Early morning is my favourite time of the day. On a sleepy weekday, when the sun is still just a watery wash over your head, and the night time chill in the air still lingers, I love to wander around and revel in the tranquillity – the calm before the storm of another day comes rushing past.
This week, I took an entire day to bake something completely out of the blue. Without recipe or guidance, I drove down to the shops on quiet roads, and bought ingredients that I wanted to combine. I took my time to wander the aisles and finally settled on some good white chocolate, eager to augment it’s sweet intensity by caramelisation.
