    Soto Banjar

    Soto Banjar is another chicken and vermicelli soup in Indonesia that comes from Kalimantan (Borneo) province. I think every island has their own soto dish. And each soto tastes different. Soto Banjar and Soto Jawa (Javanese chicken noodle soup) are … Continue reading

    Empal Gentong Cirebon

    Gloomy monday *sigh*. Been raining since last night. Very wet and cold. So I have no choice but to make something with broth again. Sorry for that though. It’s just my habit that when the weather is cold, I mostly … Continue reading

Learn From Your Mistakes

You know… I often change some stuffs here and there in most of my recipes. Mostly foods though.

Today’s post is about those foods that I’m not entirely satisfy with. But I still want to share them with you, and tell you what’s wrong with them. To some of you, they might look ok but I’m just not happy enough.

The first one we’re going to talk about is this Japanese Cheesecake with Blueberry Compote. I’ve made this a while back, when it was still baking in the oven, it looked really good but when I took it out, it started to shrink and form a wrinkle ring around the cake (as you can see in the photo below). The cake it self (without the compote) tasted really nice. Very soft, moist and fluffy and not too sweet (just how I like it).

As for the compote, I didn’t take enough time to make it, that’s why it looks grainy (I added a little bit of agar powder). Next time, I’ll take my time to make a proper compote that looks nice, shiny and smooth.
