I didn’t feel like having bacon in my scones and soaking in the animal fat, so I doubled the cheese in this earlier recipe. This yielded 25 scones that were moist and dense. It’s similar to a Bacon Cheddar Scones recipe I posted, with some modifications.   I am back practising how to take better photos […]

Baking is really not my forte because of my lack of precision and I have always relied on boxed brownie mix, before stumbling upon this adapted recipe and with trial and error from this success flourless chocolate cake recipe I’ve made several times. I started to bake a little more so I could have subjects […]

indian cooking class 1 (13 of 16)

The butter chicken dish is one of the husband’s and my favourite dishes. I of course made the pilgrimage to Moti Mahal in New Dehli where it was created. And I was thrilled for Food Travel Live to teach me how to make the dish. The extensive range of spices is still daunting, but hopefully […]

indian cooking class 1 (1 of 2)

The privilege of having friends who are amazing cooks – is better than being married to a chef because chef hardly does the cooking at home! As Julia Child once said “People who love to eat (and cook) are always the best people.” Most of my tribe who loves to eat, also love to cook […]

smitten kitchen lazy pizza dough recipe

I have been practising for quite a few bakes now and have finally found the right footwork on baking a pizza in our very basic oven, well the husband calls it more than a grill than an oven with a maximum temperature of 230ºC, so we’ll never get the right consistency of a Napolitana style […]

I’ve done this a few times, but I think I have finally found the winning formula. This is based on Wolfgang Puck’s favourite chocolate cake recipe. I am still working on my photography classes and food styling, and couldn’t quite decide on which shot was better. What do you think? I still have to learn how […]

blueberry muffins styling

I am trying to get the hang of this baking thing, but also because I am working on my Skillshare class and applying Pinch of Yum’s Tasty Food Photography tips, I highly recommend it, it’s worth the investment. Still getting the hang of my new DSLR and finally getting down to learning how to use the […]

I’ve made this twice now and cannot believe how easy it is with just 3 ingredient for a flourless chocolate cake: Sugar, eggs, chocolate bars. I was looking up recipes on Pinterest and found Girl Gone Gourmet‘s instructions the easiest and most comprehensive. Great for breakfast or tea time over a Moka brew of some tea. […]

We’re still enjoying the festivities of the 15 days of Lunar New Year, and crabs isn’t a dish we had at the dinner table in our family because crabs in Cantonese “hai” is a homonym for slippery and we definitely don’t want a slippery year ahead! Here’s mum’s recipe for Chilli crabs, I am still […]

breakfast

It’s one of the busiest days of the year for a chef – along with Christmas and New Year’s eve and people never stop asking what everyone’s plans are. We never really celebrated Valentine’s Day so it isn’t a big deal for me and I used to chastised chef for buying flowers on the most […]
