There’s a place in the very heart of Singapore, where little hands hold small spoons and big dreams sizzle on fire ranges. This is no ordinary classroom; it’s a gourmet paradise for the kids, famous world-over as Singapore’s best children cooking school.
When you bake cookies, you’re not creating a treat; rather, you’re combining science and creativity into a great treat. The process of combining the ingredients, measuring the temperatures, and following the recipe is all part of the fun. When you finally take your cookies out of the oven, you’ll be rewarded with a delicious treat that you can enjoy with family or friends.
Date nights are an essential part of any relationship. They offer an opportunity to reconnect, have fun and create lasting memories.
While traditional date night activities like dinner at a fancy restaurant or going to the cinema can still be enjoyable, sometimes it’s good to break the routine and try something new.
This article presents eight unique date night activities that will add excitement and variety to your couple’s time.
Want to learn a new skill from an expert or looking for ways to improve yourself in the comfort of your own home? For me, my 2023 new year resolution goal is to learn how to bake good bread. The very basic thing in life that I always wanted to achieve. I used to do lots of home bakes but have been putting them on hold for a long time as my bakes were uninspiring and I didn’t know how to take them to the next level. I am so thrilled to discover the BBC Maestro courses.
If you are looking quick and healthier ways to cook your food, then steaming food is one of the best cooking methods of all. It helps to retain the nutritional value of food by conserving the fibre, colour, texture and flavour of vegetables. It also helps in preserving the water-soluble B & C vitamins, potassium, phosphorus and zinc.
Do remember that steaming is not just only for vegetables and fish! There are plenty of ways to cook a meal using steam! You can also steam a cake/cupcake, dim sum, chicken and many more! Do check out my recipes: steam rose bun, niao gao, rice cake, seabass, sponge cake.
A good cutting board is just like having a best friend in the kitchen! With the perfect surface for chopping, slicing or dicing and also attractive enough to double up as a serving board! Stellar has launched a collection of beech wood cutting boards that are the best of both worlds!
Fish Pie is one of Mr K’s favourite meals and he was thrilled to learn he could even make his own fish pie! This is an easy fish pie recipe that does not require many ingredients. This is because we are using Schwartz Fish Pie sauce. This quick and easy pour over sauce comes with everything we need for the fish. It is a thick and creamy sauce with white wine, parsley and lemon that is enough for 4 servings.
Before we baked the fish pie, I cooked the carrot and potatoes to make a mash. Boil the carrot and potato until it is soft to mash. Then add milk, butter, cheddar cheese and pepper into the mash. Set it aside to cool down. Once it is cold, place the mash into a piping bag with a star nozzle to pipe the mash.
Recently, I came across the SCANPAN CTX range which combines luxurious, sleek design with function & performance in the kitchen. The Raven-Black non-stick interior elegantly compliments the satin finish exterior.
This CTX range showcases a patented ceramic titanium non-stick surface allowing use of any utensil, including metal utensils. SCANPAN’S GreenTek coating is 100% free from PFOA and PFOS chemicals. It has a 7 layer construction for optimum heat conduction.
Are you looking to create a retro style kitchen? Then look no further! Prestige have a new range of vintage kitchenware featuring classic designs and timeless styles with beautiful hues of blue or red. I have received this beautiful blue 19cm saucepan with tube handle and tube knob.
My husband and I enjoy eating Thai food but I have yet to learn how to cook it from scratch. Normally, I use ready-made packet sauces. Thai food is famous for its balance of sweet, sour, salty and hot flavours. One of my favourite dishes is Tom Yum soup. It is a clear soup base and very spicy! I love the hit of the spiciness.
Last weekend was my son’s birthday and just days before, he requested to have a batman cake for his birthday. So I thought long and hard. I did google it but I found that they are just too difficult for me to even attempt it. So I opted for a small and simple Batman cake that only required minimal effort. It still took me over 3 hours.
I love spicy food, especially Thai and Korean food and I’m always partial to a curry. When I was asked to try out Chancham Caribbean products, I didn’t hesitate and agreed immediately! I had tried to cook mild Caribbean food before and my children enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to trying Chancham out.
I received two jars of Chancham marinades (Hot Jerk and Zingy Chilli) and a bottle pepper sauce. So I decided to use my Pyrex slow cooker to stew the meats for the Hot Jerk sauce and separately for the Zingy Chilli sauce.
OXO Good Grips have recently launched a new colourful range of spatulas that helps brighten your kitchen and colour your life! They are made from silicone and are heat resistant up to 315°C, meaning that they won’t discolour, warp or melt. Each spatula features a soft, comfortable, non-slip grip and are safe for coated or non-stick cookware and bakeware. However, the downside is that the handle does attract dust though!
We all love a Saturday lie-in and a bit of family time together! Unfortunately this morning, both kids decided that today was not a day for lie-ins and woke us up by jumping on us in bed! We managed to fight off this onslaught momentarily but the final straw came when the postman knocked on the door so we all got up.
I was so excited when I was introduce to these GOOD Hemp Products. We always love to try new food products and they are produced in Britain – Devon in fact! They produce products from hemp seeds including GOOD OIL, a 100% cold-pressed hemp seed oil, GOOD HEMP Milk alternative, and GOOD SEED which are shelled hemp seeds. All of their products are 100% natural and are suitable for vegetarians, vegans and contain no allergens. I have received these three products for review and this is what I think of them:
