rose to the occasion – apple frangipane tart

Apple Frangipane Tart

  When M said he wanted a pie—preferable with apples—for his birthday instead of a cake, I was speechless. An apple pie is fine for some occasions, but it’s not the most visually celebratory item. I realized it was his birthday, and he should have his wish. My challenge was to make this pie look […]

Salted Caramel Apple Charlotte

Apples seemed mundane when I grew up with mangos, lychees, papayas, coconuts, and dragon fruit. In Hong Kong, apples are usually included in fruit basket for their color—not their flavor. So, why now do I love apples.

scent of the holiday — caramelized apple gingerbread

Caramelized Apple Gingerbread

November and half of December have been an unfashionably warm on the East coast, so it’s taken some effort to summon the holiday spirit. Yes, we had a few cold days here and there, but that’s just not enough for this New Yorker. The guys selling Christmas trees on the street corners are normally bundled […]

Brandy Apple Cake w Maple Walnut Meringue Frosting

As far as holiday birthdays are concern, Thanksgiving probably ranks in the middle of that list. Most people are either busy getting ready for Thanksgiving or simply take the week off for vacation. So if you are planning a big birthday party, you need to tell people far in advance. Well, good thing M is […]

Baked Apples w Cider Rum Sauce

A few weeks ago when I posted the Toffee Apple Cookie recipe, I mentioned my hesitation with purchasing apples at the Farmer’s Market in New York City. That produce might have been from last year’s remaining crop in storage. Last week, fresh apples were in abundant supply at the Montgomery Orchard farm stand in Dutchess […]

Spiced Apple Cake

You’d think having a Jewish partner, I’d have been to a Passover Seder meal at least once. Nope. Every year I hope like a silly school boy in yarmulke that I’ll be invited to someone’s home for a Seder. Instead, I end up at a gym working out with the rest of the goyum and […]

time to hit the bars

Brandy Apple Bars

The good news: the Farmer’s Market at Union Square is still open. The sad news: there’s not a lot to buy. The staples of eggs, bread, and root vegetables are available, but when it comes to fruit, the only plausable items are apples. Though I’m inspired by my recent trip, eating locally—even for desserts—still has […]
