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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
