My fingers still reek of garlic. They smell of durian too. But i'm still a happy girl because i got to spend the entire day doing what i do and love best, baking and cooking.
For tonights menu:Pan-Seared Beef Tenderloin on Asparagus with Mushroom RogoutStrawberry Delights - A tower combination of peaches, strawberries and strawberry cheesecake flavoured ice-cream garnished with home-made strawberry sauce, almond flakes and strawberry biscuit rollsDurian Puffs
A menu with no starters but comes with 2 desserts. Haha. All these, baked and cooked with love for dar. It aint any special occasion or whatsoever, i just woke up this morning and thought i'd whip up something special for dar this evening. =D
My bad for the lack of pictures! My kitchen and HANDS were extremely dirty and i dint want to let the dishes go cold/melt (for the ice-cream) as it takes time to get a good shot.
Dar loved his maincourse. It was so good he whipped up every single bit of his most hated - button mushrooms. He dint even leave any for me to try! I'm glad he enjoyed the strawberry dessert as well~ The only blooper were the over-baked cream puffs BUT, the durian sure made up for it. =D
Now do i understand why chefs do not usually eat what they cook. Sometimes, the love for food and feasting aint the sole and only reason for a person wanting/aspiring to be a chef, its usually the desire for cooking, which is an art, really, and also the satisfaction that comes along with it, especially when your guests enjoy your creations.
But what i dont understand is how chefs and fatness go together. Cooking in the kitchen, standing on your 2 feet all day long, stressing over the menu and food presentation, all these are so physically exhausting! I feel so drained you know. It feels as though i burn more calories in the kitchen than at they gym. My appetite for food also diminishes as dealing with food all day is enough to
kill my appetite. So, tell me, why do people associate getting fat with chefs? Does the size of a chef determine the quality of the food?
Could it have to do with all the sampling? ahah
Hmmmm...just some randomness on my part,
....and some food for thought
