Spring 🌱, Mothering Sunday 💐 and New Pages 📝
March 17, 2022


I hope you're well! There's no denying that spring is in the air. The days are getting longer, the daffodils are pushing up through the ground, and the first buds are appearing on trees. Spring symbolises growth and new beginnings, and with them, the hope of better things (the weather, in particular!) to come.

With spring also comes Mothering Sunday, which is when we, here in the UK, celebrate Mother's Day. Originally a day for visiting your Mother Church, it is now a day to celebrate the mothers and mother figures in your lives.

Now let's take a look below at what's new on the site.

New on Serves 4 📰

We have recently updated our recipe for making sweet red bean paste, a key ingredient in many favourite Chinese desserts!

Personally... 📝

It's hard to believe that the Easter holidays are nearly here. We're looking forward to visiting family for the first time in nearly two and a half years! Life certainly feels like it has returned to normal, but inevitable rising covid cases, particularly in schools, are definitely disrupting the flow of things. As they say, it's the new normal.

Wishing you all peace and good health in these uncertain times.

Thank you for reading and for your support. 🙏 I hope you've enjoyed this newsletter.

Until next time! Meanwhile, keep cooking and carry on.
