I am convinced that friends who cook and eat together, stay together. Making friends in Macau has always been a challenge for me here, but after four years of endurance I’ve finally found my tiny tribe of friends I can count on one hand. Check out C’s Kitchen is full of wonderful and easy recipes […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Chinese New Year in a couple of weeks and what better way to celebrate with a pohpiah party – the hokkien version of spring rolls- and always a welcome dish for big parties. Well, the thing about cooking alongside Mum is everything is agak agak (Malay word to guess/approximately) style and there is never an end […]

One of my favourite cuisines is Thai food – always fresh, sweet, tart and savory at the same time, throw in the fresh chillies and it’s a real party in the mouth. Plus, the ingredients involve lots of fresh vegetables to balance out the coconut milk heavy gravy. And of course we all know that […]
