  • Angel Floss, the Stuff Sweet Dreams are Made Of

    It’s ok, you don’t have to hide it. I smile too when I see fairy floss (or cotton candy to some). I remember well this magical ball of spun sugar from my childhood. Even to this day if I happen to buy some for my kids, I find myself...
  • They’re out! The Cookbook Club Competition Round 1 Results

    It was Saturday evening, the 19th of November 2016 when our five teams met up for an epic battle in Round 1 of the Cookbook Club Competition (read our previous article here). We had chosen to cook from David Thomson’s book Thai Food, a thick compendium, gorgeously covered in Thai silk, filled with advice and anecdotes...
  • The Cookbook Club Competition

    It started easily enough. A random WhatsApp message between a group of friends suggesting that we try a Cookbook Club. What a great idea! We are a highly social bunch here in Singapore so an idea like this would work well. Basically a potluck with friends but each of us cooking...
  • A Novice’s Guide: Making Your Own Sourdough Bread at Home

    We had brought sourdough starter over with us about 5 years ago. We got our starter from my husband’s brothers who have their own business in Australia making the best sourdough pizzas from their custom-made, wood-fired oven. (Well worth a try if you’re in Sydney – they cater and will...
  • Flavour Notes: Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Tasting 1

    From ice cream van runs in the blazing summer heat, to late-night binging after that awful breakup, to a quick wine and chocolate pick-me-up after the kids have gone to bed. Chocolate is at once the most familiar of childhood ice cream flavours, the most comforting of sweet treats,...
  • Advertising, Banking and the Art of Chocolate Making in Vietnam – Marou Chocolate

    Founded in 2011, Marou is a French-Vietnamese bean-to-bar maker of fine chocolate. Co-founders Vincent Mourou and Samuel Maruta are French expats in Ho Chi Minh City who left former lives in advertising and banking respectively to pursue their curiousity for good chocolate. Like other bean-to-bar outfits around the world,...
  • Perk Coffee, a Passion for Life, Love and Fresh Roasted Coffee

    Take a 20-something law school graduate from Australia, send him on a six month trip around the world and you’ll find him in Kenya 10 years later with 12,000 acres of wheat. Add another 6 years and you find him as a coffee ambassador with a brand new startup in Singapore delivering...
  • Bench at Dapper Coffee

    Dapper Coffee

    It was over a year and a half ago and perhaps it was all the wood panelling and old lanterns but I’m pretty sure that crusty old sailors never got coffee this good! One could turn their nose up at the hodge podge of bits and pieces. I have...
  • Chye Seng Huat Hardware coffee and friand

    Chye Seng Huat Hardware

    Today I revisited Chye Seng Huat Hardware. It was 2013 when I last was there. Back then it was all the rage, with every other person who was talking about coffee also talking about CSHH. But who could blame them. Home to Papa Palheta, one of the best coffee roasters on the...
