Day 275 – Moon Cake

As I was strolling the aisles of the Asian Supermarket last week, I noticed multiple versions of a little, beautifully decorated dessert. They were everywhere. Big, small, and different flavours. I'd never seen them before so I did a little research and discovered they were moon cakes, a Chinese pastry filled with a sweet, red… Continue reading Day 275 – Moon Cake

Day 268 – Plantain Crisps

I'm looking after my friend's dog at the moment, the lovely Sascha. She is cute, cuddly, and a little time-intensive: she likes a lot of attention and sometimes it's difficult to get a lot done.

Thanks to the puff pastry class on my Puff the Bakery pastry course the other week, I had a couple of puff pastry sheets in the freezer. In an… Continue reading Day 208 – Cheese twists

Day 166 – Trifle

Before normal life started to shut down, I tried to stay away from having anything food-related as one of my new things. As someone who already actively looked for new foods to eat and make, it felt a little too easy. That's changed over the past four months. My new adventures had to be limited… Continue reading Day 166 – Trifle
