I thought I will share with all you food lovers, a great website, Gourmandines.com which I was introduced to by two people, one who knew I was looking for Valrhona chocolate and a fellow foodie. It is run by the people from the French Culinary School in Asia that is based in Kuala Lumpur.
You can get your supplies of Valrhona chocolate in small quantities for home baking and vanilla pods at pretty reasonable prices. They also supply gourmet foods like pasta, cheeses, dairy foods and etc. Not only that, they also have a selection of baking and kitchen utensils. You can also read about their cooking classes they conduct at the Institute which sounds very tempting. Delivery of items ordered with the value of RM150 or above gets free delivery within the Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Ampang, Sri Hartamas, Bangsar, Mont Kiara and Damansara. If you can't make the amount, share your purchase with your friends as a few of you will sure be able to spend RM150 in one order.
So for those of you who are cracking your head on what to buy for your friends for Christmas, head over there and order some of the stuff as any food lover with a taste of fine dining will love you for life if you get anything from there. (Ooops, that is a very subtle hint to anyone who wants to get my Xmas pressie this year, I would like a Microplane Grater, Valrhona chocolate plus those vanilla pods!)
