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 →

You know you can never go wrong with cheesecake and caramelised white chocolate. Especially when the recipe is from one of the winner of my favourite baking show.

This post is a belated Mother's Day post. As I was serving the last days of my previous job (and going out for lots of dinner and drinks from colleagues), it was difficult to find time to make a full fledge Mother's Day cake. Also, I didn't think a cake covered in whipped cream would... Continue Reading →

This must be one of my worst baking weekend ever. I wanted to make some whipped ganache to top this tart, but, boy, I made two batches and somehow managed to screw up both of them. Both times I made a "liquid" ganache, with a 2:1 heavy cream to chocolate ratio, chill it, then whip... Continue Reading →

Pistachio has a very distinct taste. And while that taste is very pronounce when you eat the nuts on its own, it is very difficult to incorporate is successfully into other dishes. After so many attempts on pistachio tarts, I still cannot really say I have found the perfect recipe. But, the salted pistachio praline... Continue Reading →
