This is my salmon and Chinese cabbage giant roll!























Here's what you need:
  • One Chinese cabbage
  • Two slices of fresh (not smoked) salmon
  • One puff pastry sheet
  • Sesame seeds




 Wash, chop and boil the cabbage for 10 minutes, then drain as much water as possible.












Mince the salmon.









Put in a pan extra-virgin olive oil, chilly peppers and a couple of garlic cloves. When the garlic becomes golden, remove it and carefully add the cabbage. Cook it by stirring for 10 more minutes and add a bit of salt. At the end, sprinkle the cabbage with sesame seeds (and stir again). 


Remove the cabbage from the pan and put it in a plate. Use the same pan to stir-fry (for 2-3 minutes) the salmon strips.



 Season the puff pastry sheet with the cabbage and salmon, roll it and cook it for 40 minutes in a pre-warmed oven (@200 °C)

Fire vibe soap: recipe, tricks and links to technical videos

I have mixed two techniques in order to obtain different patterns, one on the inside of the soap bar and one on the top.



Here you have the links to the original videos showing the techniques: 1) Tilted tiger stripe swirl 2) Multi-mica Taiwan swirl

Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'

Looking for a great on-line craft shop?

How do I choose an on-line craft shop over another?
The interactionwiththecustomer is very important to me! And of course the shippingcosts, which are often the bottleneck of the situation, are an important issue as well!

There are plenty of on-line craft shops !  Some of them belong to renowned brands, some are just retailers of famous brands and some other (like most of the shops on ebay) are managed by private sellers/users.  I like to buy from small sellers, and I recently found an ebay shop called Crafts-inspainwhich I think is really interesting.
Pros: a pretty good choice of products great pricesreasonable shipping costs for EU customers (the shop is based in Spain)combined postage availablesales promotions and/or items with reduced prices often availablefast shipping times quick reaction of the seller when contacted Cons:
maybe the only one, is that you can't immediately find the latest products from major brands as soon as they are released on the market (but who cares???) 
Ah, in…
