INTERVIEW WITH KATELYN OF @KATFEWD


First things first, what is @katfewd all about?

@katfewd started off as a little Instagram page where I would share my cooking adventures and document my trials and errors along the way. As my number of recipes grew, it made sense to start a blog where I recipe develop and share my favourite recipes!

How did your passion with cooking start and what kind of foods are you most passionate about?

I started cooking during my gap year in order to (attempt) to eat less instant noodles in my first year of university, and realised I had so much fun in the kitchen! I love baking and experimenting with new recipes; you’ll find me getting my hands dirty kneading dough or watching food videos on YouTube for hours on end!

I love all food — so there’s all sorts of things I make, but in general I try to eat quite healthily! I enjoy finding ways to give my favourite foods healthy twists using more nutritious ingredients. I’m also a big believer in supporting local produce and brands, which I incorporate into my cooks and bakes as much as possible!

Aside from creating recipes, what do you do in your daily life?

I’m currently in my second year of university in UCL! I enjoy being outdoors and love fitness, my favourite would have to be spin (definitely have to exercise to burn of all those calories from trying out new recipes!) I also spend lots of time with my family, friends and my 14-year-old chihuahua, Scruffy!

What do you like about working with Niko Neko Matcha / Houjicha / Genmaicha powder when creating your recipes?

I find Niko Neko powders blend amazingly with all kinds of milks without being powdery or clumpy, creating the perfect matcha latte or baked good! I’ve used it in everything from bread to overnight oats to tarts and it works every time!

Personal tips for your recipe viewers when working with Matcha recipes.

Be creative and go all out! Matcha powder is definitely a hidden gem in baking. Not only does it taste delicious but it is also full of all the good stuff — antioxidants, vitamins and minerals! Not to mention, with its vibrant shade of green it makes your cakes and tarts look divine!

RECIPE

Vegan Genmaicha Pancakes

by katfewd



Recipe makes a stack of 5-6 pancakes

Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
Total time: 30 mins



Ingredients

120g flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt
2 tsp MOKUREN / Genmaicha powder (more if you like it stronger!)
1 cup plant-based milk
1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
1 tbsp plant-based butter
Toppings of your choice to garnish: I used cacao nibs, pecans, strawberry compote

Method To Assemble

  1. Whisk the nut milk and lemon juice together and let rest for 5 minutes.

  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, matcha powder and salt and sift into a bowl.

  3. Mix the vegan buttermilk (made from nut milk and lemon juice) with the butter and maple syrup, then add into the flour. Gently fold in with a whisk, careful not to over-mix.

  4. In a pan, melt additional vegan butter, then pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake slowly. Flip after bubbles form at the top the pancake turns golden brown, and repeat for the other side. When all your pancakes are done, serve stacked with a drizzle of maple syrup and toppings of your choice!
