Mother Of All Grains - Quinoa (小小米)

Quinoa (pronounced Keen-Wah or Ken-Wa) is originated from the Andean region of South America and it is considered by the Incas as the "Mother of All Grains". Unlike other grains, quinoa boasts a complete protein because it contains 8 essential amino acids which is normally found in meat, fish, eggs but rarely in vegetables.

Assorted Chiffon Tins

This lovely Heartshape Chiffon Tin is one of the dream pan for most bakers (it is not available in Singapore; at least not in those baking ingredients shop like sunlik, phoon huat or bake king) and it is available online from Rakuten or Japan (departmental store). The pan is slight heavier as compared to the normal chiffon tin we get in Singapore and the price is also much higher (between 4 - 5 times the price of a normal chiffon tin in Singapore) due to the overseas postage and etc.

So if any of your friends or yourself is planning to go Japan, perhaps you could check out this lovely pan at their departmental stores such as Tokyo Hands (kitchenware section) for less than SG$30.00


But if shape is your main concern, you can easily grab any metal chiffon tin at any of the local baking ingredients shops mentioned above. The price range from SG$6+ to S$20+ depending on the size and material made. I have 3 chiffon tins in total which are 2 rounds and a heartshape from size 15cm and 20cm.
