The highlights – other than the company – were the desserts… They’re the things we don’t eat very often, anymore. The Pastina Pie and the Limoncello Tiramisù were excellent – and the biscotti were perfection.

The Hot Cross Buns were another surprise. I had never made them before and they were surprisingly good – they’re going to make good ham sandwiches for lunch.

All in all, a very successful day!
