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)

A quick guide to candle making 🕯️

Finally, temperature lowered and I managed to prepare a set of candles for this fall.
Candles are great for any occasion!
Halloween🎃, Xmas🎄, B-days🎂, romantic dinners🥂 or relaxing nights🌃. You can keep 'em for yourself or give them to family and friends as gifts!
If you've never made candles before, but you're eager to try, here you have 10 basic steps to follow.

This is not a comprehensive guide and does not pretend to be a candle-making course.

1) weigh the wax  Do you want to know more about waxes? Follow this LINK
2) Melt it in a double boiler (bain-marie). Stir every now and then...    ⚠ Do not boil the wax ⚠ Neverever place the container with the wax directly on the stove!
3)  At this point, you can add some color HERE, you have a post on candle dyes.

Remember: the final color of your candle depends on the wax too! For example, soy wax iswhite at room temperature and for this reason, it gives back pastel-like colors. A trick to check the final color: drip some melted wax on a…

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
Since I run out of castor oil, I had to modify the recipe shown in video 1) as follows  😅
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).'
