Is it confusing?Let me introduce you to the common types of flour in the UK,and show you which one is used to make dumplings and which one is used to make cakes.
  •                                                            Cake FlourThis kind of flour is suitable for making cake flour with soft texture, such as red velvet cake, black forest, etc.
  •                                                             Plain FlourThis is the simplest flour that can be bought in a British supermarket, only flour, without adding anything else. Like dumpling skin, pit cake skin, noodles, small biscuits are available
  •                                                   Self Raising FlourIf you make a pastry with your own noodles, put it in the oven and bake it and it will swell up. The British will use the self-made powder to make scones or any flour that needs to be fluffy.

Top 5 foods to eat in Korea and where to go to eat it

I love Korean food and I spent two years living and travelling there trying foods from all the different provinces. This is a guide to one of my favorite countries and some of my favorite foods. We’ll start in Seoul and work our way down. (Disclaimer: though there are many amazing foods in Korea this is my top 5)

  1. Seoul: Street food, So this is cheating a bit as it’s a whole category but Seoul has the best street food in the world, in my humble opinion, and the best places to find it is in Myeongdong and Namdaemun Market  
  2. Chuncheon: Dak galbi, this is actually my all time favorite Korean food. It’s a stir-fried marinated chicken but explaining it wont come close to doing it justice. Take a bus or train to this beautiful city in Gangwon-do and try it for yourself.

  3. Gongju: Flowers, no really flowers. There a lovely restaurant called Gomanaru in Gongju that serves its food with colorful edible flowers.
  4. Busan: Fish cake (Eomunk), fish cake is not something I thought I would love but I fell in love at first bite. Busan is my favorite big city in Korea so take some time to explore it and try more foods
  5. Jeonju: Bibimbap is one of the first Korean food I ever tried and I make it a point to have some anytime I’m in Jeonju
