Heavenly Nougat


Welcome back to my Kitchen Corner…

Today we are trying out a twist on the original Jamie Oliver Chocolate celebration cake…and this one it’s not just a cake, it’s the heaven of nougat!

You can find the original recipe here!

I have never made nougat before, but I must say that if you ever try it, you will never go back to buy it again 🙂 …well, at least that’s how I feel.

You have probably noticed by now that my short chronicles are not always brand reviews…I like to play a bit with different products, find the hidden art that they could be, when placed in a contradictory scene.
