Ms Lia Rimaldi may be one of the most enthusiastic bakers I have ever met and one who understands well the power of social media to promote her beautiful creations. Under the name of de Jaap Baking Co., Ms Rimaldi started his baking business just recently on June 2012. Inspired by her grandmother’s genuine Dutch recipes, Ms Rimaldi is now setting her course to conquer the world of butter cookies, tartlets, and cupcakes from her kitchen at the vicinity of Alam Sutera, Jakarta.
Enthusiastic as she may appear, she delivers her goodie stuffs often personally and communicates well with her customers. As a start, she also approaches established F&B outlets and also people of high statures in culinary world. In short time, she has been able to perform some trial and error for her products due to inputs from those notable people, marketed her products swiftly, and now getting ready for her own brick and mortar shop of her own soon.
An opportunity was given to me to taste how her products a while ago and I received several tartlets and butter cookies. Two types of tartlets, the blueberry cream cheese and Nutella toffee. While the butter cookies were of no ordinary type one you’d encounter anywhere – filled with peanut butter.
I had gone crazy after sampling these beautiful creatures. The blueberry cheese tartlet was awesome and I had my adventure with many gradations of flavors there – the sweetness, the sourness, and also different textures. But on the other hand, it was also quite tedious with the Nutella toffee tartlets as they were too focused on being sweet and nothing else but sweet. Perhaps Ms Rimaldi can work on a bit for that matter, on how to make it more colorful.
But the stardom goes for the butter cookies, even my wife gone crazy over it and left me only with one butter cookie. It was milky, sultry, and fancy. I like the sweet stuff but as I reached the peanut butter, it felt like I was heading to a happy ending. The flavors mixed and matched well! Not only that I found it ingenious but also made me crave more for it! Looking forward to fulfill myself with jars of butter cookies like these.
I applaud Ms Rimaldi’s passion for baking and looking forward to taste more from their creations. For further inquiries, do not hesitate to just twit @deJaapBakingCo and create your own adventure from there!
