Young Hands Master Food Photography @ At 19 Culinary Studio



At 19 Culinary Studio conducted a special kind of class on 6 Dec which inter-twines creative photography and culinary skills in a collaborative effort with Exes Photography’s ‘The All Juniors’ Programme’.
As part of the programme, young aspiring shutterbugs teens will participate in a challenge to bake, decorate and put their talents to test to capture the best photographs of their culinary and food creations and eventually getting the right techniques and professional guidance in producing food photography.

This food photography collaboration programme is an exciting and interesting experience for the teenagers because it is an entertaining school holiday programme, focusing on educating, inspiring and developing the creativity of the younger generations. Teenagers aged 13–18 years old will have the opportunity to develop their interest in photography a step further by discovering and learning the essential skills from professional photographers while having fun in shoot out challenges in various locations.

At 19 Culinary Studio, these teen enthusiasts experienced a hands-on cupcakes baking and decorating session. The theme chosen for this challenge is Underwater World where the children will create underwater world creature designs out of fondant icing under the guidance of a cake decorator. Once they have completed their creations, the kids will get a chance to learn how best to take photographs of their decorated masterpieces in a professional way.

Private Class: Comptel Communications - 28 Nov & 1 Dec









The cooking class for a group training cum dinner organised for Comptel Communications was fun, fun, fun. What a way to close a training session of fellow colleagues from South East Asia and Europe, all under one roof, cooking away to savour their hard work of delicious Asian dishes afterwards.




Many of the participants were from Europe and their first time to South East Asia. Boy! For first timers, they sure can take spicy. The theme chosen by their local comrades was "Asian Flavours" and the recipes were Thai Mango Salad, Nyonya Baked Fish and Tom Yam Seafood Soup!

Everyone had fun decorating their dishes to show case their best presentation for the dishes to earn brownie points from Chef Khai. Creativity ruled the day and yes, it was a fund and delicious culinary experience. Bravo Comptel!

Cake of the month - Nov 2011





We just remembered that we have not been featuring our cake of the month for some time now. We have been so busy the past few months but we must tell you about our latest “Cake of the month”. Our best custom made order of the month for Nov 2011 is a very special Birthday cake for King Z!


Yeap, the request was for a Macaroons Tower Cake to celebrate King Z's birthday. The flavours chosen were pistachio (our best loved flavour), strawberry (our all time favourite) and chocolate (everyone's favourite) creating the wonderful colours of green, red and brown. The cake looks so so pretty and yummy. Have a Happy "Macaroonish" Birthday King Z from all of us At 19 Culinary Studio.

Private class: Chocolate Indulgence - 15 Nov







Adeline wanted to plan an enjoyable half day out, a secret getaway from the stress of work for a bunch of her colleagues to celebrate Bee Gaik's early retirement (how lucky!). OCBC Bank must be missing these girls (and guy) wondering where they were at on a hot tuesday afternoon!?




When Adeline e-mailed us. We were excited and suggested that she host a private cake baking class and we immediately came up with the idea of chocolate cakes. The girls (and guy!) learnt how to bake chocolate moist cake and chocolate marble cake. They also did a hands-on session of creaming and setting the chocolate cake with choclate ganache. Now isn't that what we call "Chocolate Indulgence"! Happy retirement Bee Gaik!

Private Class: Asian Flavours - 25 Sept




After Cristiane visited our school on Open Day recently, she was all excited to organise a private class for her and her Brazilian friends. We got talking and the group wanted to learn some Malaysian and Thai inspired recipes like Beef Rendang, Thai Mango Salad, Satay and Peanut Sauce. They even requested for a demo on Thai Mango Stick Rice which Chef Khai kindly obliged.



Needless to say, all of them enjoyed themselves and had family and children over to savour the delicious food that they have cooked during the 3 hours hands-on class with Chef Khai. We cooked them ketupat to go with the satay and peanut sauce and they were delighted to savour another Malaysian delight. Everyone went home full and happy!

Whoopie Pies!? Ever heard of them?










Whoopie pies, ever heard of them? They do look like macaroons but they are not. Imagine a dessert that is a cross between cookie, pie and cake, all rolled into one. Whoopie pies are a dessert that consists of two cake-like cookies sandwiching a creamy, frosting-like filing.



Whoopie pies are generally thought to have originated in Pennsylvania Dutch country as an Amish dessert. According to food historians, Amish women would bake these desserts and put them in their farmer husbands' lunch boxes. When the farmers find the treats in their lunch boxes, they would shout "whoopie!".



It is easy to think of them as macaroons as they do look like macaroons. Both are sweet desserts. We At 19 think of them as the next new wave after macaroons. Come and discover Whoopie Pies! Check out our class calender at www.at19culinary.com/schedule.html

Corporate Event - MSD Malaysia - 30 July







Etaine came with her sister for our Mad for Macarons class and next thing we know she booked her team mates for a private macaroons class on 30 July. She said she enjoyed baking the macaroons so much that she wanted to do it again and she also wanted her team mates to experience the same fun as she did in her first Mad for Macaroons class. Have fun is the key word for the day as the team from MSD all don on their aprons and pulled up their sleeves to try their hands in creating that delectable sweet dessert cookie.


One of the girls, Hui Kin, was so creative that she decided to change the shape of the macaroons to a "LOVE" shape as she wanted to give the macaroons to her boyfriend as a gift. How lucky he is! Our macaroons classes are fully booked until end Aug. Our next macaroons classes are on 18 & 27 Sept. For details, e-mail us at19culinary@yahoo.com or look out for our new class calender (Sept-Dec) launching end Aug.

Corporate Event - Hewlett Packard (2) - 22 July







We had just confirmed a booking from the Hewlett Packard's finance dept for a private baking class when Margaret of Hewlett Packard's CASS dept e-mailed us for a private baking class for her comrades too. They wanted macaroons. So it was, gals and guys alike came in full force with great enthusiasm to learn how to make those sweet little dessert cookies they hear so much about. Some have bought to try whilst some have only heard of it, never tasted any.

Nevertheless, they all loved to make some macaroons to bring home to their children, wives, husbands, boyfriends and girlfriends! Never fail as great gifts. Needless to say, everyone enjoyed themselves especially the guys who had better piping skills than some of the girls! So again, who says men should not be in the kitchen? If you are interested to hold a private baking class for you and your team mates as a reward, a bonding-motivation session, a thank you for job well done, or just to have fun, give us a call or e-mail us: at19culinary@yahoo.com

Raya Cupcakes - Thorn amongst the Roses







We did our 2nd Hari Raya Special cupcakes class on 21 July and there he was, Hafeez who was the thorn amongst the roses. But don't judge a book by its cover. Who says men can't bake or worst still, have nimble hands to shape fondant decorations to decorate cupcakes for Hari Raya!? Hafeez indeed a patient student, very eager to learn and had very creative hands. Once he don his apron, there was no stopping him from creating his beautiful Hari Raya cupcakes. His set of cupcakes was the best decorated of the lot. Qudos to Hafeez! You made our day!

Smiley Faces at our No.1 Class












Without a doubt, Our Mad for Macaroons class is still our No.1 class. All our macaroons class are booked solid until end Aug. Looking at our photo book, we just had to feature our latest macaroons class on 19 July because the students who came were all so cheerful and smiley. Look at their smiles and joy learning how to bake those sweet delectable treats at our studio. We are doing some R&D right now to set a new trend (fingers crossed), better than macaroons that is! What can be better? Well, keep a look out for our next quarter (Sept-Dec) class calender.

Cake of the month - June 2011


It’s time again for us to feature our “Cake of the month” to showcase what we consider our best custom made order cake. The Cake of the month for June is a special Birthday cake for Mrs Tan’s husband. Mrs Tan wanted a simple birthday cake decorated with all her husband’s favourite things as surprise gift for her husband. The request was golf, tennis, durian, their two dogs and desserts!

Mrs Tan was pleasantly surprised when she collected her cake and was pleased that all of her husband’s favourite things were on the cake. This is what she had to say “Look at the detailing. It’s marvelous. The detailing on the durian, even our two dogs looking like real rottweilers! Thank you At 19.” Well, another satisfied customer. We are happy when our customers are happy.

Corporate Event - Hewlett Packard (1) - 15 July











Hazlina was very excited when she approached us to hold a corporate event for her finance dept. They wanted to do a private baking class, something different from the usual cupcakes. Macaroons….well not really!? Yes, yes….let’s do bread & pastry. That’s something different. So, we designed a special bread & pastry class for Hewlett Packard’s finance dept based on the budget that they had to spend. Hazlina was pleased with our proposal and got her boss to approve it within a week. Wow! boss Tony also like to bake eh? We could see the smile on his face when he rolled and shape the dough into buns and bread. We even had him assemble his own special cafĂ© style tart.

Everyone enjoyed themselves and so did we! Everyone sat down for tea after all their hard work to sample their own bread & pastry….with more to take home too. Oops! Forgot to mention that we threw in a competition. There were 4 groups – Muffins, Pavola, Finger Roll and Bread Cakes. They were competing for cash vouchers from At 19 and judged by 3 simple criterias. We must say that the scores were very close but there can only be one winner….Finger Roll. Hip2 Hurray! Finger Roll put on a marvelous show of teamwork, creativeness and lots of tidiness. They even cleaned out the chef’s work station…how’s that for initiative!

Well, we hope Hazlina, boss Tony and team enjoyed the event as much as we did organizing it for them. Cheers!! If you would like to organize a corporate event for your team, talk to us, e-mail: at19culinary@yahoo.com

Bridal Shower: Cupcakes in a Pot - 3 July











When Azlina approached us to hold a cupcakes baking class for her sister, Azura's bridal shower, we were delighted. The theme is Orange, Orange, Orange! The bride-to-be is crazy over anything and everything orange from fruits to colours. We quickly put on our thinking caps and came up with Orange & Poppy Seed muffins for tea, orange daisies to decorate the tables. We even brought out our new orange coloured kitchen aid mixer just for Azura!

What an event it was. All the girls arrived in their best baju and everyone looked fantastic. Of course the bribe-to-be came in orange (without a doubt) and everyone enjoyed themselves baking, chit chatting, chilling out without boyfriends and husbands. Great stuff. We wish you the very best Azura....Happliy Ever After from all of us At 19!
