the eight macau (10 of 14)

We took our visiting guest chef friend ** Michelin Thierry Drapeau for Sunday yumcha here as he was curious what a *** Michelin Chinese restaurant in Asia was like. So, with four Michelin stars on the table, there was running commentary on every dish and its execution. Service was disappointing. We waited 20mins for our […]

locavore

We were lucky to have secured a table here as the husband heard lots of good things in the chef circle and I neglected to make reservations at Locavore – No.49 on the Asia World’s 50 Best list. We scrambled around to try to get a table at the last minute. They only do one […]

taipei (7 of 8)

A quick weekend in Taipei – my first visit and definitely have to go back to do more fabric shopping at Yongle Fabric market and have to visit all the night markets to see the variations of street food snacks they offer. I was on my husband’s schedule as I played tag along on his […]

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 […]

flourless chocolate cake wolfgang puck recipe

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 […]

golden peakcock macau

Where to get the best Indian food in Macau? Look no further – Golden Peacock in Venetian is a one Michelin starred restaurant with all the regional Indian dishes cooked to perfection. Service is fantastic, I’ve gone with friends with egg, gluten, diary allergies and our server actually knew every single ingredient that went into […]

bombana otto e mezzo macau

So, everyone jokingly calls this restaurant my husband’s “canteen”, as Robuchon once was where he’d dine up to four times a week there by himself. As you can see, my cooking at home can never measure up. We head to Ciak and Otto e Mezzo in Hong Kong whenever we’re in town and have our pre-travel dinner […]

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 […]

akrama restaurant france paris

We had a wonderful dinner here last summer when they still had ** Michelin stars, pity about losing one in this year’s guide. Everything from the service to the food was impeccable and worthy of their two stars when we dined there. The restaurant is intimate and cosy with a straightforward menu and every dish […]
