Chewing the Moo: Beef and Puff Pastry


, , , , , ,


I love breakfast. I think from all of the food, I like breakfast the most. Especially on weekends, having breakfast with your love ones during weekend morning is bliss. Imagine having a cup of coffee with a slice of fresh warm toast, butter and a perfect sunny side up, sitting on your kitchen bar, while looking out of the window… yeah my kind of weekend.

Maybe one day I will make a compilation of my favorites breakfast menu and post them here. Or maybe one day I open a bed and breakfast inn somewhere in a picturesque vacation island… Or maybe I open a small restaurant (just like Rachel Khoo’s La petite cuisine a Paris) only selling breakfast.

Snow Drops Cookies


, , , , , , , , , ,


When I was a kid, my mum used to make us a crescent shaped cookie called ‘Putri Salju’ (Indonesian name for Snow White). The cookie is basically a cashew nut cookie that melts in your mouth. It was one of my favorite cookies. I love the crunchy texture of the cookies, the nutty flavor, and how the sugar powder that coats the cookie just melting away the moment you put it in your mouth. Such a happy moment to devour those little angels, well at least until my mum snapped my hand away from the baking tray.

It’s been a long time since the last time I ate those delicious cookies, and I’m craving for it. Continue reading

One of my close friend came to visit me last week, it was not really a visit since she was just happened to be in the city for a day. But she did came and it was a rare occasion, so I thought maybe I should make something special for her.

Porchetta Sandwich


, , , , , , , , , , ,


Early this year, I made a pork belly sandwich, with lots of condiments and vegetables. This time, I promise you that I kept it simple and clean. I was tempted to make this pork sandwich right after I watched a TV show about this shop in Vancouver: Meat and Bread. The shop only sells around 3-4 simple sandwich menus, and one of their signature dishes is this epic-looking Porchetta Sandwich wrapped in a simple ciabatta bread with some salsa verde spread on top.  On one of the scene, there is this part where the guy cut that luscious Pork into small cubes and ‘sprinkle’ the skin on top of pork cubes…at that point I knew I had to make it.
