I've enjoyed cooking for a number of years now and have developed my taste for different foods which means I've been able to experience foods and flavours from different countries in my own kitchen. My tastes and preferences have changed with time but I seem to have settled on Asian food being my favourite. If I had to choose a few dishes I'd have to go for chicken ramen, katsu curry, vegetable sushi, chow mein and sweet & sour chicken. I've tried a number of Asian meals in restaurants but have been wanting to try these dishes at home.

Sous Chef contacted me to see if I'd want to try out some of their Japanese Tableware. They are an online store that has collections of equipment, gifts, ingredients and tableware for those who love to cook. The stoneware items come in a mixture of designs and colours which gives you the choice where you can mix and match your dishes with the styles you like. The first product I received was the White & Grey Swoosh Noodle Bowl (£12.50). It's a deep bowl that will be ideal for stews, noodles and soups as you will be able to get plenty of the broth or sauce for the full flavour experience. I've never really eaten soups in the past as English soups have never really appealed to me, but some Asian style ones or French onion soup are ones that'd I want to try so this bowl would be ideal.

The other tableware item I received was the Sakura Blossom Ramen Bowl (£19.50). This would be perfect for serving generous portions of ramen and miso broth so would be ideal if you fancy a warming meal in the colder months. I normally go for chicken ramen but I'll be picking up some cookbooks to look at more recipes. An added bonus with this bowl is that it's microwave and dishwasher safe which makes things that bit easier. If you are into cooking and fancy trying out something new or topping up your cupboards with some good quality products, or want to start or add to your collection of tableware then it will be worth checking out what Sous Chef offers.
