Sweetness Patissere

OH MY! This lady produces some Treasures!

She had a stall at the Food for Future Fair in Chippendale which Tina was organising and Lulu and I (& Denzil by coercion) dropped by to help out. Gena runs Sweetness Patissere based in She had for sale, Lime and Lemon, Poppyseed Shortbread and Double Choco-chip Biscuits and English Toffee.

I fell in lust with the lemon lime shortbread. The zesty citrus, gave the buttery shortbread a lightness, and the poppy seeds a new different texture.

Hopefully she does more markets, I don't think I could living that long between shortbread fixes!

More photos from the event can be found here.
