I thought I'd show you what prompted me to begin Project HealthKick. As I will prove, I was forced into it by a devilish pastry that has no shame.
This is the Black Forest Brioche from Adriano Zumbo Patissier.
Soft, spongey brioche cake base - check. Fresh cream whipped around tart, juicy red cherries - check. Lashings of grated chocolate - check, check. Light dusting of fine icing sugar - check.
- "Jury, what is your verdict?"
- "Guilty, as charged!"
PS: I am still doing Project HealthKick but have fallen off the wagon for the weekend. Put another way, I have about 3 fingers of each hand clutching the back of the wagon as it speeds round the corner...
