We Live In Eggs citing Times


Humpty Dumpty sat in the mall
Thinking life would be just a ball
Then all these people
With hammer and chisel
Cracked him and broke him in front of all.












And all the kings horses and all the king's men, couldn't give a toss.

Poor Humpty, if that was indeed what happened. But don't worry, no eggs were harmed in the production of this blog.

You see, a few months back, Ryan Khang of the Cooking House and My Nourishment magazine, asked if I would be interested in contributing a few recipes for this collaboration cookbook between Nutriplus and a few regular chefs who taught in Cooking House. I represent the "non-chef" category, much like the laity and the clergy. Celibacy not being my thing, I clearly am the laity. So, I thought, why not, afterall, it will be decades before I finally realise my dream of appearing in print, in a cookbook.

Time flies by in the blink of an eye, and before you know it, the book has been gestated and it was birthing time. Or in this case, hatching time.


Ta-dah, the unveiling of the book, which sat within the giant egg. Hypothetically, if the egg came from a bird, you'd be looking at a Garuda or Pterodactyl. (yes yes, I know they're not birds).


One of the contributing chefs was Medal Winning International Pastry Chef, Leslie Teong, who wins medals the way Pete Sampras wins Grand Slam titles.


A rather pleasant unexpected visitor. Who actually came to see one of the other contributors, Swee San, that sultry looking pastry chef.


Ryan and Gina. Gina is my Magimix see foo. This woman makes cooking and baking look so simple. Of course, it isnt THAT simple.










Anyway, Leslie, the celeb chef, was rather chuffed to meet our delectable Su. ;) Apparently he is her idol as well.

The book is available as far as I know, for now, in front of the Jusco Supermarket in Mid Valley Megamall, at the Nutriplus booth. It is selling for RM70, (hard cover la), but if you buy RM30 worth of Nutriplus products, you can buy the book for RM35. Makes sense to buy the products.

There is also a series of baking demos by all the contributors of the book at the booth, over the next two weekends.



Special thanks to Ryan, Edyth and Mei Kei of the Cooking House for always being so supportive and letting me be a part of this fun project.

Eh what else does Nutriplus sell aside from eggs? I can't fathom buying RM30 worth of eggs for just me and Tim. We'll be shitting our eggs within a week.

Congratulations FBB!! Another item ticked off the list of "seemingly ambitious things to do before I start to grey and sag which turned out to be, hah, quite easily achievable after all!" We can only all be so industrious...

thenomadGourmand said...

fatboybakes said...

TNG, i not sure la, when or if it'll be in circulation. maybe its like those best seller books, hardcover first, then few months later paperback version come out. hahahah.

minchow, actually in that list, (a lot of things unachieved), the book thing was a whole book, not a 1/10th thing. so cant tick yet.
