What Happened At Our First Food Swap Event at Bec’s Table

Well, what happened at our first food swap?  

Some of you have been asking about our food swap event, so here it is.  It was brilliant.  

Those involved not only shared their yummy treats but shared the recipes too.  We all handed in a selection of items you’d pay around $5 for at a Farmers Market.  How this worked was fun.  I made up some monopoly type money (Bec’s Table Bucks) and gave a $5 Bec’s Buck for every item brought.   Continue reading “What Happened At Our First Food Swap Event at Bec’s Table”

Why Do My Cookies Spread? Recipe fixes

Cookies or biscuit’s that have common problems.  I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but Baking truly is a science.  That’s why I get more questions for Baked Goods than any other.  

Spreading cookies would have to be one of the most FAQ in Bake Club.  I thought I’d share my answers here just in case you’re having problems too.   Continue reading “Why Do My Cookies Spread? Recipe fixes”

Tiramisu Cake Recipe

We made this amazing Tiramisu Cake at our, Amazing Cake, Bake Club Meeting, last term.  I loved it, so I’m sharing it. 

Yes, Tiramisu Cake, rather than a pudding.  A little more elegant don’t you think?

We got the recipe from a cookbook called “The Italian Baker” by Melissa Forti. There’re quite a few good recipes in this one, great addition to any cookbook library.  Continue reading “Tiramisu Cake Recipe”

Amazing Cakes from Bec’s Table Bake Club

Last term in Bake Club, we made these Amazing Cakes. I thought I’d throw out a bit of a challenge, and the girls loved it. Phew.  I’m so proud how these cakes turned out.  Some were a huge challenge but even after a bit of cussing, we all deemed them to be brilliant.  Continue reading “Amazing Cakes from Bec’s Table Bake Club”

Before we get into what’s Yum Cha, Dim Sum.

I’d like to share how I learnt to put these asian recipes together. 

I’m not sure if some of you know this but when I was doing my Patisserie training and Teaching at Chisholm, my days were filled being around international students. 

It was awesome, Continue reading “Yum Cha / Dim Sum Class at Bec’s Table”

New Free Food Swap Event At Bec’s Table

How about a Free Food Swap Event?

I’m always looking for ways to give back to my wonderful students at the cooking school.  Without you, I wouldn’t be here.  

Therefore I’m looking for expressions of interest.  I want to hold a Food Swap Event at the cooking school.

I can only offer entry to people who have done a class at the cooking school at the moment.   Our open days can draw a crowd of up to 200 people, and this is more than we’ll be able to handle for a food swap event, especially the first one. Continue reading “New Free Food Swap Event At Bec’s Table”
