Our beautiful Eastern fusion food feature in Elle Decoration Trends Issue No. 88 has had a few of our readers feeling hungry for more. So here you have them. The shots that didn’t make it into the magazine. Turn to P89 in our latest issue now on shelf, for a bunch of the best, fast and easy Chinese recipes. Learn to make lotus leaf parcels, chicken and red cabbage spring rolls, crispy pork belly and marinated red cabbage, and fried (or steamed) pork and vegie dumplings. Oh, and for desert: frozen banana and lemon sorbet, with honey, candied sesame seeds and toasted coconut. While you’re feeling Eastern-minded, go to page 98 and find out what to see and do – and where to shop – in Beijing.
