Ramadan Yee Sang 2
Toast The Yee Sang This Ramadan

I was lucky to have toasted the Yee Sang at this end of third quarter of the year and I had it at China Treasures located at Sime Darby Convention Centre along with two of muslim workmates. We wanted something different and a nice comfortable dining. We booked ourself a room and it was rather private and comfortable.

It was a change to have a more lighter dishes and also able to taste a different experience. We ordered the set for 6 persons which came with a moon cake platter as a sweet at the end of the dinner. My mates like the idea as the would like to try the mooncakes. We started off with the Yee Sang with additional finely sliced dates and also a hint of kaffir leaves.

It was truly fun to toast the Yee Sang over the Ramadan with my mates. We wished for a properous year with great health.

Macaroons

It was a love story. Love at the first sight when I had my first bite of a macaroon. Sid bought a box of them from Shangrila Hotel right next door of his office at Jalan Sultan Ismail. It was such an incredible piece of cookie, crunchy from the outside and chewy from the inside, fascinating and fantastic. They are the jewel of cookies. I had tried the one from Bakerzin, but theirs were rather soft and do not have that layer of crunchiness and were easily breakable.

It had been more than a year now that I had embarked to bake these jewel macaroons. We had hunted for these recipes from many cookbooks to cookbooks and especially those french written. Each time we tried to bake them and each time we failed, totally hopeless and restless.

Why?…. Most of the time we end up having flat macaroons just like little flying saucers. There were countless of these cookies end up in the bin. It was just like a baker who can’t bake and ain’t a baker!!!


We then stumbled upon some great japanese recipes on macaroon and had tried them, they really work. At the end we had mastered the art of making macaroons. You really need to treat them like you own, if not ,the chances of them to work will be really very slim. You need to pamper them and even talk to them…hehehehehe!

Here I got to say you need to be very alert when combining the ingredients especially during the pre baking. Also need to be alert during baking too, wrong temperature will end up having them cracked or uncooked as just what we encountered before.

We also found this japanese-chinese translated book on macaroon recently at Kinokuniya book store in KLCC. It is only at RM38 and this book is currently on 20% discount with the purchased of one other book. We find this book very well written with such great details, funny, helpful and packed with photos and instruction. We love it. It will able to medicate all your macaroon fever.

Macaroons posts also can be found at: boo_licious and veron.

Love Sunny Yaw
