Green Tea Cheesecake by Diep Tran

Nothing is better than having a cup of coffee with Green tea cheesecake and listening to Jazz music after a long working day. The taste of Green Tea and Cheese go very well with coffee that is what I don’t want to miss every afternoon. Last week while one of my friend who I haven’t seen for a while and I were enjoying the cake and coffee and she asked me to take some photos of the scene and this is one of them.

The Taste of Asian Cuisine by Diep Tran

One of the dishes I really love from my mon is Fish cooked in a clay pot. Although the ingredient is very simple: fish sauce, oil, pepper, palm sugar and chilli if desired, but it is the tastiest food in Asian Cuisine. For our family, this dish is always the best choice and never be missed on the list of the winter’s menu.

Coconut Milk with Chia Seed by Diep Tran

I learnt the recipe for this dessert from a food magazine. I totally fell in love with it after the first try. Fresh coconut milk, Chia seeds and any fruit you add will give the food more flavour. I made this dessert again for my sister’s birthday and red dragon fruit gave the food not only more flavour but also the elegant look.
