Madonna and Matcha Tiramisu

What is Madonna and Matcha Tiramisu have in common?

Since I was a teenager, I love cooking and experimenting with different ingredients – it all started with the green orange juice (which I mentioned in Tea Lifestyle Youtube Channel).Also from my teenage, I didn’t understand the singer, Madonna.

Now I am a business owner, I understand what is common between Madonna and Matcha Tiramisu…

Okay, I still don’t totally understand her, but from her, someone who has remained so dominant for more than two decades in the ruthless music industry, I understand the eternal power of “reinvention”.

As a business owner, I must appreciate my customers like me, will not totally stand still in one state, even if I try.

The need for constant reinvention in order to stay ahead of the competition is part of the survival skill.

They all have a place in the world.

Fusion cooking is one of those creative arts that challenges traditions, reinvents an ingredient from its “normal” or “ordinary” use.

Matcha traditionally is used in Japanese tea ceremony. It is a solemn, “serious” sort of green tea.

Of course in Japan you can find many traditional sweets made with Matcha, such as the rice cake mochi.

But with creativity and cultural exchanges, Matcha is reborn, as Matcha Kit Kat chocolate, Matcha icecream and even Matcha pancakes and Matcha marshmallows.

The cross-cultural Matcha reinvention I love most is Matcha Tiramisu. Yes it is super easy to make, and pseudo healthy to eat because it has the anti-oxidant rich, “weight conscious” green tea powder, Matcha.

So what ingredient can you reinvent, today?

Salina is a little tea crazy. Her first drink experiment was a green orange juice that she gave to his brother when she was 12. No sibling was harmed in the process, and though she failed chemistry as a school subject, she continues to love food and spend lots of time tea mixing.
