The brilliance of induction
‘I really do believe that tiny changes can have a profound impact on your life.’ Beginning her journey by growing a few herbs on her apartment balcony, Palisa immersed herself into growing authentic Thai ingredients she couldn’t find at the local grocer. It is this passion for adaptation and learning that made the transition to farm life such an easy one, and likewise the switch to induction a natural choice for Palisa.
Why Palisa loves induction
‘Because induction is the cleanest, most efficient way to cook, I know I’m doing my bit to pass this magnificent environment onto future generations.’ A firm believer that small changes can make a significant impact, Palisa loves induction because it is the more sustainable choice. And there are no cooking limitations, from high intensity wok cooking through to extremely low and gentle temperature control, Miele induction cooktops provide all the flexibility Palisa needs out of a cooktop.
Stir-fry Asian greens with Palisa’s universal stir-fry sauce
Forever embracing a sustainable mindset, Palisa utilises whatever greens are in season and growing in abundance for this recipe, experimenting with the flowering tips from pumpkins and incorporating the most tender stalks, leaves and shoots.
Eat better tip - garlic
This household staple has some profound health benefits. Shown to reduce the severity of symptoms in illnesses such as the common cold, garlic has powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties. Garlic is also high in nutrients and vitamin C and B6, which is important for mood and overall brain health.
The beauty of steam
‘When we became land stewards nine years ago, we threw ourselves into regeneration and rewilding.’
Deeply immersed in the growing of organic produce and land regeneration, Palisa’s commitment to bringing out the best in nature is truly inspiring. These days, Boon Luck Farm is a mini eco-system that’s bursting with abundance. Here Palisa grows rare and exotic citrus fruits, leafy vegetables, herbs, garlic and aromatics which are known for their anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Treating food as preventative medicine, watch as Palisa preserves the nutritional value of her delicious produce with her Miele steam oven.
Why Palisa loves steam
‘I adore cooking with steam, it’s a really respectful way to treat our ingredients.’ Retaining up to 50% more vitamins than conventional cooking methods, Palisa loves this gentle approach to cuisine which envelops her food in moisture – preserving the colour, texture and intense natural flavour of the produce she has worked so hard to grow and harvest.
Thai style chicken and rice
A sophisticated approach to the much loved Thai street food classic, Palisa’s succulent steamed chicken is perfectly paired with a fiery khao mun gai sauce, a warm bed of rice that has been cooked in fragrant broth, and cucumber slices on the side.
Eat better tip - galangal
Used in Ayurvedic and traditional medicine for centuries to support immunity, galangal is a rich source of antioxidants. From the same family as turmeric and ginger, this fragrant spice packs a flavoursome punch and works well in Thai dishes such as soups and curries – yum!
