Chocolate cake with raspberry, cream and ganache
I am sure to have made mention in the past as to my sentimental tendencies. Whilst for the most part I can cleverly keep it under wraps, there are times where, despite my very best efforts it bubbles so close to the surface that I can’t help but let it spill over. Like now. And so, as a preemptive measure I must apologise should this whole post
become wobbly at the knees and crash-land in a pile of salty tears! Fortunately for you those of you reading this, it is the second incarnation of this post. The first I deleted after having realised it read like a bad c-grade Oscars acceptance speech. I promise to spare you the pain and more succinctly and eloquently bid my farewells!
To those of you out there that have humoured me by reading a post or two, Thank You! Your thoughts and comments have inspired me and have often put a smile on my face.
I am two months shy of having spent 7 years at Fisher & Paykel and I am truly the luckiest girl in the world for it. The opportunities and experiences it has afforded me I could never have dreamed of being fortunate enough to have. There is a Maori phrase which asks, ‘what is the most important thing in the world’ to which the response is ‘He Tangata! He Tangata! He Tangata!’ Tangata meaning people. If there is one thing that will stay with me forever it is the relationships and friendships I have made at F&P with people filled with such warmth and incredible talent. We would often laugh so hard we cried – need I say more?!
And so off I go to join forces with my partner in crime to undertake creative adventures of our own. Rest assured however I will be back, and with me I will be sure to bring some good old fashioned home baking!
