Today is international tea day and what better way to celebrate than a nice cuppa Ceylon Assam with a piece of homemade chocolate cake. As a tea junkie I am all for celebrating this wonderful beverage and find that even in the most stressful situations tea has a calming effect.
Meanwhile it has been a busy week on the cooking front so here are a couple more food porn photos to drool over.
Fresh fruits of the forest (Supermarket actually) with whipped cream and my first homemade meringues using some left over egg whites. The meringues turned out perfect, light and powdery crispy. It won’t be the last time. Below a loaf I made earlier in the week, which turned out to be the best so far but there is still room for improvement.
