Steaming is a wonderful way to lock in goodness that your food has to offer. It’s also going to ensure that flavour is locked in, given that you don’t overcook your food in the steamer which is often why this method of cookery has had a bad rep in the past. We urge you to try your eggs in the morning steamed with a dash of soy sauce and perhaps some sesame oil drizzled on top. It’s best when the egg is cooked to a perfect medium, where the yolk is firm on the outside and gooey in the middle. So here we have made a simple steaming guide for you to practise with - whether you have a steamer or just a regular saucepan!

Thai beef salad or ’nam tok nua’ is our salute to Summer as we transition into a new season. Think perfect crusty steak that’s still blushing pink in the middle, sliced into a herb-y tangy salad with the crunch of toasted rice.
