A Bamboo Steamer

A bamboo steamer is a beautiful and originally handcrafted device that allows you to cook rice, dumplings, vegetables and even meat like chicken (without microwaving it) through steam cooking without oil and whilst preserving nutrients.

You can choose to opt for the traditional bamboo made option or a modern metal equivalent depending on how authentic you want your Asian cooking to be. 

And the great thing is you can cook multiple foods at the same time on the different levels of the steamer (typically there is 3) so you literally can cook your full meal of meat, rice (or other carbs) and veg.

These are very traditional in Asian households. 

Here are some of the best Bamboo steamers...

Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup that is light and fragrant and served with thin rice noodles, leafy green vegetables, and meat and it's one of my favourite Asian dishes.

Spice and Herb Kits

Whilst not ALL Asian food is incredibly hot or spicy they certainly on the whole enjoy food that is rich in spices and flavours compared to the West.

There's nothing better than the simple combination of chilli and Thai basil which makes up the main flavours of my favourite Thai dish "pad ka pow" (literally stir friend chilli and Thai basil with your meat of choice, sometimes thinly sliced vegetables, served over rice and with a fried egg on top which you can microwave and it's delicious!).

The Most Amazing and Authentic Asian Kitchenware and Gadgets

I really hope you've enjoyed my list of what I think are essential (and OK maybe I am obsessed and you don't need all of them) authentic Asian kitchenware items and gadgets from noodle bowls (get a Pho bowl if anything I would say) and soup spoons to Asian knife sets and chopsticks to bento sets and Japanese tea cup sets and beyond.

Whatever you buy and eat with it, please enjoy!
