Last Thanksgiving weekend, hubby and I had dinner at l’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. We wanted to book the restaurant, which has three Michelin stars, but it was fully booked. L’Atelier, which has two Michelin stars, was not such a bad alternative with a more relaxed ambience and no less than sumptuous offerings in the menu…Continue reading “L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon”
And for this occasion, I’m making a short review of the brasserie…
First of all, the place wows you in all directions upon entering. Immediately, you find yourself surrounded by sumptuous dessert on the buffet setting. The clear glass walls with the view of Marina Bay and the high ceiling make the room so bright and airy. It’s definitely my kind of room — beautiful view and very high ceiling. I was already sold!
Hubby and I decided to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary a bit earlier than usual this year. He told me about this restaurant at Resorts World Sentosa called, Curate. I immediately checked it out and found it interesting.
They regularly invite Michelin-starred chefs from all over the world for a sampling of their artistic cuisine. This particular weekend, we went for a lunch menu prepared by two-Michelin starred chef, Guy Martin of France. He is quite famous as he has a TV show called, Epicerie fine on TV5Monde (the French cable TV network) that we regularly watch on weekends.Continue reading “Art at Curate, Resorts World Sentosa”
December for me is all about reminiscing about the best experiences of the year that is almost about to come to an end. and so this December, i’m starting a blogpost about the best experiences i’ve had this year. and what better way to begin this than by talking about food.
the best restaurant experience i had was of course back in France during our family visit in the summer. my in-laws took us to this nice restaurant called La Ferme aux Grives in a small ville called Eugenie-les-Bains, in the South of France, not far from where my in-laws live.
the restaurant was set in the middle of a lovely garden, at the edge of a huge farm, and is owned by a two-Michelin starred chef, Michel Guerard.Continue reading “La Ferme aux Grives”
last December, we’ve taken our visiting in-laws to the Pidgin Bar and Restaurant at Dempsey Hill for lunch. the place has a lot of rave reviews all over the internet. so we decided to give it a try.
first impression: the ambience was very relaxing amid the surrounding greenery. and i just love the colonial architecture that gives an old-world charm to the place.Continue reading “Pidgin Bar and Restaurant”
during the holidays, i had quite a lot of energy for cooking and baking and so i decided to make some Tiramisu out of the blue.Continue reading “Tiramisu fait-maison”
ca fait longtemps que j’ai fait une recette française. c’est pour ca que aujourd’hui, j’ai décidé d’essayer faire les madeleines. c’est l’un des gateaux français que je prefère. je me rapelle, quand j’étais en France, je les mangeais pour petit-déjeuner presque tous les matins. je spécialement prefère ceux aux pépites de chocolat.
ce qui m’etonne ici à Singapour , c’est que c’est toujours difficile de trouver l’extrait de vanille pûr et bien aussi les moules pour faire les madeleine. mais, j’avais de la chance, parce que j’ai démandé ma belle-mère avant d’arriver ici a Singapour pour ses vacances de m’amener quelques ingredients et les moules pour les faire. Continue reading “Madeleines aux pépites de chocolat”
i remember when i have just arrived in Singapore back in 2007, the first country i visited outside of Singapore was Macau. but i had to wait until February of 2008 to do this. i considered it my sneak preview to Europe since i haven’t been anywhere in Europe at the time.
i went to Macau with my friend, Jen because she wanted to jump off the Macau Tower. she was convincing me to do it with her then but i told her i was saving my money for shopping in Hong Kong. that was just an excuse because i was a bit scared to do it then. and still scared to do it up to now. jumping off buildings is not really my thing.Continue reading “Hong Kong and Macau Revisited Part Two (Macau Day Tour)”
Since hubby was on a short business trip to Hong Kong, we took the opportunity to take a mini-break together and visit some interesting sites both in HK and in Macau.
It was hubby’s first time to visit both countries, while this is already the second time for me. Our hotel was very central, located in-between Sheung Wan and Central MTR stations, and within walking distance to the Ferry Port.Continue reading “Hong Kong and Macau Revisited Part One (Jose Rizal sites and Dinner with friends)”
