    Momofuku Strawberry Shortcakes

    Last week was a busy week at work (not at its worst but yeah, it’s kinda hectic). There was this day when I wanted to go home so badly just to be able to do something in my kitchen. I decided to try something sweet from the Momofuku book since it’s just lying around the place. I was mentally calculating how much time I would need to create the dish plus I wondered whether doing a Momofuku dish will help relieve my stress. As you probably know, Momofuku dishes usually involve multiple steps and they’re not the ideal kind to whip up for an emergency cooking-to-remove-stress situation. Then again, I…

    Momofuku's Cherry Tomato Salad

    According to the book, Jean-Georges Vongerichten considers this dish as the best dish David Chang has ever come up with. That was a big remark coming from such a great man and it made me wonder what this salad is all about. This is the very first dish I served for my FB24x24 Momofuku dinner. David Chang’s team used tofu which basically could do what a mozzarella does in a traditional caprese salad, i.e., to moderate the acidity of the tomatoes and give some creaminess to the dish. The recipe also calls for Shiso or Japanese mint. Shiso and basil are like long-lost relatives in that they are both minty.…

    Momofuku's Crack Pie

    WARNING. This is an insanely addictive pie. It’s a dessert sold at Momofuku Milk Bar and foodies are raving about it. Again, I don’t know why it’s called a “Crack Pie” because there doesn’t seem to be any crack on the surface. What I only know of is that it’s ridiculously delicious that it cracks me up each bite and that it has a tendency to crack up your wallet because a pie costs US$44. 😛 A lot of foodies are writing about it and how good it is. Reviews everywhere would say that it is a winner. Even Anderson Cooper professed his love for the Crack Pie. So what…

    I’m so happy that after a long while of not posting (I was very busy with the cupcakes), I’m back with a really happy post. Guess what, I’ve been chosen to participate in this month’s Foodbuzz 24×24! Yep, this is my fourth participation and as always, I’m hoping that it’s not the last 🙂 For some of you who still don’t know, Foodbuzz 24×24 is a monthly roundup of 24 epic meals hosted by 24 Foodbuzz Featured Publishers in 24 different parts of the world. I proposed to recreate David Chang’s dishes and host my version of a Momofuku dinner at home. Armed with my Momofuku book, I went on…

    Momofuku-style Compost Cookies

    So, I think my hubby’s getting tired of me blabbing about Momofuku endlessly at home… like how I want to pickle all types of fruits and vegetables Momofuku-style, or how I want to make the steamed pork buns again which probably is the most famous dish in Momofuku’s menu, or how I want to make ramen at home following Momofuku’s recipe. I know there’s so much hype about Momofuku but even without that, I’m so inspired by the cookbook itself 😀 [btw, I also have this recent fascination with pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini. seriously, is there any hotter chef out there?] Hubby asked me if there’s anything sweet from Momofuku that…

    Of Cookbooks & Momofuku Steamed Pork Buns

    Hey friends! It’s been a while since my last post. Thing is, last week was my birthday week and I’m also busy preparing for a huge party this coming Saturday for hubby’s birthday. Yup, March is our birthday month and I’m struggling to find time to cook something for this blog. Anyhow, one of the presents I got from hubby for my birthday is the Momofuku cookbook by David Chang! I’ve always wanted to have one and I was literally close to getting one from Amazon. Perfect timing 🙂 I got my Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table last December from my sister and thought a David Chang and Thomas…
