Hi, Its been long since I post anything. I’ve been very busy lately with attending courses on sewing ….clothes and curtains. I have future plans towards this profession when I move back to Shah Alam. Coincidently with the recent Eid celebration ie Hari Raya Aidilfitri I have to pause all my other activities to concentrate on preparing orders for Pineapple and Strawberry Tart cookies.
I am not a professional chef. I prepare simple meals for my family. But when I put food on the table I will make sure the meals look versatile and interesting to create good appetite to eat. Be versatile on the colours of your dishes. A good example add a few cuts of ripe pineapple on your meal you prepare as the golden colour will enhance the food presentation.
Let’s try something a little bit of hot and spicy dish. Malaysians like to make ‘ sambal belacan” ie chilli paste pounded with shrimp. Add some ripe cut pineapples to it and you will love the aroma of the dish not to mention the mouth-watering taste !!!
