Happy Holidays, everyone! I’ve been looking for a decadent dessert to serve with a special holiday meal, and have decided that this would be perfect for New Year’s Eve. The sweet, creamy ginger custard which stars in this dish is beautifully offset with the bitterness of black tea, the grapefruit provides a refreshing, sour bite […]

Earl Grey & Orange Shortbread Pinwheel Cookies

March 10th, 2013

It’s almost spring! And with that comes all sorts of wonderful things; people shed their heavy coats and tired faces, plants emerge, and there’s a general feeling of lightness in the air. I always associate afternoon tea with spring – not sure why, because it’s lovely any time of the year. Perhaps it’s because afternoon […]

Helping out with my dear friend A’s wedding has been keeping me busy, and one of the best things about celebrating these momentous occasions is seeing all the people they bring together.

Lemon & Olive Oil Cupcakes with Black Truffle Buttercream

May 22nd, 2012

Three weekends ago, I co-hosted a French-Mexican fusion dinner with my friend OH.

I’ve had black truffle macarons at one of my favourite patisseries […]

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 […]

Candied Kumquat Ice Cream with Crushed Salted Pistachios & Dark Chocolate

January 22nd, 2012

Kumquats are the grape-sized runts of the citrus litter and an eccentric fruit, for, lacking much but bitter seeds on the inside, it’s the sweet, citrusy-astringent skin that is meant to be eaten. Despite the absence of tasty flesh, their irresistibly miniature stature ensures that whenever I see them, I cannot avoid picking some up, […]

Lemon Cranberry Financiers

May 14th, 2011

I was going through my freezer the other day, rearranging its contents to fit some new purchases, when I came upon a bag of frozen cranberries. Now I know that it’s spring and we should be revelling in all the fresh spring fruit in our markets, but I’m a big fan of the puckery power […]
