Ta Daa! :)

Thanks to an unexpected surge in the amount of free meals I've scored lately in response to restaurant reviews I've written, my recent successful attempts to home-cook hawker food, the many cheesecakes and various baked goods I have sold/ used for barter/ given as gifts over time, constant requests from friends and family for tried-and-tested recipes and just the fact that I love love LOVE food with an all-consuming passion, I have now, after months of mulling over the idea, finally started a food blog! :)

So welcome! Happy reading, happy cooking, happy sharing and may the devotion to all things delicious unite us all!


  1. Fabulous! I look forward to testing your dishes!

  2. Sam I love you! Have been thinking of starting a blog myself but don't know if I have the dedication... I'll put you top of my bookmarked list of food blogs! Keep cooking babe, I look forward to trying some of your recipes! Oh and by the way great photos at the top... do i see pastel de nata or something similar?? I do live in portugal! xxxxx

  3. Hello Anonymous! You didn't leave a name so I haven't got a clue who you are, but from the way you sound and the fact that you're in Portugal I'm guessing... Louise? :) Haha!

    Those are actually Chinese egg tarts typically served in dim sum... similar to Portuguese pastel de nata, except they're more a firm eggy custard than milky/creamy, less sweet and never caramelised on top. Also the pastry's not as puffy :) Funnily enough Portuguese egg tarts are a huge craze in Asia even though we have our own version!

    So how've you been (if you really are Louise)? :)
