Make the effort to create this really special chocolate cake to simply thrill your guests
Cold and dark, winter slows the world. It’s good to be indoors filling the house with the lovely smell of stew simmering on the hob or a joint slow roasting in the oven tucked round with all the trimmings. Warm the kitchen baking cakes and those you love with pots of soup. Outside not much grows and what does grow does it slowly but frost makes the root vegetables and greens very good and they marry well with pulses. Drear days are brightened with lots of celebrations - it's party time with the excitement of Christmas and the joy of New Year. February is the harshest month - treasure your love on Valentine’s Day with wonderful treats and plenty of chocolate.
