The holidays are just around the corner and it’s the perfect excuse for everybody’s favourite meal; that one meal that combines a hearty breakfast and a wholesome lunch – BRUNCH.

Fret not, with this 5 easy-to-make recipes from us, hosting brunch will seem like a breeze! 😉

1. Vanilla Waffles

Here’s 5 Cocktails Using Beer!

Not going for Beerfest Asia 2018? We got you covered! Enjoy 5 refreshing easy-drinking summer beer cocktails right in the comfort of your own home.

1. Soju with Beer (Somaek)

Soju is taking Singapore by storm! While some might find it too strong to drink on its own, did you know that it goes surprisingly well with beer? It enhances the sweetness of the beer while making it smooth. Koreans call this concoction Somaek, an abbreviation of 2 Korean words; Soju (Soju) and Maekju (Beer).

  1. Choose your favourite flavour of Soju (Original, Grapefruit, White Grape, etc).
  2. Pour half a pint of beer into a glass.
  3. Pour either 125ml of Soju or 2 Shots. Stir well.
  4. Bonus: A Korean trick by using chopsticks to mix; put 1 chopsticks at each end of the cup, and bring them together fast in a clapping motion so the liquid and gas from the beer stirs by itself.

Recommended Item: ToTT Copper Plated Heavy Jigger

2. Espresso Stout

Go bold with this creamy concoction that brings out the intense coffee aroma and deep roasted malt. Pair this thirst quencher with a Seafood Pie for an extra ooomph. Definitely a favourite for those looking for intensity and richness in their drinks!

Recommended Item: Cuisinart Nut And Spice Grinder

  2. Shake the mixture and strain it into a salted pint glass.
  3. Flip a Corona upside down and place it into the drink
  4. Enjoy as the Corona dispenses slowly into your Coronarita!

Recommended Item: ToTT Copper Plated 2-Piece Cocktail Shaker

4. Beer Găo

Time for a recipe created right here in Singapore ! You’ve probably heard people at your hawker centres ordering their Coffee through terms like Kopi O Kosong, Kopi Xiu Dai, or even Kopi Gao! But did you know you can order a BeerGao too?! This local favourite is a simple concoction that combines the refreshing zest of lager and deep nutty flavours of stout.

  1. Pour ½ pint of lager beer into glass. 
  2. Pour ½ pint of stout into a glass and stir.
  3. Sit back, relax.
  4. Bonus: Test your local hawker’s level of customer service and just shout “Beer Gao!”; chances are, they’ll bring you exactly what you need!

Mother’s Day Special: An interview with one of our favourite Chef Moms, Chef Michele Ow

Dinner is better when we eat together. Chef Michele firmly believes that great food can bring people together, create friendships and family dinners build closer relationships.

This Mother’s Day, we sit down her and find out how her child influenced her into becoming a professional chef herself.

1. Tell us how you came to be a chef! 
I’ve always cooked for my family from a tender age. However, it started professionally for me when my Son loves macarons so much that I decided to learn to bake them. To my surprise, they were very well received and remains my signature dish till now.

2. Being a mother yourself, do you cook often for your kids?
I plan my family’s meal every day and either cook or at least prepare the food in the morning with specific directions on the type of cooking style to ensure that the meal maintains its best nutrition and taste, and of course, an overall balanced meal.

3. Everyone loves food cooked by the Mom – what’s your favourite dish cooked by Mom? 
It would be my mother’s signature pineapple tarts!

4. How do you plan to make this day special for Mom? 
I will cook her favourite dish, Vongole.

5. Finally, would you be able to share a simple yet delicious recipe for our readers to try this Mother’s Day? 
I will therefore share this 5 minute Vongole recipe with our readers:

Ingredients:

500g clams
6 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
Handful of chopped parsley
1/2 cup white wine
Butter, olive oil
Chilli Flakes -optional

Directions:

1) Heat butter and olive oil and fry garlic (and Chilli flakes if using) for 1-2 minutes.

2) Add white wine to deglaze letting it bubble to get most of the alcohol evaporated

3) Add clams and cover lid for 3-5 minutes on high heat until all shells pop open

4) Stir in parsley for garnish
