Caramel popcorn ice cream

March 31, 2015

One of the greatest pleasures of owning an ice cream maker is making up flavour combinations and trying them out. So what do you get when you cross 2 carnival favourites? Caramel popcorn ice cream! MmmmMmmm… I used the ratios of a basic vanilla custard recipe, steeped the milk with popcorn to extract the flavour and […]

Adriano Zumbo Pâtissier at The Star

September 3, 2013

Sydney has many big names in food, but Adriano Zumbo has piqued my curiousity more than others. He burst onto the scene during the first season of Masterchef and since then has become the much feared ‘dessert master’ for many pressure tests on the show. His popularity (or notoriety) on the show then became a […]

Dooley’s Ice Cream – The Ice Cream Tub

I hope everyone has had as relaxing a long weekend as I did. A group of friends and I escaped the Melbourne heat wave in search for some respite down at the surf coast. The picturesque Apollo Bay provided this in spades. We spent our days lazily splashing about in the refreshingly cold surf, pointing […]

My good run of regular posting has come to a rather abrupt end in February, and for once I’m not going to blame it on being busy. Although it has actually been a busy month with Chinese New Year (CNY) celebrations, a going away and numerous birthdays, including my beloved father’s; that hasn’t been the […]

It’s no coincidence that Malaysian food has seen a surge in popularity around the same time Poh Ling Yeow and Adam Liaw found success both on and after Masterchef. I’m willing to bet that there’s at least a little bit of cause and effect going on. It’s actually a little surprising that it took so […]

Young coconut juice is one of the most refreshing drinks you can have on a hot day. Just go to any tropical and sub tropical region for proof of this – it’s one of their staple drinks. So can you just imagine how awesome it would be in frozen dessert form? But surprisingly, it’s not […]

One of the best things about summer is the fruits and vegetables that come into season. Some of my all time favourites become available: cherries, berries, grapes, watercress, avocado, cherries, lychees, watermelon, beans, eggplant, sweetcorn, mango, cherries, longan, rambutan…I could go on and on. Loving the onslaught of summer fruit and veg! The only downside […]

We’re finally here! The last day of 2012, and I’m so excited the year is coming to an end. Don’t get me wrong, 2012 has been an amazing year, but I just can’t wait for 2013 to start. The past year has been full of big events and traveling – 9 weddings, 3 overseas trips […]
