We are back in Melbourne for Christmas! One of the first items on our Aussie to-do list was to visit the Queen Victoria Market. We couldn’t walk past this amazing cauliflower.
We love veggies and fruits, so wandering through the Queen Victoria Market takes us a couple of hours – there is so much amazingly fresh produce available and so many vendors. You can shop around for the best taste or price. Everything is fresh. There aren’t as many exotic or tropical fruits and veggies (although we did find some dragonfruit) – we always look forward to those in Singapore – however there were still some things we hadn’t seen before… Continue reading →
When we’re wandering through the grocery store here in Singapore we ALWAYS go through the fruit section to see if there’s any different tropical fruit in season. Recently we have really been enjoying custard apples. Wait and see the recipe we came up with!
Happy New Year! Did you have a wonderful holiday break? We did too!
We thought we would begin our posts for 2013 with our first trip to the grocery store upon returning to Singapore. We found a very impressive vegetable – one that we had never seen on the shelf before – albeit an unlabeled one. We didn’t know what it was called but we bought it anyway. Can you guess what it is?
We are very proud of ourselves at Dancing Greenly – we happen to have found a perfect sweet treat for Halloween!
It is called halo-halo (like ‘hello’ but with an ‘a’). It is a traditional dessert originating from the Philippines. We first tried it when we were in Manila performing on tour. We attended a big welcome party with lots of traditional dishes, and Halo-halo was our favourite. It is another southeast Asian food discovery that we really want to share. Continue reading →
You really should! This is Jicama, one of our absolute favourite vegetables – we always have one in the fridge… and most people don’t know even what it is! It is refreshing, crunchy, slightly sweet, and easy to prepare… you have to try it!
It has been really exciting for us to live in Singapore. When we go to the supermarket there are so many different fruits and vegetables for us to try. Some we know in the US and Australia in their preserved forms (water chestnuts and bamboo shoots) and others are completely foreign to us.
It’s always an adventure to try these new things and the latest ingredients to grace our plates are lotus root and burdock root. Continue reading →
We want to grow things – and eat things – and get excited about planning our future food forest. The humble banana seems so common, but this unique giant herb has caught our interest… mainly because we have discovered that in a few decades it may no longer exist.
