Pavlova | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

My mind is a weird and annoying place because I like to know why – you know that annoying kid that’s always asking why something happens? That’s me in adult form. So every time I’m baking something I like to know what is happening and why I’m doing s ...

Pierre Herme, Paris

Pierre Herme, Paris

I have been dying to try Pierre Herme’s cakes and pastries (I’ve only tried his macarons in Osaka). I was soooo close to sinking my teeth into his infinite jasmine tart with it stored safely in the hotel fridge in Tokyo. Then bam food poisoning from ...

Matcha Cupcakes

Matcha Cupcakes

I nearly fooled you all didn’t I? That I am some kind of calm baker that finds peace and simplicity in the kitchen. I am an angry baker. I get stressed out when I bake and am on high alert the entire time. Anything can set me off and I go into an ang ...

Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie consist of a filling of whipped egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Topped with a lashing of whipped cream makes this American dessert amazing.    It’s been way too long since I’ve been here. I’m in this weird self impr ...

Kimchi Jjgae Recipe

Kimchi Jjgae Recipe

People assume that because I can bake it also means I’ll be a good cook. Let me lay this out but baking and cooking are completely different. Baking you have to be very precise and follow steps to a tee. If you miss an ingredient you are pretty scr ...

Matcha Creme Brulee

Matcha Creme Brulee

I never used to exercise until I started this blog but once you start eating out and baking as much as I do, the kilos pile on quite easily. Hence the need for exercise and to ease the guilt a little bit. The way I push myself to run is that I guilt ...

Orange Chocolate Mousse

Orange Chocolate Mousse

Ok guys this is a bit hard to admit but I’ve ran out of places I want to eat at in Adelaide. It’s just that what is popular isn’t what I’m interested in. Like all these hip brunch places popping up but in the end they sell the same stuff: steak san ...

Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut Butter Cups

Dare I say these tastes better than the Reese peanut butter cups? Especially because you can pack it with as much peanut butter filling as you want AND you can use the best quality chocolate you have. Although I do prefer to use the Cadbury melts r ...

Chocolate Passionfruit Gateau

Chocolate Passionfruit Gateau

My Instagram is filled with giant 4-5 layered cakes and huge milkshakes where I wonder how it’s still standing and how you are supposed to eat it. Visually impressive but I’m a simple girl at heart (FYI my favourite flavour is vanilla). This chocol ...

Salted Caramel Macarons

Salted Caramel Macarons

I’ve found a salted caramel macarons recipe that tastes so similar to Laduree’s which is my favourite salted caramel macaron – not a buttercream one nor a ganache type but thick unadulterated salted caramel. It has a chewy butterscotch-like texture ...

The Desserts of New York

The Desserts of New York

Disclaimer: I was gifted The Desserts of New York by Hardie Grant I’ve been obsessed with American desserts for a while where I’ve been busily baking peanut butter cups, key lime pie and smores brownie. Then I was asked whether I would be interested ...

Hammer & Tong, Fitzroy

Hammer & Tong, Fitzroy

When I was in Hong Kong at Hui Lau Shan everyone had whipped out their DSLRs to snap photos of their food. These are my people. I am home. Yet in Australia I’m pretty sure I’m one of the less subtle people – no phones or point and shoot cameras but r ...

Luxbite, South Yarra

Luxbite, South Yarra

Towards the end of my trip I was fearing that my tastebuds had completely died off – I was never hungry because of my constant eating, packed on an extra 5 kgs and after a month coming back I never felt like eating out. More realistic expectations fo ...

Rose Macarons

Rose Macarons

You guys know how I love a good macaron but I am extremely picky with everything about them (as can be seen in my Macarons in Adelaide post). For the past 4 years I’ve been trying to bake them so I don’t have to pay $4 for a bad one. Now that I think ...

Nghi Ngan Quan, Ferryden Park | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

Nghi Ngan Quan, Ferryden Park | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

Nghi Ngan Quan used to be L’s fav Viet restaurant, until about 2 years ago when I converted her to Yenlinh :D However, Nghi Ngan Quan is still a great restraurant, located near Hanson Road. I’ve eaten here since I was kid, when the place had giant pa ...

Salted Chocolate Caramel Tart

Salted Chocolate Caramel Tart

I wasn’t going to post this recipe as it goes against everything that I believe in in the kitchen. I love baking everything from scratch and I am that girl that will turn her nose at the pre mixed boxes of cakes and desserts. Yet here I am now. What ...

Star of Greece, Port Willunga

Star of Greece, Port Willunga

Star of Greece located in Port Willunga is a beach shack right on the cliff that gives an amazing view of the beach. Decided to give this a spin for C and I’s 5 years – how does time pass us so fast? It doesn’t even feel that long :s Mulloway starte ...

The Only Panna Cotta Recipe You'll Need

The Only Panna Cotta Recipe You'll Need

I hate wasting food. Not sure if it’s the stingy Asian in me but seeing that I had leftover cream from baking brownies and some frozen mixed berries it seemed a shame to just chuck it all in the bin. Definitely the wrong season to make these but it w ...

Popcorn Macarons

Popcorn Macarons

I hate butter. There I’ve said it. It’s that fatty taste that puts me off. That strong buttery flavour that lingers in my homemade buttercream gives me the shivers. But everything changed when I went to Europe. It tasted like whipped cream cheese a ...

Matcha Nama Chocolate

Matcha Nama Chocolate

A lot of my stories start the same way. I find something I love but can’t justify paying xx amounts for it but I still want more. The solution? Make it myself. You can see where this is going. When Royce opened up in Marion I fell in love with their ...
