Our kitchen has turned into a cookie/cake/truffle factory and we are all feeling slightly sick from eating so many sweet things. All in the name of research that is.
We have made Cranberry and Pistachio Biscotti,
Hand Made Truffles – absolutely the best even if I say so myself
Xmas Jewel Cakes, jam packed with candied fruit and nuts
Torta di Nocciole e Clementini – an Italian extravaganza which we make with home made candied clementines, soaked in brandy and mixed with toasted almonds and hazelnuts, fatty sultanas and chocolate
There are also hand made chocolates , raw chocolate truffles, Baci di Dama and all manner of home-made cookies waiting to be packed.
And I have finally finished packing the Xmas puddings.
Time for lunch – we’re off to Deasy’s!
