sit back and relax...NOT (Part 2)

And den...on Sunday (yes that last post was all saturday!) it was all about the food!

Syl, Natty and I did a dessert cooking course!

We managed to avoid any sinking souffle moments (a la Sabrina - Audrey Hepburn version of course) and here are the pics for proof. I know it doesn't look very high. We didnt have enough time to bake it, but I promise to practise till I get it very high! We learnt a few prep skills and knife skills and little tricks (like how to whisk without wobbling my butt - i actually like the fact that I am burning calories while I cook...ha). It was a fun way to spend a rainy Sunday and it was delicious!

Vanilla Souffle with caramel sauce

Our chocolate tarts with Chef Zigi

Our apple baskets with raspberry frappe, citrus and chocolate semifreddo and puff pastry biscuit with cinnamon spiced syrup

and den we ate all the desserts we made!!!

...and den earlier that week...

Backstrap, mash, dutch carrots = delish!

...and no more and den for now.

Syl - It's all in the 'macro' focus! I think we might need to limit eating weekends to once a month! or twice? haha

G - Stay away from the PORN dude!

Ken - You sound like a sugar addict! (This is your 1L coke habit replacement?) ;)
