Ma vie à FERRANDI Paris - week 1

Viola I’m now one step closer to my dream but I know there are still a long way to go. I was so excited that I cannot sleep the night before my first day of school. First day of school are generally administrative procedure, school rule and introduce our chef for the next 5 months of school life. Then there are a tour around the school, introduce all the facility and have a look at other classes.

Sunday @ Paris : Marche Bastille

As of now, I have settled down and lived in Paris for 2 weeks. Finally, I have some time to explore this beautiful city. While unlike in Australia or other Asian countries, on Sunday, most shops in Europe are closed except major tourist attractions such as the Louvre. Hence, it was quite a cultural shock when I first landed in Europe that even supermarkets are closed on Sunday.

Japan Trip Day 4 Tokyo, 浅草寺 Sensoji Temple, 合羽橋道具街, Tokyo SkyTree

This is second and the last day we in Tokyo. I was very excited when arrived Asakusa. It is not the first time I went to Asakusa and why am I so excited about it? The answer is I recently found out that about 10 minutes walk away from the famous Asakusa tourist spot - 浅草寺 Sensoji, there are a street full of kitchen appliance such as Baking Supply, Commercial Kitchen Supply and many other speciality store which sell specific product only like all kind of different drinking glasses.

Matcha shortbread 抹茶サブレ

It had been a while since I updated my blog, it doesn't mean I haven't been baking lately; actually I did keep on baking (that how I release my stress). This year had gone so fast, half is now gone and we officially step into the second half of 2015. I have been waiting for a reply from the Pastry school in Paris to get back to my about my application, to be honest I was a bit scared but life goes on and I have tried my best I have no regret.

Spinach Mushroom Sausage Quiche with Goat Cheese

First post in 2015 and it already February, time really flying so quick. During my Christmas time, I went to Singapore and Bangkok with my family and in January I went to Melbourne to watch the Australia Open for the first time. It had been pretty busy at the beginning of the year for all the holiday and catch up with friends. Now I finally have time to update my blog and do some serious cooking/baking. My mum almost thought I gave up baking because I didn’t bake for a month when I come back from Thailand.

Orange Avocado Chocolate Mousse Tart

I’ve been quite stress out with the coming exam, my French lesson (which I’m really behind) and also worrying my budget for Europe next year which make me so tired and exhausted every day and no energy to write any new blog post but I still bake every now and then. Freezing cold winter is finally over and I can feel the spring is on its way to Australia, weather getting warmer which is good news.

Christmas Gift Idea - Chestnut Shaped Chocolate Cake with Crushed Peanut

It had been 3 months since I last post blog, which I feel so ashamed of being lazy. But now getting closer to the end of the year, and it usually become my crazy baking season for the Christmas. Usually I will bake some cake or cookie as Christmas Gift because I think it more sincere to say thank you to the person that I’m giving it to (Plus I do not like present shopping, it kills my brain cells). 

Snack Idea - French Vanilla Cashew Nut

The story start with mum bought a bag of dry roasted cashew nut but then she didn’t want to finish it because it a bit too bland. And as a nice daughter I offered to make some flavour for the nut and that how the whole idea of French Vanilla Cashew But from. French Vanilla nut usually come with almond (maybe coz it call French as French love almond a lot), but as you know all I have in hand is cashew nut but feel free to substitute with any other nut of your favourite.

J'aime Macaron - Red Velvet Macaron

Happy Father’s Day for every father! Today we went to Korean BBQ and then fish market to make some seafood feast for dinner. Weather in Sydney was pretty bad, it starts to become like London – rain and sunny. Remember last year Father’s Day, I made a red velvet cheesecake inspired by the Cheesecake Factory for my dad which was pretty hectic, it took me almost 2 days to make them and use up 6 packs of Cream Cheese, we ended up need to gave the rest to my friends. And this years, I was a bit unprepared for it, so this time I transfer this flavour into macaron for Father’s Day which my dad love it because it not very sweet and he loves cheese a lot.

日本大好き - My First Bento Box

 I always envy so much of the bento box you saw on Japanese drama where mum usually make for their kids at school or wife makes it for husband. And on my recent trip to Japan, I bought some bento making books and found it so interesting and tempted me so much into making a bento box. And here I use the most common bento box dish hamburger steak that I just made and some potato salad and other vegetable to make it look nice and delicious.
