I really love to cook and it's been a lovely challenge to try to create healthy meals which my comfort food loving husband will find delicious. For this I need all manner of delicious unprocessed flavour enhancers in the form of herbs, spices, garlic, chilli, ginger, lemongrass, lemon/lime juice etc....I can get all of this in the Asia supermarket and also spend days there discovering new ingredients. It is a real treasure trove for a food lover. In addition to the food diversity, the prices are pretty amazing compared to a regular supermarket where minute jars of spices and tiny bags of nuts and seeds are ridiculously overpriced.
I also bought some dried wasabi broad beans.....I love wasabi so ate these a bit too fast. They were so delicious.....but burned!! I now have totally clear sinuses.....!
