Gong Hei Fatt Choy! May the Year of the Ox be abundant and healthy for one and all!
One of the rare finds that I had the privilege of trying and enjoying every morsel of were the French sweets from ET Artisan Sweets. When I first got the e-flyer, I must admit I was sceptical of yet another home-baker trying to make it good. But of course, the best marketing is the non-avaibility of product and so, I was even more determined to order a bunch of goodies even though the Christmas season was over. After all, who doesn't want to eat dessert??
Their passion for perfect quality is evident.
The use of pure Valrhona chocolate in the Jivara crunchy tart was sin in itself. Just open your mouth and let it all pour in! The advice was to eat it on the day it is baked - well, if you know what you're going to get, you would not wait till tomorrow.
And of course, those macarons! Perfectly shaped and with the right chewiness on the inside of a crisp almond shell, and every single flavour (Passion Jivara, Chocochip, Berry Chocolate and Blackforest) I sampled was good - too difficult to pick out a winner. They all are! And for the sugar conscious, they are not cloyingly sweet like many macarons are.
The goodies come packed in a pretty box too! Definitely something I wouldn't mind receiving everyday. And according to them, if that longing is fulfilled, wouldn't my soul be sweet. That's not so hard to do, is it?
