Watsons Blackmores Radiance Bloggers Event at Cookyn

Sunday, April 15, 2012


A few weeks ago, I attended Watsons Blackmores Radiance Bloggers Event held over at Cookyn Inc.

Although Cookyn Inc isn't the most friendly to get to via public transport, I must say that I was glad that I went there despite getting off work late.

By the time I reach there, all the other bloggers were in the midst of preparing Berry Yoghurt Trifle so I quickly put on my cooking gear and got down to making my very own Berry Yoghurt Trifle and here's the end result!


Its really easy to make this. The only thing that you should remember is to use Greek yogurt instead of regular yoghurt. This is because Greek yogurt is thicker, this ensures that you can do layering with the first layer being sponge cake, followed by yogurt, strawberry sauce, yogurt, strawberry sauce, muesli and finally lay the fruits on top.

I say this is perfect for gatherings and you need not worry about the extra calories because its yogurt but if you are really that conscious, you can go without any strawberry sauce.

Here's Wei Ling from Watsons and me posing for a picture before we begin to make our 2nd dish!


Check out all of the ingredients below. These are all of the ingredients that we will be using to make Vietnamese Spring Roll!


There's beehoon, chicken breast, mango, carrot, basil leaves, mint leaves.

Here's my first attempt at making Vietnamese Spring Rolls. What do you think of it?


I love the fact that one can see the basil and mint leaves so clearly even after wrapping it up.

Tried to be a little more creative by putting the sauce at the side. Did I mention that the sauce was made of seafood sauce and chunky peanut butter? Yums!


The 3rd and last dish of the day that we prepared ourselves is....



Which I'm sure is a favourite of many.


Cooking directions for oven-baked Salmon


1) Place salmon on cooking paper
2) Add a pinch of salt and pepper
3) Place cherry tomatoes and capsicum along with Chorizo on top
4) Add a teaspoon of butter
5) Add 1-2 tablespoon of chicken stock before wrapping it up with the cooking paper and baking it in the oven.


Just when we thought that it would be all for the night, Cookyn staff surprised us with more food that they prepared specially for us.

The first one being -

Brown rice salad with mixed vegetables and prawn


Chicken in Sake and Huatiao Wine

This is very fusion which I like!

Clams and tomato soup

This is very refreshing!

We were already quite full by then but how can we not give in especially when its salmon? The salmon is really good. I swear it looks even better in real life!


And here's my Berry Yogurt Trifle topped with mint leaves as garnish. It sure does look good, doesn't it?


The good people at Cookyn also prepared this for us which got a lot of oohhs and aahhs from the girls.

Chocolate Truffle


Here's a group picture of all of us!
