High Tea for Two at da.u.de

Thanks to Deal Grocer for offering this special high tea for 2 deal from da.u.de tea lounge.


The deal comes with a choice of (refillable) tea and three tiers of yummy food that goes well with the tea. We chose Passion Green tea. The fruit flavor complemented well with the green tea. Now the food! We started at the top tier with  Madeleines, Scones, Tea Marmalade, Lemon Curd, and Unclotted Cream.  I loveee the scone and lemon curd! Second tier offers savory Roasted Vegetable Tartines and Crisp Pork Banh Mi Crostinis (my fave!) Third tier carries the sweet treats:  Apfelstrudel, Tea Brûlée, Vanilla Ice Cream, and two Macarons. I enjoyed the the food from the top and second tiers the most. I would prefer the Apfelstrudel warm with the Vanillla Ice cream.

My friend and I super enjoyed our experience. Good food and service from da.u.de! Thanks again to Deal Grocer 🙂


Kitchen Test: Ricecooker Tatin cake

I came across this article, “21 Surprising Things You Can Make In A Rice Cooker“. It’s fascinating how we can actually use this kitchen equipment to cook dishes and even desserts. Being a dessert person, I immediately bookmarked one of the recipes: the Ricecooker Tatin cake.

DSC02424The recipe calls for cane sugar. I replaced it with brown sugar and added 1/2 tbsp cinnamon powder. Just love the smell while cooking this!


The texture of the cake is comparable to hotcake. It’s not that sweet so it’s better that the apple mixture should be sweet enough. It’s a good thing that there’s enough syrup in the apple mixture to keep the cake moist. And since I used a regular size rice cooker, the cake was thinner. Use a smaller rice cooker for a thicker cake. I think this will go perfectly with  vanilla ice cream or cream on top. Yum!
