Pomegranate Chocolate Bundt Cake

Christmas in Hong Kong is a different species—think of it as New Year’s Day with gifts. In the public places, the glittering lights and artificial trees are oversized, and there’s a gleeful energy from everyone rushing about with bags of presents. The high sport of shopping, which normally requires aerobic energy, suddenly shifts up to […]

getting the party started – black & white cake

December 6, 2013
Black & White Cake

In Hong Kong, December is all about celebrating with festive Christmas décor—and much of it is over the top. The indoor trees can be stories high, Santa doesn’t just have a throne but a full-size house.

Now that Halloween is over, did you satisfy your sweet tooth—or do you still have bags of individually wrapped bite-size candies waiting for you in a cabinet?

Dulce Pear Tart

Pears stir up wonderful memories of my Mom. Dinner was not complete without a fruit course—or more accurately fruit courses. She would go to her favorite fruit vendors to hand select the best they have to offer, and since this was Hong Kong, the selections came from all over the world. Oranges from Spain. Melons […]

Spiced Apple Snack Cakes

I’m particularly drawn to apples this autumn–the incredible heirloom apples from our favorite upstate farm stand may be the reason.  Ashmead’s Kernel, Newtown Pippin, Kid’s Orange Red, and Pink Pearl—even the names are delicious at Montgomery Place Orchard.
