Rosso’s New Groove

Posted in Baking with tags , , , on May 20, 2009 by thepseudoepicurean

I’m back in action! I’ve finally decided to get my act together and start putting up pictures of all that Rosso and I have been up to.

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve become very well acquainted with each other, and Rosso is an absolute joy to work with. To date, we’ve already made macarons a la Duncan (which I must add had a decent result for a first attempt), a butter cake, a Cordon Rose banana cake complete with sour cream ganache, a cream cheese pound cake (so decadent and heavenly and loaded with calories but it’s worth it) and other random little cakes in between.

I used to work with my mother’s Kenwood Chef back in Singapore and loved it, but can I just say that nothing beats the whirring sound of the KitchenAid in the background while you’re sifting your flour, weighing the butter, etc!

Vespa In My Kitchen

I’m still here! Kinda.

This time round I’ve been cooking a LOT, taking far too many photos, but not uploading them or writing about my cooking adventures. I’ve also a new addition to the family – a brand new, shiny, oooohsohot red KitchenAid!

Thanks to gift vouchers we got from our credit card rewards (see, it pays to spend!) and “wedding money” from a well-meaning family friend in advance, we made a beeline for the David Jones kitchenware department yesterday afternoon!

World, meet Rosso; Rosso, meet world.

World, meet Rosso; Rosso, meet world.

We are incredibly pleased. 😀 And I love my brother’s analogy:

Bro: OOOOO!!!! IT”S HOT!
me: yeah baby!
Bro: it’s like a Vespa in the kitchen!!!
