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! My method of lining the tart rings is a little unusual. I'd cut out strips to line the sides. For round tarts, normally just one ling strip. But for rectangular... Continue Reading →

I have been fascinated with Yann Brys’ "tourbillon" technique for the longest time, and have been toying with the idea of buying a turntable, just to try piping this myself.

I was still trying to figure out which mold works better for making inserts to fit this Russian Tale, and looks like the Silikomart Petit Four works perfectly! Chocolate and passion fruit is always a winning combination. So this particular... Continue Reading →

A twist on the classic. Since I have a gigantic bottle of coffee extract I have been looking up recipes involving coffee. And nothing screams classic coffee dessert like a tiramisu. It is also a good way to use up the big canister of mascarpone in my refrigerator. Except, of course, I'd like mine with... 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 →
