52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 51 Food

The penultimate week of the Smartphone Challenge has the topic of ‘food’.

There’s a (relatively) new boulangerie/patisserie in the village. The baguettes are great, as are the quiches, and last week I tried, for the first time, their Rhum Baba – with overtones of Black Forest Gateau.

It was amazing – even better than it looked. Shouldn’t be allowed.
