Delicious Japanese food at Raku

Raku Japanese Restaurant

Japanese food is one of my favourite cuisines but it wasn’t until I visited Japan in 2016 that I knew just how good Japanese food can be. It’s hard to find Japanese food as good as the food I ate in Japan…. My first memory of eating Japanese food is when my mum would cook tempura for my sisters and I when we were kids. If it was one thing we didn’t go without when we were growing up, it was amazing food. My mum is an incredible cook!

Summer coconut and mango cake

Eat Canberra

I have a confession to make – I’m not really a big fan of the traditional Christmas fare.

While I absolutely love summer and Christmas, for the most part, I could happily forgo the mince pies, cold ham and roast turkey. My preference, this time of year, is for fresh, light and summery flavours. Continue reading Summer coconut and mango cake
