Japanese-French Fusion Cooking Class at Lewin Terrace

25 Apr 2015

I had such a fantastic time at the Spoonful cooking workshop last time that I attended another workshop recently. It’s a hands-on cum demo workshop held at Lewin Terrace and I got to learn how to make Japanese-French fusion dishes taught by Chef Kano, chef de cuisine of the restaurant. The 3-course lunch we made in class:

Recipe :: Upside Down Lemon Meringue Pie

Upside Down Lemon Meringue Pie x The Moonberry Blog

Recently I was invited to have dinner at a friend’s place and she made Chocolate Pavlova. I asked, “What’s a pavlova?!”. She replied that it’s a meringue cake with a crisp crust and marshmallow-y inside, usually topped with whipped cream and fruit. I’d never heard of it before, she said it’s an Australian/New Zealand dessert. Ah, no wonder.

I’ve been obsessed over meringue lately, don’t ask me why coz I don’t have an answer to that. I’m also in the mood for tart flavors, so I looked up recipes and came across Martha Stewart’s Upside Down Lemon Meringue Pie which fulfils both criteria. I rolled up my sleeves last weekend and made it in my kitchen.
