On the ground floor of the building in which I work in, there is this wondrous grocery store which sells the most interesting food items from all around the world. This is where I can be found when the publishing world gets a bit too hectic. Wondering the aisle, reading labels and purchasing a whole lot of random items has become my guilty pleasure.
So when I stumbled upon this delightful tin of Wasabi Powder, I purchased it on a whim without giving much thought to what I would actually use it for. I kept going back to the idea of making Wasabi popcorn and lo and behold that is what I made.
Making the wasabi paste itself was an interesting one! Apparently to create a paste with a strong hit, it is essential to turn the bowl, in which the paste has been mixed in, upside down! I'm guessing some sort of law of physics or chemistry applies here!
The paste is then mixed with melted butter and poured over freshly popped corn. This turned out to be a nice change from the usual sweet stuff and is pretty addictive. The wasabi flavour itself isn't too strong which is nice for me as I usually am in agony from consuming too much wasabi in one go!
Also has anyone watched the trailer for Despicable Me 2? I can't get enough of it and it's been on constant replay today!! It's sooo incredibly cute and makes me laugh every time! Can't wait for the movie to be released :D
Finally, does anybody have any idea what I can do with the rest of this tin of wasabi powder?!
