Pailleté Feuilletine (Recipe)

Buttery, sweet and crispy feuilletine cost a fortune even at baking supply stores. Here, I’m making them at a fraction of the cost. I’ve never had them in unbroken pieces and boy did these taste good. First, you melt the butter in a metal bowl over a saucepan with simmering water (double boiling). Add theContinue reading “Pailleté Feuilletine (Recipe)”

Super Soft Mochi 麻署 (Recipe)

One of my favourite foods is mochi. That soft, chewy texture and fragrance of glutinous rice never fails to trigger my appetite. In Taiwan, I ate some of the best mochi I’ve ever had in my life, from 一之軒. It was super soft and almost melt-in-the-mouth, with the right amount of chewiness. I decided to comeContinue reading “Super Soft Mochi 麻署 (Recipe)”

Guilt Free Decadent Malted Marbled Banana Bread (Recipe)

Good ol’ banana bread. With swirls of malt. And studded with chocolate chips. Topped with crumble. A banana bread really can’t get better than this. That its low fat is just a bonus. 

The Last Trip : Shanghai 2012

I realised not everyone who loves horror movies manage to appreciate the gore of Thai and Japanese ones. Not everyone who enjoys peace and harmony enjoys the freaking ambition of Cantonese police action movies to demonstrate how truly awesome policemen are (thanks, but no thanks, bro). But of course, with age, mothers tend to getContinue reading “The Last Trip : Shanghai 2012”

Fudgy Chocolate Cake with Nutella Frosting and Cheescake Filling

Sometimes, I’m scared. When cockroaches fly-pounce onto my shirt (avoid bright colours near cockroaches). When my health is out of my control because  even a change in diet or taking medicine doesn’t work. When a “complex numbers” question appears on my examination paper. When I dislocate my right wrist but can’t feel any pain. WhenContinue reading “Fudgy Chocolate Cake with Nutella Frosting and Cheescake Filling”

B-Caraibe (A Vanilla-Chocolate-Banana Entremet)

It is an entremet with banana mousse, vanilla chantilly whipped cream and chocolate tofu cream sandwiched between springy almond sponge. The banana layer almost gave me a heart attack (though unlikely). I used some really ripe, soggy, close to rotting bananas that were just barely swimming in their own juice. I added lemon juice, blendedContinue reading “B-Caraibe (A Vanilla-Chocolate-Banana Entremet)”

Dear Barney, or Mr Stinson (Recovering Mentally Unsound human being, Whatever you prefer I call you), You’re handsome, hot, surprising sensitive, sometimes hilariously dumb, an insult to Barney the Dinosaur (since you two share the same name), terribly rich, gorgeously well-dressed and would totally win a Girls’ Choice Award.
