Luxbite Review (Macarons and other desserts) @ Toorak Road, South Yarra

“The Kaya Toast even had a tiny piece of smooth butter in the centre of the filling… It was the best.. the flavour was intense and it was much nicer than a real kaya toast… seriously… just think of 2 really rich and crunchy kaya toasts and compressed that down into a bite size morsel.. that was what the macaron was”

Fried Radish Cake – Chai Tau Kueh (Chai Tow Kway) Recipe

I’ve always loved Chai Tau Kueh and there aren’t many places where you can find this delectable dish. I’m of a Hokkien background and for some reason, I know this dish as Kueh Kak. The Boy however is Teow Chew (and insists that this is called CTK),...

Cafe Vue 401 @ St Kilda Road, Melbourne

  Hello all! I apologise on my M.I.A status for the last week. It’s been a crazy year end at work (and still is), and by the time I get home, all I want to do is go to bed (sometimes with no dinner!) Gasp…  It’s also the time of the year of social...

Seek Your Ultimate Pleasure with Magnum Temptation

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang When  Magnum first asked me  to write about my most indulgent fantasy, I couldn’t decide on the topic! I mean, first of all it’s about indulgence and secondly, it’s a fantasy! Oh, where do I begin?! I was torn between a dream...

Melba’s Breakfast Review @ Langham Hotel, Southbank

Boss lady (she hates that term) was going away on maternity leave… and we requested to go to Melba’s for the breakfast buffet! Yayy! I was being regaled with tales of yonder (last year where they ate so much they had to be wheeled back to work)… So I...

Izakaya Den Review @ Russell Street, Melbourne

After the Taste of Melbourne this year, a bunch of bloggers and twitterers decided to pay a visit to Izakaya Den as they performed so well in the event. The wonderful ingénue (she might choke on this a bit, so I’ll add, for good measure, chotto!) author behind...

Hako Review @ Flinders Lane, Melbourne

  HR ladies to eat, away we go!   KM was leaving and we had decided to pop over to Hako down the road for a farewell lunch. Busting My Chops had recommended the place as she recalled it as being worthwhile and reasonable for the price… When we got there, we were...

 Midweek winter meals made easy this week with @anjum_anand's #SpiceTailor sauces! I made a big batch of Butter Chicken on Sunday and it's been so convenient to pack and take to work and and so to prep for dinner! Served with crispy garlic naan, life complete ❤ #anjumanand #butterchicken #wintermeals  I bought these little beauties for @zeboy last week as he has been working so hard lately (and yes, he did share these with me ). Great desserts as usual from @pierrickboyer and his LPG team! I still remember when I first discovered his creations years ago. When I worked around the corner and my work mate and I would treat ourselves to a slice of his cake and go, "OMG! There is gold foil on this!". That was nearly 8 years ago! #lepetitgateau #lpg Edit: just to be clear, these are new cakes pictured! I was reminiscing another cake which also had gold foil :)  It's only Monday? Here's how I'm going to fight the blues away. Brut me up, baby!  Only a couple of weeks to go before the #keymoments by @taltarni comes to a close! Don't miss out, I would really love for you to win! #taltarni #brut
 Good morning good morning good morning!! We're not gonna let this horrid headache that's been bugging us since yesterday stop us, are we? Here's my new found addiction. Bagels for breakfast (well, wagyu burger for @zeboy). My bagel came smothered with cream cheese, spinach, keiserfleich, fried Egg and house made beetroot relish! #WednesdayBreakfastClub #bagels  Ready for some Super Mario action? This is it, right here! Oozy poached eggs on a bed of Mushrooms served on multi grain toast @oneorigin_specialtycoffee. Post now up (link on profile).  Today, I made a Yogurt Lemon Thyme Tart. The tart base was made with almond meal, thyme, lemon zest and butter. The house smelled amazing. It didn't set properly (slightly runny in the middle) but it still tasted amazing! I got the idea from the amazing @julesfood who made a version of this with Rosemary! I'm going to herb up all my tart bases from now on! I also made candied lemons to decorate the tart  #candiedlemon #lemontart #glutenfree #weekendbaking

 Lemon & Thyme Tart by @msihua . Smells amayyyzing...  #lemontart  Found a great way of reusing our empty Mariage Frères tea canisters! #homeideas #mariagefreres  Thanks @msihua for the two delicious cakes from Le Petit Gâteau. The Black Beauty was my favourite. It's a chestnut sponge base, blend of milk and dark chocolate mousse, blackcurrant cremeaux, vanilla creme brulee inserts, dark chocolate glaze, topped with chestnut puree. Nice work @pierrickboyer
 Eating Out: Roasted banana with bacon lardons, smoked scamorza, arepa, tomato marmalade, Brazil nut shavings, chili & coriander salsa at MJR TOM. #mjrtom #breakfast  Thinking of some spaghetti with sous vide egg and grated parmesan and shaved winter truffles. This should take away the winter blues. #homecooking  Happy weekend! Hoping for some sunshine this weekend
