Cooking with

Tea Oil

Tee oil is one of the best oils in the world. Its qualities are similar to olive oil but it is largely unknown to the chefs of this globe, as the oil is not yet a far traded commodity. It originates in the mountains of Southern China where the tea tree (Camellia oleifera) grows in home gardens and hill sides.

We are using it every day in our home and here we present some tropical recipes for you:


Sven, a devoted chef, choosing from fresh vegetable

The tropics are full of fascinating wild vegetables. One of the best are banana flowers. They are cut in small pieces and fried in tea oil with some hot spices added.

Our life style is the key to health, our relationships, the upbringing of our children, and the creativity in us that allows for change.

In an ever faster changing political, social, and even natural environment it requires knowledge and artful adaptation to navigate oneself and a family through a life time.

Here are some suggestions on how life could be different. Many suggestions can be picked up right away, as e.g. healthy food preparations. Others you may want to experience during your holidays when visiting us in Thailand and China.

It all relates to how sustainability translates into a life style which helps maintain our personal and environmental health.
