Attended a Baking Workshop at Palate Sensations. A class of 6, together with Lynette, the M.D of Palate Sensations, were taught how to prepare restaurant desserts - Crepes Suzette, Chocolate Souffles and Panna Cotta with Berry Compote.
I really truely enjoyed the Crepes Suzette! If not for the tedious prep work, i might just consider whipping this up every morning for breakfast. Pana Cotta's were pretty good too! Don't be fooled by its tofu consistency for it sure contains a helluva heavy cream FAT. Souffle's on the otherhand were extremely light and airy. Consisting solely of pure dark valrhona chocolates and meringue, this dessert certainly doesnt fail to excite ur tastebuds. However, i personally do not quite take to the flavor of chocolate souffles. It tends to give me a nauseating feel, which is very strange and unheard of for a chocoholic like me.

And remember the last time i blogged about Kengy's B-day Cake from The Patissier? Yes, the picture's finally here. I hereby present to you the Croquembouch! Haha, even i had difficulty pronouncing it.
40 mini Profiteroles, sitting atop a 6 inch crunchy chocolate praline base. Aint it beautiful?
In fact, my camera kinda screwed up on me today. Images on my screen suddenly appeared chrome-like and pictures captured under bright light turned out looking disastrous. Brought it to see a doctor at Sony's Service Centre BUT the service personnel just couldnt find any particular fault with it. And boy was she right, my camera was perfectly fine. Bummer.
It aint just the camera alone. My laptop's also giving me a hardtime. Just the other day, a black screen appeared, with a message telling me to re-start the system. Also, it cant view livejournal websites! BOO! N as mentioned before, my HP also chose to crank up on me by automatically deleting all my pictures, ringtones and mp3s!
Grrrr..looks like technology and me dont go so well together afterall...
