Prosciutto is such an expensive treat in Singapore, and the once or twice I tried it, I really was not impressed. So, despite the fact the original Paul Hollywood recipe uses prosciutto, I just couldn't be bothered to use them in my loaves. When I was in Europe I while back, I decided to bring...

Somewhere in the middle of the week, I got this sudden craving for some foccacia. And since I have been baking most of my bread sans commercial yeast, I decided to give sourdough foccacia a try. But it's so hard to find sourdough foccacia recipe online, in metric sale. So finally I decided to just... Continue Reading →

You can't really go wrong with the classics, and nothing says classics like the quiche Lorraine. I always said I will not bake for the next potluck, but somehow I always do. And sometimes, more than one, or two, items! Since I figured I'll be in over my head with our Christmas Eve dinner this... Continue Reading →

It was Epicurean Market time, which means lots of cheese, wine and good food. In the spirit of sharing our "loot", my friends and I had a "cheese and wine" evening. And that is always a great reason to bake my favourite savoury loaf. This time, the loaf was filled with pancetta and Gruyere picked... Continue Reading →

The ladies of the baking community in my neighbourhood is looking for someone to conduct a session on baking assorted bread rolls. And in the spirit of volunteering, I decided to bake up some of my favourite garlic rolls to see if "they" qualify. These rolls are baked using the $5K starter dough from a... Continue Reading →

So it is only appropriate that sooner or later, I bake a sourdough loaf flavoured with roasted garlic. I used the same proportion of starter, flour, oil, water and salt as my earlier...

I have been baking my weekly sourdough for quite some time now, but I seemed to be getting something wrong, because the dough during bulk fermentation was so wet that it's always just a blob in my proofing container, even at 70% hydration. So I was very, very thankful when a new friend I met... Continue Reading →

Two quiches in the span of a month! Crazy, right? Actually, these mini quiches are made with leftover dough from my last quiche. And as much as I love the spinach quiche, I miss a good ol' classic quiche Lorraine.┬áSo, here it is. Fully packed with bacon and onions (boy, I love onions!) and a... Continue Reading →

Quiches are delicious. It's a melange of cream, cheese and butter. Loads of butter. Which is also why it is not something you can eat regularly. So I always delight in opportunities to bake up a quiche for dinner parties. I was torn between a broccoli and cheddar quiche or a spinach and Gruyere and... Continue Reading →
