Kitchen Sounds: Iced Matcha Latte

I finally bit and got an external microphone for my camera, and decided to test it. Due to the recent heatwave, I made an iced matcha latte. When I reviewed the footage, I really enjoyed the sounds of the latte-making process, and decided to keep them in instead of overlaying with music.

This is not quite ASMR as I filmed this next to my fridge and there is some hum from the machinery, and the counter I was using was the glass range, so there were some sharp drops. Hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

Stay cool!

Making a foamy matcha latte

Thanks to QuirkyAesthetics, I decided to wake up one morning and film the process of making a matcha latte. Unfortunately for me, my frother was not cooperating and I was surprised with stiff foam –  so a foamy cat matcha latte was born.

Carbonara for one

One of my favourite pasta dishes has to be spaghetti carbonara. I found that carbonara was not a readily available dish at most restaurants, and so the first carbonara dish I ever ate was made by yours truly. To date, I’ve had it only a handful of times at restaurants, while I’ve made it several times at home.

Some people are very protective over carbonara; many denounce the use of any meat other than pancetta, no peas, no milk or cream, etc. I actually love variations, but I tried to keep it simple with items found at most grocery stores.

Carbonara is a dish best eaten right away as it turns dry when left over. With that in mind, this is a recipe that feeds one. Adjust accordingly. Continue reading Carbonara for one

Perfecting the Matcha Latte

I first started writing this post over two years ago, but sadly, was not able to perfect the matcha latte until now. There is definitely room for improvement, especially with my latte art skills, but I am finally satisfied with the end product.

The main issues I faced were clumpy matcha, lackluster foam, and an absence of the vibrant green colour that adorns so many matcha lattes I’ve bought.  Continue reading Perfecting the Matcha Latte

Orange Slice Latte

After seeing photos of what appeared to be a latte with an orange slice floating around Instagram, I tried to decode how to make it. After scouring the internet, I found recipe for a coffee latte… but being me, I decided to try my hand at a tea latte version. Continue reading Orange Slice Latte
