Was thumbing through Johan Martin's Signature and this recipe caught my eyes. Specifically, the Baileys cream component caught my eyes. I was initially perplexed by the cinnamon based biscuit and thought I would go for something "safe". Like a chocolate or hazelnut biscuit. But my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to...

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 have been fascinated by these "chocolate fingers" I have been seeing on my Instagram feed for the longest time. But somehow it just did not seem to make it into my baking list. Until this weekend. I have been craving something chocolatey. Not just chocolate, but layers of chocolate, and nuts, and caramel. I... Continue Reading →

After a lot of research and testing, plus indispensible advice and recipe sharing from a good friend, I finally came up with a combination that balances sweetness and flavours, with a special accent on the hazelnut praline. And thus... Continue Reading →

When I first saw this recipe, I was really intrigued by the flavours - caramel mousse, chocolate hazelnut and spiced pears. Spiced pears - how exciting is that! I didn't think the neighbourhood grocer would be too pleased if I asked to buy 2 cinnamon sticks, 4 star anise, 4 cloves and 1 nutmeg, so... Continue Reading →

Few things exhilarate a baker like watching your baked goods transform from the raw batter to its cooked form in the oven - like oven spring for a loaf of bread, macaron "feet" formation, choux puffing, the list goes on. One of my favourite is the rise of that madeleine "hump", which I always wait... Continue Reading →
