Funchoza is a well known salad in Central Asia. I am not very sure of it’s origins. Always thought of it being Korean but recent searches show that it is actually Uighur (ethnic minority in China) dish. The ingredients might remind Japchae but the taste is absolutely not the same. Japchae uses potato starch noodles, funchoza is done with rice noodles.
I got inspired to make this easy and wholesome dish from one of our www.arbuz.com participants Beyazgul. Wanting to learn more about the dish, I did a little research of my own.
This particular recipe of Foret Noire Cake is very close to the Schwarzwäld cake and as I heard, is very popular among French and Germans. There are different methods used in making the Black Forest Cake, as it seems that the original version has been changed many times. I chose this particular one since I came to love it very much.
We love home made Tiramisu. I think we make it more than any other dessert. This Tiramisu recipe will definitely rock your world. I researched the origin of this treat and found a lot of different information about it. A very interesting one came from my sister Kamola, who knew the wife of an Italian ambassador in Uzbekistan. According to her, Tiramisu was first prepared by wives of soldiers. They would prepare this desert for their husbands because it was filling and contained ingredients (eggs, cream, strong espresso) that kept soldiers energized and ready to fight and protect. Most likely by now you have already tried some type of tiramisu recipe, or maybe you’ve tried it in some Italian restaurant. I urge to give my tiramisu recipe a try!
