Tarte Fromage

cheese cake

I had been having a great time over the weekend although I have been struggling for time. I have been baking macarons with a great group of students of mine, some budding up coming young chefs from UITM, some were excited baby bakers and some got too interested yet excited with macarons. All of them did very well and all the macarons baked was a success, non cracks, all just perfect! You gals were awesome, now I am waiting with less stress for their home results, gosh! I am already excited, definitely my mobile and email will be flooded this coming weeks, and I hope not! :)

I was also had been busy sculpturing a two tier 50th birthday cake which came out to be gorgeous it was finished with black and red in colour. The feedback was truly positive, they like it! Then I had an australian cafe food excursion near my place and it was awesomely gorgeous. I truly love the burgers and salad yet it was so affordable. I can’t give you much details of it as Sidny will be reviewing it on his food blog soon.

Fraise & Framboise Chocolat Ganache Tartlets


This is a recipe from “The Dessert Book by Chef Hidemi Sugino”….. oh got to tell you, he is one of my celebrity chef that I idol so much, his work is so incredible.

Sweet Tart Dough(Pate Sucree)
Makes 350g

90g unsalted butter, thinly sliced
60g confectioners’ sugar
30g whole egg
20g almond flour
150g all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface

1. Combine butter and sugar in food processor, and process for 4 to 5 seconds
2. Gradually add egg, almond flour and all-purpose flour, processing 4 to 5 seconds after each addition.
3. Scarping down mizture between additions. Total processing time may be 12 to 15 seconds, or until dough just holds together. Do not over-mix.
4. Place into airtight plastic bag and flatten with a rolling pin. Refridgerate for 2 to 3 hours.
5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into 2.5 to 3mm thick. Prick all over with a fork. Place dough onto a tart pan loosely, the floured surface up, and press dough into pan.
6. Trim dough, by rolling a pin on dough. Press sides and bottom tightly onto pan. Cut away any exess dough with a knife.
To make tartlets, cut dough one size larger than the pans after rolling out. Then trim the overhanging dough with a knife after pressing into pans. If you don’t use all the dough, freeze the rest.


Fraise & Framboise Chocolat Ganache
(I had altered some of the ingredient to suit the taste and liking.)

80g frozen framboise(rasberry) puree
10ml framboise Monin syrup
10ml fraise Monin syrup
70ml heavy cream(whipping cream)
150gm dark chocolat (bittersweet)
30gm soft unsalted butter

1. Bake tart case: Roll out dough and place into baking pans; prick bottom of dough all over with a fork, bake in a 170C over the oven for 10 to 12 minutes; let cool.
2. Make ganache: Heat the puree until just starting to melt, remove from heat. Add syrups; set aside until completely melted by remaining heat. Return to heat, add heavy cream and bring to boil.
3. In a large bowl, place chocolat, add hot puree-cream mixture, whisking little by little, drawing small circles until emulsify completely. Add butter in small pieces, mix well until shiny.
4. Pour ganache into tart cases and spread evenly. Garnish with fresh fraise or framboise.(can serve with vanilla ice cream)
