If you aren’t familiar with milk pudding, you are missing out on a delicacy.
In times of uncertainty, it is interesting the things we turn to for reassurance of a promising tomorrow. For me, I turn to tarot cards. It sounds silly but why not try something more silly if it reassuring to the listeners. I don’t own my own set of tarot cards or know all the oracle meanings of them so I rely on other’s readings.
With lockdown in place, new cookbooks are out of reach. However, new recipes are not. I found was scrolling through Pinterest when I came across a new Japanese recipe, Enoki Beef Rolls.
