Saturday Preview

Thanks to Pei Lin who took the effort to organise a blogger's potluck gathering tomorrow. As she will be in town for our National Day holiday, she suggested for a few of us bloggers to meet up. It looks like quite a successful event even though we have not attended it. Judging by the warm responses that she got from us, she must've been encouraged!

Some of them were very decisive on what food they want to bring to the gathering. It took me a long long time to decide what I want to prepare for my blogger friends. Most of them can bake really well. After much consideration, I decided to make Almond Cream with White Fungus for them to try. I learnt this from a workshop previously. This has been one of my favourite dessert since.
Shirley has already provided us with the sneak preview of what she will be bringing to the potluck party. I can't wait to try. I'll be one of the lucky blogger to be able to try her wonderful cooking skills.

I've also made some nuts to give to my new-found friends, who share the same passion as me. I hope they will like it. Isn't it nice to form a small "community of practice" for bakings?  Watch for more posts coming up which will include all the mouth-watering food prepared by the food bloggers. Till then, Ciao!

Hi Reese,
Wish you were here too! Nevermind, the next time when you come to Singapore, we can meet up. :)

Hi HHB,
Thanks. Wished you could join us too. :)

Hi Pei Lin,
You could be wrong! Hahaha... Almond cream with white fungus is not that "light". You'll try for yourself later. :p

Hi Busygran,
Thanks. The best part of the party is meeting all those "virtual" friends and savouring their foods! :)

Hi Jess,
Wish you good luck. Actually it doesn't matter, it's the thought that counts. Any simple bake from you will taste good. :) See you!

Hi Sweeter Side of Life,
I can't wait to try your homemade s/w too! I'm a very "bready" person. Heehee...See you!

Hi Suhaina,
Thanks! We're sure to enjoy ourselves lots...and stuff ourselves too! ;>

Hi Michelle,
Sorry to disappoint you. I won't be posting up the recipe for Almond Cream as I got this recipe from a workshop. Hope you understand.

Hi Jane,

Noted and understand. I would like to attend the workshop. Could you provide me with any contact for the workshop? I have tried to do almond cream using other recipes on my own but it is either not smooth enough or too watery.

Thank you.

Regards,
Michelle

Hi Michelle,
You can check out at Chef's Cooking Studio. You can drop them an email to let them know that you are interested in the Almond Cream so that if they have enough people, they might start a class. Hope this helps.

Hi Jane,

I have checked with Chef's Cooking Studio and they are not teaching. I did not give up and went to search on the other cooking studio but none teach this dessert.
Would you like to form a class of your own to teach on the Almond Cream with Fungus? Please Advise.

Thank you.

Regards,
Michelle

Hi Michelle,
I was out of town for a couple of days.
I'm sorry, I don't think it's right for me to use the chef's recipe to teach. I can't teach this as I'm no good at it too!
Maybe you want to check out a few baking schools and asked if they can teach this?
Sorry to disappoint you. I hope you understand.
