Many of my friends in Europe celebrate the summer months. Warm, sunny days, vacations, best time of the year. But here in Singapore, we celebrate the end of the crazy hot mid-year months. And these bright, lemon tarts are my favourite way to celebrate. I always called them my version of a lemon meringue tart,... Continue Reading →

While I don't think there was anything wrong with last week's chocolate tarts, somehow, it just didn't hit the spot. So I decided to give it another try, this time with my square tart rings (aren't rings round??). And I have to say, I do like this rendition a lot more. Firstly, I absolutely loved...

Apparently I have not tried making chocolate tart shells using my micro perforated tart rings. So, looks like my feed is going to get bombarded with pictures of chocolate tarts for the coming weeks. For this tart, I decided to go full-on chocolate, trying out different chocolate components with different textures. Since there is no... Continue Reading →

This post is a belated Mother's Day post. As I was serving the last days of my previous job (and going out for lots of dinner and drinks from colleagues), it was difficult to find time to make a full fledge Mother's Day cake. Also, I didn't think a cake covered in whipped cream would... Continue Reading →

This must be one of my worst baking weekend ever. I wanted to make some whipped ganache to top this tart, but, boy, I made two batches and somehow managed to screw up both of them. Both times I made a "liquid" ganache, with a 2:1 heavy cream to chocolate ratio, chill it, then whip... Continue Reading →

Pistachio has a very distinct taste. And while that taste is very pronounce when you eat the nuts on its own, it is very difficult to incorporate is successfully into other dishes. After so many attempts on pistachio tarts, I still cannot really say I have found the perfect recipe. But, the salted pistachio praline... Continue Reading →
