Kaffir lime leaves

A Thai friend gave me these. These are lemon grass stems, chili peppers and Kaffir lime leaves. This hourglass-shaped leaves are not common in the market but it provides very unique flavor in cooking and it is a must-have for some dishes.

Chili peppers

Chili peppers are more popular than ever and so many different kinds are available. Not only you can choose how hot you want to make your dish but you can create a very complex flavor by combining different peppers.


Peppers are in season ! So many different shapes and color brighten the market. Not only the looks but the taste and flavor, sweet, hot and super hot are fun to try.
