Asian Inspired

This post is an ode to my favourite Asian inspired dishes to make at home!Untitled If you follow me on instagram you know that last night I made a Japanese feast for John and I.

I had never made John sushi and decided this had to change!  I've been making sushi for friends for years and it's such a treat to enjoy at home.  It's time consuming, but it's beautiful, therapeutic, and everyone always appreciates it so much.  I know I'll be making it for my family and friends in France soon!

As I rolled together nori sheets stuffed with sushi rice, salmon, ginger, mango, avocado and cucumber, I realized how much I need to bring back Asian flavours to my ktichen.

Growing up in Vancouver I was raised on sushi, Japanese curry, teriyaki and Chinese food.  I always crave these familiar tastes and have come up with some fun Asian inspired dishes while living in Toronto over the years.

Here are some of my favourites:
