Waldorf Salad II
About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Savoury main courses! I like pasta / rice dishes...currently trying to learn how to whip up a good rissoto.
My cooking triumphs
Making chinese mooncakes from scratch!!! It was extremely labour intensive but the end results were worth it!
My cooking tragedies
For a dessert competition, i decided to submit a high-cost but easy to make chocolate truffle cake. I overdid the whipping of the cream (overwhipped cream becomes BUTTER!) but I decided to serve the cake anyway! Taken in small quantities, it was alright...but everyone who had more than two mouthfuls felt sick!

Ginger-Cabbage Salad
it was a bit mild for my taste but perhaps it's becos i used distilled white vinegar instead of rice vinegar and also omitted the mirin. I added 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/2 cup of sugar and a sprinkling of sesame seeds as well..(inspired by another recipe found in this website, "Hallejulah noodles"). The end result tasted uncannily like a raw fish salad ("Yu Sheng") that the Chinese people in Singapore have during the Lunar New time, i will add smoked salmon!

Eggplant Omelet Dip
this dish didn't turn out very nicely..maybe it's because I m not skilled at cooking scrambled eggs usually...definitely won't be trying it again. Sorry!
