In September 2015, we hosted a degustation to celebrate the release of Jordan's second book.

We filled all the rooms of an old building with nothing but flowers and cake!

We paired 5 different cakes with their best accompaniment:

  • Blueberry, rhubarb and white chocolate cake with vanilla bean cream cheese icing, berry coulis, freeze dried rhubarb and white chocolate pieces - accompanied by brand new Lewis Road Creamery Fresh Vanilla Milk in collaboration with Heilala Vanilla
  • Flourless dark chocolate cake (gluten free) with silky ganache sprinkled with crushed raspberries, coconut and pistachios - accompanied by hot Coffee Supreme Gatuya coffee
  • Orange, almond and polenta cake (gluten and dairy free) topped with honey and an array of nuts and berries - accompanied by orange blossom whipped cream
  • Plum, lime and coconut cake with cream cheese icing, lime cured, toasted coconut and freeze dried plum - accompanied by Raglan Coconut Yoghurt and more lime curd
  • Almond butter and raspberry jam cake with almond butter cream cheese icing and freeze dried raspberries - accompanied by homemade raspberry coulis

There were two events - one private and one public, each with 100 people meaning 1,000 pieces of cake in total!

The degustation wouldn't have been what it was without the incredible flowers by our good friends Mark Antonia.

Thanks also to Brancott Estate, Coffee Supreme and Raglan Coconut Yoghurt and Lewis Road Creamery.
