Peach crumble Learn
My soul and hands belong in the kitchen. It's my happy place, and best of all is that it allows me to gift happiness to others.
In 2019, I created a virtual gourmet group called "Kaust, what have you cooked today?", which now counts 510 members. During lockdown the group really blossomed as I was also sharing inspirational posts/recipes.
As for the themed cooking challenges, they really made a difference when the lockdown first started. The challenges were very well received because everyone was at home, cooking more than usual, since the restaurants were closed.
Both have kept our spirits up in time of isolation.
And the award for the most inaesthetic but most delicious and easy dessert goes to.... ???! Zingy soft pieces of fruit with buttery chewy/crispy topping. Can’t go wrong with that! If this dessert would bring a companion to the award ceremony it would definitely be a scoop of ice cream or a delicious drizzle of custard.
