Heya beautiful hive souls. I know.... it has been a while since you’ve heard from me but it has been super busy in our little bakery with the postponed celebrations of the Khmer New Year.

I hope you are all well and corona isn’t causing too many issues. Here in Cambodia, it is easy to forget what is going on in the rest of the world. We have never been in lockdown or no real measures have been taken as we don’t seem to have many infections.

The country itself seems to be corona free. Everybody coming in needs to do a test, when positive everybody on the plane, or people they traveled with, need to go in quarantine.

Apart from us not being able to travel home to visit friends and family, life goes on like nothing ever happened. From the start, we have always focused our business around local people and expats. That’s why we are not so affected by corona as all the businesses that solemnly rely on foreign tourists.

With the government making it nearly impossible to leave and enter Cambodia, many Khmers are traveling down to the coast. This is good for hotel businesses and smaller businesses like ours that focus on Cambodian and expat customers.

In times like this, we feel very grateful to be here and still be able to make a living for ourselves. Let’s hope this craziness stops soon so everything can go back to a different normal.

HOMEMADE TRICOLOR BUCKWHEAT FAJITAS (VEGAN AND GLUTEN-FREE)

Ingredient in the spotlight: King Oyster Mushroom


Also known as the king trumpet or eryngii, the king oyster mushroom is the largest of the oyster mushroom family. They can grow up to 10-15 cm (4-6 inches) in length.

Unlike other oyster mushrooms, their stalks aren’t tough and woody. They are well-loved for their meaty texture and umami flavor. It’s texture often reminds people of abalone or scallops, which makes them an interesting option for vegetarians and vegans.

They are an excellent source of riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and dietary fiber. Furthermore, they contain good amounts of protein, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, iron, magnesium, zinc, and manganese. They are very low in calories, saturated fat, and cholesterol

Hi Amy,

Things aren't too bad in the Portuguese countryside/ mountainside ;<)

In fact, I feel it's the media and online world that spread most of the fear.
I'm working on trying to focus less and less on that, it's the only way to stay sane.✨

Big hug.

Wow, this looks so delicous!

I will recreate your recipe, but I don't have most of your ingredients so I'll just substitute with what I can buy soon :D
