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.

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 →

Funny story: During my Malta trip, I was invited to a friend's place for a barbecue, Malta style. Meaning, lots of food, beer and wine, and lots of laugh throughout the evening. One of the memorable thing we ate was this chunk of Brie, which was so creamy! My friend was raving about it and... Continue Reading →

I admit I am rather predictable when it comes to tarts. Sorry to disappoint those of you who thought I'd fill those gorgeous tart shells with something different.

There are not many recipes that I would make again and again. But this is one of the few. And probably the only one that does not involve chocolate! The lemon cream filling is tangy and luxurious. And the cream cheese mousse layer added an extra dimension to the tart. And of course the torched... Continue Reading →

Glazing is fun! That is, when you manage to get the glaze to be at the right consistency. The components of these petit gâteau is exactly the same as the berry roses from 2 weeks back. In fact, the leftover mousse, cremeux and feuilletine was just nice to fill 6 domes. I only had enough... Continue Reading →

Earlier this week, a few friends and I got together to make a surprise cake for a friend's early birthday get-together. This friend of ours likes lemon and blueberry. And while this is not the final cake we presented to her, it is very much inspired by her favourite flavours. This petit gateau is made... Continue Reading →
