So I finally got my first perforated tart rings! And what a strange route they took to get to me! As one of my colleague was going for a work trip to Rennes, I decided to order these rings, have them sent to his hotel room so he could cart them back to me. But... Continue Reading →

It is not easy to come across recipe books on entremet so I was really excited when Jerome lugged the gigantic L'École de la Pâtisserie book from France. It contained some really interesting recipes too! To be honest, one of the reason I did not try the recipes sooner is that the book's owner didn't... Continue Reading →

What's better than a decadent, dark chocolate dessert for Valentine's Day? Trick question. There's nothing better, really. But, to break with tradition, and a close personal second favourite, I decided to make something without chocolate. This petit gâteau is an amalgamation of a few of my favourite non-chocolate components. The only thing I needed to... Continue Reading →

My last bake for the year (yes, this is also for the Christmas Eve potluck).

I used to be very confident of my macarons, but of late, probably due to the lack... Continue Reading →

 Once I get an idea in my head, I'd always have a hard time getting it out. And these past weeks, the idea has been pistachios, pistachios and MORE PISTACHIOS! The pistachio and strawberry tarts last week did not turn out as good as I was hoping. After a few taste testing, I thought it was... Continue Reading →

It has been ages since I last met friends I got to know through social. Over the weekend, I got together with a few of them and we visited a new éclair café in town. And while I consider my taste buds significantly spoiled after tasting Christophe Adam's salted caramel e'clair, I have to say,... Continue Reading →

I was really torn between developing some new macaron flavours and making sure I manage to serve up some macarons for my guests this coming weekend. Considering my bad baking mojo these past few days, I decided to bet on the safer option. And so I present, once again, my 2 personal favourite flavours -... Continue Reading →
