Local Food Hero: Pierozek Polish Delicatessen

Have you ever walked into a shop on Edgeware Rd or Chinatown  in London and felt transported to another place? I love nothing more than walking into a deli or grocer and being immersed in the delights of another culture.

You might already know this if you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time but I’m on the search for the perfect carrot cake. I know it’s out there, I’ve tasted it and I will not rest until I’ve found it. In the meantime, I’ve found Ottolenghi’s version to be very nice, and I believe this flourless recipe to be another, very worthy entry.

AT and I ate this whole cake ourselves and so when a recipe brings out the …
