Having forsaken all sweetmeats, syllabub and even my beloved Shrewsbury Cake during this time of Lent, I have been indulging my sweet tooth with plenty of fresh fruit.
However, I am NOT finding this deprivation of sugar particularly easy!
And upon coming into the kitchen this afternoon to pluck a delicious pear or two – I see that Cook has left me a thoughtless reminder of what I long for most.
I should add that as Cook is NOT without her own unique foibles – I shall looking forward to serving up a bitter sweet revenge of mine own!
De gustibus non est disputandum
