Vegan autumn hazelnut cake

Nothing is more autumnal than nuts and chocolate to me, and red leaves (finally a season with colours matching my hair!). I really love autumn, maybe also because it’s my birthday season and I am still a child at heart. I designed this cake because I wanted something a bit complex to deal with but […]

I love thyme. I have a very perky plant on my balcony and it needs regular trimming. It’s so aromatic and delicious and I love to pair it with sweet stuff, like most herbs! I devised this lemon and thyme and figs cake because figs were really delicious and pretty, and the thyme needed trimming […]

Chocolate, almond and caramel tartlets (vegan)

I love making vegan caramel, I usually love further flavouring it with other elements (not just salt, but also whiskey, pepper or whatever makes you happy). For these tartlets I made a simple caramel sauce because the cacao pastry and the mousse were so rich I didn’t want to make it overwhelming. It was so […]
