Exam !

Sooooooooo happy that finally we passed our assessment day...I was quite worried about it because it took us long time in the practical class to make opera last time...Anyway, it is over !

Since last time we did the opera gateau. Most of us made the ganach too thin by putting too much sugar syrup...I was afraid of that so I didn't put sugar syrup at all today. It turned out that the ganach was not shiny as it should be...and I found out that most of us did the same...

My jaconde was ok, the butter cream was ok but the ganache and the decoration...*sigh*

My ugly plated Opera...

We were waiting for the result.

Then after that Seok and I went to have dinner at Red Chilli Sichuan where I went before with Ping and Sam. Seok said he was very stressed in the kitchen today and when he was stressed, he want to eat something very spicy.

Steamed rice $3 per person. I think their rice was too hard for my liking.

Mapo Tofu $13.80 Hot and spicy silky tofu with minced pork. A few first spoons it was normal for me...but the more I ate, the more delicious it was ^ ^

Seok like it also.

Laziji : Deep fried chicken with dried chilli $16.80 I wanna try this dish since I went to Dainty Sichuan Food in Melbourne. I think here was ok..but not so special...Seok loves it ^ ^

Then Sam came for 5 mins to pick Stella and Heidi's Opera Cake...

Happy happy sichuan food.

We finished it all...Thank you Seok for being my dinner friend !

the mapo tofu looks so delish!

this is really one of the simplest dishes to make anywhere in the world so long as you can get hold of tofu and sauce package.

Here I bought a sauce pack so as to skip all the seasonings! and i will try this friday after work.
