Culinary meme!

What were you cooking/baking ten years ago?

To tell you the truth, I can't remember any. In fact, I don't think I touch any cookware in my mum's kitchen. Well, if rice and instant noodle can be counted, then yes... I'm proud to say that I'm a good instant noodle chef.

What were you cooking/baking one year ago?

Ahh...I know what to answer for this one. Nathan's 2nd b'day cake and rolled crepes. And, maybe one or two main course recipes. I enjoyed making dessert more than cooking.

Five recipes you know by heart?
  • Steamed chocolate brownies
  • Almod pudding
  • Steamed pork custard
  • Spaghetti
  • Tempura

Five culinary luxuries you would indulge in if you were a millionaire?

  • A culinary tour around the world.
  • Big kitchen with island table in the middle & shiny oven to used
  • Dine-in at Jamie Oliver's restaurant
  • Eat food that contains really-really expensive stuff: truffle mushroom, lobster, alaskan crab, name it
  • An ice cream maker

Five foods you love to cook/bake?

  • Again...steamed chocolate brownies.
  • Anything with lots and lots of mushroom
  • Creamy soup
  • Seafood
  • Shabu-shabu

Five things you cannot/will not eat?

  • Anything that involve cute animals: rabbit, dog, etc.
  • Anything that involve creepy or yucky animals: insects, reptile, etc.
  • Well, now since my ulcer getting worse and worse...anything sour.

Five favorite culinary toys:

  • Spatula
  • Mixer & digital kitchen scale
  • Cookie cutter
  • Lazy Susan
  • Piping Bag & Spuit

Five dishes on your “last meal” menu:'s really hard to anwer. Well, I think if it's my last meal and there are people whose willing to pay for anything that I'm going to eat....then it's a combination of question no. 4 & 5.

Five happy food memories?
  • Baked chocolate pear in KOI gallery
  • Pepperoni pizza during my chicken pox
