whole full week. If you are wearing it on gel nail extensions like me, you can easily go three weeks with a vibrant and stunning colour. I am so impressed with the Infinite Shine range and I wish I could own all of these sumptuous colours!





Gentle Skin Cleanser by Cetaphil (£8.99 for 236ml at Superdrug)

Last but not least, the best products are the ones that make you feel good about yourself… well this one definitely does as it has helped my itchy skin so much during this warm weather! This super gentle face and body cleanser is non-irritating but still removes dirt and impurities. I use it to remove my make-up in combination with an eye make-up remover and it does the job without leaving my skin feeling dry and tight. I also love that its compact format allows me to take it with me on holiday unlike similar products which comes in massive bottles!

Leaving London… ?!

Posted by Corine.

It is so hard to leave something or someone you love behind even when you know it is for the best… isn’t it? Well this is exactly how I feel about leaving London! I love this city  to bits and I am so proud that it has been my home for almost 10 years, plus there are many people here that I love just as much and who make this place even more special… but I have come to a stage in my life where I am trying to listen to that little voice in my head that is begging for less stress and a life closer to nature. London is such a fantastic place to live, especially in your twenties, but there comes a time where the rat race gets a bit too much as, let’s be honest, this city likes to throw many obstacles at you and everyone here is as driven and ambitious as you are so it sometimes feels like a constant fight to come out on top! Also you can’t really buy, you can’t really have a car, you can’t really have kids, you can’t really have a pet, you can’t really this, you can’t really that… so why just not move out to a smaller town or go crazy and settle down in the beautiful British countryside?! Well, it is not that easy but I think that I am getting there and I have come up with a few tips to make the right decision…

  • I am talking about my plans to as many people as possible! Some friends and colleagues actually have had similar thoughts and they have done their own research so why not take advantage of that!?
  • It is also important to talk to family, friends or acquaintances who have already taken the plunge. These people survived leaving the city so why not ask them how they are coping with their new life? It helps me get a better picture of how life is going to be like and have real expectations.
  • My husband and I now have a shorlist of some possible cities so the next step for us is to book ourselves train/plane tickets and spend some time in those places. It goes without saying but visiting and spending some time in your potential future city is a must! I know Google Earth is cool and all that but there is nothing like seeing a new place with your own eyes!
  • Also I believe it is primordial to research the job opportunities. Sadly it all comes down to surviving and making a living so I don’t want to fool myself by thinking that I will have as many job opportunities as I do in London so research is key here to avoid bad surprises…
  • In light of the above we made sure to save some money before even considering mooving! Having savings to live on for a little while will definitely make the transition into our new life easier and lower the stress levels!
  • Not rushing! I have accepted that it is a long process and that it is OK to come back on some of my initial decisions. I have drafted my list of pros and cons a while ago and I come back to it now and then… and it is really interesting to see how my views have changed over time!

Following my own advice, the hubby, our doggy and I will be visiting Chester, a lovely city in Cheshire, at the weekend and I will let you know all about it next week… Everyone keep your fingers crossed that we will like it!

Cooking From Scratch Made Easy

Posted by Carole

You know it already; banning ready-meals and cooking from scratch is the path to a healthy and glowy version of yourself but then there is reality…. and it’s easier to say ‘hey, when you come home late tonight you’ll have to wash and peel that veggies, chop and cook them and one hour later you’ll be free to finally sit down & eat and enjoy a nice moment with your loved ones… or your Netflix!” than to actually do it!

It’s true but think about it… What takes a lot of time when cooking is the preparation, namely all the washing, peeling and chopping of vegetables. Once they’re in the pan cooking you have a bit more time to yourself, only keeping an eye on the fire from time to time. And for this reason I totally understand why you wouldn’t want to go through all this when you’re exhausted or just can’t be bothered. Totally agree! I’m the same and very often cowardly simplify my meals so they don’t involve too much peeling and chopping.

But the good news is that there are some very simple tricks to help you cook from scratch on a daily basis and here they are:

  1. Freeze your veggies!


Twice a month I buy large amounts of vegetables such as peppers, carrots, zucchini, eggplants to name a few and take advantage of a quiet Sunday afternoon to prep and freeze them. It’s easily done and actually quite an enjoyable task if you put some music on and maybe enjoy a little glass of wine to help you go through the chore!

All you have to do is wash and dry your veggies, peel if required and chopped them the size that is the more convenient (slicing is usually a good option) then store them in freezing bags, making sure each bag will correspond to a portion you will need for a future meal so all you’ll have to do later in the week is to take a bag out of the freezer to defrost rather than trying to separate a frozen bloc of sliced carrots.

You can also prepare bags containing a mix of vegetables like green beans, zucchinis and eggplants so you’re ready to cook a lovely and colourful “poêllée” one evening.

I know it sounds like a very obvious thing to do but believe me it will make a difference and help you enjoy healthy veggies a lot more often but also make your meals more varied! The only thing you have to remember is to defrost a portion well in advance if you don’t have a microwave with a defrosting function.

And yes, you can buy frozen veggies in the supermarket but by preparing them yourselves you’ll make sure to opt for the healthiest, tastiest and cheapest option!

  1. Freeze your meat and fish


The same applies to meat and fish of course! You can cut, season and prepare them in advance and freeze them in convenient portions for future meals. Then it’s only a cooking job that awaits!

  1. Non-processed canned and jarred food


Non-processed canned or jarred ingredients such as corn, asparagus, chickpeas or beans are very useful ingredients you should always have in your cupboards.

They are cheap to buy, can be preserved for a long time, are relatively healthy (I insist that I’m not talking about processed and seasoned canned or jarred food of course!) and are an easy way to accompany or complete a dish.

Think about a nice tomato salad, add canned corn and jarred asparagus tips, a couple of boiled eggs and a nice vinaigrette on top and you have yourself a perfectly good and filing meal to enjoy.

  1. Quinoa, rice, pasta….


Remember that those only take a few minutes to cook and that a freshly made pasta dish is way better than a processed pasta ready-meal.

The Twinnie and I will give you some delicious yet healthy and easy to make rice and pasta recipes very soon so stay tuned!
