Jo’s Favourite Chocolate Brownies

Hi everyone!

Chocolate Brownie served with Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

After a long absence of recipe sharing, I am finally back in Australia in time for my graduation and short trip around Hobart and Melbourne with my family! It was great fun to be able to go round and enjoy so many different types of food. But now that I am back and pretty much settled back into the Hobart lifestyle, I am ready to continue my pastry journey. For this post, my friend ( Kenny ) is very kind enough to lend me his Canon EOS 40D to snap some photos. I really hope they are a huge improvement after getting photo editing tips as well from my other friends.  If they aren’t then well I must be a horrible photographer! lol! But the main reason is to experiment with a DSLR compared to the usual compact cameras that I usually use and to try to get my submissions accepted by foodgawker.com to increase my blog traffic. Let me know what you think 🙂

Baking Class Experience

My first ever baking class was a blast, I had not idea what to expect but being able to work with Chef Danny is just fantastic. This will definitely won’t be my last baking class.  I manage to get plenty great advices and ideas that will help out with my baking techniques. I just wished I could have learned bread making from him since he specializes in bread making.

Overall, the 5 hour session of macaroons, Oreo cheese cakes and hot chocolate soufflé was definitely worth it! I managed to gain some theoretical knowledge and hands on experience when it came to preparing  these recipes. The only thing that was a little disappointing was that we only made the macaroon from pre mix  instead of doing it from scratch. But Chef Danny was kind enough to provide me with fantastic advise on how to do it from scratch and he even gave me a recipe that he personally tested! 🙂 So I will definitely attempt that recipe on my own when I feel confident enough. But anyway’s enough of my jibber jabber, here are some pictures to show what I done on my baking class.  Enjoy!
