This and that... and see u in Beijing!
Hi peeps!! ahem.. finally i am sitting down and doing what i do best... surfing the net hehehe.. hows everyone? i know i hv yet to reply to a few emails.. pls be patience as i hv been busy getting things done bef my Beijing trip.. honestly i didnt even realise it was friday today till i got all of my baking order reminders fm google.. half of me said.. yayyyyyy.. another half.. u better get ur butt going and start packing ur goods!
A few days ago i found out that i will hv problems updating my blog or even check my FB in Beijing.. well basically u hv no excess to blogger or FB or even youtube due to the "great firewall of China".. told hb abt it.. he did some research and straight away subscribed to a remote proxy server service.. now i dont even know if it will work there but am keeping my hopes and head up high.. i think i would feel weird if i didnt get to blog while travelling.. so if u dont see me updating my blog.. u will know why.. huhu
So lets get back to this triple chocolate macs... i call it triple chocolate macs simply bec the macs shell uses two types of chocolate.. melted valrhona chocolate (70%) and also uses valrhona cocoa powder.. I used valrhona chocolate ganache as fillings and also dusted valrhona cocoa powder on the macs shell as a signature dessert!
I really really really like how it turned out.. its not so much abt the outlook.. tho to me the outlook is important too! the texture and the taste of this macs is different.. i find the shells are much much more stable ( i guess bec its using Italian method) and probably suitable if were to send it by post.. u see i get lots and lots of emails regarding this and each time i hv to explain to ppl that macs is one fragile thingy that its impossible to send via post BUT i guess with this new recipe.. maybe just maybe that can be done??...but how about the filling...hmmm? honestly i hv my reservations on sending my macs via post.. i mean every single time i take my macs to KL .. i keep all my macs in freezer bags filled with ice packs for the 3hrs drive.. i dont even know how my macs would survive 8 days during transit..'shrugs'
So anyway long story short.. i am really really sorry for not being able to share this recipe with my readers.. i wish i cud but i think its not ethical for me to be doing that.. i dont even know if i can even mention this persons' name in my blog.. thank you dear.. u know who u are.. for sending me this macs recipe via snail mail... i simply love it.. thank u for sharing this wonderful recipe !
Before i go and start packing my luggage... i just thought i'd share something which i hv been waiting on for so so long... this recipe book is not new... its almost a year old... but it was only available in francais... and we all know how good our francais is right... :) anyway its now available in english but that too only in limited numbers... so for those who want it be quick! its in store..
Ok peeps.. lemme just gv my thanks to all that had placed orders with me this week... i baked close to 240 macs.. thats 480 shells in total.. it was fun especially when i got to play around with my new colours... violet and also electric blue! pheeweeettt!
