麥典坊 Wheatie Bakery

麥典坊手感烘焙 Wheatie Bakery

午後獨自出外取回已維修好的手提電腦。一切安頓好後,步行到天后,準備乘搭巴士回家。在英皇道與留仙街口見到一間頗雅緻的麵包店 - 麥典坊手感烘焙。 I went out after lunch to pick up my notebook computer from the repair shop. When everything was settled, I walked to Tin Hau and prepared to go home by bus. Right at the junction between King's Road and Lau Sin Street, an elegant bakery caught my attention - Wheatie Bakery.

Tour of Local Bakeries in Hong Kong 香港本土麵包店廵禮

I like to visit bakeries when I'm having overseas tours. This not only allowed me to enjoy tasty breads, pastries and wonderful shop decorations, but also gave me a chance to experience various bread that are local to the place. Recalled that I have written several posts on those bakery stores that I had visited, however, seems like I have none for bakeries in Hong Kong. Starting in 2019, I would like to spend some efforts on all those local bakeries that I have visited and tasted their breads. 到外地旅遊很多時都會留意麵包店,除可嘗試到各式麵包美食和店舖的特色裝修外,也可體驗各地特式麵包。 之前寫過數編以此作主題的貼文,但卻從沒有關注過自己日常生活的香港,2019年就來個本土麵包店的廵禮吧。

今天早上有點空閒時間,又到柏架山作一個短途行山。出發前有點餓,就在入囗處附近的Number One麵包西餅買個麵包充飢。 Got some free time this morning and is great for another short hiking trip in Mount Parker. Before starting the trip, I went to NumberOne bakery to buy my breakfast.

MasterChef Season 9 (2018)

10 Things I Have Learnt from MasterChef

My wife, my boy and I are fans of the Gordon Ramsay's MasterChef series of TV Shows. Having watched a number of the MasterChef seasons in the past few years, other than knowing some of the cooking skills and innovative ideas in elevating dishes to the MasterChef level, we have also learnt somethings from the show.

Artisan Baker – 火頭工

My friend got me some books and magazine to kill time while I stayed in the hospital. One of those is "Artisan Baker 火頭工 説麵包、做麵包、吃麵包" by Philip Wu 吳家麟.

Hong Kong Style Egg Tart – My First Attempt

Like a lot of the Hong Kong people, egg-tart is one of my favourite pastries. Here in Hong Kong, we have two different styles of egg-tarts, one comes with a butter pastry (撻皮) base while the other one comes with puff pastry (酥皮) base. Personally, I prefer butter pastry base which is more crispy over the puff pastry base. This week, instead of making bread, I will practise making my first Hong Kong style Egg-tart with butter pastry base. Hong Kong Style

A Bite of Fine Dining in Kaohsiung

Kaohsiung, the third biggest city of Taiwan, is not only famous for its port, night markets, food, prettiest metro stations and enormous public artwork, but also the emerging scene of fine dining. During our bike ride in Kaohsiung in late March, we had a chance to be the guests of our closed friends, at one of the great restaurants, the LA ONE Kitchen & Bakery.

Short Baguette

Baguette is one of the most difficult breads to make and ongoing practice is a must for beginners like me. My oven is a small one which can't handle the usual length of 65 cm, so I am going to make a short Baguette instead.

Simple Fig Bread

I love fig, especially those dried figs.They are delicious and rich in dietary fibre. Back in the good old days when I was young, I like eating Fig Rolls - a sweet biscuit filled with fig paste in the middle. To fill my dream of eating fig, I decided to bake a fig bread today.
