Welcome to the World of Marmite! Most of us should have heard of and eaten before food prepared or cooked with Marmite but not many would have known the history of Marmite.
Marmite has a strong heritage in history. In fact, it was invented by a German scientist, Justus Liebig in the late 19th Century. He accidentally discovered that the useless leftover brewer's yeast could be concentrated, bottled and eaten. It was first made edible and sold to the British public over 100 years ago.
Marmite is a French term for a large covered earthenware or metal cooking pot which the yeast extract was supplied in originally. The image of this pot has since been used as a logo for the label. Now, Marmite is sold in the bulbous glass jars that we are all so familiar with today.
Beside being 100% Vegetarian, Marmite is also Halal certified. Rich in Vitamin B, Marmite plays a useful part in many people's diet. It is also a rich source of folic acid, that many women of child-bearing age are found to be deficient of. The brand has successfully established itself as a healthy spread for children. In fact, I remember my mum mixing this in plain porridge to make it flavourful and nutritious. It can also be as simple as adding hot water to make marmite soup but today I'm going to share a more complex recipe of cooking Marmite Chicken Wing

Ending my post with the rest of the dishes prepared by the hubby. It's a stay home National Day this year and while we are catching the National Day Parade on TV, we also caught Psyduck who decided to make a special appearance at our house. Pokemon Go is such a hype now. I just find it very cute to take photos with. Hehe. Happy 51st Birthday, Singapore!
