Book Launching: My Venezuelan Cuisine by Carmen Rawstron

Carmen
My Venezuelan Cuisine by Carmen Rawstron

At a recent event, I was invited by Mrs Carmen Rawstron to try out some of her fabulous Venezuelan dishes. I knew Mrs Carmen Rawstron way back early 2010 when celebrity Chef Tamara Rodriquez was in town. We basically meet on the common ground, the kitchen. A very elegant lady with full of charm, that is how I would describe Mrs Carmen Rawstron. I had noticed about her when I was with Chef Tamara, she was very creative in her cooking and the taste of her dishes were unique and ftasty. I was truly excited when Mrs Carmen told me about writing her first cooking book. At last she had it executed with such a success. I find the book very appealing and easy to follow.

The ingredients are simple and easy to find here in Kuala Lumpur. “It so adorable and so irresistible, it is a must have recipe book”, I told myself. That night was not only a book launching but all the guests were showcaesd to Mrs Carmen’s delicious cooking. Yes it was authincily delicious. The dessert was too die for.

A Brazilian New Year Eve Feast at Bossa Nova Parkroyal Kuala Lumpur

Bossa Nova
Bossa Nova The Best Brazilian Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur

I just adore this restaurant as it serves one of the top grilled in town. This restaurant truly has it’s charm and the food just incredible delicious. Itserves beautiful grilled tenderloin, lamb, chicken, prawns and sausages. What makes them so delicious and tasty? I believe it must be the freshness of the ingredients and great marination.

This time I am back at Bossa Nova to taste their New Year Eve Menu, a 5-course set dinner which was just amazingly prepared by an ingenious in-house and boyish Chef Loo. It was truly a refine dinner that I enjoyed that night. Definetely a perfect dinner for this New Year Eve celebration.

To start off the dinner, I had light slices poarched lobster topped with black caviar accompanied with Golden Kiwi Vinaigrette and Shiso Mix. The kiwi Vinaigratte was truly delightful and ingeniuosly infused great flavors into the sliced lobster. I found it truly dazzled!

Next was a light refreshing consomme filled with bursting flavour of porcini mushroom. Having a light soup can be truly delightful than having a thick milk based ones. I like it, it reminds me of caramel onion soup when I was in New York.

Sunny Yaw Year End Desserts featured on Guang Ming Newspaper

Page1

This is truly fabulous as my year end Christmas dessert creations were featured at the Guang Ming Chinese newspaper on Sunday. I had the macaronns captured and towers were built using the coloured ones. The beauty of macarons can easily be identified as they come in many colours and flavours. The macaron tower itself can easily glitter your serving table this Christmas without fail. It can also be an awesome gift for this Christmas and also for those who are celebrating birthdays! I just love them all especially the ones that I constructed myself :)

page2

During this festive I had also sculptured Christmas Towers using thumb print cookies. They are awesome and look very pretty Owning one is so easy, just get me to make it for you. :) yet another must have dessert this Christmas will be definitely the Christmas fruit cake. I had them covered with white and green royal icing or just with golden ribbons. Sending a dessert as a give can be truly a good idea. Mille crepe would be a fabulous idea too.

page3

Definitely this year end would be fabulous and having to celebrate with delicious is a must! . . . . . . . . so have a great jolly Christmas this year and I will continue baking more lovely desserts, Sunny Yaw
