Prosciutto is such an expensive treat in Singapore, and the once or twice I tried it, I really was not impressed. So, despite the fact the original Paul Hollywood recipe uses prosciutto, I just couldn't be bothered to use them in my loaves. When I was in Europe I while back, I decided to bring...

Somewhere in the middle of the week, I got this sudden craving for some foccacia. And since I have been baking most of my bread sans commercial yeast, I decided to give sourdough foccacia a try. But it's so hard to find sourdough foccacia recipe online, in metric sale. So finally I decided to just... Continue Reading →

You can't really go wrong with the classics, and nothing says classics like the quiche Lorraine. I always said I will not bake for the next potluck, but somehow I always do. And sometimes, more than one, or two, items! Since I figured I'll be in over my head with our Christmas Eve dinner this... Continue Reading →

It was Epicurean Market time, which means lots of cheese, wine and good food. In the spirit of sharing our "loot", my friends and I had a "cheese and wine" evening. And that is always a great reason to bake my favourite savoury loaf. This time, the loaf was filled with pancetta and Gruyere picked... Continue Reading →

And in the spirit of volunteering, I decided to bake up some of my favourite garlic rolls to see if "they" qualify. These rolls are baked using the $5K starter dough from a... Continue Reading →

And as much as I love the spinach quiche, I miss a good ol' classic quiche Lorraine.┬áSo, here it is. Fully packed with bacon and onions (boy, I love onions!) and a... Continue Reading →

Quiches are delicious. It's a melange of cream, cheese and butter. Loads of butter. Which is also why it is not something you can eat regularly. So I always delight in opportunities to bake up a quiche for dinner parties. I was torn between a broccoli and cheddar quiche or a spinach and Gruyere and... Continue Reading →

Every year as the Lunar New Year approaches, new cookies vie for the spot of the "cookie of the year" position. Past winners were concoctions such as the green pea cookie, the fried crabstick (technically not a cookie) and fried arrowroot chips (again, not a cookie). This year, it looks like the award goes to... Continue Reading →

For the past 2 weeks when I got to spend my holidays back in my parents' house, breakfast was always a much anticipated affair. Every morning, when I came downstairs, I will be greeted by a table full of different types of bread, "kueh" (Asian snacks), noodles and even cookies. My parents really made a... Continue Reading →
