Lovely cake for tea-time. Luscious cheese-cream frosting with crunchy walnuts and lots of carrots and pineapple. This is a much improved version than the previous cake.

A messy meal to prepare. Cook the Japanese rice and sprinkle with 2 tablespoonful of rice vinegar when cooked. Wet hands with cold boiled water and scoop rice into your hand to shape. Fill the rice with shashimi and shape it into balls. Coat balls with benito flakes, dried seaweed and sesame seeds.

This persimmon was bought from the farmer when we were in Beijing. Everyone thought that the persimmons were juicy and sweet by the look of it. Although they were cold as it was winter at that time and no one suspected they were frost bitten.
It had to be thawed for at least 2 hours before it was edible but the texture was mushy although sweet.

Having tasted fresh seafood in Sydney, the craving for fresh seafood is inevitable even though you know that it is impossible to get cheap and fresh seafood easily here. The only way is to buy frozen ones and cook.
Defrost scallops and wash thoroughly.
Marinate lightly with Chinese wine and soya sauce.
Stir fry sambal paste, minced garlic and red chilly pieces over high fire till fragrant.
Add in scallops and quick fry for 2 mins and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of mirin sauce.
Dish up and serve
