This all started when I was trying to buy a high fibre bread loaf at BreadTalk. Perhaps I have been traveling too much and am getting out of touch with the local market but  I was shocked by the fact that they are now pricing their loaf by the slices. I was charged $2.80 for […]

I uploaded the photos and recipe of this addictive cookie, with, I swear, every intention of writing the post and publishing it during my travels. I was counting on the sleepless jet lagged nights to get those brain juice to flow again… Alas, unfortunately (or fortunately), this time I adapted to the wild swings in […]

As the last pineapple tart gets depleted from the ubiquitous red lidded plastic tub, it becomes official, Chinese New Year is over.

I was first introduced to Gianduja when we were traveling from Chamonix to Torino. During our 2 hour drive to Torino, our driver had enthusiastically recommended us to try the gelato at Gelateria Fiorio where, in his opinion, the best gelato in Torino can be found.  He had also specifically suggested that I try the […]

The Red Velvet cake, to me, is quintessentially American. I became especially fascinated by it after I learnt about how the red colour of the cake was traditionally developed.
