International Spa Cooking at Foodies Night In!

8 Feb

We are so excited to announce that SATW has been asked to co-host one of twitter’s newest traditions:  Foodies Night In!  #fni   The brainchild of Cooking with Caitlin – it’s a live tweetchat for those of us that love to eat (and cook) on Mondays from 4 – 6 pm Eastern Standard Time.

This week’s topic is International Food & since we’re hosting if you love spa and great food you won’t want to miss this chance to learn cooking tips and recipes and to meet a lot of  likeminded tweeters – half the fun in my opinion.  I’m asking some of our spa pals to stop by so you’ll have the chance to “chat” & bring some of their delish dishes & cooking tips home.

I’ve posted a recipe from Chiva Som spa in Thailand to get the ball rolling . . .  and after the chat we will link to and/or provide other recipes from spas that participate.  More information on Foodies Night In is at Cooking with Caitlin’s site.  Looking forward to tweeting with you tomorrow!  Please email me candace@artofthespa.com if you have recipes or want more information on how to participate.

Once the chat is over you can still search #fni on twitter to see the conversation.

See you at the Spa and on Twitter, Candy

Black Sticky Rice with Mango

Ingredients

  • 300 g (10 ½ oz) black glutinous rice
  • 300 g (10 ½ oz) white glutinous rice
  • 180 g (6 oz) brown sugar
  • 225 ml (8 fl oz/1 cup) coconut milk
  • 750 g (1 lb 10 oz) ripe mangoes, peeled and cut into bite-size wedges

Method

Soak black glutinous rice and white glutinous rice separately in water overnight. Drain and combine. In a steamer, steam rice for 30-40 minutes. In a saucepan, over a medium heat, combine brown sugar and coconut milk and simmer for 7-10 minutes, stir constantly and ensure sugar has dissolved. Pour milk mixture into a large mining bowl, add cooked sticky rice and combine. Cover the mixing bowl with a lid or cling film and allow rice to absorb liquid for 30 minutes. Form the sticky rice into oval shapes by hand; there should be enough for 15 pieces. Place mango wedges on top and serve.
