It has been a very long time since I last made salted caramel tarts, and after taking a bite, I cannot remember why - they are so delicious! Inspired by Majavase, I attempted a somewhat similar decoration using chocolate discs with spires to top the tartlets. Thanks to chef Otto and the instructional video from... Continue Reading →

'Tis the season for chocolate and pecan. I have been wanting to bake something with pecans for the longest time. So when I saw David Lebovitz's chocolate pecan pie recipe, I knew this is what I have been waiting to try. As usual, I would like to dress up the tart with at least 3... Continue Reading →

Back in the kitchen and all caught up with the latest episodes of gbbo which I missed for the last 2 weeks. Despite the horrible jet lag, where I had to keep myself up the whole of yesterday (touched down in Singapore at 5:30 am) and ended up sleeping a whooping 14 hours straight, waking...

It's been a while since I made anything from my pastry idol's recipe book, so, for this special bake on my special day, I decided to go back to the root of my pastry love. Since I only have a day (I took a day off work), I can't do anything too complicated. So I... 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 →

My last attempt at Hokkaido cheese tarts was somewhat a failure. And that was probably because I took too many shortcuts. So this time I made sure to follow the steps carefully. Instead of the usual Hokkaido cheese tart shape, I decided to bake these in my standard French tartlets, with a little added twist.... Continue Reading →
