Dose of inspiration. 

I’m not very good at expressing what I feel, so I won’t say much. I guess all of us have that feeling sometimes, that it’s too late…I’ll never…I’m too old…I no longer have the time…the time has passed…etc etc… A despairing heartache that you try your best to bury with the busyness of living. May we have the faith to believe that it’s not too late and have the courage to make those dreams come true and be the person we long to be. 

Panna Cotta with Caramel Sauce Cockaigne and Caramel-glazed popcorns

I as a viewer, seemed to also be learning more from watching how the contestants cook, the ingredients they use and the way they present their food. Oh my goodness, the way they present their food – I’m so inspired! Read More »
