As you can tell by now, I love Asian food. I love all aspects of Asian cuisine; cooking it, eating it, I’m content with just looking at photos of it. The harmonious blends of complimenting and contrasting flavours is what stands out the most. Regardless of what country any particular dish is from, all areas of your palate is explored. A perfect balance of sweet and savoury, mixed with subtle bitter notes and bright tart highlights is exemplified in Asian cuisine. However, there is often a stigma attached to Asian food that it’s mostly fried and fully of oil in preparation; which in all honesty is partly true. I thought there was no way around it until I was recently introduced to the Philips AirFryer that would change the way I cook Asian Food.
Let’s face it, we all love to snack. I, myself am a savoury snacker and will often chose salty treats like chips, cheese and crackers, salami, several tacos or an extra large meat lovers pizza over anything sweet when a snack attack strikes. I was recently introduced to this new line of snack crackers Bruschette Maretti. It’s described as “gourmet bites” of everyone’s favourite Italian appetizer (bruschetta) but in snack-form. They contacted me and asked how I would incorporate these tasty snacks into my daily life as a Montréal food blogger while showcasing my city at the same time. I was up for the challenge and for 12 weeks my job as a ninja was compromised for people heard my coming from a block away as I toted a crinkly bag of crackers everywhere I went!
