Now and Officially fionainthekitchen.com

Dear friends,

I have moved to http://www.fionainthekitchen.com/. Hope we will meet there again and here's a sneak preview of the latest update:

Au revoir!


Jogurt Torte

Austrian cake for my austrian prof! It's a biscuit base with a strawberry yogurt mousse. Though prof wanted a sponge base I believe. But he said he liked it and that it tasted like his mum's so that made my new year's eve!

Tried to do some chocolate designs on the strawberry (as Chomel has done) but I think it didn't really look nice :/ Though it was fun! As they put it, the idea is there...

I can't wait for Europe :D

Durian Croquembouche

This long rectangular plate is honestly one of the best investments I have made. It makes these little lumps of delight look so dainty and cute. Seriously, everyone should get a long rectangular plate. (Mine was from ToTT!)

And with a styrofoam cone and some toothpicks, the durian tower is born! Just a little christmas present for my man's family :D

Thanks to today's technology, beautiful things can become gorgeous like that. I love choux pastry. Especially when they poooooof!


Fruit Tarts

Another reason to make fruit tarts! Thanks Serene for helping out, otherwise it'll take more than 6 hours! But all is worth it for these colours. The smiles and the warm hearts are always worth it (:

Keep Calm and Carry On... To Christmas Insane Baking!

Smoked Corn Soup

It was a recent soup-making competition that Chomel and I took part in. The soup was a great one, but unfortunately, the execution wasn't.

The other soups:

We didn't win, but the experience was a great one. Because failure is the mother of success... I've found  myself dwelling quite a lot in the culinary world. Somehow, I've been breathing, sleeping and literally eating food. Enough of corn for now though!

Truth be told, competing in the midst of exams stands on the thin grey line that separates passion and insanity.
