Healthy Cooking & Living Class by Culinary Capers

First of all, a special thanks to Ms Geeta Jayabalan for the invitation to her cooking class on last Wednesday.

A short intro about her and the company.
She set up this company called Culinary Capers and she has been teaching since 1994 after giving up her legal practice.

Since 1994 Culinary Capers has been doing many different activities all related to culinary pursuits. 
Just to give a few examples:
- culinary team building programmes for corporate companies as part of their human resource training
- working  with travel,  convention & event management companies to organise market tours, & cooking lessons for tourist groups, spouse cooking programmes for MICE conference delegates at her place.

However she's now seeking to bring Culinary Capers to a different level.

Malaysian food is great but we cannot deny that it is not the healthiest of food & the fact that we are the most obese country in South East Asia is testimony to that fact. She's very much into health food & food combinations for a healthy lifestyle she has devised ways of eating where she thought she can still have all her favourite foods but not put on the extra pounds and it is this message which she wants to convey to people in Malaysia & globally as well.
In that connection she has come up with a new concept of cooking called Healthy Cooking & Living.

So here's the class.

Ms Geeta in class.

 The menu of the day:
Starter : Muhammara (Roasted Red pepper Spread with Crispy Lavash Bread)

Salad 1 : Quinoa, Sprouted Grains & Mixed Veg Salad

Salad 2 : Mesclun Greens with Gingerflower, Mint & Peanuts served with Thai dressing
 
Mains : Spicy Ciliantro steamed Lemon Sole in Banana Leaf

Basmathi ( Long Grained ) Spinach & Spring Onion Rice


Dessert : Buckwheat & Quinoa Crepe with Caramelised Bananas in Cinnamon Sauce 

 Muhammara.
It was a superb starter or snack. The spread was so yummy, I personally think that it's a good alternative for salsa dip.

Setting The Table, Insadong

Back to Seoul food again.

Here's one nice restaurant tucked away in a small alley in Insadong.
You will never noticed its existence if you only walk on the main road.

We were looking for a place for our late lunch (if not mistaken, it was around 3pm already).
We saw this nice looking dining outlet, and also a little bit surprise that a restaurant like that is still opened at that hour.
 Nice illustration on the wall.

TiPsy Brew O'Coffee, Setia Walk

Well, mention about Puchong will immediately make me think of the traffic condition, restaurants and traffic, again.

But now with Setia Walk -another popular hangout spot soon, especially during happy hour. More and more offices and restaurants coming in already.

One of them being Tipsy Brew O' Coffee.
It's just right next to a ramen shop.


 They serve Illy coffee. Hand drip and siphon coffee is available too.

Be Lohas .Healthy Cuisine, Damansara Utama

We've never been to Be Lohas in Damansara Uptown although it's not too far away.
Actually I was to come twice with friends, but too bad they close quite early, at about 8.30pm.
By the time we managed to reach there after work was already too late. 

So this time we 3 sisters were here after coming back to PJ from hometown, and it's time for lunch.

 We were served with soup of the day and also Chlorella tablets to eat before meal.
That's my hot black sesame drink on the left.

Multigrain bun from Tesco


I visited Tesco in Mutiara Damansara after its renovation a few months back.
I browsed through their bakery section and found out there's some 'upgrading work' done. :)

They are now serve not only the normal potato bun or white bread loaf or tuna bun already.
I found multigrain buns in pack.

It looks good~

And it tasted good too.
But one thing is there's no ingredient list for some of the bread, including this one.
I'm quite particular in this matter (so that I know what I consume), so I hope they do something on this soon.
