“as petite as she is and as pretty as to take a bite of goodness …… Chef Amy Beh’s canapés”, as qouted from facebook
Celebrity Chef and Ambassador of Worldchefs Without Borders Amy Beh’s gorgeous petite tart cased over Jiu Hu Char was such a brilliant teaser to start with at such a brilliant eating showcase. One mouth bite Jiu Hu Char was charming indeed that came with fine bites of sweet turnip and also fine strings of dried cuttlefish to give it a boost of flavour.
I can just bang my head onto the table as I presented with such lovely warm and freshly baked bread. French Baquette was a stunner while the Focaccia was a bewilded jockey that had a fabulous finishing and a slice of Hazelnut Mueslis Bread was definitely a sweet seductress. Alluring they were and definitely a show off that truly satisfied me on the spot, butter please. Thank you Chef Alice Han.
