A week after coming back from France it’s safe to say I’m still easing myself back in on the baking front by going for the dessert that probably requires the least amount of finesse possible: eton mess. But, being modest as per, it did taste pretty good, so I personally am not complaining.
So after a winter in working in France I am finally back in the UK, and while it’s safe to say it has been an amazing 5 months I am ready for a detox, a really good sleep and a break from alpine carbs. While I would be quite happy never to see tartiflette or beef bourginon again in my life, I have certainly missed my kitchen and actually being able to bake with any ingredients I want. So, 3 days back in after my friend Jess’s birthday, I have my first post of the Summer for you which has to be the height of originality: chocolate and vanilla birthday cake.
