We had a productive weekend in and out of the kitchen. Let me tell you about it. In pictures. I'm a bit knackered. Struggling to actually string a lot of words together to form a coherent paragraph. Even twitter is challenging me today.
To get the amount I need, the entire bowl of calamansi must be squeezed. Took me about an hour or so.
Ingredients for calamansi curd. Not in the picture: calamnsi rinds. Those suckers are hard to get.
Fluffy pink macaron batter. Well, pre-macaronage and pre-croûtage, that is. (Fancy french terms that may be googled.)
Pink macaron shells + dark chocolate ganache = this. I love the light on this photo.
My first attempt to make chai tea syrup. From L-R: water, honey, cloves, bay leaf, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon bark, vanilla and english breakfast tea. I need to recalibrate the amount of those spices.
A nice wall in an underground parking somewhere along the stretch of Ortigas Avenue.
What I had to settle for because Charlie's ran out of milkshakes. Was really jonesing for Salted Caramel Shake, but alas! The milkshake gods were not smiling at me.
Something that I nibbled on while we had watermelon bellinis. Very hot afternoon on top of a disappointing trip to Muji.
