Cheese Move

My family just loves "CHEESE". A normal 500g packet of shredded cheese can't even last in my fridge for 3 weeks. That's how fast cheese move in my family.

This is the size that I usually get ... 2 kg shredded chedder cheese. The usual brand that i used are out of stock, so will need to make do with any brand now.

Now I'll need to observe how fast this packet of cheese run out ?

Opening ceremony : 5 Nov 10

Chocolate Chiffon

I was craving for Chocolate cake, so today i got my hand on this. Though I should have gone for a rich moist chocolate one, well ... I'll be back.

6 egg yolks
1 tsp chocolate paste
35g castor sugar
110g plain flour
1/4 tsp bicarbonate soda

6 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
35g castor sugar

* If not using semi sweet chocolate, you could change the sugar back to total 100gm

  1. Melt (A) over double boiler. Remove from double boiler and let it cool down.
  2. Add (B) into the cooled down chocolate and mix until well combined
  3. Beat egg whites until frothy, add cream of tartar and sugar and beat till stiff peak
  4. Fold 1/2 of the egg whites into chocolate mixture gently with a rubber spatula until just blended.
  5. Pour the balance cholocate mixture into chocolate mixture and continue to fold in gently
  6. Pour the batter into a chiffon and bake it for 40min at 180c

1 egg
30g caster sugar

* 30g unsalted butter for frying the pancake

  1. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar with a wooden spoon and leave to one side
  2. Crack the egg into a bowl, add it to the milk and whisk them together.
  3. Pour the milk and egg mixture into the flour and beat them and gently fold in the blueberries (if any) taking care not to crush them
  4. Over a medium heat, melt the quarter of the butter in a large frying pan. When the butter begins to bubble, you are ready to start cooking

I was window shopping at City Square last Sat (10 Jul), managed to snap some picture about this Record Breaking Event for the longest swiss roll. After the event the swiss roll are sold S$10 and the proceed goes to charity. I didn't stay thru' the event, cos need to pick my daughter up from her class.

Something Fishy

Last Wed 7 Jul, dinner treat from our head office CAO at Greenwood Fish Bistro

I was quite skeptical about having fish for my dinner, cos I'm not a fishy person and i don't eat fish. Anyway, while walking into the dinning area, we passed by the market area... quite fishy smell though. When we reached our dinner table, no more fishy smell. Instead we got compensated back with the delicious food...

For sure, i didn't order fish.
