I hope you are all doing well^^.

Hari Raya celebration is still going, and we also baked macarons and other cakes during the festive period! The flavours are Belgium chocoalte, Caramel, Japanese green tea, Raspberry ganache and Vanilla macarons. Macaron making can be quite tedious and time-consuming, but it’s also fun to make and it feels accomplished when they are ready on a tray like this!

I also baked Japanese Cookie choux for some event. Both children and adults liked this cream puffs very much. I hope to bake them again soon!

Our 2016 Christmas Lesson #1. is Choux de Noel, a Japanese style cookie cream puff in wreath shape filled with earl grey tea creme patissiere (custard cream) and pistachio chantilly. We will decorate it with some strawberries and blueberries.

The key for this class is to make cream puff grow nicely, and you will be learning some tips to make it successful. Hope everyone’s choux becomes nice shape^^!

The crunchy cookie on top has a hint of cinnamon so that the combination of tea x cinnamon spice will remind you of hot chai and Christmas spice cookies and cakes.

September & October 2016 Class Schedule*

Hi there!

August passed very fast for me. The exciting Rio Olympic games is about to be finished. I was supporting Japanese players and also Malaysian players every night and morning… I especially liked the swimming part! In the meantime, my daughter had a long school holiday and despite us planning to do things with her, our family fell sick one by one… from either fever or food poisoning during her entire holiday^^; So we ended up watching the Olympic games and doing some non-physical activities in and around our house. In any case, it was an interesting summer holiday for me and I am glad my family is well now. Nothing beats staying healthy!

I would like to post September & October 2016 class schedule today, as I will be going back to Japan in the middle of October to early November. Summer is ending and autumn is coming, and I would like to introduce a couple of new yummy autumn recipes. Let’s enjoy the apple fiesta in the next two months ^^*!
