Japanese Milk Bread

While the rest of the world has been busy baking sourdough bread, I have been busy perfecting my milk bread recipes. Of course, there are days when a crusty loaf of sourdough is exactly what I want (especially for my toast with avocado!), but most days, it’s the soft and squishy milk bread that I crave the most.

Alpine Food

I often think the best part of skiing is the food. It’s the only part of the ski routine that is familiar to me, and the only time during the ski outing that I get to warm up (hint: I don’t ski fast enough to break a sweat!).

Quite often when I am trying to negotiate a steep, icy slope, the only thing that will see me through to the finish line is the thought of a hot meal at the end of that run. Whether it’s a steaming bowl of Pearl Barley Soup, a hearty Raclette or Cheese Fondue, my favourite Swiss Mac & Cheese or a classic Chicken Schnitzel, I look forward to all of the alpine dishes.

Homemade Mayonnaise

One recipe which is always handy to have up your sleeve is a Homemade Mayonnaise. While it is easy to buy a jar or tube of ready-made mayonnaise, there are times when it is best to have the real thing on hand.

For example, if a mayonnaise serves as a basis of a sauce or dressing for your dish – such as with my Scotch Eggs – making a mayonnaise from scratch will make the whole dish even more special.

Why This Recipe Works

  • Make a Homemade Mayonnaise with just a few ingredients from your fridge and pantry.
  • Adjust the mayonnaise to your liking, whether you like it tangy, salty or even with a touch of sweetness.
  • Use a food processor or an electric whisk for a foolproof mayonnaise.
  • Add other flavourings to your mayonnaise, such as fresh herbs.
