Matcha green tea layer cake with mascarpone cream

Matcha green tea layer cake with mascarpone cream

This post was written in collaboration with Kitchenaid One of the things we loved most about Japan was the matcha flavoured… well, everything. From chocolate and desserts to noodles and coffee, there’s nothing the Japanese can’t turn that pretty shade of matcha green. Indeed, so ubiquitous was the verdant powder that we formed a little […] Read more…

Bunny Chow recipe

Bunny Chow Down

Bunny chow. No, it’s not snack food for rabbits. Nor are the cotton-tailed cuties an ingredient. In fact the South African street food has absolutely nothing to do with bunnies of the fluffy variety. Bunny Chow is essentially a half a loaf of white bread with the inside scooped out and then stuffed full of curry that first gained […] Read more…

Poh Ling Yeow's recipe for Mr Ping's Pork Noodles

Mr Ping’s Pork Noodles with Poh and Po

Once upon a time there was a small martial arts obsessed panda boy who couldn’t stop eating… he ate and ate, practised some kung fu and then he ate some more. So it should come as no surprise that the Kung Fu Panda movies are that very same boy’s favourites, and not only because they’re brilliant movies. It’s because for Raffles, […] Read more…

Sushi secrets: The deadly dragon roll

At Casa Eats World, sushi is like oxygen. It is something we simply can’t live without and is inhaled by Raffles and Sugarpuff almost as frequently as air. Especially since our return from Japan. Their indefatigable fixation for the deceptively simple snack of rice, fish, vegetables and seaweed, means we’ve attempted making it at home […] Read more…

Indian style mango lassi smoothie

Indian Mango Lassi … like a Boss

I must confess that I’ve never been a juicer or blender, the whole green smoothie craze passing me by in a verdant vegetable-based blur. But a recent blip on my previously glowing health report card has meant a different approach to nutrition for me, at least for the foreseeable future, as I get my out […] Read more…

Sweet & Hot Chilli Pork Skewers

Hot and sweet chilli pork skewers

Mealtimes matter at Casa Eats World. In fact, if you hadn’t already noticed, we’re kind of obsessed with them. But it’s not only because we’re gluttonous. Although there’s no denying that’s a fairly major factor… You see that wasn’t always the case for me. When I was growing up my family never ate at a table. […] Read more…

Raffles filling Siu Mai

Sure-fire Siu Mai

 It’s no big secret that Raffles loves a dumpling. And when I say loves I mean with a passion equalled only by that of a seagulls for chips. In fact if eating dumplings were an Olympic sport, he’d bring home Gold. In every event. Including the relay. This is a child who considers Xiao Long Bao (pork dumplings […] Read more…

Easy cheesy fondue

Easy Cheesy Fondue

The first and last time I ate fondue was in Switzerland. I was in my twenties, swanning around lovely Lake Lucerne with my now ex-husband. He annoyed me. I stabbed him with a fondue fork. The rest, as they say, is history. While the company was dubious at best, the fondue was superb. So much […] Read more…

The look on this face says it all - At Salty Rooster Manly

Raffles reviews: Salty Rooster Manly

As you might guess from the name, Salty Rooster is all about chicken burgers but chicken burgers that will take your tastebuds all over the world. My first visit was a […] Read more…
