Posh Nosh: Foret Noir
The Straits Times
Tuesday, Dec 10, 2013
The flavour combinations that go into Christmas logcakes can be mind-boggling. Most times, what I want is a simple chocolate log.
The Audacious Cakery in Everton Park delivers that in Foret Noir, modelled on a black forest cake.
It is simple but they get all the important things right: the flavour of the chocolate mousse, made with dark Valrhona chocolate, is properly deep and dark, and Kirsch-soaked cherries give a light boozy kick. This is not the most fancy cake on offer for Christmas, but it is one I plan to enjoy after a food-coma-inducing turkey meal.
Foret Noir, $68 for small (serves up to eight), $80 for large (serves up to 15), from The Audacious Cakery, Block 2, Everton Park, 01-61. Call 6223-3047 three days in advance to order. Order before Friday and get a 10 per cent discount. Free delivery to one location for orders of $200 and above.
