October 24th, 2016

Need some treats in a hurry? This quick and easy recipe will have you ready for visitors in no time. Earlier this year General Mills sent me a few boxes of the cereals they’d relaunched with all-natural colours and flavours, and this was the very first recipe I tried. It turned out to be a […]

Fizzy Champagne Truffles

January 15th, 2014

We’re only at the beginning of 2014, but so far it’s been a lovely year. And contrary to general expectation, things haven’t slowed down at all since the holidays. I’m friends with many January babies which means countless celebrations, and I’ve just begun a new position at work. As nature would have it, I mark […]

Dark Chocolate, Brown Butter & Pistachio Cookies with Sea Salt

August 29th, 2013

It took me a few tries to get to my ideal cookie. I like them chewy on the inside, with a slightly crispy edge – and they should be thin-ish, not thick and cakey. These have the perfect balance of thickness and chewiness, sugar and salt – and the browned butter adds a slightly nutty […]

Flourless Chocolate Cake with Raspberries & White Chocolate Confetti Wrap

June 1st, 2012

Ever since I saw it in Citrus and Candy, I’ve been wanting to make Damien Pignolet’s Eve’s Chocolate Cake. I believe in letting your ingredients be the stars of a dish – and with only four ingredients, his recipe does just that. So how did I get from that chocolate cake, which is more of […]

Meringue Squares Two Ways

April 14th, 2012

I thought, since I’m Asian, that the curse of Friday the 13th did not apply to me. Little did I know that the 14th, an unlucky number in Chinese culture, was sneaking up from behind to attack. Somewhere between 12:30 and 2:30 am, my purse and phone were stolen from a club. And today has […]

A Different Kind of Currency

March 30th, 2012

One-day pop-up store by chocolatier and “Purveyor to the Royal Danish Court” Anthon Berg served up confections marked with good deeds and promises instead of monetary prices. In order to purchase a box of chocolate, customers “checked out” by pledging the corresponding deed to a friend or family member. I love seeing these kinds of […]

Sweet, Tart, Hot – Raspberry Chili Chocolate Hearts

February 13th, 2012

I’m not a big Valentine’s Day fan – at least in the usual, book a restaurant, get flowers and/or other gifts, be surrounded by other people going through the whole charade way. I do, however, enjoy any excuse to do something a little bit special or out of the ordinary. And because I speak the […]
