With the long weekend coming up, I'm sure everyone is busy with plans for their braai.

We are so excited about Heritage Day.
We love to celebrate the cultural wealth of our beautiful South Africa. Especially since we are a third culture generation, straddling the shores of Taiwan and South Africa since we were born.

One thing both our cultures share is enjoying a lekker braai, or in Mandarin 燒烤 [shao kao].

Here is our family recipe for braai'd sweet corn. It is so good, we literally fight for the last piece and family and friends request "Uncle Mark's famous corn" at every braai.

Butter 100g
Minced garlic 3 cloves
Minced chillies 3 (depending on heat level preference)
Soy Sauce 3 tablespoons
Honey 2 tablespoons
Coriander (optional)

Heat ingredients together and baste sweet corn on the braai until cooked to sticky perfection. It works great on any veg or even chicken on the braai, but we LOVE it on sweet corn! Tag us if you give it a try this Braai Day.

Fluffiest baozi 包子. Umami packed fillings bursting with flavour and juice enveloped by pillowy bun bread that is steamed to perfection. Option to pan fry the bottoms for a crispy finish.

We dream about these buns from Taiwan. So happy that @home.bao’s ridiculously delicious baozi is available here in SA. Now available online. Get that Taiwanese 🇹🇼 flavour. Link in bio

When our favourite @home.bao tells us they have a new product drop, we drop everything and race to get it.

Recipe tested, incredibly well made - these baozi are fluffy clouds that are the perfect parcel for the juicy fillings

Pork Belly, Szechuan Vegan Mapo Tofu, Salt & Pepper Chicken… and if you can’t decide we even got the taster box!

These crispy bottomed, soft pillowy topped baozi are live on the site now 😊

Spring might have landed in South Africa but for a lot of South East Asian countries, our Mid Autumn Festival is just around the corner. We celebrate this day on the 15th day of the the 8th month on the lunar calendar. This year it falls on the 21st of September.

Opening up preorders for our traditional baked mooncakes and our modern snow mooncakes.

These snow skin mooncakes come in chocolate, matcha, custard and red bean with delightful mochi like outer wrapping.

Orders to be made before 10th September. Orders fulfilled the week of the 15th September to ensure maximum freshness.

Mooncakes will last for a week (but are usually devoured before then). Snow mooncakes are served chilled and traditional mooncakes served at room temp, and enjoyed with tea.

What does a typical Japanese breakfast table look like?

This homemade version of Miso Glazed Salmon with Rolled Egg Omelette and Miso Soup might look similar to Japanese households. Grilled fish is a must.

It's that Friday feeling and we're celebrating with some peking duck and pancakes.

We always need extra hoisin sauce and mountains of cucumber and carrots when we order peking duck.

What is your favourite Chinese take out dish?

Ever had ginger & spring onion sauce?

Typically paired with steamed or poached chicken, it is deceptively simple but tastes so complex 😍

Singaporeans even have it as part of their national Hainanese Chicken Rice dish.

Thoroughly mince 1 cup ginger and spring onions. The tinier the better. Heat 1/2 cup of peanut or neutral high smoke point oil. Very carefully pour the hot oil over the ginger and spring onion mix. Listen to it make delicious popping and sizzling noise

This can be served as a dipping sauce with any steamed protein or even mixed in with noodles and soy sauce for an easy lunch.

Let us know if you try it.

Preserved vegetables. What are they and why do we love them?

In many cuisines you’ll find preserved vegetables and proteins. These were created as a way to combat food waste in a time where modern refrigeration had yet to be invented.

Food born from necessity that still exists today are usually the ones we hold onto the hardest and transport us straight back to our youth. Cue Ratatouille childhood flashback scene

We’re introducing our two absolute pantry must haves when it comes to preserves. Our 炸菜 (pickled mustard stem) and 酸菜 (pickled mustard greens)

Simply add as is on top of any noodle and rice dish for the extra crunch and umami, or fry up with chilli, garlic and your favourite protein as a simple stir fry. No need to add salt or soy sauce as it’s salty enough already

Tell us your favourite pickled foods in the comments 🤗

OUR STORY

Food and travel has always played a huge role in my life and I found that I had a yearning to explore international cuisine and flavours.

Wundercook was born from my passion to create food from all parts of the world and experience international cultures in the comfort of my own home

The idea of creating an international deli began to form. An online platform where I can share recipes from around the globe and provide the necessary ingredients to make it happen

We’ve sourced only brands that we know and trust and work with. South African food brands that have a similar ethos to us - healthy, tasty and eco friendly.
