Desert Desserts? Never!

Desert Desserts? Never!

Mostly raves, plus a couple of rants about the assortment of sweet treats I have tried.

Since quite a few of you asked, yes, you CAN order @spagosingapore’s NEW Lemon Meringue Pie too! It’s only $65 (before GST) for the whole thing and it is worth every damn cent. Not only because of its huge size but for its fabulous scrumptiousness.
The luscious lemon curd in there isn’t some meek thing but so brightly zingy it effortlessly holds its own against the cumulus cloud of meringue on top (I also approve of the meringue’s modulated sweetness). Cradling these elements is a crispy, flaky pastry base that’s rich and buttery.
Besides myself, the family members and friends I cut to share the pie with, also couldn’t stop raving how marvelous it is.

Thanks again Chef Greg and Team Spago for sending me this as part of your care package. It cheered me up brilliantly 🤗💖

@regentsingapore will launch “Chef’s Playground” on 21st April 2021. It’s a creative space for all their chefs (from the Italian chefs at Basilico to the pastry chef for Tea Lounge and Dolcetto), to get creative in the kitchen.
Coming up first will be a Gold-leafed Truffle Ricotta Burnt Cheesecake topped with shavings of Norcia black truffles. The cake itself is incredibly creamy as ricotta seirass, a fresh cow’s milk curd from Piedmont, is used along with cream cheese. Since Italians have a flair for the dramatic, a knob of fresh truffle and a jar of Basilico’s coveted truffle honey (this is insane - I love it!) are also included for further lavishing to your heart’s content.
At 9pm on 21st April 2021, 30 of this Gold-leafed Truffle Ricotta Burnt Cheesecake Sets will be available for purchase online via @regentsingapore’s link-in-bio. So do mark your calendars to standby for this indulgent deliciousness.
To get first dibs on Regent Singapore’s chefs’ upcoming off-the-menu creations, please follow the hotel’s account as that will be where each exclusive release will be announced.

The desserts here are outstanding. We tried every one on the menu and I would happily re-order any of them in a heartbeat but this was one of my favourites.
Exquisitely crafted, the design is meant to mimic the snow-capped Mont Blanc mountain. The chestnut cream is on the inside of the meringue instead of the conventional outside too. To counter the sweetness, it is served with a scoop of blackcurrant sorbet.
Don’t order this to share because you will regret it.

This special Valentine’s Day Gift Set by @laderach_singapore is a real treat! Not only does the beautiful blonde wooden box contain a dozen large Swiss Miss Strawberries, but also a heap of large 56% dark chocolate buttons. Meant to be melted into a thick silky liquid for dipping the fruit in, these are essentially the same chocolate used in most of #Laderach’s hugely popular dark chocolate #frischschoggi variants. And just like wine, chocolate too possesses tasting notes. In this, you can expect to encounter hints of plums, berries and bananas on your palate as you bite into the juicy strawberry.

Pre-orders have begun. To place yours, just tap on @laderach_singapore’s link-in-bio on Instagram.

@pistachio.everything’s ice-cream (not gelato!) is remarkably creamy, deeply nutty and intense in pistachio flavour, because Kenneth (@themixtapechef) uses the nuts from Bronte, Sicily which are regarded as the best in the world. And to it off, quite literally, each pint has chopped pistachios sprinkled on as well. No wonder @dineshb is obsessed with it. Lucky for me the good man believes in spreading the word about it by spreading the calories, so thank you very much for the treat, Dinesh 😄.

If you are a fan of the nut, this is the ice-cream to order pronto. I think it says on their Instagram that they open for orders every Monday at 12noon. But please double-check.

A gorgeously crafted structure, this dessert is very well-balanced in flavour and delivers an enjoyable mouthfeel due to its composition of raspberry white chocolate ice cream, butter cookies, tiny crunchy chocolate balls and meringue. It even comes with a show-stopping finale of a flambé of rum right at your table.
Oh, one last thing. Make sure you leave enough belly space for this because it is huge!

Nothing beats gobbling down Bunyols-de-vent (mini donuts) straight out of the fryer. Dusted in cinnamon and sugar, they are still sticky-soft within.
Unless you have a really sweet tooth, I would recommend going easy on the ice-cream and dip as they’re both made with Dulce de Leche and are decidedly sweet. The donuts are already very good on their own anyway.

Although I am not a fan of durians, my family members who are, thought these were lovely. Conveniently packed into cardboard cubes, the durian flavour of the ice-cream was strong and it wasn’t too sweet. They were even little bits of durian flesh mixed into the ice-cream.

Although @soulsugarbakes’ NEW #SoulSugarPuddings range is officially launching tomorrow, if you are reading this, you get a headstart and can place an order now 😊.

Yes, home-based but professionally-trained Pastry Chef Audrey and her team have been busy dreaming up and experimenting in their kitchen. So, besides her popular signature, the classic Banana Pudding, you can dive into even more extraordinary fluffiness in the delectable flavours of Thai Milk Tea, Chocolate Oreo, Matcha, Earl Grey and Black Sesame.

Get your hands on these airy-light jar puddings by sliding into @soulsugarbakes’ DM on Instagram.

And thanks again Chef Audrey for the sneak preview.

When your favourite brand of Mille Crêpes becomes available in Pistachio, one of your all-time favourite flavours for anything, it’s cause for cartwheels of joy.
Besides the pistachio paste which is potent in its distinct toasty-nutty fragrance, crushed pistachios are scattered around the rim too. So this variation of @LadyMsg’s mille crepe cake tastes and feels even more luxurious than usual.
If you want a bite, don’t wait to pop into a Lady M boutique or visit their online store (link in their Instagram bio) because this seasonal flavour is only available for a limited period.

Thanks very much Nikky for arranging this delivery 🤗

@tspoflove’s take on the trending #BurntCheesecake is special because they are first and foremost, purveyors of direct-from-farm single origin tea from places such as the Phoenix Mountains of China, Taiwan and Sri Lanka.
So for this bake, they have cleverly infused “Da Hong Pao”, an artisanal roasted #Oolong tea from the Wu Yi Mountains of Fujian province that’s regarded as one of the best there. The beautiful lingering fragrance of the full-bodied tea is unmistakable. It permeates each bite with a subtle smoky-sweet, woody-fruit dimension, creating a welcome balancing to the inherent richness of this style of #cheesecake.
At last night’s family dinner, when I sliced it for everyone to share, the consensus was clear - everyone loved it too.
