Week 48 | January 24, 2011

Whiskey + milk chocolate. A surprisingly nice pairing. How about in the form of a flourless chocolate cake? I like that idea, with a crisp meringue top to cut through the richness of uninterrupted chocolate. But wait, there’s more.

It seems condemnable to rely only on nuts and chocolate when the markets are overflowing with ripe fruit. I’ll find a way to sneak some cherries into the mix.
