HELLO ALL ! It’s been a long while since I last updated this space. I thank all who had messaged and emailed me with well wishes for my father. He has made gradual progress and is getting stronger. We are doing all we can to help him elevate his spirits and enhance his immunity against infections. The whole episode has been a life changing albeit tiring experience – one from which we have learnt not to take good health for granted , realised that good healthcare in Singapore can be expensive and become more aware how government’s incessant stress on preparing for an aging population rings so true and wise….
Work commitments have also taken me away to the US and Europe for a whole month, making it practically impossible for me to keep up with my blogging hobby. I did however, managed to steal some time off to attend Joycelyn Shu’s Fabulous Fall Desserts at Shermay’s Cooking School.
This recipe yields one of the best fruit cakes I have ever tasted and it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise when you have a cake that is laden with luscious tart Italian Amarena cherries, Valrhona chocolate chips and fresh crunchy walnuts. I had known instantly that I would want to bake this for Christmas when I had first tasted this. Hence,2 of the items on my thankfully short shopping list during my business trip last month was a monolithic tin of Amarena Cherries and a bottle of Kirsch.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to share the recipe here but imagine a fine crumbed chocolate cake filled with dark chocolate chips ,accented with sour cherries and bathed in a thin veil of Kirsch glaze, you could probably formulate something close to this.
I hope I will be back again really soon and I promise the next time, there will be goodies to share…. Have a Great Holiday and Be Well!
