Lemongrass and Kaffir Lime Leaf Mousse with Mango Coulis

Again with the tropical flavours! I'm sorry (not really) but they're just so darn good. Even though it's still miserable and rainy and a little cold here, I want bright and fresh and light in my desserts! And I know that New York had snow the other day and some people are still shovelling their driveways, but the calendar says it's spring, so I'm going with that.

Earl Grey and Dark Chocolate Cream Puffs

I love tea. I've always loved tea. I drink tea every single morning and have done since I was a little kid. Back then, I used to drink it out of brightly coloured plastic cups. Now I drink out of an actual mug, but everything else is basically the same. I like my routines, probably a bit too much, and my morning tea routine hasn't changed in about 12 years.

Kalamansi, Coconut, and Passion Fruit Verrines

Recently, I've been drawn to the tropical and exotic flavours of Asia. This may be because the flavours are somewhat new to me and therefore exciting. It may be because during these cold months, I need something to brighten up my days.

Or it may be because I am going to the Philippines in 5 and a half weeks and I can't stop thinking about it!!

Multigrain Seeded Bread

Read Article →

I think this may be the very first healthy recipe on this blog. I mean, this is a dessert blog so you better not be coming here looking for any healthy recipes in the first place, but it's nice to be surprised once in a while. This bread is a hearty loaf filled with all kinds of seeds and oats. There is a ton of texture in this bread, along with a nutty flavour from the toasted white sesame seeds. This bread would be wonderful alongside a big winter stew or topped with a fried egg or even just slathered with some good quality butter.

Passion Fruit, White Chocolate, and Hibiscus Plated Dessert

Read Article →

This is what "playing around in the kitchen" means to me.

Plated desserts are not something I know a lot about, at all. I learned a little bit about them in school, but I work in a patisserie, not a restaurant, so I've had zero real world experience with them. Plating is hard, man! You can see a plate and think, "Oh man, that's so beautiful, that doesn't look too hard to do" but then you try it yourself and it just seems....clunky and awkward. But it's still a lot of fun to come up with ideas, draw them out, and execute them!
