Look where we are!! If someone had told me this time last year that we would get to this time this year so soon, I’d think that someone was crazier than a box of monkeys. I can hardly wait to wave goodbye to 2013 and what sweeter ending is there than one with chocolate?
This month, I was invited to an unforgettable chocolate feast at Four Friends Coffee, Chocolate and Tea in Crows Nest, Sydney. There we were greeted by Katze, a warm an inspiring woman with an incredible story.
Four friends was born of Katze’s debilitating auto-immune disease, which sunk her into a despair that she eventually dug her way out of. With her smooth, decedent chocolate treats, fragrant teas and coffee, she set out to bring those around her small portions of happiness and a place to be revitalised.
We were presented with an almost too pretty to eat tasting plate and we chatted to Katze on the plush purple sofas as we made our way through macarons, handmade chocolaty creations and what was probably the best lava cake I have ever dived into.
The delicate teas we chose out of the forty flavours on offer balanced out the sweetness nicely.
Four friends is a little island of happiness to which I will be returning; perhaps with friends or even a good book. You can find them at 5/29 Holstermann St. Crows Nest (for heavens sake, do find them, you won’t regret it!) and reach them on 0415 068 881.
I wish you all a revitalising New Years Eve and a 2014 that makes 2013 look really, really lame. Thank you for all your support and encouragement during this, my first year of bloggery and I can’t wait to see you all on the other side!
Disclosure: I was a guest of Katze and the staff at Four Friends, but all the opinions expressed are my own.
