” The creative options with sugar are endless. I can caramelize it, bake it, whip it, stretch it. The results are always something that make people happy.” Gena Karpf, Sweetness.
I recently had the honour of meeting Gena at the Noosa Food and Wine Festival. This incredible woman was so passionate about her products. Her words of wisdom, like sugar itself, made you just want to go back for more.
It’s no doubt that I’m not the only one who thinks Gena is pretty rad, in fact in 2011 her addictive Macadamia shortbread was a finalist in the Delicious Magazine Produce Awards.
This year is no different, Gena has come out guns a blazin’ with her gourmet flavoured ‘mallows, English toffee and (my personal favourite) Candied Oranges dipped in chocolate.
I was lucky enough to take home some goodies from her stall, including this ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ chocolate flavoured mallow. Yes. Chocolate! Perfect with a cup of spearmint tea or (if you are feeling creative) a killer ingredient to bake with…choc chip and choc mallow cookies anyone?
