US Pizza, Summerton – Creamy Cheesy Pizza with Fonterra Anchor

Anchor is always coming out with new and creative ways to partner with various food outlets to give creations to its customers. This time, Anchor Food Professionals has partnered with local pizza maker US Pizza to come up with something special especially for cheese lovers.

The name of the campaign is called “PizzaArt”. This takes the enjoyment of pizza a notch up into an art form. The launching of artisanal pizzas is taking over the work by storm.

The recipes call for only the finest ingredients such as Anchor Mozzarella Shredded Cheese, Anchor Unsalted Butter, Anchor Colby Cheese, Anchor Cheddar Cheese and Mainland Edam Cheese. The outcome of this creation is called Cheese Boat Pizza – RM38

The egg in the boat is meant to be stirred and mixed in order to get the cheezy + chewy + sticky texture. This highlight of this pizza is of course the combination of different high quality of cheeses.

This pizza is dedicated to cheese lovers. I am one of those that falls into this category. I love this dish as the cheese flavour was really rich, chewy and sticky. The cheese was not too salty yet so tasty. I can eat this for the whole day. Check out the amount of cheese below!

Pot Pie Pizza – Launching soon, price to be determined. The origin of this dish is influenced by Chicken Pie. However, instead of the usual chicken pie in which the top part is covered with pastry, this Pot Pie Pizza is covered with pizza dough.

To enjoy this, you will need to turn it up side down first and you will have a mixture of mushrooms, minced meat and herbs that make the ingredients of this pot pie.

 

 

 

For those who order PizzaArt from US Pizza, you are entitled to an adorable fridge magnet while stock lasts!

Overall, with the introduction of Anchor cheese into the pizzas, US Pizza has advanced to a higher level with an enhanced and refined flavor into their pizzas.

Georgetown Heritage Day, a Uniquely Penang Experience

Penang celebrates the inscription of the city as a World Heritage City by UNESCO and the government has set July 7 as a public holiday for Penang every year. This public holiday is uniquely celebrated in Penang and not in any other states in Malaysia. But do you know that on this special day, there is actually a celebration of Penang’s heritage culture right in the heart of Georgetown?

Why is Penang Heritage Day on 7-July?

George Town World Heritage Day is a public holiday in Penang, to commemorate the inscription of George Town as a World Heritage City by UNESCO. This community-centered festival features diverse range of acts, from traditional dances, classical orchestra performance, big flag pole flipping, and cultural performance, to exhibitions and street performances; from the reenactment of street life in the 1990s, to food fests and special tours and talks; all devised and conducted by members of the communities of historic George Town.

What is happening on Heritage Day?

Meng Eng Soo (名英祠) Opening Day at Rope Walk Penang. Meng Eng Soo has a hundred years of history accomplished as the ancestral hall of Chinese secret society during the early days. Ghee Hin Kongsi (established in 1790) is located at Rope Walk Road of Georgetown Penang. In conjunction with the anniversary celebrations of UNESCO Georgetown World Heritage Site Day, “The Footpath of Our Sage Trailblazers – Meng Eng Soo Open Day” is a unique event being organized by the Council in showing the heyday livelihood of Penangites.

One of the highlights of the event is the varieties of traditional local delicacies, desserts and snacks. There are some childhood games from the early years as well . There are even some interesting acting/drama on the street as well to depict the lives of those living in the 50’s-70’s.

Zhao Homemade Pastry – Delivers Smooth and Fluffy Ogura Cakes To Your Doorstep

In recent months, we can see the latest craze that hit the town is chiffon cakes especially those in shopping malls. One of their selling points is the cakes are baked in-store in mass and once ready, the meter-long hot cakes are sliced in front of the crowd, sending aromatic smell to anticipating customers. Taste wise, nothing much to shout about as to me they are selling concept rather than taste of the cakes. If you are looking for a more intensified flavoured chiffon cake, look no further than Zhao Homemade Pastry.

As I was slightly influenced by the craze of chiffon cakes, I managed to discover one home bakery which bakes soft and fluffy Ogura Cake, which is “Zhao Homemade Pastry“. The bakery is based in home and specilizes in home delivery. So now you do not have to wait for 20 mins for your cake in the mall. Instead, Zhao Homemade Pastry is able to take your order and deliver to your door step within 1 day, which is really fast. Currently Zhao Homemade Pastry only delivers within Penang island only but soon they will be able to deliver to Prai and Mainland areas.

Check out the environmental-friendly packaging which are specially designed to keep your cake fresh during delivery. If you do not feel like going out and spend a few bucks for parking at the mall, check out Zhao Homemade Pastry at 012-8811268 or you can order online via: https://my.quufind.com/

The cakes that I have ordered are:

  1. Original Ogura Cake – RM20
  2. Pandan Ogura Cake – RM22

The taste of the original ogura sponge cake was packed with “eggy” flavour while the pandan flavored cake contained natural pandan fragrance. My personal favourite is of course the pandan flavored ogura cake which is unique and can’t be found in the bakery chains.

The good things about these homemade cakes are there are no added artificial coloring and preservatives. The sugar level is also kept to a minimum and hence the cakes are not sweet, which is perfect for me. As there are no preservatives, it is highly recommended to consume the cake within the same day, otherwise it must be kept in the fridge immediately.

Overall, the cakes were soft and fluffy. The delivery option makes life easy for people like me who enjoys eating chiffon cakes for my afternoon tea but lazy to get out from the house.
