Flashback Friday time!
Someone in the group mentioned matcha (green tea) and how we should throw a Matcha Party. I think it was Thanh who initially started the idea flowing and then Michèle volunteered her house.
Next thing you know, recipes were being bounced around and we had the date set.
Welcome to this recap of the amazing impromptu Matcha Party. I reckon we need another dress up one soon team 🙂
The one and only T Do himself made this light and fluffy Matcha Chiffon Cake.
Azzie the fabulous DD made Matcha Mochi and Matcha Kit Kat (how cool are they?).
The Macaron Queen, Winnie from Eat Play Shop certainly got fancy and playful with her ode to the humble Matcha with these amazing macarons. She made Matcha Macarons and Lime Macarons.
Daisy the ever present Sweet Tooth Fairy made Matcha Brownies (which I originally intended to make) and Matcha Madeleines.
Lianne who makes everything with love (<3) whipped up a Matcha Swiss Roll complete with Azuki Beans (red bean) filling and a Matcha Pound Cake.
Duy & Andrew made cute little mini Matcha Panna Cotta’s whilst the very handsome Wince made Matchamisu (Matcha Tiramisu) 🙂
Macaron Queen, Winnie also made these cute Matcha Cream Puffs (profiteroles).
Daisy also bought some cronuts for us to try.
I of course met the team and shouted Game On! Well, not really, but I blame this madness on Daisy. She stole my lazy Matcha Brownie idea, so I retaliated and made this Matcha Opera Gateau to the partay 😛
The Boy. Oh where do we even begin.
He plated this up. Sous Vide & Bruleed Pineapple, Paillete Feuilletine, Watermelon Cubes & Mariage Frères Smoked Cream sprinkled with Matcha & Sour Plum Powder ala modern Fruit Rojak.
Of course a party isn’t a complete party if there weren’t any savouries!
Michèle put up some really cute Bahn Mi’s and the most addictive pork ribs ever on this planet. If you need the recipe, visit T Do’s blog for Alana Lowe’s Sticky Ribs.
Wince also made Beef Ribs with Fettucine.
There were also Chicken Wings. Because you can never go wrong with Chicken Wings.
So what do you think? Have we inspired you to go forth and create a Matcha dessert (or savoury) dish? Go ahead. Throw a party whilst you’re at it. It’ll be fun 🙂
omg matcha madness! Your matcha opera gateau looks amazing. The only thing missing from the modern fruit rojak is a heap of toothpicks. lol
Like a porcupine toothpick dessert thing!
100% I would take an invite to this party over one that was peanut butter themed. FOR SERIOUS.
A PB themed one would be amazing!!!!
I love matcha! This looks like an amazing party. And I can even think of things I could add to it that isn’t there already!
I know.. so many possibilities!
What mountains of matcha magnificence! A fun and very tasty idea indeed guys 🙂 I love matcha icecream- so rich and creamy!
That’s what we missed! Ice-cream!!
oh you, you always fret but always come up with the goods. Damn that creation was good!
I know! I need to make it again!
Your matcha opera gateau was amazing! I’m glad you didn’t make brownies, would’ve missed out on that beautiful creation!
Oh shucks! You are the macaron queen after all! I’m glad you went!
you melbournians sure know how to throw a party. I want to join! hahah
We sure do!
I was so envious when I saw Instagram pix of all the matcha goodies! Can i please please please come to the next event? I’ll make… green tea =)
Okay.. but we’ve already done matcha.. will have to be a different theme!
By far one of the beest parties we’ve had this year 🙂 It was so so so good everything was green, matcha and delicious well except my madelines they had some issues 😛 And stop talking about the brownies haha cuz I then pressured you to make something more spectacular!
You should pressure me more!! 😛
