Rice Cube

Kitchen gadgets are great. They make cooking and baking more fun. I first saw the Rice Cube at a tradeshow in Melbourne. Ross who is the brains behind the Rice Cube, invented it to help him present his signature dishes.

I watched Ross demonstrate and I instantly wanted my own. At first glance it looks like 2 pieces from my nephews Lego collection, but once you see how it works, it’s incredible.

I decided to make some California Maki and instead of rolling it with the nori, I used the Rice Cube and made 4 different versions. I found it so easy to use. Its a great little gadget and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to improve their presentation skills.

For more information about the Rice Cube, you can go to http://ricecube.net It retails for $34.95. It's the perfect gift for any foodie.

Below is a video of how to use this cool little gadget.


Kulinarya - Spanish/Filipino Dishes and Desserts

Thanks to AC from Acdee and Ziggy from My Filipino Kitchen, this months Kulinarya theme is Filipino/Spanish dishes or desserts.  

I decided to make Pastillas De Leche.  This is normally made with Water Buffalo milk and cooked until the mixture is thick. It is then cooled and rolled in sugar.  I couldn’t find any Water Buffalo milk, so I decided to use a recipe that my mum often makes for her friends. It’s simple and doesn’t require any cooking.

Pastilles De Leche

2 cups of powdered milk
1 can of condensed milk
1 tablespoon of melted unsalted butter (optional)
½ cup of caster sugar


1. Sift the powdered milk into a bowl.
2. Combine the melted butter and the condensed milk into another bowl.
3. Add the sifted powdered milk into the condensed milk mixture and stir until well combined. It should be a thick and sticky consistency.
4. Grab spoonfuls of the mixture and roll into small cylinders. Coat in the caster sugar and wrap individual cylinders in tissue paper or cellophane.

This Spanish/Filipino inspired sweet is sure to please. It's a breeze to make and incredibly delicious.
