  • The Glasshouse toasts

    The Glasshouse at Chijmes

    The Glasshouse first came to my attention on Instagram with its beautiful feed of three images. The first, a covered area of work in progress… I was curious. The second, a row of three toasts topped with yummy things… definitely interested! The third photo in their feed, back then, was...
  • Fine Wines

    Fine Wines. French Wine. Did Someone say “Wine”?

    When invited by Fine Wines to participate in their Introduction to French Wines class, I could not resist. I’ve been drinking wine for 15 years now and thought I knew quite a bit about it already. The class was attended mostly by novice wine drinkers and PK, our instructor for...

  • Totally Cool Szechuan Yakitori and Cocktails at CHIKIN Bar

    If you’re after a groovy vibe, cool ambience, good food and killer cocktails, try heading to CHIKIN Bar on Bukit Pasoh Road. We were recently invited to a tasting there and even though it was only 5.30pm and the place wasn’t quite pumping just yet, it was an excellent...
  • Chef's Table risotto

    Chef’s Table Friday Lunches

    Of the many places I’ve eaten in Singapore, Chef’s Table still remains one of my all-time favourites. Chef Stephan Zoisl and his team are truly amazing and earlier this year, we had the pleasure of talking to him about how it all began. When Chef Stephan invited me to taste their...
  • Gravlax Recipe

    Gravlax, One of our Favourite, Easy, Swedish Dishes

    One of Peter’s favourite Swedish dishes is Gravlax and he makes this frequently. While I’ve always said, “it’s so easy to make yourself”, this was the first time I actually did it myself. And I can confirm… it’s easy! All you need is a bit of time. When we have...
  • T2 Tea Chai

    Making Warm, Fragrant Chai Tea Without any Fuss.

    I have always loved the warm spice and sweet comfort of a good chai tea recipe. This has come in so many forms for me, the earliest of which is masala chai, drunk while eating a South Indian meal (with my hands) at Little India’s Komala Vilas. The most distinct...
  • Nouri

    Nouri, “Crossroads Cooking” Influenced by the World

    Nouri is a wonderful dining destination that quietly opened its doors on the 17th of June. Quietly, I say because we went a month ago for dinner while they were still in preview mode. They had respectfully asked us not to post anything on social media until they were open....
  • T2 Tea

    Matcha and the Language of Love

    I realise that this will date AND reveal me as a hopeless romantic. However, let it also been known that in my 20+ years of marriage, my expectations of romanticism have been leveled… and far below my teenage fantasies. Still, let’s talk about T2 Tea, their matcha recipe and...
