Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Peach and mint cake
No, no, I did not bake this. It comes from one of the new local cafés in town. There are a few that have opened these last few months, an Italian one which I will eventually blog about, and two others situated on the high street. They are true independent cafés, not chains, which is great, although I fear they will not last very long, like so many local shops. The one where I had this delicious piece of cake is rather large and bare, like a clean cafeteria, but I absolutely love it because of the quality of its products and because it has inventive desserts. I thought a peach and mint cake was original and summery to go in a cream tea, so I tried it. And it tastes as good as it looks: moist, creamy, just soft enough. By far the best cake I had in months. And the best peaches I had too. Peaches just taste better in a cake.
