A few months ago, I bought a Groupon for $10 which entitled me to $20 value to spend at MPH. It was expiring soon, so I had to use it.
I went to the outlet at Raffles City and spent about half an hour digging through the shelves for something I might like.
I wanted to get Macarons by Pierre Herme, but they didn’t have it. Neither do they have Laduree’s.
Finally, I found Okashi by Keiko Ishida, another book I was interested in! The retail price for it was $34.24.
This book was printed in Singapore and I suppose the author lives in Singapore too. This book includes Japanese inspired pastries, with soy bean, green tea and red bean as ingredients, as well as classic favourites with French style baking techniques. Think along the line of Japanese pastry shops like Flor, Patisserie Glace or k-ki– that genre. She also covered baking basics, like plain sponge cake, whipped cream, custard etc.
Every recipe is equipped with pictures, which I feel is important as comparing my product visually to the supposed is a good indication of how I fared.
Other than food for humans, there are also a few recipes on food for pets which is quite unique, even though I do not have pets so I probably will not try it.
I have yet to try any of the recipes yet but I will try soon!
