About Me

Can you tell our readers about yourself and your blog?

Hi Readers,

Firstly, thank for visiting my blog.  My name is Romaine, I enjoy writing, baking, reading, trying new recipes and learning new things and my inspiration for this blog is my love for Patisserie. I love learning new things and this blog looks at different recipes, simple to complicated, that I have tried from different recipe books and online Patisserie chefs.  Patisserie is fun and challenging at the same time but nothing beats the feeling of completing a product.

Do you think about color when you are preparing a meal?

Yes we eat with our eyes; people get turned off if the food looks unappealing,

 Are there any foods that you wouldn’t eat as a child that you eat now?

Yogurt…never liked it when I was a child but now I have it with fruits or in my smoothies,

 Do you prefer to eat at a restaurant or at home?

At home…It is fun to cook your own food, it is cheaper, no worries on what to wear to go to the restaurant and home cooked food is the best.

 Do you prefer your own country’s food or other kinds of food?

I love trying different foods from different counties.  You also learn that some foods you eat at your home country are called something else in another country.

What is your favourite dessert?

Cream caramel

 What’s the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?

Cows tongue

 If you were on death row, what would you request for your last meal?

Okay here is my menu:

Starters:  Crumbled chicken wings, potato bhajias, and samosa and meat koftaa..

Mains:  Biryani, Chili jam noodles, seafood platter, pizza and French fries.

Deserts:  Cream caramel, Sachar tort and vanilla ice cream

 Do you like trying new foods?

Yes, love trying different foods.

 Coffee. with George Clooney or Heston Blumenthal?

I love experimenting so I will have coffee with Heston and he is creative with food.

 There’s a saying that goes: “Life is short, eat dessert first.”  What do you think of that advice?

Have dessert last, save the best for last.

 Would you rather eat only fruit or vegetables for one year

Fruits love fruits more than vegetables.

 Would you rather give up meat or give up fruit?

You need proteins so will give up fruits.

Would you rather have to eat dessert at every meal or never eat dessert again?

Eat dessert at every meal of course…love my desserts

 Pancakes or waffles?

Love the taste of pancakes, enjoy making them every Sunday.

 Cake or pie?

Cake…nice delicious cake.

Give up cheese forever or Give up chocolate forever?

I rather give up cheese forever, cannot imagine a world without chocolate.

 Give up sugar or give up salt?

Despite me loving sweet things I will give up sugar for salt, you need salt to flavour the savoury foods and you can have deserts that use natural sugars such as honey,

Give up cake forever or Give up ice cream forever?

I will give up ice cream forever…cakes are more versatile, you can do a lot with cake.
