Ode to Soy Sauce
Smoky, sweet, savoury, umami. A drop goes a long way, we learn to tame the foundational Chinese condiment.

A singular tea leaf can change the course of history, make or break a relationship, move or pause time. We study how time and place create the mysteries around teas we’ve come to enjoy.
Ode to Tofu
Misunderstood to be one-dimensional, tofu can be tender or firm, fried or steamed; nutty or disguised as another flavour. Its characteristics lie within its maker, it can be what you want it to be.

A grain rooted in history, tradition and the culinary backbone of Asia. We put rice forth and examine its magical purity
Ode to Eggs
Master the egg, master the kitchen. The simplest, yet trickiest and most versatile ingredient in every cuisine can play a role of support or lead, the possibilities are endless.
