So I am remaking all my favourite tarts with my new tart rings. Seriously, with these micro-perforated tart rings, making tart shells are almost addictive!

So I finally got my first perforated tart rings! And what a strange route they took to get to me! As one of my colleague was going for a work trip to Rennes, I decided to order these rings, have them sent to his hotel room so he could cart them back to me. But... Continue Reading →

Every time I flipped through Pierre Hermé's Desserts, there are just tonnes of recipes I wanted to try out - it is impossible to pick just one. But, unfortunately, time is a limit, so is the capacity of my freezer. So for this special week 100, I decided to pick a rather basic, but delicious... Continue Reading →

For the last four of my tart shells, I decide to experiment with some coffee and chocolate flavours, as promised to friend at work.

I felt strangely uninspired to bake recently. I mean, it's okay once I get into it. But I just find it so hard to peel myself off my behind and work in the kitchen.
