Wife loves lamb rack and has requested this for her birthday dinner last week. I had already planned to make the Scallops with sweet corn puree and quail eggs as starter for the dinner and wanted to keep the main course simple, at least to keep the cooking process simple on that day itself. As such, the thought of using the sous vide method to cook the rack of lamb came to mind.

Gordon Ramsay is one celebrity chef whom I admire very much. Not so much for his TV programmes, as I find him speaking too fast on TV, but for his cooking skills, ideas and attention to detail. I am also very impressed with his drive and ambition - rising from a 17-year-old kitchen apprentice to a 3-star Michelin Chef today.

You're the sunshine in my morning
and the bird that sings my song.
In this life when I am troubled
it's you who keeps me strong.
You're the wind beneath my wings
as this eagle takes to flight.
You're the stars that brighten up my sky
in the darkness of the night.
You're the mother of my children
and the air that gives me life.
My truest friend of all...
my heart, my soul, my wife.
Happy Birthday, my dearest.

We live in Tiong Bahru and are spoilt for choice when it comes to Sunday breakfast. The famous Tiong Bahru food center, Tiong Bahru Bakery by Gontran Cherrier, Forty Hands Cafe, The Orange Thimble Cafe, Drips Bakery Cafe, Flock Cafe..... The list goes on and on. The estate is less than a tenth of a square kilometer in size but there are just so many interesting eateries, restaurants, bakeries and cafes in this small but hip neighbourhood but we are not complaining. :D
This Sunday morning though, we decided to make our own breakfast at home. Wife found this recipe from the Clinton Street Baking Company Cookbook and had been wanting to make their famous buttermilk biscuit for some time and finally made this yesterday.

We left Sorell fruit farm happily and drove towards our next destination, Port Arthur. Port Arthur is a small town and former convict settlement on the Tasman Peninsula. The historic site was entered on the UNESCO World Heritage register in 2010 and is the best-preserved convict settlement in Australia and among the most significant convict era sites in the world.

Barolo wines are derived from the Nebbiolo grape and produced in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. This is truly one of the world's best red wines and is an example of a wine that gets better and better with age.
Barolo is not cheap and definitely not everyone's entry-level, everyday drinking wine (At least not for me). Besides the high quality nose and palate, one main reason for its high price tag is that the Barolo is a wine that is difficult to make.
