Laura Calder the author of French Taste yet a culinary expert who had hosted 79 episodes of French Food at Home, with two seasons shown exclusively on the Asian Food Channel (AFC) was in town and I meet her at Sampling on the Fourteen, Berjaya University College of Hospitality.

She is definitely my Kitchen Goddess! I like her, she was funny yet filled with wittiness . . . . equipt with a flamboyant style herself, she captured her audience within seconds, well I am one of them! I was totally hypnotised by her . . . . . she is gorgeous.

Here I share one of her dessert recipe I learned during her class and it was awesome,

    Such a beautiful tart! I do love apple pie, but find it so plain and homely… This is a great way to get the same flavor, in a more elegant package. :)

    Thank you so much for posting the recipe. I first heard she was there from Swee San’s blog and now you. I’ve been dying for her recipe for apple tart. I like how her cooking is so simple, rustic, no need to roll and line, just press into tart tin. Indeed home cooking. Thank you so much, you have made my day. I am gonna attempt it!!!!

    Since I am not the biggest pumpkin pie fan, I might just have to bookmark this for my Thanksgiving feast later this year. Looks like a winner to me! 😉
