Kimchi Fried Rice

Kim Kimchi Fried Rice/Quinoa with Chinese sausage and Grilled Asparagus wrapped in thick-cut Bacon. Dinner is served

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Something very eye pleasing about the candy cane-like stripes of the bacon wrapped around the asparagus. Now to go right under the broiler of my toaster oven. My counter top toaster oven often doubles as my salamander oven for quick and easy grilling while using a cast iron pan. Works well and saves energy, not having to heat up a whole oven.

Note: only about 1/4 of the asparagus are wrapped, there is a layer of them below which will catch the flavour and fat drippings from the layer above

dashoffood is getting a boost of inspiration from my lovely and talented friend @berryshine . I cooked a family classic passed down from my dad to me by osmosis for her lovely project to empower herself to grow her blog and photography passions. We both took turns with food styling and learning from one another. Thank you Tracy for engaging me and inspiring me! xo..vancouver igersvancouver vancouver inmemory chickenmushroom rice homecooking faitavecamour madewithlove pnw familylove ingredients ginger heritage familyrecipe myrecipe cookbook cook miseenplace instafood ilovefood food chicken hakka hakkafood foodporn foodlover foodpic foodphotography foodporn foodculture

Part of what I love about food is the cultural ethnography that comes along with it. My close friends sometimes bring me small food items from their travels and I absolutely adore it. I get to take a peek into another culture and what they eat, why and where it derived from. Here a spice and nut accoutrement from a region where a famous opera singer is from or resides and a very Aussie item, a premade pavlova mixture which kind of blew my mind. The instant upon receiving my mind raced with questions, how did this come about, why is it necessary and would it be worth the minutes saves from having to beat the egg whites? I’m saving this for a rainy day to experiment with and research more about its existence, it will be a fun day ?Should any of you have knowledge about these two items, share with me please ?
