    “This Is not What I Expected” movie Pasta

    emointhekitchen A gluten-free version of Pasta Alla Strega I like Asian cinematography. I do not mean Hong Kong kung fu movies with bruce lee, but rather independent directors. But even mainstream production is sometimes worth mentioning. I recently saw a romantic comedy “This is not what I expected” <喜欢你>, loosely based on the book “Finally I Get You” written by Lan Bai Se. The plot is pretty simple: the rich man meets a poor girl and NO, they don’t fell in love but he fell in love with her cooking. Because the girl is actually a chef in a hotel restaurant…I would stop here, you can (if you are interested)…

    Online Courses (not only) for Aspiring Herbalists

    emointhekitchen Although the main subject of my interest is herbalism in terms of Chinese medicine, it is not always possible to use it for various reasons. The Western approach to holistic healing and healing plants also goes deep into history and sometimes is more accessible to many people. However, since there are many sources of information on the use of herbs, there is a need to be very cautious where you get information. I have done my private research on this subject and I can say in a responsible way that the Herbal Academy is a place where you can draw knowledge without fear. No matter where you are at…

    The use of Chinese medicine in the treatment of atopic dermatitis.

    emointhekitchen People who suffer from atopic dermatitis know it is a problem that cannot be essentially eliminated. It is an inflammatory skin disorder that manifests a reddish, very itchy skin that can be thickened, dry and scaly. When humidity is added to the internal hotness, affected areas of skin can weep. I want to share my experience because I know how eczema can make life harder. My husband is struggling with atopic eczema in the lower limbs since childhood. Acute symptoms we usually cope with Traditional Chinese Medicine. Nevertheless, the patient’s condition varies rapidly depending on many factors. Among the important factors include stress, season, weather, etc. In acute cases…

    Beet-root Salad

    emointhekitchen Honestly, like a child, but in fact until my twenty-five, I hated red beet from the bottom of my heart. I had it connected to the school canteen. It was always cooked, diced and marinated in a kind of odd salty-sweet and sour marinade. I always felt like I was forced to eat clay…Fortunately, these reminiscences have disappeared over time. You will need: 1 large beet (cooked or raw according to taste) 50 g of walnuts (pre-soaked, chopped) approx. 200 g sour cream (or Greek type yoghurt) salt, pepper, parsley Grate the beetroot coarsely, add chopped nuts, salt, pepper, parsley, sour cream and mix gently. Serve garnished for example…

    Chinese Medicine Treatment of Feline Leukaemia (FeLV)

    emointhekitchen I’m a cats lover and I would like to share a recent experience with you. It is said that cats have 9 lives. However, my good friend owns a tomcat named Loop who, unfortunately, suffers from feline leukaemia (FeLV). Although he is quite young (approx.5 years old), the prognosis is poor. Cat leukaemia infection (FeLV) is a virus that spreads among felines and has possibly deadly impacts. FeLV is transmitted between cats by close contact, via saliva and by sharing water or food. In the initial stage, the disease can only be diagnosed by blood tests. As it progresses, it may lead to neurologic disorders, kidney failure, arthritis and…

    Kimchi-jjigae (Rich Korean Soup)

    emointhekitchen Traditionally this soup could be served in a large pot in the middle of the table. The whole family would meet and share the meal from the shared pot. It is a bit like a Chinese hot pot or a French fondue. Hot pots, as well as fondue, are very social dinning methods so if you are kinda shy and not at ease with “hot potting” you are of course free to use individual bowls for serving. Children, however, usually love this kind of pastime. Therefore, if you are a larger family with kids I suggest you give it a try. You will certainly enjoy a lot of fun.…

    Wine in the Traditional Chinese Medicine

    emointhekitchen In many countries, is in the Christmas season people traditionally consume a mulled wine with fragrant spices. To make this article easier to read, you can prepare a cup of this warming beverage in the English style, according to Jamie Oliver. From the TCM point of view Wine is mentioned in The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine for the treatment of meridian blockages, fainting and tinnitus. It harmonizes blood and chi, it is a tonic for Yang and expels cold. Some Chinese medicinal remedies are more effective if taken along with alcohol instead of water. However, different types of wine have different effects. White wine represents the element of…

    Old Bohemian Christmas Table

    emointhekitchen We are all part of nature and we should live in accordance with its changes and norms. In winter, the Yin energy prevails and the days are short. This should be reflected in our rhythm of life. We should sleep and relax more. However, the end of the year brings increased tension, pre-Christmas preparations and worries. Despite all our efforts, we can’t avoid this rush. However, we can try to slow down at least. Christmas is a Christian feast associated with the birth of Christ but it is based on the pagan celebration of the solstice. Christmas customs, as well as traditional Christmas dishes, vary greatly from country to…

    Winter From the Perspective of Chinese Medicine

    emointhekitchen From the Chinese Tradition, which deals with Yin and Yang and Five Elements, we learn that the winter period is connected with the water element. In nature, we can observe how the space energy drops down, the leaves of the trees fell, tree sap withdrew to the roots. Days are cold and nights long. People should reduce their activity and relax. Nowadays, artificial lighting significantly shortens long winter evenings. Yet we should sleep, relax and meditate even more and spend more time in the circle of our loved ones. It is important to protect the kidneys and the bladder (the organs of the water element) with warm clothing and…
