Eggs and cream are the staple food of (classic) desserts. Flans, crème brûlée, crema Catalana, mousse, are all made with these basic ingredients; sometimes directly but often using a custard base.

In the previous post I talked about getting started with generative adversarial networks (GANs) and applied these types of networks to the MNIST dataset. In that application we limited ourselves to 1D black-and-white images which are fairly easy for a network to learn. Eventually though, we want to switch to...

Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are one of the hot topics within Deep Learning right now and are applied to various tasks, ranging from un/semi-supervised learning to generating images. These networks were originally introduced by Ian Goodfellow et al. in 2014: We propose a new framework for estimating generative models via...

Most of my food projects are first published on Instagram. Some interesting ones I also post here with a full recipe. For this I required a fast and (most importantly) simple way to add Instagram posts to a Jekyll blog. For this I created a shell script that can automatically...

It has been over two years since the last full update of my website itself and it was time for an upgrade! I started from scratch and rebuild the whole underlying Jekyll structure and all of the CSS. The main goal was to create a new fresh design while keeping...

Ingredients (filling) Anise seeds (few tea spoons, by taste), note: not star anise Chocolate 180 grams, white Heavy cream...
