Oh-so-fine Food



Hors d'oeuvres

You either love them to no end,

or have no opinions about them whatsoever.

As for me, I have to admit that I'm a big fan. hors d'oeuvres allow you to get maximum flavour with minimal bloat. I'm sure every foodie out there understands me. Well, sometimes big doesn't mean better. Sometimes, great things come in small packages! :)

But of course that's when the hors d'oeuvres are made by top chefs and where quality of ingredients aren't compromised. that's the big difference.

Ooo and it helps that they're called hors d'oeuvres (appetisers). haha. it just sounds so.. hmm yummy? Okay that sounds really bimbotic. haha. don't mind me, i just dig French :) But it's a tough language to learn!

So I was at this lovely post event thank you dinner at Goodwood Park Hotel yesterday and well, I took some lovely photos of the hors d'oeuvres and food. they're just too pretty! and yes they tasted fantastic :)

Was helping out my aunt with the NNI Brain Damage Research fund-raising pottery exhibition-sale at the hotel. The pottery are soooo beautiful I tell you!

Okay, back to the food. Here are the photos. Enjoy!



I forgot what they called it. But it tasted and looked like deconstructed vegetable soup or something. There was this jelly thing at the bottom and bacon bits. It was yum though.




Chicken Consomme with cute vegetables that looked as if they've been cut using a hole puncher!




Durian log cake. Okay i think that says alot. As usual, it's the bomb.




Poached pear in red wine. This was lovely.




Profiterole on chocolate tart. The profiterole was stuffed with whisky spiked chestnut filling I think. This one was amazing.




Pistachio Creme Brulee! First time having a pistachio based creme brulee and I must say I quite like it. It has a nutty undertaste that's rather pleasant.




And they had cute christmas cookies! :) I liked the christmas tree one. I snuck one home for my dear sis.

So there you have it... fine hors d'oeuvres that look small but taste phenomenal!
