At my new fave chill spot, Luvey N Rose in Rose Street, Bokaap, there can be found a delectable shortbread that is made by an unheralded master baker, Gordon Radowsky. I’ve known Gordon pretty much forever…way back from my ballerina days when he used to watch many of my performances at what was then the Nico Malan Opera House (now Artscape). His shortbread is made up of rather exotic ingredients like pure vanilla, fennel seeds, cardamom, cinnamon, lemon & orange rind & rose water ~ so more-ish. If you’re lucky & they aren’t all out, you can get a block of delish fudge on your saucer, just to push your sugar rush over the edge & leave you hankering for more. I’ve just ordered an enormous batch from Gordon to share amongst family & friends. Not.
See the fudge?
