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 →

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. And these bright, lemon tarts are my favourite way to celebrate. I always called them my version of a lemon meringue tart,... Continue Reading →

This bake is very much belated. And the photographs even more so. I know I have been quiet for a while. It's just the rest of life catching up. Anyway, I have an image of these little darlings in my head for the longest time. And really pleased with the way they turned out. I... Continue Reading →

Mid week chocolate cravings! So, of course, this weekend bake involves chocolate, loads of it! 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 →

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. But here they are again, with my favourite lemon curd and cream cheese mousse. Except, these are no regular lemons. These are made from the legendary Sicilian... Continue Reading →

Whenever I need to whip up something in a jiffy, this is my go-to recipe. And I promised our intern at work that I would bake her something special before she returns to France. So, here it is. Thankfully, I have frozen pâté sucrée in my freezer, and a lemon in the fridge. 😅 This... Continue Reading →
